This Countdown page kit is so fun. I bought one myself to use with my grandchildren in Ky. when we go there soon. Everything is planned out well and makes it a project you can do in a couple of hours with children or for yourself. We are finding old photos of the kids at Christmas time to put behind the doors, but you could use little notes about Christmas traditions, or a note on each page about where some tiny surprise is hidden to open for that day, etc. It is a lovely kit and for the price of ten dollars, you are getting your money's worth.......the stickers and papers are well done, colorful and just plain great! Hope you enjoy your kit as much as we will enjoy using ours!
The new cardmaking kits from Little Yellow Bicycle are super! Each kit provides everything and more that you need to create eight distinctive cards for the season and this one is no exception. It is a Fifteen dollar kit and you will finish up with eight great cards for the special people in your life. We have them in the school line too, I think. I know we are getting them in several lines from this co., so check it out. Great value and all the instructions are included, of course.
These two photos show a bit from the new tree line (cannot remember the name of it and since it is six o'clock on Sunday morning, I am not about to go look it up!) from Nikki Sivils. She is a relatively new designer to the scrapbooking world and will work in nicely with card makers too. Her choice of color is fun and designs are very whimsical. Her papers work will with those who love to cut out the panels for use in embellishing, and there is a great circular paper with each line. I have seen them used Extremely creatively recently, and have come to Love the circular papers! The other line we have in is the one with the Bees on it......in oranges and blues and is very cute. Come see!
Debbie created this lovely placemat from some of our new fall fabric and everyone has been talking about it. See the napkin ring attached on the side? How clever! We have a variety of these glass plates in leaf shape, amongst others, that are lovely for your fall table, and the little mini pumpkins are such fun for a variety of decorating plans. You will find these up near the front of the store and there are lots more to choose from.
Here's a layout that Sue did to give you some ideas..................
