A walk through Cake Walk!


Well the new kits are out and are arriving at their new homes. To start off this month I thought we could take a look through each of the new kits. Today I've got Cake Walk, the new Lite kit so let's take a look shall we :)

The papers in Cake Walk are Pink Paislee Take Me Away #01 and #16, Photoplay Fun with friends 'Rosettes' and Amy Tangerine Oh Happy Life 'Sure Thing'. The a-sides, (below) are all fun and bright patterns with designs you could cut out to embellish with if you wanted to.

The paper b-sides are all neutral so great for using as backgrounds to build your layouts on top of if that's what you prefer they're a lot calmer too with the more subtle tones so if the bright patterns weren't working for you, you get the opposite on this side.

The alphabets in Cake Walk are the easy to use puffy stickers from Freckled Fawn. This grey colour is a good neutral and it works in a way that it's pretty when mixed with the lilac and pink tones in the kit and then mixed in with the greens and blues it's more masculine. 

Also in Cake Walk are label sheets. These have been designed to work with everything in the kit. The coloured ones are super easy to cut apart with scissors. They're handy to use as sub titles or journalling starting points. They're just the right size for 3x4 cards too if you're creating pocket scrapbook pages.

The other label sheet is a bold black with a stamp effect font for the messages. Stamping white on black is super difficult to pull off so this gives you the same look but in a quick easy format! You can cut them out in thin strips or thicker strips.

You could also cut them out in shapes. This is a really easy way to make an arrow kind of shape. Fold roughly in half without creasing too bad and cut off each end at opposite angles. Open it out to get your arrow shape.

The butterfly stickers in the kit offer another bold contrast with the black designs on clear. You can apply them right on the papers. Try out layering up your paper pieces first and then adding a sticker or stickers over the top of the different layers.

Or to give them a 3D look apply them to paper and cut out folding up the wings a little.

There are cute little laser cut wooden embellishments in Cake Walk too. You can leave them wood or colour them with paints or inks. This is a chalk inkpad, (VersaMagic).

All the embellishy bits built up together.

One last bit is the cute postcard you can use for journalling or a recipe, it could be used on a page about something someone else made for you if you're not the one who does the cooking ;). The new season of Great British Bake Off is starting at the end of August too so I had to put something to do with baking in the kit!

This month they'll be classes for subscribers with all four of the new kits so make sure you check your kit messages to get the hand outs. I'll post them up here on the blog too.

Check back in for a look though the main kit Hooray next!
