First up in my layout for this months Sketch

To make this layout I used the Kaisercraft Sliver Bells Collection papers in Joy and Frosty plus the coordinating sticker sheet. For my background I used the Kaisercraft Festive Quarters stencil from the Mediums add on kit, then I added colour with the Pearl Ex mica powder in sliver (also from the medium add on kit) plus some grey sprays from my stash. I took the Bo Bunny laser cut snowflake chipboard pieces and primed them with white gesso, then I added some gel medium to stick on some white glitter. For my embellishing I used the Plastic snowflake, Kaisercraft rhinestones in Silver and the  Petaloo Vintage Velvet Poinsettia in White from the main Kit. From the embellishment add on kit I used the Prima Sliver leaves, Blue Fern Winter Page Dangles chipboard, Prima Trim, and  Grey lace. I added a few flowers from my stash as well.

Here is this months amazing sketch

For my second layout I've used a photo of my adorable baby Nephew. 

To make this I started by spraying on some Turquoise and Sliver mists from my stash, I used the flourish section on the Kaisercraft Festive Quarters Stencil (which came in the mediums add on kit) with texture paste. The I used the Bauble section of the same stencil with a Grey Gelato, then I added some random stamping on top. I used the Kaisercraft Silver Bells Paper in Carol and Wonderland, plus the coordinating sticker sheet and tag. To colour my chipboard title I used the Jacquard Lumiere 3D paint in Turquoise from the main kit. To embellish I used the Petaloo Vintage Velvet Peonies in Teal, The Petaloo Vintage Velvet Minis in White and the Kaisercraft mini roses from the Flower add on kit. The Prima Sliver leaves are from the embellishment add on kit and I added lots of the amazing bling that came all though the kits.

An finally today I have the Christmas decoration that came in the Project add on kit.

I started of by covering the snowflake from the Project add on kit with gesso before I added some white crackle paste. Next I added the Pearl Ex mica powder in Rose Gold (which came in the Mediums add on Kit) and water into the spray bottle that came in the same kit. I sprayed the mist onto the snowflake. And finally I gave the whole thing a coat of the Folk Art Extreme Glitter Paint in sliver - this is such pretty paint!!!! To embellish I used the sliver bells and crystal drops from the Project add on kit. I also used the Sliver berry spray from the embellishment add on kit along with some white and grey flowers from my stash. (sorry the photos aren't the best this was harder to photograph that I imagined)
