The second gorgeous kit that I got to play with this month from My Creative Scrapbook was the Main kit, this month it is jam packed full of beautiful papers from the Fancy Pants Winterland range. The colours in this range are so soft and the papers are a great mix of winter designs and beautiful patterns.
As always Pam teamed the papers with a gorgeous range of embellishments from Prima flowers to Pink Paislee mistables..

I love adding stitching to my pages at the moment and on this page I added loads! I drew a guide line in pencil where I wanted to stitch my square and then used the straight and zig zag stitch to create a border for my central design.

I wanted to add some more interest to the brown patterned paper behind the photo so simply stitched a spiral onto the section that was going to show behind the photo.

The kit includes a gorgeous chipboard circle, it made a perfect frame for my photo after I had sponged it with some acrylic paint.

We don't get many snowy days down here in Dorset so my photos of really wintery days are few and far between, however I did have a few photos from last December when we had a cold snap and this kit was perfect to go with them.

I sponged white acrylic paint onto the ply wood doiley and then embossed it with white zing embossing powders.

My final project with the Main kit this month was this little card.....

Gorgeous pages as usual, like the stitching may have to pinch that one, love sewing on my pages too.

Another stunning kit, would of liked that one too but not many wintery days here.

Good to see you had a lovely Christmas, and how lovely to see the girls open their stockings on your bed - this year, aged 29, is the first year that I didn't open my stocking on my mums bed!
