DT Connie Can Crop: Icing on Top

Dear Scrappers,

This is my last design for Connie Can Crop, a layout that I created using this month's sponsor image gingerbread-lane-digital-stamp:

I used the sketch from last sketchy Saturday

The right side:

The left side:

I added some 3D dots for the gingerbread houses and tags:

This papers are so adorable that don't need much extra glitter:

I used glittery printed cardstock from my My Mind  Eyes, some KI alpha stickers and ephemera, and some rick rack. I'm planning to add the pictures of my children making a ginger bread house with their cousins 4 years ago...

I hope you enjoyed this card and decide to join us at Connie's, there is some time left for this month's challenge:

Dear Scrappers,
This is my post for Paper Wing Productions, The Aviary, I created a quick minialbum in that morning. I was inspired by the Paper Wings Productions: Perfect numbers, clear stamp set.

For this album, I used:

Liquid Glass

Inks: Black, red, and gold: Hero Stamps. 
Glittery snow, DecoArt
Glittery snow, Martha Stewart 

A closer look at my mixed media title:

For this album, I used mostly components of the nesting mixed media kit. I added some fake snow 
to the snowflake and the inked wood shipies 

For the album covers, I used the harder packing material included in this kit. And make the wholes using my Cro-A-dile. I attached some trimmed paper from October afternoon included in the kit, sanded and inked the edges. I cut more paper for the inside pages and added picture mats and  stamped embellishments. The coordinated kits makes this process a breeze. 
Some of the inside pages:

I used this sketch to make my inside pages:
I am also entering the following challenges:

(I chose Christmas, Red & Green & Glitter)
