Finally getting around to posting some of the pages I've created using the CTK December kits! Only a week late. Ugh. I'm blaming the whole Christmas thing. So busy being all Christmasy that I forgot all about the normal stuff!
Anyway, enough blabber - here are the first three pages!
I love, LOVE that paper from Maggie Holmes'. I wanted to play on the circle shape so the planets so cut each of the letters out using a circle punch but you could totally have just left the paper as it was (unless you scrap 6x8 like me, then you'll need to chop it up, ha).
There is not a whole lot of embellishing on this one, just used the enamel dots were similar in colour and printed my journaling on vellum (from my stash). It's super simple and yet I love it; I think it's my favourite page so far ;)
Next up is a page I made about Miss Makayla's 7th birthday and the add-on kit this month is a perfect match! I fussy cut the streamer/ribbon's (which I rarely ever do, lol) to match the colours in the stickers. For soe contrast I went with the black/white strips and stitched them on angles.
More enamel dots (again picked because they matched the 3 colours of the stickers, I'm a simple person) and it was done! Another easy one :)
And last but not least is a page about myself. SHOCK! Had to get some new glasses and figured I had to make a page about it.
The alpha's are from the Pocket Life kit and they're so fun. I backed them up with a few of my favourite 6x6 papers in the kit, added a stitched border (notice it's not in white for a change?!), stuck a few of those veneer stars on and bam! - another page done. Kind of ironic, but I know my pages all look super simple - and they should theoretically take like 10 minutes to create...but they never do! Ever. It takes me so long to do simple, hours people...I know you're looking at it and thinking - ummmm, how and why.....
I really wish I could get better at making stuff. And by better I also mean faster!
And that's it for now.
I'm still working on my Christmas album (really enjoying the process this year!) so I'll be back to share the next couple pages tomorrow. Unless I forget. It's totally possible. Haha.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Take care, Em xo
