Total Papercrafts kit 1 for February

This year we decided not to go with a Valentine kit, there are only so many schmaltzy layouts that some people can tolerate so we have listened to our customers who prefer more 'everyday' kits that are a bit more flexible.  Our first kit for February is a single page layout in muted almost retro colours.  All of the papers in the kit are double sided and so there is so much scope for playing with pattern and colours.  One of the papers has a strong 'date' print and we decided to use that as our theme for the sample page making it perfect for birthday photos.  You could go with the theme and use pictures of anniversarys, birthdays, retirement or any other significant date.  You could also use vintage photos as the dates on the paper go back to 1905!!

The sample uses two portrait photos - one 6" x 4" and a 3" x 4" but you could opt for just one photo if thats all that you have.  You will need a black inkpad and you might want to opt for a narrow border punch (the sample used the EK Success postage stamp punch).  Apart from 3d foam pads and double sided tape plus a few crystals from one of the January kits, thats all you will need to add as everything else is included in the kit.

The kit contains; cardstock, 4 sheets of double sided patterned paper, pack of chipboard alphabet, mini coin envelope, ribbon, braid and a paper template.

We added a touch of black Stickles glitter glue to the chipboard alphabet letters for a bit of extra bling but you might also want to make these glossy with some Glossy Accents - we have some teeny bottles in stock for only £1.99, you can message us to add a bottle to your kit if you want one.
