I consider myself quite blessed to have sixteen feet of space to plan out the fourteen pages for our monthly collections. The whole process takes a few days, and it really gives me the chance to experience the potential of a kit. Get your hands on Hydrangeas and tap that potential!
Once I'm finished getting it all figured out, I try to make sense of all of my notes and sketches. Then I set out to write the instructions.
Here are the pages . . .
|Use a craft knife to cut a slot in the White Print to accommodate the photo mattes.|
|The colorful pieces on these pages will arrive as a white raised print. You get to be the designer!|
|The die cut frames in this collection go a long way to embellish the pages. I love how they all nest together.|
|Cut slots into the printed border on the left side and slide the cutaparts beneath.|
|The Metallic Purple Pearls make swift work of finishing things up with a little flair.|
|The green wired ribbon that comes in the embellishment pack is a beauty!|
(But Deb says it was really a pain to trim and insert into the collection, poor thing.)
|The yellow tulle ties easily into a bow without the intervention|
of a fork or some sort of other piece of bow-making equipment.
Deb liked it, too.
Next up, the fifteen Greetings to Go Cards.
|There are endless possibilities for the fun doilies we added. Paint them, make rosettes, ink them, use 'em as stencils . . .|
|When was the last time you used a postage stamp scissors? See if you can dig one up.|
|I had a lot of fun with a faux stitched card inspired by Marya's awesome blog.|
