...and what a kit it is!!! It's loaded, but seriously it has to be done properly in order to have the right tools to follow along with Mr. Tim Holtz :)
So in your kit you will find three different colours of ink, straw, olive and brown, and those three colours are applied in three different ways....stamp pad, spray and stain. You will also find a blending tool in your kit as it's one of the most important tools for inking. What will you do with those wonderful inks? You will use them on Tim's resist papers of course! You will receive 5 different sheets of Tim Holtz resist paper.
The resist papers are paired up with The Paper Loft, you will receive 8 sheets of co-ordination paper, 2 sheets of 4 designs. The Brown foam thickers match perfectly with the Paper Loft patterns. An entire package of Tim Holtz gears is in your kit as well....I personally LOVE those things, perfect clustered together on a layout and small enough to look awesome on a card. A potpourri of brads, chipboard buttons, twine and grunge paper shapes will also be included.
I'm not done yet :) Also in your kit you will find some burlap, how cool is that? Burlap looks fabulous on cards as a background piece or strips on a layout is cool too. Need more embellies? How about some flattened bottle caps? FUN!! and regular bottle caps too.....and I save the best for last...the Boys Rule Exclusive Embellie :) Grunge paper gears...yep, very cool! What will you do with yours? You get 2 large, 2 medium and 2 small. Ink them, stamp them, emboss them....or leave them plain, they have so many possibilities don't they? If you use them as a template you will get double the use out of them :)
Watch the blog this week for ideas and tips of what to do with this awesome kit!
If you sub and wish to purchase past kits it's best to email me and I will send you a seperate invoice as the shipping will be cheaper than stated.
PS...please excuse the dust around here we are making changes and who would have thought it took a lot of time and work! It doesn't always all come together right at the same moment in time as one would have thought :) no worries, we will get there :)
