1,2,3 Create Monday!

What can I say other than "WOW!" Flourishes kicked off something new last week called 1,2,3 Create kits -- it's a kit that has everything you need in one package! It has ribbon, embellishments and paper -- all in one! Well, folks loved the first kit so much, it sold out in just a few days! With some new goodies just arriving to the store, the gals decided to unveil a second kit. Wanna see?

Isn't that to die for? It makes me swoon! This kit contains 1 yard of 1-1/2" silk white ribbon, 2 yards of 1/4" rose silk ribbon, 1 yard of cotton ruffle ribbon and 2 yards of avacado cotton linen ribbon. For embellishments, we have 5mm white opalescent mosaic stickers, 12 prima roses (measuring roughly 1" wide) in shades of baby pink and a 48 page pack of Prima Sparkling Spring paper (24 designs with 2 of each one). All for just $18!!!

While I was putting together a card with this kit, I had an "ah-ha" moment! The cotton linen ribbon in this kit can be frayed kind of easily. That gave me an idea. Why not pull a few of the middle strings....


Pull the middle strings gently and keep tugging and this is what you get... a ruffled ribbon!


After I was finished, I took some of the papers from the kit, an image I had colored up from the From the Desk Of set on Classic White card stock with Copics (Sweet Pea, Spring Greens and some of the lighter colors from the Sunflower collections grouped by Flourishes). Add some stitching, paper piercing and then some of the cotton ruffle ribbon from the kit and you're almost done! The finishing touch is one of the little Prima Fairy Tale Roses. I just love these! These little flowers are all the rage right now!


I have to tell you, just like the last kit that sold out quickly, there are only a limited number of these kits on hand! So, if you like what you see, you might want to grab one while you can! I can't tell you how much I have loved creating with something that I know is 100% color coordinated. It really takes the guess work out of card making!

If you liked the kit I showed last Monday, Leslie and Dawn have some more creations that they have on display today over on their blogs so be sure to click on their names and check out their lovely work! See you back here soon!
