Technique video for March

This month we are having fun with the set of gorgeous ribbons that come with kit 2 and making sumptuous roses to embellish the page! This is one of those techniques that sounds harder than it really is - just grab your circle punches, double sided tape and some ribbons and you're good to go!

Kit 2 for March

We are staying with the classic theme for kit 2 this month using these gorgeous papers from the 'Sizzling' line by Delish Designs together with a whole pack of stunning ribbons and a whole pack of beautiful ribbon sliders. The papers and ribbons are offset by black cardstock which really punches the page forward while the brown/blue/white colours of the papers co-ordinate with all sorts of different themes of photos.
The kit contains cardstock, 3 doubles sided patterened papers, a pack of three different decorative ribbones, a pack of three filigree ribbon sliders and a paper template.
The sample uses a 7" x 5" landscape photo but you could use a couple of 6" x 4" portraits side by side just as easily - you just wouldn't see as much of the cut-outs at the side. We have added some of the really pretty Woodware pearl clusters and a Thickers script alphabet for the title (but this can easily be cut from the leftover paper). There is also a chipboard circle embellishment from the Scenic Route sets available in the shop but you could add a punched circle with a stamped design on for a low cost alternative.
We adore the ribbon roses that embellish this design - keep an eye out for the YouTube video showing you how to make these!!
