It's the first post of the New Year here at Scrap Shotz, hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and best wishes for a very Happy New Year from all of us here at Scrap Shotz :)
Rosie here, to share with you my projects from the December 2016 kit featuring the lovely "Wintery" by Authentique line.
Let's start it off with my project showcasing the Ranger Silver Metallic Paint Dabber included in the kit:
Wishing you Winter Cheer
Simply Winter A Moment Frozen in Time
This project fits this paper line to a 't', with a photo of two of my kids sledding. I layered off cuts of three different patterned papers under my matted photo. The title is created with one of the kit Tim Holtz Idea-ology flashcards and kit stickers. The twine around the flag stickers is from my stash and I painted some of the kit snowflakes with the kit silver metallic paint.
We love sketches here at SSZ and the Creative Scrapbook Magazine January 2017 sketch is our team inspiration, here is the sketch:
I love the angles in the sketch, especially the angled title. I created a focal point photo by closely cropping 5 photos and lining them up together to look like one photo. The cropping was a great way to deal with the heads and unknown faces of other kids in my son and daughter's Christmas concert.
Get Cozy Baby, It's Warm Inside and It's Your Birthday
This sweater patterned paper feels like a big, warm hug doesn't it? The 3x4 cards were my inspiration for the title of this layout, kit alphas finish off the title. The patterns of this kit work together so easily and there is that colour combination of red and grey again :).
This next layout utilizes one of the kit add-ons, the 'wooden Christmas icons':
One?The add-ons are the house and the present painted in Distress Paint Candied Apple Red and Silver Metallic Paint Dabber respectively. The metal 'wish' token, snowflakes, flashcard and papers are from the main kit. I added some SU red ribbon and glitter card stock, the edges of the patterned papers inked with TH Black Soot Distress Ink and the mini ink tool.
I like to challenge myself to create a project or two which are opposite the theme of kit. This first layout was inspired by the kit sticker in the centre:
Hats Boots and Mittens not Required
This next layout showcases more photos from the same Hawaiian vacation as above:
Love This Wintertime Memory
Dreaming of a White Christmas
This red glitter card stock provides the perfect base for the silver metallic snowflakes. A Penny Black 'Yuletide Wishes' embossed sentiment makes this a lovely Christmas card for the coming year.
My last project for this kit reveal is this card:
I inked the edges of the papers and the sticker sentiment to make them stand out. All the patterns in this kit work so well together as you can see in this card and in all the projects!
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop in and have a look at these projects!
Happy New Year!
