Hi everyone!  It's December kit time!  I am loving the great wintery colors that Amy put together and I  was so excited to see sheets of wood grain paper in this kit too.  So, of course, I had do my first layout with it!  I used some pictures from this past February.  (so glad I finally got them scrapped)  Yep. That wood grain paper is so great!  I really like the rustic feel it gives to the page. 
I was having so much fun with the kit,  I made another layout.  This kit really makes it easy to put pages together.  I layered several of the papers and then added the big title.  (the big alphas for the title are part of the Timbergrove line but are not included with the kit.  The little ones are part of the kit and they are so cute!)  The star stickers are part of the sticker sheet and I gave them some dimension by adhering them with a pop dot. 
With the scraps I had from the above layout, I had to make a card.  I added one of the cute little envelopes in the kit and put the snowflakes and sentiment right on it.  Now I have a card to send out and I used up scraps! 
I will be making a lot more with this kit and if you bought it over at BOAF I hope you start scrapping with it.  Make sure you post your creations in our gallery!

Challenge at the Blog!

We've started a new thing at Birds of a Feather.  Instead of posting techniques for you, the design team is posting a new challenge every Sunday!  I think this is a great way to get people scrapping.  This past Sunday was my turn and I made it an easy one...if you like to make cards. 

If you are interested in checking out the challenge just head on over to the blog and join in!  It's really easy and lets you use up some of your scraps!
