So most of you know I LOVE to spend time
searching my favorite handmade website (Etsy
of course).. for items to put into our kits each month! This last
month I found two items, and I wanted to show you one of them today,
even though August kits are already sold out. I didn't
get a chance to photograph these adorable hand-punched butterflies
made from vintage papers.. from
because they hadn't arrive yet! so they are making their own little
"debut"! LOL.. I just had to show you.. so when you get your August
main kit.. you can look for these cute vintage winged critters in
your "little" baggies. SO CUTE! Remember to also check out
www.twogirlzstuff.etsy.com as well!
She has the cute little hand cut labels we included in the main kit.

Here is some wonderful new inspirations from
our Scarlet Lime Customers... Gisele Julien. I met her at an event
last year in Canada.. what a sweet girl! This layout was done using
a mix of our past kits! Love how she use the flower die-cut paper,
mixed in with the paper flowers and chipboard flowers. She even used
pop dots under some of the flowers to give them a raised look.
Anne Marie did these two layouts
using the June Main kit and the July main kit. They are so full of
color and her pictures are so wonderful at telling the stories! She
did such a wonderful job at mixing all the products together as
well! Thanks Anne!
sent me this layout using our May main kit. The pictures on the
layout go perfectly with the patterned papers and the die-cut paper
hiding underneath give it a fun playful look! can't help but notice
the cute hand stamped images too :) thanks girl!
SO are you READY?? ready for
peaks of our September
kits? September is
our one year
anniversary, so we have some BIG things
planned for these kits! Our Main kit is NO exception.. with 12
papers to the Scarlet Lime! I thought it would be fun to do a line
repressing the Scarlet Lime Colors..
Green and red.. but then of course had to mix it up a bit, throwing in a
bit of yellow.. AND charcoal grey, (instead of black).. LOVE charcoal..
I think it's the new black this fall!
designed these papers for me and she did a FABULOUS job!
We also have a brand
new stamp designer
we are brining on this month as well. I have kept her hidden for too
long.. but my sister-in-law, Jayla
and always has been one talented designer. She just has an eye for
designing cool things.. and this month she created both our main kits
stamp and our project stamp! Look for more of her work, coming up in
This kit not only includes all
exclusive papers for Scarlet Lime, but some really cool products from
CHA summer. PLUS If you are a current subscriber for September.. Jayla

embellishments.. (can't you wait to see)... and this versatile
