Description

Maybe in honor of the big solar eclipse this month, or maybe for the end-of-summer warm nights (perfect for star-gazing), this month's kit has a mix of eclectic images and a cool blue and sepia (to downright sunny yellow) palette.

I must say: this is a pretty group! I love all the blue and tan/yellow images and new papers (love the new scrapbook papers!). Two of the new papers have mosaic patterns that would work well as the backs of playing cards (or for a tile floor — or maybe a quilt? — in a dollhouse). (Note: the kit includes 6" x 6" cuts from 4 scrapbook papers — ample for covering the front or back of the chipboard card.)

And I got to use some images I've been collecting for well over a decade. Needless to say, I love them, too!

Speaking of playing cards: I designed 3 chipboard sets, one of which is in this kit: Stars Playing Card. All 3 sets have a laser-cut chipboard overlay over a solid back.

AND the kit includes FOUR collage sheets (see the photos below for links to each college sheet page, with lots more info).

New Collage Sheets: Andromeda, Fortune and The Sun.

Artwork! It's in the Cards (see the first wide photo below) is by Design Team Member Rhonda Secrist Thomas. That's just one of 4 cards she made (on the right side of photo, and the card backs shown on the left are beautiful, too — the flaming hearts cut out from the new The Celestial Spheres Collage Sheet overtop of the mosaic papers look great)! More info and photos in Rhonda's blog post here's a link to see all her supplies.

Good Fortune Fairy Pocket Cards (see the second wide photo below) is by Design Team Member Lora Mahaffey, using the same Stars Playing Card as Rhonda, but to much different effect! I think Lora is in love with Stickles Glitter Glue! More info in the Lora's blog post (including a tutorial on how she layered and colored the components). Here's Lora's supply list — and see the Giveaway below another set of cards Lora made!

If you buy a subscription after the 15th of the month, your first kit will be for the following month (so if you subscribe on October 16th, the November kit will be your first kit).
