The middle of each month signals the release of Scrap-a-Doodle Doo's KIT OF THE MONTH that I am happy to say I have designed!!!

This month features papers and embellishments from Simple Stories' Life Documented Collection.  (LUV the COLORS and patterns in this collection!!)  The kit consists of all of the materials to complete four pages (two 2-page layouts), as well as color pictures and directions.

I am so happy with how this month's Kit of the Month turned out!! 

The papers and colors are soo cool - the THEME can be used for everyday photos, or to scrap photos of special memories!  The 2 (2) page layouts include 3 TECHNIQUES with instructions too! - There is a  LARGE chipboard shape, that you will cover with patterned paper, which will give a raised element to your page. Each page has a PINWHEEL ( pattern & instructions included!) and I also include instructions on how to "paper pleat!"  You are going to LOVE this technique too! 

GET EM WHILE THEY LAST - QTYs are LIMITED so call the store ASAP  - OR - they can be ORDERED ONLINE - and either held for you at the store to pick up - or shipped to you too!

Here is are 2 SNEAK PEEKs :

Each kit is a great value at $19.99 plus S & H (if you do not pick it up at the store).   That is JUST $5 per page!!

Quantities are limited, so reserve yours today!

You're gonna LUV it!
