The latest kit I've completed happens to be the one I have had the longest and not got round to using. Why did I wait so long? I love it and it was fairly easy to complete with a few additional supplies like inks and the fabulous stamp set.
Here are my finished pages, month by month

Just look at the beautiful shaker cards you can make for Christmas this year. The kit makes 18 cards, six each of three different designs and they are absolutely lush. You can buy the kit from the 1st September.
Here they are:-

Instead of making tags I made cards!
I began by stamping the backgrounds with stamps from the 'Stamp a bag' stamp set in corresponding colours to match the tags. Then I utilised the tags , doilies, paper clips, linen thread and labels to decorate the cards. Sentiments were stamped from the Hostess only stamp set called 'Silhouettes and Scripts'. The flowers were punched from the flowered tags before the labels were applied and pearls added to finish them off.

I'm still enjoying my holiday in the Corswolds; exploring the area by day and relaxing and doing some crafting by night with a view of the River Windrush as I cut and stick!
As I mentioned on Monday I have brought kits with me to save bringing lots of stash. Today I have completed the pretty Cottage Garden kit. It is quite twee and definitely floral but I have grown to like it- afterall I won't be sending any of them to myself. It took me about two hours to complete fifteen cards; five each of three designs.

2. Choise sentiments you know you will use rather than those suggested. Mix it up.
3. Test out the stamps on scrap paper first
4. Use a stamping May for a cleaner stamped image
5. The ink spots work best if you apply the ink to the stamp instead of the other way round
6. The acrylic block provided is ok but for the very small stamps be careful not to wobble!
7. If you make a mistake like I did don't worry, leave it until the end and use the spare embellishments to hide it as I did here
This is how it should have looked but I made a mess stamping the hello so did this to disguise it
Who would have guessed?

Although we went in the car I didn't want to take loads of stuff so decided to pack a few kits to do. The first one was perfect as it literally included everything I needed except for adhesive. It's the Watercolor Wishes Card kit.
Here is the finished kit- it took me a couple of hours to complete but the end result of twenty pretty, unique cards.
