Hello! I hope you had a lovely weekend. As promised, I wanted to share with you a few peeks at the Spring Beauties kits. This kit has more elements to it than any other kit I have ever put together. They're all finished now, after a slight delay while waiting on one last element to arrive, and are shipping out!
A while ago I found these great paper pocket portfolios that were a cast off from some business, and I scooped a bunch up thinking they would be great to hold some kits. So, I covered up the business info with some pretty wallpaper and a sweet little label. (the label image is courtesy of The Graphics Fairy I altered it and added the script) Inside is all of the materials needed (and so much more!) to put together their journals.
Here's a few of the pretty stacks of materials as I was putting together the kits.
I used half a package of cardstock printing the images! (and of course there is also vintage ephemera in the kits as well)
After I filled all of the orders, I had enough materials to put one last kit together and it's available here.
Thanks to all of those that purchased this kit. You know, it's hard putting yourself out there sometimes..When I add regular retail items to the shop, sometimes they don't do that well and I just have to learn from that. But when you add something that you design, i'ts so personal. You have to hope that other people will like it enough to want to make one of their own and to actually purchase a kit. So, it always means so much when you do like it, and you want to make one too, and I thank you for that.
Years ago, when I first started making kits, one of my customers said to me that she loved that I put the kits together because she works full time, is a full time Mom, and simply doesn't have the time to source all of the materials herself. She said she loved that everything was right there for her, and it made being creative easier for her. I loved that, and have always tried to keep that in mind as I put together my kits.
While I've been working on these kits, I have had a lot of ideas and am really going to concentrate on offering more and more kits in my shop. Both inspiration kits as well as project based kits like this one. I'm also thinking of adding some of my projects to the shop as a tutorial. (for those of you that already have more materials than you could ever want need! lol) Even some of my older projects..I may revisit those and add the tutorials to the shop. Is that something you would be interested in from me? I'd love to know if you do.
Anyway, I've rambled and I have a million things that I should be working on. :)
PS, If you love that floral wallpaper and the pearl lace frames, they'll be headed to the shop soon.
