Something else that is WONDERFUL, the kits that are in the Occasions catalog (and the ones in the regular catalog). They include almost everything you need.....You will need your favorite adhesive, inks and stamps of your choice. Some kits coordinate with different stamp sets, while other kits in the regular catalog even have stamps and ink included and all of them included card stock, embellishments, punch out shapes, some adhesive d-back card stock, ribbons, yarns, clips, dimensionals....envelopes (for the card kits). These kits all have directions on how to complete the projects along with photos of finished projects, how cool is that????
I have purchased a few kits, and started on the Hello Life kit yesterday. This is a metal frame that you can hang your pictures and inspirations on, similar to a bulletin board. The frame is included!!!! I decided to change the colors of the kit, to include colors of the Baltimore Orioles and the Ravens sports teams which I love....Everything else is included for $25. It took more time to print off the pictures than it did to complete the project once I started. AND I have tons of items leftover. I will incorporate those items into other projects and cards...SO when I mention in a later blog post that the items used the make a card or project were from the Hello Life kit, you'll know it was leftovers. I'll keep a total of how many projects/cards I complete with these extras and when I have a final count, I will link it back to this post.
Here is my "finished" project, it is going to hang above my desk and get updated with new pictures often. So what do you think? Leave me a comment below and I will draw a winner from the comments for some Blog Candy of an extra stamp set from the Occasions catalog.
