I Love the Jingle Kit!

This weekend is my local workshop using the Close To My Heart Jingle kit and I just have to tell you, in preparing for it, I have fallen in LOVE! I was able to make both of these adorable layouts and six cards....with one kit. Now granted I did have some base white cardstock that helped stretch things, but that's it...and I actually have paper still left over from my Jingle Paperpack. The base kits are only $29.95 (plus tax and shipping) and that includes the paper pack, twinkle brad accessory, color guide and a stamp set...yes, I said a stamp set. The value is close to $35 so it's a steal. You can also add on some On Target Dimensional Elements and some Cranberry ribbon and you can have the complete look I've created with all the projects above. The ink colors used are Tulip and Creme Brulee and I used the Posterboard Font Stamp set, but you can certainly use any that you like. I always am amazed at how certain kits, just aren't my favorite at first and then I really get in and use them and fall in love... Yes, I know I'm fickle from one Close To My Heart collection to the next...but they are all so beautiful so this is the one time cheating is OK! Oh and I just have to tell you I have the perfect pictures in mind for these layouts, but my old computer crashed some time ago and I had my youngest son's first Christmas on there, so I lost the photos. My husband has all of the originals and I've asked him to get me copies, but instead of you waiting for him to pull them out for as long as I might wait...I figured you would rather just see the artwork. If you would be interested in get this kit by mail, please contact me via email as this can only be ordered direct from me...not on my website.
