Total Papercrafts kit 1 for January

I gave you a sneaky peek of the kit papers for this kit the other day and I have loved designing with these! The finished sample design uses a single 6x4 landscape photo with a wintry theme. You could fit two photos on here with a bit of jiggling around. The papers in the kit are double sided with fab designs on each side and as you can see they are all glittery. We chose three of the gorgeously glittered papers - this glitter is stuck on firmly so no need to worry about it ending up in the bottom of your page protector! I did notice that the adhesive they have used has a really strong smell but I left my page out for a few days and it seems to have gone.

The kit contains; cardstock, 3 sheets of double sided glittered paper, ribbon, paper roses, pack of paper flowers, pack of pearl beads, floral wire, paper leaves.

You'll also need a brown and a blue inkpad (the sample used Distress Inks in Vintage Photo and Weathered Wood), a decorative corner punch and a decorative border punch - I used the Martha Stewart Iron Fence corner punch and one of the wide punched strip punches. If you have some silver or pearl shimmer spray you might want to pop that in your craft bag and I also added some touches of Stickles in Diamond. The title was created with alphabets left over from some if our previous kits, so go through your stash of remaining alphas and use them up! For those of you attending club I will have the punches I used available for you to use.

I have signed up for Focus52 over at twoscoopz and committed to complete something creative each week in 2012.  This layout is also my Focus52 project for this week when the prompt is 'new'.  I thought that this would be a perfect layout for this week as it uses a new paper line, was completed in the first week of the new year and includes a new technique where we create snowflakes using corner punches.  Thats plenty of 'new' for me!! If you'd like to join in the fun, you can sign up for free at - you can take a photo a week, create a layout, make a card, the choice is yours!!
