i got something fun in the mail a few days ago, and it came with a little something extra to share with one of you! creating keepsakes has a lot of new keepsake kits in their store right now. there are some really fun mini album kits, lots of card kits, and then some layout kits. one of them looks a little something like this:
this is the party time kit, which came out just a few weeks ago. back at the beginning of the year, i was asked to put together a birthday kit. from start to finish. i had a few quidelines, as far as how many papers, and what types of embellishments to include. but then i got to just run with it, and see what i came up with.
and this is what i came up with. this is the photo that i took of my "kit", when i sent it in to get approval. i didn't have the buttons on hand that i wanted to use, so that's the one thing that's different in the actual kit. i loved the fun, brightly colored papers. i wanted this to be able to work for girl or boy themed pages.
here's a full shot of one of my sample layouts. in the kit, you get the full instructions, to re-create my three sample layouts. all completed with just the contents of the kit, and no special tools or supplies. or take the kit, and run with your own ideas, to create fun party layouts. OR. you could get even crazier and use this kit for something entirely different, and not have a party theme at all.
creating keepsakes was generous enough to send me an extra kit, to give away to one of my lucky blog readers. just leave me a comment, and you'll be entered in the random drawing. i'll leave the comment open until saturday night, and will announce a winner on sunday.
