Hey everyone! Christmas is so close, and I am almost ready!! One of the last things I do to prepare is a bunch of baking and this past weekend that included a crazy amount of cookie baking (I think its my sons favorite activity). So here I am scrapbooking a few instagram pictures of the cookies we made on the weekend.
I am a subscriber to the Hip Kit Club scrapbooking kit, and on the member forum on facebook, Kimberly gave us a weekend challenge and this is the layout I did for the challenge. The recipe that needed to be used for the challenge was using an image she posted as inspiration for the layout (that is where my stenciled backround came in to play), include a minimum of three fonts in your title, use stamping on your project (this is difficult to see on my layout but on the bright green paper I stamped falling snow in versamark and embossed it in silver), include gold or silver, and use a minimum of three patterned papers.
It was a challenge for me to make sure I had everything included that is for sure! I rarely follow a recipe or sketch for my layouts, but it was fun to play along!

Hey everyone! I have recently signed up for the Hip Kit Club monthly kits, Being as though I live in Canada, I have opted for shipping two kits together to save a few dollars, which means that I have just received the October and November kits from them (I actually got them a couple of weeks ago but have just started playing with them
I really do love these kits so far, there is a process video at the end of this blog post.
Is it sad, that at the time of writing this blog post, I am only 3 layouts into these 2 kits and I can not wait to get my hand on the December and January kits.
So this is my first layout using the November Shake it off kit and add on from Scraptastic. I really do love this kit, but being in Canada, these kits seem to take forever to get to me… like 1 1/2 weeks longer then another kit club I subscribe to that shipped 3 days after this one. Oh well I ❤ it regardless.
Aside from the kit and add-on, things added from my stash were Canson 140lbs watercolour paper, my Smash book roller date stamp, Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays in a coral and a yellow (I don’t have the colours beside me at the moment but if you would like to know just leave me a comment and I will get them for you, they were both Flat Fabio’s), as well as I cut down one of the polka dot acetate dividers from PL, and finally some beloved enamel dots from my stash.
I love taking things apart, like that stitched pocket here, I pulled the tag out of it, took the remember this off of the front added one of the fabric banner pieces and then put the remember this back on the front. Layers make me happy even if they are simple.
In the background here you can see that I started with some Golden Light Molding paste, and a butterfly stencil from prima.
This little tag with the crate paper on it was ever so cute but it was too tall for what I wanted… easy fix! Just cut it in half and glue it back together the crate paper hides the joint perfectly, later a few stickers from the sticker sheet and it is done!
I have been working on these pages for a while now, my little sister got married in August and I have been slowly completing layouts for her book. That is why, unlike most of my layouts, there is no journaling on this page, I leave that for her to do.
