Play along and make a layout with the Hey Christmas Cupcake Quirky Kit!

If you have a Hey Christmas Cupcake Quirky Kit at home ready to use, why not make a start with it and create a quick simple layout like this one:

You can watch me make my layout on the video bellow. You can scrap along to the video or just watch it and then make a way better layout than mine! lol
Most of the video is in real time, (I edited out the tedious parts of me trying to get the double sided tape backing off!) so you might want to grab a cup of tea/coffee/hot chocolate etc before pressing play, it's about 14 minutes long.

If you'd like to play along in real time and make the layout you'll need to grab these things from the kit:
1 piece of Bazzill cardstock, (I used the swiss dots piece)
1 piece of patterned paper from the kit, (I used Lily Bee City Sidewalks)
The Studio Calico wood veneer stars and the backing card from the pack
The Pink Paislee tape
The Lily Bee stickers
The Pink Paislee Tinsel Ribbon
The crochet trim
The Mister Huey Color Mist
One of the Elle's Studio Tags
The Sassafras alphabet stickers
3 long pieces of kraft cardstock leftovers

I've also used an alphabet stamp, small heart stamp and a grey ink pad from my stash. The photo is a 5x7 inch one although you can use a smaller one or use two smaller photos together. You'll need double sided tape for sticking, a trimmer and a pair of scissors. You can get the Hey Christmas Cupcake Quirky Kit from the Crafty Templates store right here,

OK here we go, apologies for my mumbling my way through but hopefully you can make sense of what I'm doing from the pictures :)

Here's my finished layout. I added a couple of extra personal touches, some machine stitching to the flag stickers and some journalling along the side. Really simple and quick layout but still enjoyable. You can add more detail to your page as you choose. One thing I found using the mist is that it dries to a chalky finish so I fixed it with hair spray so it wouldn't rub off, just like you would fix a chalk ink or chalks. I think it must have lots of pigment in it to make it solid white. :)

If you've had a go at playing along with the video and making a layout post a link to it in the comments bellow I'd love to have a peek! Maybe you can set yourself a challenge of picking out the same items from the kit and creating something totally different? Go on delve into the kit, don't leave it sitting in its box!
