Okay, so I know I was going to roll out photos of our FIRST online kit yesterday, but I have a really really good excuse.
Lots of gorgeous Northwest Sunshine - - plus water - - plus winter crabbing season just opened for Puget Sound.
I spent the day yesterday boating with my husband John on the spectacular Puget Sound, lunch in Winslow on Bainbridge Island, some salmon fishing (I actually napped in the sun and then talked to my sister on the phone most of that time), then we pulled up our crab pots. And then . . .
wait for it . . .
Its a whole lot of work and mess to catch 2 crabs-even though they were nice big ones.
But I am sure my niece Brittani will fully enjoy them when I see her later this week. We are all mad for crab. So when we got home we were exhausted, and our sweet puppies were totally wired. So after I cleaned and cooked the crab I spent most of the evening pulling on a chew toy rope.
So that brings us to Monday morning, November 2nd-
Lets talk about our first online kit- Home is Where You Are.
This is a totally custom cut house shaped chipboard album (album is 12" tall and 9" wide at the base) with windows pre cut out on the front doors- how perfect will your photo be peeking out behind one of those windows?
The sides of the album are accordion folds that the photo mats, pockets, tags and journaling cards are attached to. It makes for a fun interactive album and the perfect place to highlight your favorite family photos from fall. This project is part mini album, part display album. It would look wonderful tucked into your fall decor, or even as a centerpiece on your fall table.
The paper is October Afternoon from their Weathervane collection. I know it isn't brand new but I have had a crush on this paper since it came out, and have been waiting for the right project.
So, one of the best things about this project- all of those photo mats, tags, pockets, accordion side binding pieces, etc are PRE CUT for you. We left most of the patterned paper in full 12 x 12 sheets so you could decide which paper you wanted in which spots, but all of the other pieces are ready for you to assemble and add photos.
This kit includes:
5 different October Afternoon patterns from Weathervane (they are double sided)
12 x 12 sheet of coordinating Journaling Cards
6 x 12 sheet of coordinating Stickers
May Arts Ribbon & Trim-5 different types
Making Memories Felt Letters
Metal Rim Tags
Custom Cut Chipboard House and Doors
Precut cardstock mats, tags, library pockets-all Bazzill-French Vanilla, Yam, Pinecone, Parakeet, Lagoon
and as always full color step by step instructions.
Kit Price: $27.00
I will be putting the kits up on our website later this morning for orders. If you ordered from us last week, I am shipping out kits today and I plan to get completely caught up.
Remember to only select "Pick Up" for shipping if you can arrange to come to Sammamish or Issaquah to pick up your kits. Otherwise you need to select the shipping option.
