Summer's End Mini Kit ~ On Sale Now!!

The first of our mini kits is now on sale!!

***  Grab yours here!  ***

The kit is full of gorgeous papers and embellishments from the Fancy Pants Summer's End collection and I've matched it with some little blue buttons and flowers. The kit is available with a pack of Thickers letters for £11.50 or if you really want to keep it even more affordable choose the kit without Thickers for just £6.95!! Bargain!!

So, inspired by this layout by DT member Louise (who in turn took her inspiration from this layout by Tessa!) I came up with a page using the kit.

Sorry about that awful reflection on the photo .... there is virtually no decent daylight here these days! I will get a better photo and upload it!

I left plenty of white space on this page and clusters of embellishments!. All the edges have been inked with a brushed corduroy distress ink pad . The only extra bits I added that are not in the kit are the little number stickers (for the year) and the blue gems.

The kit will contain a selection of embellishments, buttons and flowers but actual designs, sizes and colours may vary slightly from thoise shown here!

If you create a layout inspired by Louise or Tessa's use of white space or made with the kit please do leave a comment on this post with a link!

Mini Kit Sneaks!!

As you may recall a couple of weeks ago we launched our monthly kits and the first kit sold out within a couple of days of it's release.

The response has been fantastic ....
"affordable kits with patterned papers and embellishments already co ordinated for me, with no tie in to a subscription" 

.... "so I can just sit down and make my layouts without worrying about finding co-ordinating embellishments!"

So, with these comments in mind we have put together not one, but two mini kits, the first of which goes on sale early next week!!

So do you want a sneak of what is in the first mini kit??

The kit contains 5 patterned papers (12" x 12"), a sticker sheet, a selection of matching embellishments (designs may vary from those shown) which are a lovely heavyweight paper, a selection of flowers and buttons (shades of blue and sizes may vary to those shown) and is available with or without a pack of Thickers letters in chestnut.

Mini Kit 1 without Thickers ... £6.95
Mini Kit 1 with Thickers ... £11.50

And a little peak at a sample layout made with the kit!

Mini Kit 1 goes on sale early next week and is limited in numbers!!

Echo Park Cards

Remember the layouts on this post by Design Team member Louise .... the other day she sent me some pics of some cards she made with the scraps left over from the November Kit so I thought I would share them with you.

This card was made for a male 15th birthday!
The colours of the Echo Park Times and Seasons Papers is perfect for male cards and layouts.

Using the car from the elements sticker sheet Louise has made this fab card for a friend who has recently passed his driving test.

I've been adding a few new products to the shop this week including some American Crafts D Ring albums, Jenni Bowlin paint dabbers and MME Lost and Found Two. See all the new products here!

Tim Holtz Distress Ink pads have also been restocked here!!

I'll be back soon to show you some sneak peeks of some page kits I'm putting together!

Thanks for stopping by!

A Trip Back Home Layout

This is going to be a quick post as I'm getting boxes packed up ready for the Open Day tomorrow! A delivery of new stock landed today as well so it's been busy, busy here!!

It is very rare that I get a photo of my hubby - he is a little camera shy to say the least and any photos I do get are usually with H in the shot too! I love this one taken whilst on a trip to visit family!

The main supplies are Echo Park with some Thickers letters, grosgrain ribbon and gems to finish.

Although a fairly simple, graphic design there is lots of texture with the felt letters, glitter chipboard letters, ribbon, gems and some of the stickers are layered up to give some dimension.

This is the page the class at the Open Day will be based on but you will be able to change the colours and papers to suit your photographs if you wish.

Have a fab evening!
