HK Memory Chest Kit Club - December 2015

Hi there. Can you believe we are in the last month of the year? How quickly has this year passed by? So much has happened and yet sometimes, all these events seem to fade from your memory. This is why I love scrapbooking - we get to put those moments down to look back on in the future.

December also brings us to the HKMC Christmas kit. Beautiful vintage Christmas colours and images from Prima Marketing, mixed with some amazing mediums make this kit so fun to work with.

The sketch for this month:

 Holiday Cookies
Gorgeous vintage papers to play with and add lots of dimension to. The photos were taken two Christmas' ago when Miss C made Christmas bear cookies for all of us.
I punched a bit of the border and added the lace behind. For the snowflakes, I added glossy accents and sprinkled over silver glitter. Once dry, I dabbed the ends with Aleene's glitter snow.
I sprayed the white leaves green and that even turned the glitter around the edges green - love it.

I kept this page brighter to go with the modern Christmas trees in the photos. I added the glitter snow through a stencil for the background.
The flowers are so pretty and a bow completes the little cluster.
I added some gold glitter glue over the star to make it shine a bit more.

The Nutcracker
Having mixed mediums in the kit inspired me to play around with more ideas, hence the collage background.
I collaged the background before adding a thin layer of gesso. I then used gelatos to "frame" each collage piece. I also added the music paper in places. I sprayed the leaves gold this time to match the flower cluster.
I love bringing out my toy soldier die every year and this time, I made him into a nutcracker to go with the photos.

Happy Holidays Display Plaque
I used a Tim Holtz canvas frame for the base, collaged on some the kit paper and added a layer of clear crackle paint.
I added some gold paint on the base and added gold microbeads to the corners. I die cut the sentiment from some Heidi Swapp glitter paper. I had some white flowers in my stash, which I sprayed red.
I love this Santa - just so old school. I finished off the layout with generous slathering of the glitter snow.
