Audrey's Reveal with Sugarplums kit

  There are two kits available for December, one a more traditional Christmas kit, and the other is the one I received, featuring Crate Paper Sleigh Ride!  You can see both kits HERE.

This first page is based off an exclusive sketch that comes with the kit!

I focused on the tags on this page and tried to do something a little different by matching them up with patterned papers to make them "blend" in.  You can see that I took some red paper and created some chevrons to match the ones on the tag.

I also did it on this blue tag as well.  Some circles and die cut starts outlined with white faux stitching are just about all I used for embellishment.  I also stitched a large frame on the page, too, with both real and faux stitching.

This next page is a bit different for me...because it has so many photos and they are arranged pretty linearly.  But I didn't want it too look too linear, so I used a lot of areas of embellishment. I also didn't use a lot of patterned papers, and instead, misted the background with a bit of white and a stencil.

My favorite part about this page is the title.  I used an app on my iPad called "sketch" and wrote the word "Christmas" with my finger.  I saved it as a jpeg, emailed it to myself, opened it up in SCAL2 and traced it!  Up, that is my handwriting!  :)

I fussy cut some pointed circles from some of the papers and added some scalloped circles on top.  I also cut some strips of ribbon and stitched them in rows on each side of my journaling block.

And that star piece is a leftover from the first layout above! :)

Another simple design on this next page.  Just strips of distressed papers and stickers that I machine stitched over.  I also added some tab stickers to different areas.

Behind the photo, I just used a credit card and white paint.  I also LOVE the bits of white pom pom trim in this kit, so added some strips of those, too.

The last page I did was also based off of a is todays sketch that is up on the My S&M sketch blog today. This sketch is by Kristine Davidson.   

On the background, I used my star stencil from Studio Calico and some molding paste.  I love the white on white and the texture it gave!  

Then I just used some circles from patterned papers (strategically, I might add) and did some stitching here and there.

Phew...that was a LOT of pages with this kit!  I actually have a few more projects that I made coming up over the next few weeks!  Be sure to check out the My Scraps & More store for these wonderful kits!
