Let me first wish you a very HAPPY NEW YEAR! Crazy how fast 2015 seemed to fly for me. Hoping 2016 will go a little slower :) I also want to say thank you for visiting my little blog throughout the year; I'm incredibly grateful that you spend your time here so thank you!
The January CTK kits are finally out! WOHOO! There is so much goodness to love in this month's kits! Thought I'd share just a couple today and a few later in the week (and one will be up on the CTK blog this week too!)
First up is this one. Went with black and white with a few pops of colour. This features paper/thickers from the Add-on kit plus extra from Sprinkles and Embellishment kits.
I love B&W photo's against a white background. To me, they make the photo "pop", but I know that's not a feeling shared by everyone ;)
Next up I have a layout using the Add-on kit only.
I have to confess - I have mixed feelings about this layout. I actually re-created this 3 times, lol. Each time the background was different but I did save different elements from each attempt so they were not a complete waste ;)
And last one for today has a combination of papers from each of the kits!
I just had to make a page about the tree before I ripped it down :) Took our tree down a bit earlier than usual this year; just woke up one morning with this need to take it all down - so that's what I did!
Tried my hand at hand-cut lettering and it was so much fun! I wanted to include a verse of the "Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree" but I went without 'cause I liked it well enough and I couldn't figure out where to put the journalling lol. But when I look at this I start humming the song in my head.. Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree, Such pleasure do you bring me! Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree, Such pleasure do you bring me! For every year this Christmas tree, Brings to us such joy and glee. Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree, Such pleasure do you bring me! HA!
As mentioned earlier, this one has paper from all the kits (Main, Pocket Life & Add-on) plus a few little embellishments from the Sprinkles & Embellishment kits).
And that's it for today! What is your favourite from this month's kits?
Thank you so much for stopping by! Hope your holiday break (if you had one!) has been a wonderful one. I've worked on and off during the Chrissy/New year break (but only half days!) - although sadly it's all back to normal next week. Boo, haha.
Stay safe :) Em xo
