Total Papercrafts kit 1 for April

Kit 1 for April uses the brand spanking new 'Magpie' range from Jenni Bowlin which includes paper with the hottest trend in papercrafting - chevrons! Graphic designs aren't our usual style so it was a nice challenge to try to incorporate these designs into our designs and we love the end result.  The papers and stickers in the kit include lots of small images which cried out to be used on a 'bits & pieces' themed layout.  The sticker sheet includes flash cards, cardstock buttons, index tabs and oodles of alphabet stickers.  If you're not keen on the chevron pattern then just flip the paper over to reveal a pretty soft green paper with small red flower print, its such a versatile kit in that respect.

We used two 6" x 4" landscape photos which featured colours from the papers - you have red, soft blue and green on a cream base so lots to choose from. 

The kit includes; cardstock, 3 double sided patterned papers, a sheet of Magpie stickers, a pack of roses, gold ribbon, paper templates, decorative jouranling blocks and a large paper doily.

You will need; beige and red inkpads (sample used Distress Ink in Antique Linen and Festive Berries), large decorative border punch, shape punches (butterfly and flowers).

Grab a couple of photos and lets have fun creating some 'bits & pieces'!!
