010122 CKC January Kit Reveal & Blog Hop


Cindy is our Master Forger of Ceremonies to ring in 2022! "I have picked a digital kit from Traci Reed Designs called On the Go and Going Slow. I love the colors, the large variety of elements, the variety of three sets of alphabets and of course there is the "busy as a bee" and a "snail, slug life" side. I still have the pictures to scrap of 2021 that are not all about Christmas and this will be perfect for both Christmas, Travel, birthdays or celebrations - just all-around scrapbooking."

 I loved the variety but decided to change up the color scheme for winter. I tried to capture many of the elements in the inspiration kit.

The first paper is actually a white glitter paper that is difficult to photograph. The remainder of the first row are from the Carta Bella Winter Market collection. The second row are from the Simple Stories Feelin' Frosty collection. Normally I don't use a collection but felt okay about it as the inspiration was designed as a collection.

I added some glittery mixed media products to play with, snowflake punches & wood veneers & dies & stamps, hexagon punches in a nod to the inspiration plus I love them, I even managed to find some of those alpha beads! A pack of some vintage papers from 49 and Market completes my counterfeit, along with phrase stickers, enamel dots & an ephemera pack from the Feelin' Frosty collection.

Here's a closer look:

  1. Oooh I love the snowy twist on the kit and all those snowflakes are fabulous. Can you guess my favourite in your last picture?

  2. Love the winter twist. Your snowflakes are awesome, and I like the mixed media you added. Both collections work well together and will be fun scrapping with this month.
