August kit 1

We start the Summer holidays with a bumper kit that is almost literally bursting at the seams it has so much in it!! We were hard pressed to use a bit of everything in the sample design but we think we just about managed to get a little bit of every one of the 10 sheets of patterned paper onto the double page design. Yes - you did read that right, there are 10 sheets of patterned paper in this one!!!!! Add to that 5 sheets of die-cuts, cardstock and 2 packs of glitter and you have to agree that this kit is HUGE!!!
The sample design uses a 6x4 portrait photo and three 4x4 pics and the fresh colours of the papers makes them ideal for bright, sunny holiday type photos. The circles were created in a variety of sizes - ideal if you have a circle cutter but you could just as easily draw round a number of different sized objects including cups and bowls!! Dig out your border punch again to make it earn its keep and add a few white paper flowers. A black ink pad shabbies down the paper and 3d foam pads add dimension. The sample uses oddments of Thicker alphabet stickers for the title but the kit includes two 12x12 sheets of matching alphabets in a number of different colours so there's no real need to add anything else. The swirls were created using some of the new £1.99 ZVA Creative blue crystals that arrived this week but there is so much glitter in the kit you could create the same effect with dots of adhesive and glitter. A small scrap of narrow ribbon runs from the left edge of the design to the die-cut label holder - we have the ribbon in stock for only 25p a yard if you have to have the exact same one!!
