This kit took its time to jell, but I love how it turned out! It has a mix of subtle sea colors with vintage letters and some beautiful Edwardian ladies... you could make a beach-themed collage, or antique ATCs, or tiny letters tied with a bow as a vaguely Valentine's Day project. Lots of options!
The prints on the backs of the 3 papers from the Seaside & Me group are really what caught my eye! Pretty trims that don't scream "SUMMER BEACH"... they would be nice borders edging a card, or even a whole wall of wallpaper in a miniature room.
In addition to the FIVE scrapbook papers, there is a new Small Symmetrical Flourish Set (a chipboard set of flourishes that could be "just" pretty trims but also look like ocean waves).
And even more:
- New Edwardian Women Collage Sheet (I love these ladies! I specifically chose full figures, so you can use them in a collage looking out over a balcony or a railing.)
- New Mini Folding Envelopes Collage Sheet (With all those Edwardian ladies looking a little wistful — and some holding letters — I thought it would be fun to have miniature envelopes that you could fold into working miniatures. The largest envelopes are approx. 2" x 3" when folded. Plus there are some interesting envelopes (just the fronts or backs) you could add to a stack of letters and tie up with a ribbon.)
- 1 sheet from the new Parchment for Mini Letters (perhaps to make some tiny letters for those envelopes)
- 2 sheets from the new Waves & Seaweed Solid-Color Paper Set
(And check the newsletter announcing this kit for another coodinating collage sheet and more swirly chipboard trims!)

Kits are announced the first weekend of each month. However, if you sign up for a subscription, your kit will probably have already been mailed to you.
A note on timing for subscribers: the kits don't ship till your automatic payment is made; the recurring payment date is based on the date you signed up for the subscription. If you'd like to make a 1-time "catch up" payment so that you'll be first in line to receive all future kits, contact Customer Service.
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).
Kits from previous months will be available for purchasing until sold out.190203KB 190217RT 190203new
