Up the Street December Kits are AVAILABLE NOW!


Below are some  projects made with the MAIN kit and the Add-on Kit.

I have had a wonderful time recalling last year's memories of Christmas when putting together layouts for this kit release.

I found the BEST gift for my husband last year, a Bruce Springsteen mug and he loved it!  I actually just handed him a cup of coffee on Christmas morning in his new mug and it took him FOREVER to notice it!

I used the kit's embossing powder to make the swirls (using a stamp from Unity Stamp Co.), and then applied some red stickles.

My Top 5 FAVOURITE Things in This Kit:
  • Webster's Pages Trims
  • Webster's Pages Letter Stickers
  • The STAR pins
  • Bo Bunny Chipboard Pieces

Here is my sweet daughter a couple years back.  I thought this was a perfect Dear Santa face.  I used the Basic Grey presents to line the photo and I also used some of that gorgeous butter cream trim!

On the very right, I embossed some green cardstock and painted the raised parts with cream paint.

And there is an awesome stamp that comes in the kit from Inkadinkado - PERFECT for present toppers!  I stamped them on cream cardstock, trimmed them, then inked around the edge with Old Paper Distress Ink.  I coloured the image with Copics and used U-Cut-It foam from Glue Arts to give it 3D dimension.

I cut out some small circles with the U-Cut-It foam (using my Cuttlebug and Spellbinders) to make the Present Toppers ready to go for Christmas presents.

I STILL HAVE MORE TO SHOW YOU!  The kit is SO big that so far, I've made 5 layouts and the present toppers!  And I still plan on making more!
