Lisa & Lori's Great Stash Bash December Kit

Hello, hello! Happy December 1st! Can you believe that it is December?! My goodness, this year has gone by so quickly!

Today I am sharing my December kit for Lisa and Lori's Great Stash Bash. If you don't know what the Great Stash Bash is - it is a challenge that my good friend Lisa and I do every month. We pull items from our stash based on a "recipe" (which you will see below) in an effort to get our scrappy stash used up!

I am not going to lie, I struggled with what to do for this month's kit! I still want to work on my 2018 Favorite Photos of Ada traveler's notebook and I have a few layouts that I have planned from past kits that I would like to make, and I need to make some Christmas cards and work on my December Daily...what to do! I finally decided that I would pull together a couple of Christmas page kits and keep the other kits out that I would like to work on, as well. Let's get started.

Here is this month's recipe:

Our "recipe" is to pull 10 patterned papers, 5-7 scraps, 3-4 embellishments, and our focus item for December is - stamps.

Here is my first kit:

This kit is made up of the 2019 Fancy Pants collection - Wishmas. I had received this collection in a kit from The ScrapRoom and loved it so much that when I found it either on Peachy Cheap or at Tuesday Morning, I picked up another one! I'm pretty sure that I have another die cut pack around here somewhere, but it wasn't with the papers so I will need to look for it and add it later. There's plenty here for me to work with - as is! I have at least one layout planned and we will see if I can get a card or traveler's notebook spread made from it, too.

Here are the scraps that I have left:

 I am in love with that red and green stripe paper! I could have 20 more sheets of it and be happy!

My second kit is another that I received in a kit from The ScrapRoom last year. It is made up of PinkFresh Studio's - Oh What Fun - collection:

I have one, maybe two, layouts planned with this kit. The stickers and die cuts will work great in my December Daily, too, so I am hoping to get quite a bit of this used up!

Here are the scraps that I have:

Our focus item for December is stamps and I have pulled quite a few of my Christmas stamps from Elle's Studio:

I will keep these in a bin on the side of my desk so I don't forget to use them!

I am anxious to see what I can get used up this month! I know with all that I want to work on this month and with Christmas being just a few weeks away that I might not have a lot of time but having these kits all ready to go will make it quick and easy when I do have time to work on things. 

I will be back in a day or two with an update on my November kit. I am so happy with all that I got done and can't wait to share it with you!

Now, be sure to stop by Lisa's blog to see the fun kit that she has pulled together for this month.

  1. I love your kits! So pretty and I am loving the non-traditional colors these kits offer you! I almost chose that Fancy Pants collection!! I loved it but I don't' have much left so I decided it was to hard to match with all the blues so I went a different direction! So excited to see how you will use your fabulous kit!!

  2. Love your kits! Looking forward to your inspiration. Hope to pull mine soon.
