Kylie from Shop'n'Crop has provided the inspiration kit.
A Christmas gift from my sister, loved that it fit and wore it to church that morning.
I just loved those greens and blues for a January month makes me think of spring. I love the navy that seems to be seen trending so far this year and good to see dollies still coming out in kits (my favorite). My kit:
The 1st paper I came across was the one with all the various circles on it and that started off my kit and I pulled my papers with that for my inspiration and when I seen the kit I knew the 2 6X6 pads I wanted to use, just added the 4X6 mat stacks for some extra choices especially for cards.
My mix media stuff I pulled including stamps that had the doilies on them, thought they would be some fun additions to my layouts, just a night of stamping to do some ahead I see in my future. I also added a waterbrush something I've not yet tried, been in my stash quite a while and still in the package.
My alphas a mix of small and large, partial packs I would love to get used up this month not sure what kind of titles I'll be able to create with them.
My embellishments include rubons, die cut bows I would love to get out of my stash, an 8X8 paper kit that I thought went great with this and see it being used up fairly quickly, wood veneer doilies I purchased last Christmas and never used and a pack of recollections wood veneer I got for Christmas this year, ribbons, the pack of standouts I want to get used up, Urban Market chipboard stickers another one I want to get used up. The butterfly stickers I think I've had that in my stash for a very long time :) a good time to use it up! Some adhesive gems and some enamel dots that just match this kit so well. I slimmed down my choices so I may have a chance to use them up.
Also I reserve the right to use out of my stash anything I may need, cardstock, stamps, inks and so on. I belong to 2 FB groups that have challenges going on and 1 is a bashket that I have 20 items in to use up so access to that too and for the other group were doing a 30 challenge of flat stickers so they may pop in once in awhile, my alphas are part of that challenge too.
So a great start to crafting for January :) I have a few DT projects to do and a crop this weekend that this kit will definitely go with me and lots of 2016 photos coming in that need scrap besides the ones I have on hand. I also have my Christmas kit from last month on hand for when my those pictures come in and I can get my December Daily done fairly quickly :) plus I still have my 100 pattern paper challenge pile still with in reach :) A good start for my Cover To Cover class I got planned this month :)
Thanks for stopping by and I would encourage you to play along too :) it's fun to have a kit ready to go when you sit down to scrap/craft just one of the elements that help to make scrapping just a bit faster :)
