Kit 2 for February

We are really excited to have this amazing kit as our second one for February, its the brand spanking new 'High Tea' line from Delish Designs - isn't it gorgeous?? We are one of the very first to take delivery of this line, it landed on Monday, we had it on Tuesday and the kit was ready Wednesday - now thats new!! The soft peaches, pinks, creams and blues of this line remind us of soft fondant fancies and cute cupcakes so why not get the kettle on and join us for a spot of high tea!

We've included instructions to make awesome burnt flowers, a cool technique that was taught recently at one of our crops by Claire and one we've been itching to include with a kit. Its not as scary as it sounds, in fact its so quick and easy with no accurate cutting required as you gently singe away the edges of the fabric to create dimensional flowers. Add some beads in the centre or a brad/button and you are all set.

The kit includes cardstock, 4 double sided heavyweight High Tea patterned papers including journaling cards, a whole pack of High Tea pearls and crystals and a pack of fabric swatches. You'll need three or so photos, the sample uses non standard sizes of 4.75" x 7.5", 4.25" x 5.75" and 4.5" x 5.25" all portrait but you could easily use larger or smaller photos and so would correspondingly need less or more. You'll need a soft brown and a peach inkpad (the sample used Colorbox creamy brown and peach pastel), some 3d foam pads, a scrap of lace (about 18" or so) and something for the centres of your flowers.

We hope you like what we have for you this month, we have even more gorgeousness coming very soon so watch this space!
