Fear not! Even though this kit is now sold out, there are still links to the individual items that were sold as a kit on this page. (Plus lots of eye candy from the Design Team!)
May is here and it's time to announce the new monthly theme and kit: Springtime in Paris!
Oui, oui, it is Springtime mes petits choux! Can you think of a more beautiful place other than Paris in the Springtime? To get your Muse in the mood there are 2 stunning sheets of scrapbook paper in the kit from the Glamour & Grunge Collection: The Old World and Charmed Moments. (And there's also a third paper from this collection, plus some related embellishments in the blog post annnouncing this kit.)
Also included is the Jolie Red Chrysanthemum Scrapbook Paper to add a big pop of color to your creations! (Ditto on more related Jolie papers available.)
Speaking of beautiful, the Springtime in Paris Kit includes 3 collage sheets:
First is the New French Floral Overlays, with a big bunch of gorgeous French icons and vintage flourishy text... all collaged together to form a background or overlay.
Here's an idea! Run the cardstock version of the French Floral Overlays sheet through your die-cutting machine for instant tags or use the Movers & Shakers Base Die - Matchbox!
Or you can also do what Design Team Member Rhea Freitag did: use the collage sheet as a transparency and lay it over the New Jolie Gold Floral Scrapbook Paper. Isn't the pattern of the paper showing through the the print of the transparency fabulous? Note: the version of this collage sheet in the kit is on transparency.
The second collage sheet in the kit is the New La Mode - Papillon. This is a lovely, layered collage of a collage sheet. And under all those colorful images is the background from the French Floral Overlays Collage Sheet (but in sepia on this sheet). Also includes some faux Parisian postage stamps with bees, butterflies and roses.
The third collage sheet in the kit is Vintage French Ads, with beautiful calligraphy and luscious images!
To round out your kit there is also a luscious set of lace and trims... including 2 New lace trims that Rhea used in a clever way: Rhea ran the 3/8 Inch Ivory Looped Lace and the 7/8 Inch Fancy Fan Ivory Lace throught the New and On Sale! Create-A-Sticker Machine! Looks pretty, doesn't it? Who wants to bother with trying not to get glue in all the wrong places on the back of lace when you can just run it through the machine!
While I'm explaining what's in the kit, most everything in this month's kit is also available to buy separately (until sold out). See the "We Also Recommend" section, below, for links/pics of all the paper items in the kit that are sold separately. (There were so many, I've made a separate list of the trims that are available to buy separately.)
If you're reading this on May 4th, scoot over to the blog and see what's in today's Giveaway that includes this kit!
Hey, there are extra goodies that would be fun trims for this kit (and more related papers from the Jolie and Glamour & Grunge Collections, and a bunch of French embellishments, so regardless of entering the Giveaway, I'd recommended checking out the blog post.
