July kit 2

This gorgeously serene single page kit was designed by Tracey for us a while back and as soon as I saw it I was blown away! Tracey is really clever at combining papers and layering products and this is very much in evidence in this stunning page.

The kit contains cardstock, 3 sheets of patterned paper, a pack of Thickers glittery chipboard alphabet, embroidery floss, pearl strand, book paper and a paper template.

You'll need two 6" x 4" photos - Tracey used portrait ones but landscape would work just as well, blue and green inkpads, decorative border punches, a single hole punch, a corner punch and a black journaling pen. The punches aren't essential, you could very easily hand cut the corners and borders or even tear them for a more rugged look. A lot of the flowers that Tracey used were punched out of the paper in the kit but she also added a couple of larger white flowers and some tiny paper roses. You could choose to do the same or add flowers from your stash. We have a delivery of mixed white flowers coming in next week and we had loads of tiny white rosebuds arrive today (so we really need to et cracking and add them to the shop tomorrow!).

I'm sure you'll agree that Tracey has really come up trumps this month and we are sure you'll have no problem finding photos to match the soft blues and greens of this gorgeous kit.
