New Kits Are Out!

The new Quirky Kits are being sent out this week so look out for them arriving on your doorstep! This month we're taking a nostalgic trip to the seaside. The main kit is 'The Milk Bar'. It's named after an ice cream parlor I used to visit when I was growing up during the summer holidays. I picked out ice cream colours & kitschy seaside motifs and the whole kit has an overall nostalgic/vintage summer feel.

I love the kitschy Thickers and the glitter 'ideas' sticker which I thought would be great for an ideas book or maybe a page about what your idea of a perfect summer is? The map paper would be great to plot your adventures of where you've been this summer or where you spent your favourite summer or perhaps where you would like to go in the future?
You'll also find some seam binding trim. This is great to alter and I've seen this use a lot lately with distressing  techniques for shabby chic style projects.

As always I like to add in some unexpected details. These cute little pin badges have been designed just for this kit. There's also a blank watercolour paper postcard that you can use as part of a scrapbook page for your journalling or use to make a postcard size piece of art or as a page in a minibook or even send as a postcard to yourself while you're on holiday so you can collect it when you get home to put in your scrapbook or mini book or smash book!

The Quirky Kit Lite this month, 'Ice Pops' also has a summer holiday feel but I've added in some more modern feeling detailing to this one with more bright colours and fun patterns.
The fun swirly bright Thickers add a different dimension to the peachy toned papers.

There's a little bit of vintage with the Elle's Studio handmade layers pennants and then back to the modern with the bright coloured washi tape and the hot pink seam binding. Look out for a fun little technique touch with your Quirky Kit Lite this month too - we'll be going all cross stitch!

This month we'll be joined by guest designer Daphne who'll be sharing some fun techniques and project ideas with us throughout August.

Have fun with your kits!
