September Kit now in stock plus Workshop Dates available

We've just finished packing up the new September Kit and it is lush!! This month we've used the gorgeous Autumn Collection from Daisy D's Paper. The possibilities are endless with this kit as the colours are so versatile. Back to School layouts, Autumn layouts, Heritage or Wedding layouts will all look fantastic with these beautiful detailed papers and accessories.

Everything in the kit co-ordinates and this is what's in it:

  • 2 Sheets of Bazzill Cardstock - White and Lily Pad
  • 7 Sheets of Daisy D's Patterned Paper
  • 1 Pack of Cardstock Die-Cuts
  • 1 Pack of Rub-on Transfer
  • 3 Yards of Assorted co-ordinating ribbon.
  • 36 assorted co-ordinating buttons.
I used the kit to make this layout for last weeks ScrapWest "Back to School" challenge and I have to say it's one of my favourites. I've even included an instruction sheet in the kit to show you how to do it.

The whole lot including postage costs €25.00 and you can buy it by clicking here.
