Life is Good Kit

I love the expression "life is good" so when this paper came out from 7 Gypsies I wanted to make something with it. I like this expression because it helps me focus on the many rich blessings in my life. This kit starts with Creek Bank Creations Scalloped chipboard piece which measures around 11.75x11.75. Now our chipboard sheets are simply BETTER than any other chipboard I've seen on the market today...and often ours is a better price. Our chipboard is board weight heavy stuff, so it doesn't flop over after you work with it. I've included an optical lens from 7 Gypsies, a full package of tags and lots of fun in this kit. I think it's fun to learn new techniques when you do a kit, and this kit has that! (keep reading) You can purchase the kit here.

Would you like to create your own board? Order the 11.75 Scallop here!

The kit contains all the papers, chipboard, embellishments and instructions for you to put the kit together at home. You will also need the following supplies:
black embroidery floss, rock candy stickles, Distress Ink Brushed Corduroy (or brown ink), Ink Blending tool if using Distress Ink, Creek Bank Creations Sanding stick, Adhesive (Scotch quick dry to adhere paper to chipboard, and Glossy Accents to attach lens to page), Brayer (optional), Sew Easy Stitch Piercing tool and blanket head for stitching. (please note we are out of stock of sew easy tools until mid march!)

You may of noticed this kit contains a flower. I've included the products you need to make the flower in the kit, and step by step instructions. It's worth me posting here how to make these flowers. Some say you need a special adhesive product to make these flowers. REALLY want you need is a great high tac adhesive, and a sheet of Wonder Tape from Ranger will do this for you. Wonder tape comes in a 8x10 sheet, and can be cut with scissors, or die cut into any shape you want. In this case we're cutting it into a circle......

Let’s make the flower!
A. Locate the red twill, and the wonder tape. Cut the tape into a 2” circle. It doesn’t have to be perfect.B. Take the red liner off the top. Leave the paper on the back. Take the end of the twill and fold it over.C. Push the folded over piece into the middle.D. If it is standing up too tall, just push it straight down.

E. Grab the twill and begin twist it, and pushing it down into the adhesive. Just keep twisting the twill, sticking it down, and turning the adhesive circle around.F. You can scrunch it up, push it down, then twist and stick it down. Just keep twisting, scrunching and sticking, and turning.
When you've filled the entire circle, take scissors and trim off any extra white showing'
H. Cut the twill so that you have about 1/4” left, and push it into the adhesive on the back.
When you get ready to put the flower on your page, just peel and stick it down. This looks great with twill, but can be used with any kind of trim. (wider stuff needs cut down)

Now that's really fun, really cool, and really easy!
