Put a Spring in Your Step Peek #2

Today I've got a sneak peek of some of the non generic more quirky elements in the next kit.

We've got some cute handmade felt blossom embellishments, some fun kitschy buttons, a lovely houndstooth fabric, some fab tulle net and some very fun union jack cupcake picks.

The tulle net is great for adding texture to your projects, cut out pieces and layer it between patterned papers. It can also be used to soften patterns too so have a go at layering it over a patterned paper before you add your photo on a scrapbook page or a main embellishment on a card and it'll help it to stand out more against the pattern.
The little flowers provide texture and interest and because they're handmade you're not going to find the same ones everywhere.
I love these buttons they've got great texture too. The black and white ones are going to work with everything in the kit so you're not umming and arring about what to use, same goes for the black and white houndstooth fabric. I wanted to add some black and white because it helps to make all the colours come together and 'pop'. You can cut the fabric into strips and use it like ribbon or make some rolled flower embellishments, use it as a background or diecut it into shapes.
Finally there's the fun union jack cupcake picks. It's the royal wedding on the 29th of April and I'm sure we'll all have something to go in our scrapbooks about it so these could make great quirky embellishments. You could also of course stick them in the tops of your sandwiches or cakes on the day for a fun royal wedding tea time then take pictures to scrapbook! lol

The last sneak will go up tomorrow or the day after, we've got a peek at resins and ribbons that will be in your kit!

All going to plan the March/April 'Put a Spring in Your Step' kit will be ready to ship out to you in around a weeks time. I'll send emails out when everything is ready to go so you can pick another shipping date if you need to.
