Total Papercrafts kit 1 for August

Here we go with the sample design for our kit 1 for August using Ruby Rock-It products from the 'Keepsake' line.  I think these papers are fabulous quality, they are really thick and have different designs on each side so you get loads of options to play with.  The colours are one of my favourite combinations - cream, duck egg blue and brown, such a soft and easy to use palette that works with so many different types of photos.

I opted for non-standard sized photos - 3.5" squares cut from 6" x 4" prints.  I think this is a good option when you have prints that would work better if cropped down slightly.  You can start with portrait or landscape prints which is also great.  If you have photos that you would rather not crop then I think you could make this design work with one portrait and two landscape photos. If you are going to use the smaller square photos you will need four prints.

The kit contains; cardstock, 4 double sided patterned papers, a diecut journaling pad, pack of cardstock stickers, length of string.

To create the sample design you will also need scraps of narrow ribbon, a few cream flowers (optional), small brads, brown inkpad, flower punch (optional), liquid pearls or adhesive gems/pearls.

For those attending the Total Papercrafts cubs I will have the background stamp I used on the sample available for you to use.
