January Kit Club Pages (part 2)

Hi Friends!

As promised, I'm back again with some more pages I made using The Paperie's January kit.

This photo just had to be scrapped. It's a pic of Gabriel and he's about 2 1/2 years old. I love it and I also love that Poe in the background.  She used to love the snow.

Winter Rules

It's a very simple page with a lot of layers around the photo. Yesterday, I talked about the My Little Yellow Bicycle Paper Crafting Kit from their Wintering collection. I was determined to use all pieces in the pack and you can see a lot of them on this page. I also added stickers from the Fancy Pants Sticker Fundamentals sheet and the American Crafts glitter buttons from the kit to add variety and fill in any empty spaces.

And here's another page that uses more of that Paper Crafting Pack. (Told you I was determined to use it up.) This is another picture I had to scrap - Ben is about 2 days old and Gabriel is 3 1/2. This is just before we took Ben home from the hospital.

Going Home

Almost everything comes from the kit except the Studio Calico wood veneer stars. I am seriously addicted to them and they were perfect for this page.

Now onto one of my favorite pages...

Winter Fun

How cute is that picture? That was a great day for taking pictures. I got this pic, the one in the Help Help Help layout I shared yesterday and this one of Mac.

My favorite part of this page, aside from the picture, was trying something new. Do you see the stars above the picture? Well, here's what they look like up close.

Awesome, right? I used the Dylusions 5x8" Starry Starry Night stencil to put Rock Candy Distress Stickles on my page. The Stickles came with the kit so you can try this too. Use any stencil you like and layer up the Rock Candy Distress Stickles. I'm definitely doing this again - maybe with the Dylusions Let it Snow stencil.

And I also wanted to show you how I turned one of the Studio Calico wood veneer trees into an arrow. I just snipped off the trunk et voila!

I tell ya, those wood veneers from Studio Calico are pretty sweet!

And finally, here's my mixed media page.

This one was inspired by Dina Wakley.  The color palette and silhouette star remind me of her style. This page has lots of layers: multi-medium, molding paste, spray inks, gesso, stamping, paint splatters, doodling, wood veneer alphas, hidden journaling and picture.  Adding layers is a great way to build a page - you just keep adding products and techniques until you're happy with your page.  I love trying new things. It's so much fun!

So, those are all my pages for this month. I hope you feel inspired to dig into your kit and make something you love.

Thanks for stopping by!
