01012021 January CKC Kit Reveal


Oh, what a lot of hopes we have pinned on you after the past year. I'm so blessed that MY hope is first in my Saviour, Jesus Christ. He is always good, and always right - no matter what things look like in human terms :)

 In a moment we will look at our January 2021 inspiration kit chosen by Master Forger of Ceremonies Lisa, but first let's meet our January Guest Designer, Tamara! Visit her blog HERE 

Lisa says, I've known her for a few years since we were on the Scrapabilly team together and she's awesome! I love her scrapbooking pages, her sewing and her adorable cats not to mention her papercrafting in general. And she makes the most fabulously impressive Christmas cards too - I'm trying to find the time to card-lift her designs and see if I can make some as gorgeous as hers!

 This is one of her beautiful cards:


Lisa shared this about her choice:  I've gone for a new-to-me kit club and have decided to select the Christmas kit. I know that I often do that for January but I suspect that some of us would like to scrap some Christmas memories from the festive season that has just passed, or at the least we still feel a little bit jolly!
I think it's festive enough if you wanted to go down that route or there are enough non seasonal colours and themes that you can tweak it in that direction, too. There are great photos of all the elements at the link, including a and b-sides which might help if you don't want a jolly kit. 

  For those in the Southern Hemisphere, I hope you are able to pick out the greenery and softer tones to make something that works for you in the middle of summer. It may not be a beach but maybe you can find a starting point that works - or maybe there's your challenge?

Anyway, I hope you like it and can be inspired to start your creative 2021!

Not Just For Boys Kit Club Flurries Deluxe Theme Kit

So first, let's look at my papers, A & B-sides:

 2008 The Paper Studio "Wood Fence" (stamped), October Afternoon/Silent Night "White Christmas", 2016 Simple Stories/Winter Wonderland 3x4" journal cards, 2017 Felicity Jane/London pinstripe, 2015 BasicGrey/Tea Garden "Mint", 2016 Maggie Holmes/Gather woodgrain, Felicity Jane (no branding strip), 2019 Crate Paper/Heritage "Library".
I also tossed in two more pages of the 2016 Simple Stories/Winter Wonderland pocket cards +  their 6x6" paper pad.
 So, here's my "Snowflakes" take!

Plus a few extras:

I feel like this is a pretty manageable size kit for killing it, which I am resolved to do in 2021. I have set up a wooden cheese box on my table to hold scraps in plain sight so they will get used up, starting with an international paper scrap swap that came from Finland! #excited

Now get yourself on to Lori's fabulous reveal!

  4. I'm especially loving the selection of fun embellishments in your kit! I think you'll enjoy this one!

  5. Yes a definite woodsy/snowy kit. I love it and I'm lusting after those wooden framed button thingys.

    1. 2018 PinkFresh Studio "Holiday vibes" wood button stickers - aren't they fab?

  6. Love your paper and embellishment choices! I kick myself for not buying more of the Simple Stories Winter Wonderland collection - I think I only got a couple of the papers - and I love it! Love those wooden buttons too. Looking forward to seeing what you create!

  7. Lots of good stuff in there. You've taken the kit in a bit more sophisticated direction in my opinion. Enjoy!

    1. Thank you so much! I hadn't really thought of it that way, but as I look at my pages so far, you just may be right :D
