I'm so excited to share this project with you! Earlier this year, I was asked to design a kit for December Daily 2016 and, given that I love paper products, I was immediately on board! This kit can be used in conjunction with Scrapbooking/Memory/Journaling Binders OR you can order the kit to just own the first ever product with my brand on it, to use on mood boards, to wrap gifts, craft with or anything else you fancy!
Other than my books, I've never created an actual product before so this was very exciting and came so naturally for me, which was an exciting thing to find out - seems over a decade of blogging and seeing/touching products has really soaked in because now I feel like the next step is to continue designing products and see where this world of making can take me. I just want to get my hands and heart into something that lives outside of the web - so much of what I do is virtual, so to hold products in my hands is a very exciting experience for me.
The cattledogs kit is part of a very limited edition, so if you want one, you have to order it as soon as possible. Kits ship worldwide and cost $19.99.
In the kit you get: (4) 6x8 Papers (31) Journal Cards - (6) 4x6 and (25) 3x4 Transparency shapes (2 Sheets) Circle and Arrow Stickers Tube of sequins in black, copper, mint, emerald, pale pink Washi tape strips Wood veneer trees
The story behind my kit: I love Danish design so the playful, geometric patterns are a direct result of what I see coming out of Scandinavia, and the forest behind my house has inspired the nature motifs. I wanted this kit to be light and bright so that when creatives are designing their pages and laying in their photos, it will be their photos that shine and stand out and the designs of my kit will not compete or outshine the photos but rather, make them look even more beautiful. I also made sure the kit wasn't overly Christmas-y since their are so many religions and traditions with the holiday season these days that red and green, Santa and the more traditional aesthetic doesn't fit everyone. Plus, December isn't only about the holiday itself.... It's about gathering family, enjoying snowy walks, extra time playing with your children, sipping hot cocoa, baking, and thinking about the year behind and the year ago - it's a time of reflection, family and love. I selected the words - sparkle, smile, shine, love, twinkle - with my two-year-old son in mind because he has given me such a fresh view of the world through his curious eyes.
before they sell out - once they are gone, that's it - no more kits!
Thank you all so much for your support, love and good energy - I am so proud of this kit, I've had a really hard year and to do something with paper and make a pretty grouping of things that can support you and your creativity makes me so so SO happy. And thank you Ali for having me!!!!
