December sketch challenge - The Scrapbook Store

 Hello all ☺  The December sketch for The Scrapbook Store has been up for a few days - it's a lovely Christmas theme one, though you can make it any theme you like.  Here is the wonderful sketch:
 And here is my DT inspiration:

 I've used some very recent photo's that we took the other night - my little one had his school Kindy concert and I managed to snap a few photo's of the boys!
I've used the Kaisercraft - Gingerbread collection for this page - I love the colour palette of this collection with the mint green and red!
Here are some close-up's:
 My type writer journal work and for my title I've used some Glitz letters and WOW chipboard - the word 'wonderful' which I've just left raw.
 Here I've used some of the wooden flourishes by Kaisercraft - this one is the Christmas Star - I've coloured in using a Molotow paint pen in Lagoon Blue Pastel - the paint goes on lovely and gives great coverage on the wood!  Then I've coated in glue and added some glitter crystals to give it some sparkle - love how these have turned out ☺
The baubles have been made using the Hot Air Balloon die by Memory Box - I've simply turned it up-side-down and then added twine.
 
 Here is the other Christmas star - I've used some of the enamel dots in the background!

Product used:
Kaisercraft Wooden Flourish - Christmas Star
script stamp
espresso ink
mist
Glitz sticker letters
twine
typewriter journal work

Please check the gallery for more inspiration and we hope you can play along this month.  It's a fun sketch and you have the opportunity to win a $40.00 voucher from the store!!  Fantastic ☺

Fancy Pants - Collecting Memories - The Scrapbook Store

 Hello to you all - it's December and the start of Summer (where I live)  ☺  This year has certainly flown by so quickly and we are now at that busy time where everything seems to happen at once. 
I just wanted to share my last page that I created for The Scrapbook Store using my November DT kit - Fancy Pants Designs - the Collecting Memories collection.

 I love all the pie-graph designs that I've seen around, so by using up left-over bits from my kit, I've created my own pie-graph using the papers in this collection.  They suited this photo wonderfully!!  I've also added in some Prima too - am loving their embellishments lately.
Here are some close-up's:

 Once I had my pie-graph in place, I've matted from photo with pattern papers and then adhered to the page. I've used some of the extra large tags from this collection and tucked them in behind the photo and flower.   I love adding paper doilies and cotton thread for extra texture.  I've used a sticker from this collection and some of the buttons.  And I have one of the Prima flowers - I love how big these ones are!
 My typewriter journal work!!  I've tucked in a wooden feather from Prima - these are just adorable - I've added some ink work to them.
My title uses some Jillibean sticker letters.  I've also added in zig-zag stitching in the pie-graph design as well as misting and script stamping.
The red colour heart tucked in behind the tag is actually one of the hearts my little boy created in this photo - when he had finished them, he said I could use them for my scrapbooking ♥

Products used:
Prima Flowers - Labelle Surfside
cotton thread
paper doily
script stamp
espresso ink
heart embellishment
stitching
mist
