June Card Kits

These are the first of hopefully many card kits offered through my Online Store and BLOG.

The first kit is using the Faerie Poppet 3D Decoupage set that I originally used on my Surprise Pop Up Card – only 2 of the original 3D  available. The second kit is a Faerie Poppet 3D kit also.  These decoupage pictures are extremely easy to put together. They are laser cut and just require pushing out to break the few tabs. You can shape the pieces if you wish but I don’t usually bother. They take about 5 minutes  – just add some foam squares, layer up and they are all done!! So simple.

You can view the contents of the kit by watching the video below.

The first two kits will be $12 each.

Check out the photos.

The difference between the two options are the 4th sheet of double sided patterned card stock. Option 1 has My Lady and Option 2 has Prudence. The two patterns are the first piece of patterned cardstock on the left of the picture but at the bottom of the pile. You can get a closer look at these patterns by checking them out below.

You also get a frame choice until either one of the frame colours runs out. Currently I have one sets of the black left and numbers of the cream.

Monthly Scrapbooking Kit – April 2012

I have decided to put together a scrapbooking kit each month using the Fynmark range of products and from time to time other coordinating items.

The Fynmark or sometimes more commonly known by the Brand names of Bella! or Ruby-Rockit are released in coordinating papers and embellishments.

The first kit will be the Ever After Range. Beautiful double sided quality patterned cardstock with lovely embellishments that enhance your projects.

So, what will be in the kit and what will it cost?

The Complete kit

4x Double sided Ever After Papers – Now and Forever, Cherish, Romance and Fairy Tale (Photos below show the reverse side of the papers)

3x Chromatics Coordinating Cardstock with Linen look finish – Dove, Ice, Denim

4x Coordinating ribbons 33cm each piece – Rick Rak, Blue Pleated, White Pleated, Silver and white Butterfly/Flower Trim

10x Small Brads – 5 Blue and 5 White glitter

4x Sets of Paper Flowers in Navy and White (2 sets of each) – 16 pieces

1x Strip of Silver Bling – 10 pieces

4x Chip Icons – These will vary in each kit – not necessarily the ones shown in the photo. 2x white and 2x silver icons.

1x Packet of dimensional butterflies – 6 pieces

Now the price$20 for the complete kit Plus $7  freight or free to pick up if you are in Christchurch . Usual retail price for all these items in the kit if they could be purchased seperately would be $26.

What is the benefit of the kits?

To purchase the papers and then buy all the individual packs to get the above items would cost $63.50. By purchasing the kit you get what you need to embellish your pages, plain cardstock to mat your photos, make your title or use for your journaling and perhaps use up additional items you already have in your craft cupboard.

To start with I will only be making up 10x kits.  Unlike some other scrapbooking kit clubs you do not need to sign up for any more than one month at a time. Those on our mailing list will be notified as to when the next kit is due for release.

Upgrade your kit.

You may want to add some double sided tape to assist in completing your layouts – Usually $3.29  purchase with your kit for $2.50 and/ or Ribbon Glue – Usually $3.29 purchase with your kit for $2.50 or purchase the two making your kit cost $25 plus freight.

 Now also the chance to win.

 Post any or all of your layouts on the Facebook page during April

If you don’t use Facebook send me the photos and I will do that for you. The layout that receives the most “Like`s” will win a scrapbooking gift. I will also add all the Facebook Layout photos to this BLOG.

Kits will be sent out during the week of the 26th March ready for you to begin uploading photos during April.

How to sign up for the first kit.

Email me and pre-order your kit – let me know if you are upgrading. I will reply and confirm your order or tell you if they have sold out.  If you receive confirmation I will also enclose Bank Account Details and ask you to make a payment by a certain date. Your kit will be couriered to you during the week of the 26th March and I will send the Fastways tracking details. Unfortunately there is no cheaper way to send 12 x 12 papers and I am subsidising some of the freight and packaging cost as freight charges have just gone up and are about to be adjusted on the Online Store.

New to Scrapbooking? Check out this site to gain some ides for layouts or Google Scrapbooking sketches and you will be amazed at how many are available for you to look at. I will try to include some sketches in your kit as well.

Now those additional photos – Double sided cardstock.

Now and Forever


Fairy Tale





 Card makers you are not forgotten!!
I am just trying to consider the best way to provide suitable card makers kits at a reasonable cost. Keep watching Facebook and this BLOG.
Of course you can get the scrapbooking kit and cut the papers up and you have the embellishments already in your kit.
If you do purchase the kit for cardmaking let me know and I will include  a seperate competition for Cardmakers.
