January Baby, it's cold outside kit from Scraptastic

I have two layouts to share using the January Baby, it's cold outside kit from Scraptastic Club. If you haven't seen the kit, add on kit, and stamp set  - -CLICK HERE. If you visit the Scraptastic Blog HERE you can read about how I have been shopping my previous kit stash to complete these pages.

Over New Years my kitty Figaro was very ill and in critical care. I took these photos when he was finally back to his healthy crazy self. We are pretty happy that he is still here with us. In addition to the kit I used a little stamp that says "its all good" from the January Tongue Tied stamp set. I stamped with white acrylic paint while I had the paint out to paint and sand the Maya Road chipboard snowflakes. I created a pocket behind the photo for the journaling on a tag.

For my second layout I wanted to give the look of the wood veneer snowflakes hanging from circle garland so I stitched some punched circles and added the snowflakes and Basic Grey Candy Buttons.

We just don't get snow in Houston so even a little flurry is enough to excite us and we have to go out and take photos.

 Have you ever cut words or shapes from your background paper? I just love the way it looks and its super easy if you have your page planned out. The best part about cutting a title from the background is that you don't have to worry about mounting all those letters in a nice straight line, it's done for you and you just put paper behind. Oh and the lined paper here is the packaging piece from behind the Basic Grey Candy buttons.
