January Scrappy Chics Reveal

Today is my first reveal for Scrappy Chics.  
I have to say that I love the papers from the January Main Kit
and of course, the papers from the Add-On Kit are so fun!  

Oh my, so blue! The blues in the Authentique papers in the SC Main Kit were the perfect compliment to this picture I took of my grandson.  

We Love Boston!  I have had these pictures just waiting for the perfect combination of papers.  The SC January Add-On Kit it is all Picadilly by Basic Grey. I used two pieces of cardstock from the main kit as the base and then went to town with all the fun BG papers.  

The create the hearts in the title all I did was punch out two hearts, score the top one down the middle, staple the two along the score line, and then fold the paper to give it dimension.  This is one of my favorite little touches to cards & layouts.  

I popped the cardstock sticker tree & butterfly & flowers with some Scrapdots by Helmar to give the layout a bit of dimesion.  

"Sister" is just chocked full of Glitz Design paper from the SC Main Kit.  I hadn't seen these papers IRL before.  Just let me tell you, they are pretty! 

I made the lace flowers from the lace in the SC Add-On Kit.  Spritzed it with a little mist first. Then I ran a simple stitch (by hand) down the side of the lace & pulled the thread to gather the lace in a circular shape. 

Kass helped me chose the sister quotes for this layout.  Believe me, she nixed any that were too sentimental.  Here is a list of what I used:

"A sister is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost" 
~Marion Garrety

"When sisters stand shoulder to shoulder, who stands a chance against us?"
~ Pam Brown

"When Mom and Dad don't understand, a sister always will"
Author Unknown

"Sister to Sister we will always be, a couple of nuts off the family tree."
~Author Unkown 

I already have Scrappy Chics' February Kit in my hands. It is just awesome!
