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.

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.
