As soon as I saw the sketch at Let’s Get Sketchy I new that it would be a great use of a 3X4 card from my CKC forgeries. Then I saw the challenge at Kraft+ and I knew I had to use the coffee and twinkle lights card. The challenge at Kraft+ is to scrap about coffee using kraft card stock for the base. My CKC kit contained coffee cup pp and it was about time I used my coffee stain stencil.
I went with a photo taken at Costa during a Christmas shopping trip, of Strawberry’s festive chocolate flake cake and hot chocolate replete with cocoa powder snowflake. I pulled in a doily and few stickers from Shimelle’s Glitter Girl collection. I punched some mini snowflakes from the blue of the coffee cup paper and made some holly leaf embellishments using a stamp and some red gems.
It took me a long time to think of a suitable title for the page. I eventually went with cocoa flakes – for the cakes and the cocoa snowflake in the photo.
I wasn’t sure what to do about it. The design didn’t lend itself to covering the area with patterned paper. I slept on it and decided to try snowflakes punched from Kraft card.
I put a couple over the ink pad lines and then scattered a few more across the page. I think that does the job nicely. I’m getting close to the end of my Counterfeit kit now and I did some more scrapping last night and this morning. This is the title page for my Disney Christmas album, inspired by Shimelle’s Most Magical Scrapbook course.
I chose the pink snowflakes paper to co-ordinate with the pink of the castle and pulled in some extra stickers to cover the overcast sky and a shrinkles Santa Mickey as the focal embellishment. I had to stick him to the white floral wreath card with diamond glaze because he wasn’t quite flat. I’m linking this with Studio Challenges, using snowflakes/winter theme.
There’s just two more big photo pages to complete and a different version of the Lets Get Sketchy challenge to finish (so that I can link up to their site with that one, because Kraft+ don’t allow entries to be linked to other challenges) and then I really will be down to just scraps. It’s all laid out on my scrap table and I’m determined to get it all wrapped up this weekend. What do you have planned?
