Hello, Susanne here today, to show you my December project kit. My project required limited supplies, so in true stash-busting counterfeiting style, I started with the leftovers from Teresa Collins’ Santa’s List collection from 2013. I love the simplicity of this color scheme: white, cream, kraft and red with a touch of glitter.
Here are the pieces to my kit – just three pieces of the double-sided 12 x 12 cardstock, because that is all I had.
And more than half the pieces of the die-cut sheet:
Plus the chipboard buttons and stamp set:
I cut the paper judiciously so that the resulting 3 x 4 and 4 x 6 cards incorporated the most attractive parts of the design, and of course, kept all the other bits too. Here is what it looks like after slicing and dicing:
Then I set about choosing a limited number of additional embellishments, so that it became a true kit and not just a collection – buttons in 2 colors, black ring eyelets, flowers dyed several years ago, a roller stamp, chipboard from the bits box, and an old rub-on alphabet. And that makes up my kit called Santa’s Check-Check List (because he checks his list twice):
Come back tomorrow and see what my project was! Given my kit’s name and the fact that it uses paper the size of pocket cards, you should only need 1 or 2 guesses – okay, maybe 3, if your mind is already dancing with sugar-plummy Christmas plans of your own.
In the meantime, if you follow this link, you will see Teresa Collins’ design team rock this collection over and over again. And here’s a Pinterest® search to really get you going! Some inspiration peeks:
Ho ho ho!
