Total Papercrafts kit 2 for June

Check out this amazing page designed by Claire using our kit 2 for June!!  She has the most amazing photos and these pics of the coronation street party and VE day are absolutely incredible but even better is how she combined them with the kit for this month - its jaw dropping!!

Claire has created layer upon layer of interest on this page, there is a hidden journaling card at the top right and she has inked the Union flag designs in the upper right and lower left corners - its a really cute trick using the kit contents and we'll show you how in the instructions (wink!!).

This sample design uses a 6" x 4" landscape photo and an 8" x 4" landscape panorama - you could use a second 6" x 4" landscape as an alternative.  Claire tells me that she offered up colour photos to her finished page and said that they looked really great as well - so don't think that this is a heritage only page.  If you weren't fortunate enough to get any good photos from your Jubilee celebrations you could always mark the event in your scrapbook using photos available online, just Google it and you'll find masses of great pictures you could print.  This is such a special year we thought that it deserved a special kit to record it but if you really don't want to use this to mark the Jubilee the papers are double sided with small subtle prints on the reverse that you could use for a great masculine page.  Even the bunting has a great argyle print on the reverse! 

The kit includes; cardstock, 3 sheets of double sided patterned paper, a pack of embossed metal stickers, length of 'Made in Britain' ribbon, length of string.

Claire used white chalk ink, red and blue Distress Ink (Fired Brick and Faded Jeans), a stapler and a distressing tool (scissors would work).  She cut the title for her page using a Cricut machine and the cardstock in the kit.
