Maya Road Sparkle & Shine Kit

I recently cancelled my long time monthly kit subscription and I've been looking around for new kits to try that focus mainly on embellishments. I have plenty of stamps and papers. I found the Maya Road Sparkle & Shine holiday kit and fell in love. I ended up ordering the matching paper pad from Fancy Pants which came today and I was inspired to make these three items tonight. I can't wait to find more time to make more things with all the cool stuff in the kit. It's really filled with tons of awesome crafty goodness for a great price. Here is a link if you want to see what comes in the kit.

First I made this card. I just LOVE that red flower I have Maya Road lace tape in several colors, but this green is perfect for Christmas Cards.

For my second card I used some more of the pretty patterned papers and the green seam binding. The kit comes with this exclusive sentiment which I love. I just put it over circles I made from other paper in the collection.

Than, I altered the paper mache box that the kit came it. I added the some fun papers with some deer on the top added some glitter tape to the box to edges. On the side of the lid I put the green lace tape. I painted the bottom of the box to match the patterned paper.

Then I made two card. The first one used

  2. Did you ever think you would say a line like 'I have plenty of stamps and papers'? I know I used to 'need' everything and now I'm so super selective it's maybe gone too far lol. More great inspiration and good luck finding the right kit.

  3. You are going to be ready for Christmas in no time. I love that Christmas gift box you made by repurposing the kit's box. Blessings!

  4. Love the colors and poinsettia on the first card! Beautiful! The warm tones and patterns on the second are fantastic! The altered paper mache box is awesome! I always love new ways to present gifts or use for storage!
