The gorgeous Yvette Fanciulli has designed some fresh and fun new layout kits for us.

Each one includes a little bit of mixed media so if you’re not a fan or just haven’t tried it before, these are a great introduction to trying a little bit of mixed media on your pages.

They come with instructions and full colour photos so you can create them how they were designed or design your own page with the elements in the kit.  You can always add some bits out of your own stash too.

This is a double page layout kit featuring the beautiful Winter Rose collection from Uniquely Creative.  All the beautiful frames are cut for you from Uniquely Creative’s new Rose Gold cardstock and using new frame dies from Uniquely Creative.

You have to love layout kits that allow you the option to pop lots of pics on the page to tell the whole story.  This layout does just that and it is embellished with beautiful hand coloured floral elements from a Uniquely Creative cut and colour cut apart sheet.  The kit also includes a full pack of the large matt board words from Celebr8 and these are coloured to add lots of fabulous punch to the page.

How fun is this page and there are so many things you can do with these versatile little elements.  We have included a second sheet of paper and additional titles so you can easily turn this into a double page layout if you wish.

The simplicity and vibrancy of this page make any photo pop  when you frame it with the panels provided.  Add the Celebr8 matt board flourishes, title  and butterflies and you will have a beautiful fun layout perfect for any photo.  Change your inking colour to suit your photo or your favourite colour.

We see layouts like this all the time but going to the effort of actually cutting all the circles often puts us off actually doing it.  Well it’s done for you in this kit and all the thinking about what patterns and what colours to put where is also done for you.  That doesn’t mean to say you can’t change it up however you like but it’s a great start to get you motivated.  Again, it features some Celebr8 matt board which gives such a fabulous circle frame with flourished floral effects, it’s just  so much fun!!!
This was meant to be a class Yvette would share with you all last month however given the virus, we had to kit it so you get even more options.  All the die cutting is done for you.  We have included one page of watercolour with texture paste already on it if you want to use that or don’t have paste or there is a blank page of watercolour card you can create your own stencilling on.
Your kit also includes a mini mark making stamp or a voucher so you can pick your own from the shelves in store.

Look how much is in your kit!!!!

I just love a splash of hot pink every now and again and when it’s paired with all these beautiful shades of pink and those gorgeous monstera leaves, it’s just a winning combination.
You even get some extra bits to create a matching card if you like or again you could use these bits to make a matching page if you’d prefer.
We hope you like these kits as much as we do and look forward to seeing your creations.

We will have these on our kit page very soon!!!

Remember we are open today Saturday 23rd May and tomorrow Sunday 24th May 10am – 2pm.

Come on in and say hello.

For so long I have wanted to play with the Cocoa Vanilla studio range, Make a Wish, as I find it so fresh and colourful and today was finally that day.  Inspired by the gorgeous works of Raquel Bowman, Bea Valint and Amanda Baldwin, I’ve created a new double layout kit that will be available in store for only $15.00.  Of course if you can’t make it into store and would like one posted out, we are more than happy to accommodate.   You may even want us to help you shop for a few extra bits to fill the box. 

I’ve also got some more of these gorgeous Christmas card kits I made using Cocoa Vanilla Studio, Tis the Season, which I just love.  These are no ordinary Christmas cards with fabulous little pockets and tags, flaps and flips all over the place.  Hope you like them! Hugs, Sharon
