Hello everyone! I don't know about you, but I love to make lists. I make them all the time, everyday, but I make ones every month too. Sometimes they are just a reminder to pull out my camera and take some pictures, or something to push me a little further. Make me think outside the box. And I like this because sometimes it sends us on little adventures. December was a little different, we had a ton going on, family and health issues, so no real big adventures, but still Christmas fun, so I thought I would share my list and the way I decided to dress it up.
Usually I start out with my list and that's it, btu this past year I have been playing around a little more with how I do things. Why not dress it up and make it pretty? So I do that. I got the beautiful Holiday magic Seasonal kit and oh man was I looking forward to it! I love Pinkfresh Studio and this Christmas/Holiday collection was fantastic! I started by pulling some washi from my stash and running it across the top where I was going to put my title, then pulling the alphas from the kit and putting my title down. As you can see I started writing my list right down the left hand side of my page and then realized I didn't have to do that, I could lay a little with it if I wanted. So, I stopped what I was doing and started digging through the ephemer that came in the kit.
I pulled out everything I thought I would use, well really I pulled out everything lol. I started to layer pieces and play with how I wanted things laid out on my pages and started sticking them down. I distressed the edges and layered paper on paper, along with puffy stickers. And then I went back to writing my list. I'm not big on sharing my handwriting, not a fan of it or the mess ups I make but hey its part of it alot of the time right?
At this point this page was done and I could have left it at that but I wanted to still play with all the pretty thing and I had already taken some pictures of some of my decorations, so I decided to play on the next page too and add a little journaling.
So I moved to the next page, layed my pictures where I wanted them and started digging through my ephemera again. I wanted to have the washi on both pages, another something to bring them together so I pulled that back out and put it on the top and bottom of my page. Once I was done with that, I thought that the washi had made a great anchor for those cute little houses, so I distressed them too and stuck them down. I finished everything off by adding some of the gorgeous sequins that come in the kit and that was it.
This really didn't take me long to make and I like how it turned out. I don't know about you, but sometimes I need to do something that is like a slate cleaner. Something that doesn't take much thought and you can just do freely. This, making my lists and decorating them, is one of those things for me. Is fun and relaxing and seems to rejuvenate me for scrapping when I'm having a block. Sometimes it's getting messy with mixed media that helps, other times its making my lists and making them pretty. What about you? What do you do when you have scrappy block?
Hi friends! Dana here today sharing a festive scrapbook layout using the Pretty Little Studio Frosty & Friends Seasonal Kit. My oldest child dressed up as Rudolph for their holiday A Capella performance and this paper collection was absolutely perfect for documenting that occasion. The fun mix of patterned papers and the chipboard and die-cut reindeer embellishments made for a super fun project!
I used the die-cut tags from the kit to create a layered base for my photo. Once the tags were secured to the page, I added die-cut and sticker sentiments and a twine bow.
I used Distress Markers to color the chipboard reindeer and trees.
I decorated the areas surrounding the chipboard embellishments with die-cut hearts and stars and some handwritten journaling.
Thanks for stopping by today! If you like memory keeping with vintage inspired prints and images, check out the Pretty Little Studio products in the Clique Store.

Happy Holidays Y'all!! Michelle here, still plugging away at all things holidays! Today I'm sharing a mixed media journal entry made using the Rustic Christmas Seasonal kit by Simple Stories. You can also get lets of great die cuts on the Clique site that all coordinate and work great for this!
I began by using one of the stencils from the Mixed Media Christmas Kit and the green stencil butter on the upper right side of the page . After applying the stencil butter over the stencil with a palette knife and removing the stencil, I sprinkled with some fine frosted glitter to tone down the green and give it a snowy, frosted look.
I was working in my handmade journal that I made so the pages are already all prepped and ready for some artsy goodness. Those Rustic Christmas dies cuts just made everything so quick and easy.
I applied some molding paste to the bottom of the page and to give an area to sprinkle some coarse clear glitter and make it look nice and snowy.
And of coarse I inked up all my die cuts before layering them up with glue dots and pop dots to give some extra dimension.
Thank you all for stopping by and I hope you were inspired to make something beautiful!
