Kit 1 for August

For our first kit for August we have used gorgeous summery colours - shame we don't seem to having a Summer this year!! This double page kit includes 4 cardstock, 4 patterned papers, a pack of rub-ons and a pack of white crochet flowers. The dominant colours are blue and white but there is a little of all sorts going on in the patterned papers including hot pink, orange, kraft and green.
I used four 6" x 4" photos, two landscape and two portrait. You will also need some brads for the flower centres, 3d foam pads, and ink pads (the sample uses ColorBox chalk inks in Tangerine, Ice Jade and Azurite). I also added some Prima crystal swirls but you could use black pearls or even just draw on swirls with a black pen. I used Thickers for my title but you can gut one of the pages to release blue card that you could cut letters from to make your title. If you have a scallop edge punch you might want to dig it out for this kit, the sample used the Fiskars 'Threading Water' punch but any small scallop punch will work fine.

Be warned - I did a LOT of cutting out from the patterned paper!!
