Scrap That! December “Waiting for Santa” Kit Blog Hop!

Hello everyone and welcome to the  Scrap That! December Pion Design “Waiting for Santa” Kit Reveal Blog Hop!

If you have arrived here from the Pion Design's blog you are in the right spot.  We have a total of 8 beautiful blogs for you to see and I just know you will love each and every one!  To start at the beginning of the hop just click here to be taken to the Scrap That! blog to get the full blog rotation.

We are so excited to present this kit to you! These exquisite papers from Pion Design in Sweden are unlike any other papers we have seen and are breathtakingly beautiful and of the highest quality.


Main Kit Contents

I used the main kit contents to create my first layout titled "Angel."  I created custom embellishments using various punches and dies.  The large holly and branches were created using my Tim Holtz Holly Die by Sizzix.  I fell in love with this die set and it is quick and easy to use.  Once I die cut my pieces, I covered them with Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint and sprinkled glitter on each piece while the paint was still wet.  While you can't really see the full sparkle in the photo, in real life, these pieces really shine.

Additional Supplies:  Holly Die (Sizzix - Tim Holtz); Punches (Martha Stewart Crafts); Distress Crackle Paint (Ranger);  Glimmer Mist (Tattered Angels); Perfect Pearls (Ranger); Glitter (Making Memories); Photo (Tom Clare); Adhesives (Scotch ATG, Helmar's 450 Quick Dry)


Main and Embellishment Kits

My next layout is definitely more traditional.  I used lots of gorgeous chipboard from Dusty Attic and Want2Scrap to adorn my circle design.  I painted each of the holly chipboard pieces with Smooch Ink in Lucious Lime and the large chipboard framing my photo was covered with Stickles in Candy Cane. 

The kit included beautiful doilies which I sprayed with various colors of Glimmer Mist, Perfect Pearls and Distress Ink. 

Additional Supplies: Holly Die (Sizzix - Tim Holtz); Smooch Ink (Clearsnap); Title (Anna Griffin); Stickles (Ranger); Perfect Pearls (Ranger); Distress Crackle Paint (Ranger); Distress Ink (Ranger); Photo (Poznyakov; Jumbo Circle Cutter (Creative Memories); Scallop Edge Scissors (Fiskars); Pearl Pen - Cream (Viva Decor); Adhesives (Scotch ATG, Helmar's 450 Quick Dry); Chipboard (Want2Scrap); Glimmer Mist (Tattered Angels)


Main Kit Contents

I had so much fun with this one!  This is one of my all time favorite photos of my friend's son during one of our big winter's two years ago.  I just love the expression of joy on his little face.

A few years ago I created hills on a winter layout and thought it would be fun to draw a curved design to resemble a ski slope. (a very steep one at that! lol)   I tucked the photo in between the papers so that it appears he is sliding down the slope.  

This design is very simple but offers lots of movement.  I added only two design elements, the punched circles and the die cut swirls.  The title sticker is made by Anna Griffin and works perfectly with the papers and design.

Additional Supplies: Swirls Die (Lifestyle Crafts); Circle Punch (EK Success); Distress Ink - Iced Spruce (Ranger); Pearl Pen - Cream (Viva Decor); Ribbon (May Arts); Tiny Attacher (Tim Holtz); Title Die Cut (Anna Griffin); Adhesives (Scotch ATG, Helmar's 450 Quick Dry)

The Sketch

This month I had the honor of creating the sketch for this beautiful kit.  Be sure to give it a try!
