SHKitClub DT Projects- December 2011

Hey everyone!
I am back to share my SHKitClub Design Team projects for December!
This months kit was pretty awesome!!
Gorgeous Prima papers with great colors that were right up my alley!
A HUGE set of Prima alpha stickers that will last you through many many projects,
some gorgeous bling, really cute embossed canvas embellishments plus much more!
Now on with the pictures!!
Chritmas Mini Album- December Kit 2011

For this mini I cut three of the papers down to 6x12 and folded them in half.
I cut 4 piece of white cardstock down to 6x12 also and folded all 8 of them in half, I then cut them a little shorter so it looks more clean and even.
I did hand stitching around the front and back (boy do I need to get myself a sewing machine! lol)
I took a chipboard snowflake that was on the cover of a mini album included in the kit and just use distress ink to color it. The stick pin was also included in the kit and I added a grey pearl to it :)
I used the awesome sticker sheet that was included for the title!
Christmas Mini Album- December Kit 2011

I used bakers twine to bind the album and added some little bells. I used small handmade embellishments for some of the pages!! (sorry no inside photos, but I do have a video here!)

Project Number Two... another mini!!
Mini Album- Front Cover- December Kit 2011

I wanted to use tags for this mini, I heat embossed each page with some white snowflakes!
For the cover I used one of the canvas embellishments (isnt it soo pretty!) and I painted it with glimmer mist. Used the awesome stickers again for the title. The green scallop was cut from one of the Pima papers.
Mini Album- Pages 1&2- December Kit 2011

On the back of the cover I made a wish list pocket. I left each page pretty simple. Every other page has a cute stitched and stamped embellishment and a big space for photos.
Mini Album- Pages 3&4- December Kit 2011

Mini Album- Pages 5&6- December Kit 2011

Mini Album- Pages 7&8- December Kit 2011

Mini Album- Pages 9&10- December Kit 2011

And the last project... a gift bag with a handmade garland!
Gift bag with paper garland!- December Kit 2011

I used two punched for the piece of the garland and stitched each piece. Its about 2 to 3 feet long. I used some stickles on a prima flower and glues it to a label from one of the papers and used a clothes pin to hold it all together!

Christmas Card

Here is a Christmas card I made for my Grandma, the front will hold a gift card
so its a two in one gift:)
I used all scraps for this card. I had a ton of old Christmas papers left over from a couple years back that I still love! I believe they are from Bo Bunny, but don't quote me on that one! lol
I did some embossing on a vintage book page and love the way the white snowflakes look on it!
The bakers twine is by Martha Stewart, the stamps I used are from Pink Paislee and Inkadinkado.

SHKitClub DT Projects!- October Kit

So here is the DT project from Scrappy Happiness Kit Club!!
And my first Design Team project EVER!!
I had so much fun with Octobers kit!
The papers included really allow you to make a ton of paper embellishments which I LOVE!
The only hard part was deciding which part of the papers would get covered!!
I also have to say that I made the entire mini and the two cards the morning after I recieved the kit! I couldn't take a break from it and it was so easy to make!
Hope you enjoy!!

This heart paper has to be my favorite!! And I love the chipboard tag! So cute!!

I couldn't get enough of cutting out these cards! I just love them :)

This blue page is probably my favorite.... do I have to choose a favorite though? hehe ;)

Love the envelope for hidden journaling and these little cards were perfect to make a pocket!

I made the top page simple, you can slide that little tag around! And on the bottom I used the biggest card as a pocket, stuffed 4 pictures in there and 2 cards!

Pretty cute right! ;)

Now for the cards!!
Ok, so this image was literally the first thing I cut out from the papers, how cute is that!?! Of course I used more of my favorite heart paper!!
These cards were so quick and easy to make! I love they way they came out :)

Thanks for stopping by!! Be sure to check out shkitclub.com for more DT projects, and of course join the club to get your kit each month!!

I have been thinking about buying a sewing machine. I don't know the first thing with it comes to sewing! I've watched some YouTube videos and it still seems complicated to someone who has never used one and never seen someone use one in person. I am in LOVE with the way sewing and scrapbooking combine. I've been drooling over layouts with sewing on them! Anyways, I need to know if this baby would be worth it and easy for a starter. I want something I can grow into and have something that will last. I know 100 stitch patterns might be too much for me but I don't want to buy one and wish I got one with more. If any of you are pros at these machines please let me know what you think about this machine and if it would be a good investment. I don't even know what a bobbin is or does! I am this new to sewing LOL! Any comments and advice would help and I would truely appreciate it!

Thank you for taking the time to help me!! You are my hero :)
Here is the link to one I've been eyeballing!!

I think what made it more real was going to his blog
And double looking this post
Tears in my eyes!!... happy ones haha.

So that being said... because I can go on and on about how excited I am..
Thank YOU again Drew!!!

Go and check out his shop!! Can't wait to work with all the beautiful kits he has to offer!

There is an AWESOME blog that I just can't get enough of. Swear I'm not a stalker but I have to check her blog every day to see if there is a new post! She recently did a spray paint project for her craft room and had a link party for the post too. I'm pretty new to link parties, but I figured I would link my tables since I used spray paint. Well I go to visit her blog and she put some of her favorite links on a post and included my tables!!

I just got super excited since it was the first time someone has featured me. You can visit the post HERE! And check out her full blog HERE! So this is my thank you for showing my little tables on your blog!!

I also want to thank everyone who has given me a visit or comment because of her post! I love reading the comments you leave and appreciate every single one! Thank you IHeart Organizing!!
