    Spring Flowers Kit!

    Filed under Art Projects, Collage Sheets, Giveaways, Laura Carson, Newsletters, Sale, Spring Flowers Kit

    So many options in this kit! From vintage ladies with flowers in their hair to FOUR different scrapbook papers (each with their own version of flowers or greenery).

    AND an accordion-fold ticket journal (ATC size) with a mini folder to slip it into!

    Plus 4 pretty (and colorful) acrylic floral embellishments… like I said: a lot of options!

    And check out the lovely sample art that Design Team Member Laura Carson created using this kit (see the wide photo below, and another down in the Giveaway section) — Laura added images from the (new) Lovely Sepia Ladies ATCs and Vintage Sepia Children ATCs collage sheets (with the A Mix of Spring Beauties ATCs one in this kit), AND added butterflies from her new Nature’s Creatures Collage Sheet (note: it’s useful to keep all the embellishments flat so she could fold the booklet).

    More info and photos in Laura’s blog post, and here’s a link to see all her supplies.

    More info about the new kit is on the Spring Flowers Kit page. And remember to scroll down to the Giveaway on this page for a chance to win a kit plus lots of extras! Plus between here and there, a big bunch of pretty coordinating trims!

    Hooray for the Spring Flowers Kit Giveaway

    Before I explain what’s in today’s Giveaway, I’d like to point out the bookmark (made from a manila tag) that’s tucked into the left pocket in the ATC Folder (see photo at right). Beside a cute idea all by itself, the whole folder with the accordion-fold journal (and the bookmark) would be a sweet gift. And pretty quick to make, too!

    Ok… back to this Giveaway: Beside one of the Spring Flowers Kits (that includes ELEVEN items all by itself — including the ticket journal and folder in Laura’s artwork), this Giveaway also includes more things Laura used:

    - Bouquets Collage Sheet
    - Garden Tools Scrapbook PaperNew!
    - Larger Green Leaf Garland
    - Lovely Sepia Ladies ATCs Collage SheetNew!
    - Large Manila Tags
    - Nature’s Creatures Collage SheetNew!
    - Seed Catalog ATCs Collage Sheet
    - Stitched Leaf Ribbon – Moss Green
    - The Language of Flowers Collage Sheet
    - Vintage Sepia Children ATCs Collage SheetNew!
    - White Seam Binding

    AND I’m including one of the new ATC Tote Boxes! I didn’t talk about them yet today (one is shown at right, with an ATC Ticket Journal sitting inside). How cute is that?! A laser-cut kit to make an adorable little tote box, sized for ATCs. When put together it stands just 2-3/4″ tall.

    To enter the Spring Flowers Kit Giveaway drawing all you have to do is leave a comment BELOW on this blog post TODAY or TOMORROW (the deadline is 11:59 pm PST, Monday Night, April 2, 2018).
