The August kit is awesome just like every other kit that has been released! No wonder they are getting sold out so quickly. Consider subscribing HERE if you haven’t already since it’s only $19.95. If you want one of the card kits without being a subscriber it will cost you $24.95 and they can’t guarantee to have one on stock. So hurry up!!

My favorite thing in August’s card kit? If I had to choose just one then it’s the stencil! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!  But have you seen the papers? the stamp set? the burlap flower? the flair badges?

CARD #1

Here is the first card I made for today. I used the stencil to create the background.

    You really made full use of the kit. What great projects! I think that little envelope is one of my favorite images from the set. Using it floating through the sky as if it were a kite with string is pure genius. Your videos are always fun to watch. Very nicely done.

    Great cards. The sentiments really speak to who we are – card makers. The little envelopes will work their way into many card making projects also.
