Good morning, friends! It's time for the January kit reveal at Midnight Rooster! This kit was full of great products - in lots of red, green, yellow and cream. Perfect for scrapping some of those new Christmas photos!
For my first layout, I did just that! My little girls are obsessed with mommy and daddy's cell phones so they were delighted to get their own "cell" phones for Christmas this year. I went a little punch crazy this month and accented my layout with snowflake punches by Martha Stewart and Marvy Uchida and a wavy border punch by EK Success. I love that Echo Park number paper - perfect for a layout about phones!
I also misted a couple tags and accented them with punches, the buttons in the kit and twine.
For my second layout, again a little punch crazy and I know this isn't the best photo ever but it's a moment I wanted to document. Yes, I seriously did bawl like a baby at the happiest place on earth. I was overcome with emotion when I saw Cinderella's castle for the first time. It felt like a childhood dream come true - and I'm not ashamed to admit it. :)
I really loved the red thickers in this month kit and they just screamed "Disney layout" to me! :) I added the black Basic Grey stickers from my stash and a couple Jenni Bowlin labels to make my "Mickey Mouse".
I think this ended up as my favorite layout this month. I spent several days in December baking tons of holiday treats and tried some (new to me) family favorite recipes of my grandma's. I LOVE to bake! I misted my kraft cardstock background with Tattered Angels turquoise mist and white mist by Studio Calico. The text background paper is from the Modern Homemaker collection by October Afternoon along with the red strip at the bottom. I used a free application called Poladroid to create that cool effect on my photo!
The little butterfly stick pins are an exclusive item in the kit this month! The journaling label was cut out of Studio Calico patterned paper.
All of the patterned papers on the banner are included in the kit but I added the chipboard by Maya Road from my stash.
Finally, here is my card for this month. "Get Well" seemed appropriate after the last few weeks we had around here! :) All of the patterned papers are by October Afternoon and the corrugated flower is Jillibean Soup (and in the kit). See another butterfly pin?
And, now time for this month's mini kit giveaway! Isn't this mini kit so bright and fun?! YUM!!!
