Flying Unicorn December Kit of the Month Reveal! (long post)

Hello, scrappy world! Time for another Kit of the Month reveal at The Flying Unicorn Store. This month' s kit is called Sugarplum Dreams and is chock full of wonderful papers and embellishmetns to scrap those wonderful holiday memories or make a stack of Christmas cards for those you care about! And of course, there is the OTP project  .. a reindeer .. and it's the cutest thing ever!

 There are no sign ups, no membership, once they are gone, they are gone ! Kits are $31.99 + $8.95 shipping USA and $16.95 International. And oh my goodness ...You are going to LOVE this kit!

I am so excited to share a little of what I did with mine!

First, a page of myself and my dd's last year with Santa  We have an annual Girls Shopping Day every year and sometimes they will pose for me with the Big Guy! Anway, I loved the background paper on this page so much that I scanned it and hope to print some more for future use .. a gorgeous red damask that is not just for Christmas! I did lots of layers and distressing, added a poinsettia floral stem from last year plus 2 kinds of ribbon (love my crinkle ribbon, I'm addicted!) and some pearls and an embellie that I had on hand.

This is a new photo of dgd MacKenzie that I chose to use on this decorative pp. I cut out the top image and then elevated it with pop dots to make it look like a transom above the door. Around my photo I've added gauze and shaped it to resemble a wreath. Then I placed some flowers and buttons around it and tied some gauze bows. The large red flowers were tan but I have Glimmer Misted them with Burnt Red, then embellished them with Gesso and added in some Melissa Frances chandeliers that were from the kit. So pretty. I chose my title because every year, we seem to have a grandchild graduating from highschool or college. Never fails that we are always adding one more thing to our already hectic schedule. What can you do but laugh and attend?!

Nothing too special here ... just the lovely die cut piece, some long strips of the pp and more crinkle ribbon and flowers. I've used my fave MS cherished hearts punch, a TH bracket, a Prima resin bird and a gorgeous Dusty Attic piece that I painted green, then added Glimmer Glam to it in green. And pearls all around the mat. Finally got this photo from last year scrapped!

Then a fun page! I was all set for this kit to be in shades of purple or plum ... sugarplums, you see. But it wasn't. So I used this piece of Core'dinations cardstock, sanded it and went "plum" crazy. I used a Dusty Attic piece as a mask and Glimmer Misted in Sugar Plum Fairy. I've also used the DA hat rack painted with Cranberry Zing. Then added some Petaloo florals and Websters bloomers. Tucked around are a Websters Pages silhouette and a Melissa Frances resin swag. The "HIP" alphas are from the kit but "chick" was cut using my Cricut and Gypsy font. Lots of pearls and rhinestones and I called it a wrap! (DGD Marianne is our gracious and oh so funny model!)

Next. I did a few Christmas cards. Don't faint! I do DO an occasional card! These went so fast that I amazed myself! The lower right hand card with the deer is doubling as a DT project for SOUS tomorrow.

Lastly, my little reindeer. Kept it very simple! He is painted gold with gold Glitter Glam on his antlers. Then a nice bow and a Christmas pick finish him off.

Well, so are you ready to order your kit? Then fly on over to the Flying Unicorn Store and get yours before they are sold out!
