Happy December Layout | Missy Whidden

Happy Sunday, friends!  Have you gotten your 2017 December Hip Kits yet?  I got mine a few days ago and couldn’t wait to tear into that box!   I created this fun and bright holiday layout using items that aren’t necessarily holiday related.  I was inspired by one of Irit’s gorgeous watercolor patterned papers from the Main Kit.  I used the stars from one of Kim Watson’s cut files…it was from Day 1 of the 12 Days of Giving cut files.  I used some of the Shimmerz from the Color Kit on the background as well as some other Shimmerz from previous Color Kits.  I fussy cut “December” from one of the Project Life cards…it was perfect for my title!

I color matched the watercolor to the stars, and I just love the texture and shades of color.  I added in a few of the Pinkfresh Puffy Star stickers from the Embellishment Kit and lots of the Vicki Boutin Enamel Dots from the Main Kit.


I used one of the Crate Paper die cut frames here under my photo and another cute Vicki Boutin sticker.  I created a cute rainbow of puffy stars right on top of the photo strip.


I stitched through the title and added “Happy” which is part of the Crate Paper Good Vibes Thickers pack in the Main Kit.

This was a blast to create!  I hope it gives you some ideas on how to use these kits for a holiday page.  Think outside the box.   You don’t  have to just limit yourself to only red and green if you don’t want to 🙂  Be sure to check out my process video here to see how this all came together!

Have a great week!
