Frosty Winter gift box by Kasia

Hi All,

I hope you are getting ready for Christmas…. well you should… 1st of December is tomorrow and Christmas presents wrapping madness will start soon.

Today I have a gift box for you for those super special presents.

I used Frosty winter kit papers and embellishments…

So let me show you how I did it…

I had 6’x6′ flat paper box with an aperture …

I used the snowflake stencil from the kit to create the snowflake design on the acetate. I used Imagination Crafts sparkle medium – spearmint…

I used the papers from the kit to decorate the box outside and inside. I used the lace and Washi tape.

I gather few embellishments and stated my composition in one corner… I used some flowers from the kit as well as one of my handmade foamiran poinsettias.

I added some paper die cuts and sentiment to go at the opposite flower corner.

I also attached the tag from the kit

And I think it will make a great gift box for someone special.

Hope you enjoyed it…

See you soon with some more frosty projects…

Keep warm

Wintery Art Journal Pages – Grace

Hello! For my final project with this kit I decided to put my December album aside for a week and do some wintery art journal pages.


I used the acrylic paint from the kit, as well as some of my favourite acrylics from my stash to paint the background after I’d done (and dried!) some stencilling with modelling paste.


Over the top of that I added more stencilling with some embellishment mousse, and some stamping with Kaisercraft stamps.

Then I added the HUGE sticker from the Kaisercraft sticker sheet in the kit. I cut it in hal to have it on both pages. I also layered on some white tissue-material (I’m not sure of the proper name), and more stickers from the Kaisercraft sheet.


I also added some more of those fabulous Tim Holtz Christmas Clippings stickers.


Once all those pieces were down I took the silver paint again and dry brushed some around all those elements to add lots of depth to my spread.

At this point I thought I was finished, but I wasn’t entirely happy. So I typed up a wintery quote on my computer in a typewriter font, then printed it off, cut it into strips, and stuck those onto the page too.


I finished the spread with white splatters and silver gems.

To see the full process you can watch the accompanying video here:

I still have lots of this kit left, so I’ll be using it in my December memory keeping project throughout next month. There should (hopefully!) be weekly videos on that, so keep an eye out on my channel if you’d like to see more of this kit in use.

Prepping December Album Pages – Grace

Hi all! This week I’m continuing to prep for my December Album. Last week I made the album cover, and this week I’m getting some pages and pockets ready. December is such a busy month for all of us, so adding documenting on top of that can be quite intimidating. Which is why I’m getting some pages ready in advance, and get a bit of a head start on everything.


To see what I did, you can watch the video here:


I’ve done so many things, it’s best if you watch the video to see it all! But some highlights are:

I used the cardstock from the kit to create pockets.


I’ve used Distress Oxides and the packaging technique to create some ‘base’ pages for layouts.


I’ve use various mediums to paint or colour the little pages from the kit’s original album which I’m going to use for journaling throughout the month.


And I used the kit’s beautiful snowflake stencil to do some stencilling on acetate behind my title page.


I feel a little more relaxed about documenting December now that I have a lot of things prepared for it. So I hope you’ll give it a go too! Thanks so much for reading.

December Album Cover with Frosty Winter

Hello all! I’m back this week with my first post and video working on my December album.


As cute as the kit’s album is, I wanted a bigger space for my December documenting; so I’ve used that album as the foundation to make a bigger one.

My accompanying video will explain everything! So follow the link to watch it:

I cut two pieces of chipboard to 8×10″, and adhered the front cover of the small album on top to make a centerpiece for the front cover. Added extra holes with a WRMK Crop-O-Dile, and set blue and teal eyelets in place; and then the album was ready to decorate it.

The whole process took me about two hours (not including drying time!) and I’m really pleased with the result. All the steps and processes are explained in the video, as well as a detailed product list, so please do watch it if you’d like to see how I created this Frosty Winter Shabby Chic album 🙂

You can also watch this short slideshow to see lots of close ups of the album.

Check back next week when I’ll be prepping the inside of the album ready to fill during December.

‘Perfect’ Frosty Winter Scrapbook Layout – Grace

Hello! How pretty is this month’s ‘Frosty Winter’ kit? If you haven’t already seen what’s in it you can watch my unboxing video here.

I fully intended to start my projects this month by working on the mini album that cam in the kit… however, I had a creative idea in my head I just couldn’t get rid of. Which was to create this scrapbook layout with the stunning woodgrain paper by Reminisce.



I started this layout by embossing some snowflake stamps with white glitter and silver embossing powder. I then added more snowlakes with the Echo Park stencil using a homemade paste – a mix of glitter paste, modelling paste, silver embellishment mousse, and coarse white glitter.



I backed my photo with two layers of the lovely cardstock that comes with the kit, and added some of the silver acrylic paint to the edges with a very dry stipple brush. I liked the effect so much I added more paint around the layout, and later added it to the flowers and other embellishments on the page.


Behind the photo (which was mounted onto two layers of foam to life it up) I put some white tulle, and some small strips of white tulle that has silver gems and stars on. I used Prima Gloss Gel for this, but only added the medium directly behind where the photo would be so the tulle would be ‘loose’ around the photo.


I also used a small snowflake punch to punch out the little snowflakes with some light blue and some silver glitter card, and added these in and around the tulle.

Then I added some embellishments, ephemera, stickers, and clippings stickers.


I added my title, ‘Perfect’, to the top of the photo (the alphas I used are similar to those that come in this month’s Paper Kit). And then I finished with lots of little star gems all around the layout for some added sparkle!


I also have a process video you can watch here:

I loved making this layout. The colours are so gorgeous and the whole thing it so light and pretty.

…but I promise I’ll try not to get distracted next week and do my album!

Christmas book cover by Kasia

Hello November and hello everybody,

Hope you are loving the November/December kit and looking forward the Christmas as much as me…

I have decorated the book from the kit…. have a look what I did…

Remove the ring and lay two book panels flat. Cover with a layer of white gesso and use the snowflakes stencil and texture paste to add some texture to the background

decorate the cover with chipboard elements from the kit. I also use the sparkly ribbon and washitape . But I covered it all up later hence a bit pointless lol.

When elements are dried , cover them with another layer of white gesso

I used mixed media spray from Imagination Crafts to add colour.


When dried, I splay Imagination Crafts shake and gilt silver spray adding amazing sparkle to my project

I used few strips of washitape from a kit on both panels.

And …

start building your composition…I used flowers , die cuts, cheesecloth….

add as many an you think you need…

When I was happy I put the book back and it was ready..

Hope you like my take on this month kit… looking forward to do another project soon…

All my crafty love to you…
