Happy New Year!
It’s almost 2015. I’m always so excited when I get my kit that I make a layout usually pretty quickly after it comes. I like to make my layouts in advance. It motivates me to look at it and think about the pocket shapes I need to fill. This month’s Take Ten Kit December 2014 kit was perfect! I like all of the cards and the colors.
Above is the left side of my 2 page January 2015 layout.

I cut up several cards to make this layout.
Even though I haven’t seen snow in about 7 years I still like the snowy, white, glittery, winter theme. So, to tie together all of the pieces, you will see that I put little bits of glitter paper here and there.
I wanted to use this TTK blue ‘Brand New Year’ card so I cut it up and spread it out. I didn’t want to cover it with a photo!
I love this TTK grey arrow acrylic!
For the little dots I just used 2 sizes of a hole punch and used what came out.

This card from Take Ten Kits goes perfectly with my ‘Wish it snowed in California’ theme. Again, I used the dots that came out from 2 different sized hole punches.
Here is the layout in my Project Life Album for my pocket scrapbook layouts. I had these month layout dividers from a gift so I thought I’d use them. Luckily for me, this one matched!

Below is the entire Take Ten Kits December 2014 kit! I’m saving the other pieces for an upcoming layout. The ‘He Said, She Said’ cards look perfect for my wedding anniversary in February… And #Selfie? I could use that EVeRy month!!

I had the perfect shopping cards both large and small from Take Ten Kits for my shopping layout!
This layout wasn’t too fussy and didn’t have a lot of embellishments but the graphics were so great it didn’t need any!

I love paper feathers. i have been using them in scrapbook layouts but also as part of gift packaging. I tie them with a string and they make the packages so cute. I will have to photograph the next gift I use one on.
These feather are unfinished. I need to have my husband sew them- he’s better than I am. I used a few papers that I thought will be great for autumn and winter. I used WRMK paper ‘Indian Summer’ as well as other papers. I used gold, silver and black paint as well as Mr. Huey white spray sprinkled and sprayed.
I drew my own feather shapes like I did in one of my first blog posts and then I copied them into three different sizes so they can be layered. I like the way they came out so far!
