And this layout of her nephew's baptism is amazing. That is all hand stitching on the background paper! Great job Kim.

I also thought I would post a couple of little tips I have tried...
* when using liquid pearls to get the pearl shape after you place your pearls lightly tap the bottom of the paper.
*have piece of ribbon or lace you want to dye with your mist? Spray your mist in a baggie and then put your lace in. swish and move your lace around until you have the desired effect. Remove the lace and let dry or dry with your heat gun
* take a bounce sheet and rub it on the area you want to emboss before you stamp and it will stop the embossing powder from sticking where it shouldn't be.
* in a multi photo layout if you want to have a focal-point photo. You can make it stand out by....making it bigger, using pop dots, matting it and not the rest, making it black and white and the rest color (or vica versa) or using a fabulous photo effect!

First off, the sugar kit. I am the first to admit that I am not really a fan of the color pink, so doing a really pink sugar kit is hard for me, but I know that there are a lot of people who are fans of pink and every now and then a sugar kit has to have some pink doesn't it? Well, I thought this kit was the perfect compromise because there is some pink but then also a lot of pretty blues and other colors. I definitely don't think it's overly pink, and I'm even excited to use it. This kit uses new Bella Blvd. Lovey Dovey, but I also added in some My Mind's Eye Lush and Lost & Found. Along with some fantastic embellishments from Pink Paislee, American Crafts, LYB, MME and a super cute stamp from Glitz, I think this is a perfect Sugar kit to start off the new year.
Featuring Bella Blvd. Lovey Dovey and MME Lush and Lost and Found
Next up, the Spice kit. This kit features the new Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 line. I LOVE these papers. Add in some super fun and unique embellishments from Canvas Corp. like the canvas and burlap items and the tiny clothespins, some super cute buttons and cool chipboard alpha from Ruby Rock-It and even a bottle of Smooch Spritz in Cherry Ice, and you have one cool and fun kit. This would be a great kit to scrap New Year's stuff.
Finally, I even made a kit add-on this month that can go with both kits. Some of the items are similar to those in the spice kit, but they are all different. The spritz is pink although it looks rather red in the bottle. I am selling this kit for $9.00. It retails for more than that. If you are a subscriber and want the add-on, PM me so that I can reserve you one and add it to your monthly kit payment.
You can pre-order any of these kits here. If you would like to sign up for a membership and be sure you get these fabulous kits each and every month, you can do that here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Sign up this month for a 12-month sugar or spice membership and get any past 2010 kit for free now or sign up for 6 months and get a free January Add-On kit.

In more Scrapdango news, I am running a New Year Subscription Special this month where if you sign up for a 12-month sugar or spice membership in January, you not only get your 13th kit free at the end of the membership as always, but you also get to pick out ANY one of the available past kits (including the Dec. sugar kit--the spice was sold out) for free along with your first kit now. If you want to get both fabulous kits each month and sign up for a 12-month combo membership, you get to choose two past kits for free. If you can't commit to 12 months now but want to do 6 months, I will send you the January add-on kit for free this month. If you would like to sign up, email me (email@example.com) with your choice of sugar, spice or combo membership along with your choice of past kit(s) you would like for free and whether you want to pay monthly by Paypal or credit card. I have some fabulous kits planned for the coming months and with new stuff coming out this January at Winter CHA, there will be even more cool stuff in the kits.
