Hello there! Sharing a layout I made using the December Scraptastic kit, Just Breathe. 
Their Christmas kit is also amazing, I took a little too long deciding which kits I was going to get this month, I do have some old Christmas products I've been wanting to use up so I decided to stick with the girly kit!
Here is the first page I made using the kit and add-on!
I love all the little die cuts that come in the kits and the stickers!!!! 
I used some gold spray paint to make some splatters on the background and used the bakers twine from the kit to add a little bit of stitching to the top!

I am a bit obsessed with alpha stickers for some reason and I totally love these ones!! 
I love the little enamel stickers!!

I layered a wood veneer heart on top of the cute flag from the kit. (They never fail on making the cutest wood veneer embellishments!)

Love the tab stickers!

Don't forget to check out what the other design members are making over on the Scraptastic blog!
Have a great day!!!

Christmas Countdown Base

Hello hello!
Today I wanted to share the base of my mini using the Christmas Countdown kit and the supplies I pulled to add to the kit. I won't be adding a photo a day but I will be adding all my Christmas type photos to this lovely album. Can't wait until family come to visit!!

I went ahead and punched holes in the wood cover and papers and put them in order. I left a lot of the papers out just in case I want to make some embellishments with them. Also, nothing is permanent, I'm sure once I start adding the photos I will end up moving some pages around.

For the cover I wanted to keep most of the wood showing. I took the paint I used to paint the frame embellishments I made for the kit and added some splatters to the cover. My paint was super cold and I didn't like the way it turned out at first but once I added everything else I was happy with it. I embossed some little snowflakes to the cover, added the star die-cut that came in the kit, embossed the year on a chalkboard piece and was finished!

I went through my little labels and found a ton that go great with this kit, took a paper clip from the kit and stuck it on a page.

I took the pretty glitter paper, cut a strip and added it to the vellum envelope!

I've had this adorable green envelope forever and have been wanting to use it. Perfect for this mini :)

Clipped a custom print that came in the clip to a page.

I used a doily, glued down just the edge, stuck a tag behind, an adorable deer on top and a cute clothes pin!

Clipped on a cute bag and stuck a glittered tag inside.
