Kit 2 for January

The snow seems to be playing havoc with everything right now but hopefully it means you are wrapped up nice and snug at home and maybe even getting some scrapbooking done! Our second kit for January is a double page in shades of purple and green with a dash of warm cream thrown in for good measure. We have included a great technique to make shabby chic flowers from acid free tissue paper. These flowers are soft and delicate and can be colour matched to any project you are working on - just choose co-ordinating colours of inks and you are good to go! We are also playing with paper doilies to create gorgeously delicate and lacy effects using inks.

The kit includes cardstock, 4 sheets of patterned papers, 3 A3 sheets of acid free tissue, paper doily and a pack of jewel brads. You'll need to use green and purple inkpads (sample used Peeled Paint and Milled Lavender Distress Ink pads - Colorbox Warm Violet and Olive Pastel also match but are a little darker), a blending sponge, needle and white sewing thread, 3d foam pads, a short length of green ribbon and a paper pricker. The sample used Thickers in green felt for the title but there is ample paper and card left to cut a title and this will also co-ordinate brilliantly. The sample uses two 6" x 4" portrait photos and one 6" x 4" landscape pic but as usual the design will work with a number of different sizes of photos in the same theme.

Hopefully the snow will alleviate sufficiently for clubs to run this month, in the meantime stay safe and warm! Lynda
