Document December With Susanne: My Kit

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!


  1. This is a fabulous range of Christmassy goodness. Looking forward to the final production!

  2. Can't wait to see what you made!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Beautiful red kit :) Excited to see what you do with it :)

  4. Sweetly vintage - thanks for adding the Pinterest inspo!

  5. Classic and crisp color combination and I like the vintage feel the Santa images bring to it as well.

  6. I love the limited colour scheme -modern and yet so traditional. I loved that collection although I only bought one or two sheets. This certainly seems like a typical S kit and I love the result - yes, I can imagine what came out of it!

  7. What a beautiful collection - the stamps are a bit swoonsome, aren't they?
