February Kits

It's that time again ... Reveal Day! And this month we've got a lot to show you.
We've changed our kit format a bit. Rather than the large kit we've been doing in the past, this month offers two seperate kits. Each is a full kit on it's own, but can be mixed with the other to create that larger size kit that many enjoy. Each side runs $31.50, but if you purchase both, you'll receive a $5.00 discount.

The first side is "Let The Sun Shine" ...
Fresh, bright colours to help snap you out of your winter doldrums. Patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye, October Afternoon, Studio Calico, with one of the new resist papers from Pink Paislee via House of 3. It was the first sheet I played with and am wishing I'd ordered more.
Coordinating buttons from My Mind's Eye, tickets from Pink Paislee, sticker elements from Basic Grey Curio and sparkly Thickers in that gorgeous turquoise ...
Die-cut papers from We R Memory Keepers and KI Memories with a few fun bits from Tim Holtz ...

The second side is "My Shabby Valentine". I'm generally not one to go for a themey type of kit, but still wanted to provide some products that could be used for soft, shabby layouts and cards for the Valentine season ...
We went with gorgeous papers from Basic Grey Curio, another sheet from the Pink Paislee House of 3 and some glittery My Mind's Eye. Muted browns, pinks and greens are the predominent colours here with lots of sparkle in the form of Making Memories trim, Ranger Rock Candy Distress Stickles, Prima flowers, Kaisercraft rhinestones and a brown glittered alpha.
Glitz Paper Layers and Whatnots ...
And a few Maya Road crystal trinket pins complete this lovely shabby collection ...

Lesley was good enough to video herself opening her package this month. So fun. I think you get a better feel for the kit contents when you see her leafing through them as opposed to my flat photos. I'm always so disappointed with the way the kits looked when they're photographed. You miss all of the sparkle and texture that, for me, make the kits.
Be sure to visit the Gallery to see what Lesley and Heather have done with the kits.
Heather has had a lot on her plate this past while and chose to use only "Let The Sun Shine" and a few extras for her projects. I had a feeling that she would love this one with the bright, vibrant colours and know that so many of you will be inspired with what she came up with. She used ipod photos and sweet little Ruby's artwork on her pages ... both great ways to try something a little different than you're used to doing.
Lesley uses both sides, but as I predicted, she gravitated towards "My Shabby Valentine". It is so her style. I was blown away with what she's created. That girl is crazy talented. She has also worked up a tutorial that we'll post later on in the month using the House of 3 paper, Shimmerz and inks.
Have a look and if you like what you see, visit the website to order.

I'll be adding some extras to the website later on today ... more alphabets and coordinating embellishments.
Also to come sometime today ... a new contest!
