LOVE LETTER KITS MAKE GREAT HOME DECOR!
CTMH came out with kits called "Love Letters for this month of January in honor of National Papercrafting Month. I have to admit, I was not overly thrilled with the kit but...then I created one letter and instantly fell in love. Each kit comes with a heavy chipboard letter and all the parts and pieces to create the flowers, as well as an instruction booklet. I have shared photos of projectsI have made throughout the month but I think this one is my most favorite! I added photos to the letters for Payton's room but the letters look fabulous without photos, too. You can decorate a letter for just about anything. You can do a monogram, spell a word like I did for Payton (other words would be "HOME", "LOVE", "FAMILY", "FRIEND", "THRIVE" "BALLET"., "POINTE."). Single letters look nice in shadow box frames (I got mine at JoAnns). Each letter kit is $18.95 ($21.89 with shipping and tax) and if you buy 5 letters you get the 6th letter kit FREE!. I added some pearls and gems to the center of the flowers on my projects. Those are available for an additional cost. I also used a shimmer brush ($6.00) to add some shimmer to my flowers. I do recommend the quilling tool when creating the flowers ($9.20). I would love to do a workshop for any of you who are interested in creating a word or a single letter. I have a studio here at my home and would love for you and your family and friends to come here for a workshop if you want guidance in putting your letter kits together (if you get 5 friends than your letter could be FREE!). These letters are only available until WEDNESDAY, JANAURY 31st. So would have to place the order on or before then but we can hold the workshop any time once the kits come in. These would make a GREAT Valentine's Day gift! At the workshop I will teach you how to add some ink to the flowers, too! With some of the extra flowers I created scrapbook pages and she paper flower pots! If you prefer a different color of flowers than the pink that come with the kit-I can cut you a different color! If you are interested please let me know on/before TUESDAY, January 30th!
