Reveal Day: December Kits at My Creative Scrapbook

Yay!  It's the 5th of the month and reveal day for My Creative Scrapbook.  This month, I worked with the Creative Kit, which featured Bo Bunny's Mistletoe.  It's a bright and cheery line in classic Christmas colors. I loved this fun and happy collection. 

I made a mix of layouts and altered projects with this kit. Today, I am going to post the layouts and I'll post the altered projects with tutorials next week.  

First up is a visit to Santa. Or rather, waiting in line to see Santa.


On this layout, I made a big photo mat from the red dot paper to ground my page. I put a photo in the center and a large piece of chipboard on the left. On the right, I wanted to add my journaling, but the journaling card was too small in scale and made the layout unbalanced. 


To give the right side more visual weight, I made a pocket for the journaling card. Easy peasy. I cut a piece of patterned paper a bit bigger than the journaling card, backed the pocket with cardstock and stitched it together on three sides with red thread. 


My second layout documents our Christmas cookie tradition. Mom has been using this same recipe for Christmas cookies since the 1960s and it just doesn't feel like the holidays without these. They are a hands down favorite for the whole family.


Here's a closeup of the cute gingerbread people:


Here's is a photo of the MCS December Creative Kit.


The design team has done amazing work with the December kits, especially altered projects.  You can see all the projects in the design team gallery.  Some of the other kits this month featured Authentique, Teresa Collins, Kaisercraft and Fancy Pants Designs.  The team will have tutorials posted every day this month on the My Creative Scrapbook blog. Come have a peek!
