Total Papercrafts kit 1 for September

Our first kit for September uses brand new papers and embellishments from Authentique and we LOVE them!! The gorgeously thick papers are double sided but the double sided action doesn't stop there - the title is too and so are the strips. Thats loads of options from this fab kit!
The sample design includes lots of techniques and you can choose to include some or all of them as suits your own personal scrapbooking style. Our featured technique is creating paper beads which is super easy and incredibly effective - plus its a low cost way to create co-ordinating embellishments for all papercrafting projects.
The kit includes: cardstock, 3 double sided patterned papers, a pack of Noteables, a pack of Headlines, a pack of Petite Type adhesive letters, wire and lace.
To create the sample page you'll also need pink and yellow inkpads (we used Distress Inks in Scattered Straw and Tattered Rose), a bone folder for scoring, decorative border punch, brads or crystals for flower centres and a sheet of plain white A4 paper.
The sample used three 6"x4" portrait photos - the title options are 'You make life Blissful' or 'Always Smiling'. The edges were distressed with cream paint, you could choose to do this or sand the edges to define them. The warm yellows and creams of the kit are lifted with a little kick of hot pink and will match with all sorts of different photos, you'll be surprised!
