This month’s kit is called Jolly Gingerbread…it makes some cute little gift card holders…here’s what they look like…
After I made 1 of each of the contents, I started surfing the internet for inspiration on what I could do with my contents of this kit. There were so many, it was almost overwhelming! 🙂 I remembered that we had made gingerbread houses at Christmas a few times…so I dug around in my Christmas pictures and found some…then I looked for a scrapbooking challenge to help inspire me…and found this one from Scrap Our Stash. I don’t think I have ever entered anything in their challenges because I haven’t scrapped for quite awhile, but I know I am missing it and so I needed this to spur me on.
And here is my interpretation…
I found some water color paper in the Playing with Patterns DSP pack and I used a chipboard circle from my stash and covered it with a sheet of the DSP. I also did some water coloring with an Aqua Painter. I backed the pictures with Cinnamon Cider cardstock and used a 12×12 sheet of Daffodil Delight cardstock from the Brights collection for the base page. I used the Playful Alphabet with foam backing on it for the title. WOWZA! The new Stampin’ Cut & Embossing machine really did cut through the paper and the foam!! I was amazed! It’s gonna be a new favorite, I can tell!
I used a gingerbread house and the candies from the Paper Pumpkin kit, as well as the label. I really like how this turned out. Even though it is not a traditionally colored Christmas page, it really works with the colorfulness of the candies in the pictures. What do you think? I would love to read your comments!
