Please give a BIG round of applause for the 2CC JULY KIT, this month the kit is filled with the beautiful double sided papers from Tinkering Ink Alfresco collection.
You will find a gorgeous blend of pink, orange and green, with a variety of shades ranging from very strong pinks to more subtle mint green.
The papers have a perfect balance of large and small patterns to create with and included some solid plain matching colours.
I have to be honest with you all, when I first discovered what was in this month’s kit, I was a little rattled. I mean, what was this ‘Boy Scrapper’ from Aus going to do with all this pink!! And it was my month to review the kit.
But not wanting to be beaten, I patiently awaited the kits arrival.
When it turned up on my doorstep, I slowly opened the box and laid it out on the table. Still a little scared I might say, but I wanted to tackle head on!!
WELL, to my amazement and joy, these papers just came together so easily.
They were a dream to put together and only left me wanting more.
It is a fabulous range, one I feel I have given a good nudge.
You will receive 7 sheets of well weighted DOUBLE-SIDED patterned paper.
You will find awesome fresh designs on both sides of the papers.
Some papers include similar patterns on both sides, but they are different sizes for the perfect co-ordination.
The Bazzill cardstock is a great match in 2 different colours and the kit also includes a sheet of Bazzill Bling-Diva, very apt for this range.
The embellishments with this kit are beyond words and generous in quantity.
Imagination Project Alpha Rub-ons in pink, they are very easy to use and have plenty of letters. Next the Making Memories stunning Animal Crackers Ella Felt Shapes, these are just way too cute and a great variety is included in the kit.
My favourite piece in the kit, a sheet of the fabulous Hambly Studio 12x12 Overlay.
The possibilities for this Overlay are endless, check out the DT gallery for plenty of ideas. The We R Memory Keepers Gromlets match beautifully with the papers and are very easy to use. I loved using the Autumn Leaves - Heather Bailey Freshcut Die-cut Flourishes, a perfect inclusion with the floral patterns on the papers.
As usual, the ribbons finished the kit off nicely.
But wait, there was an extra treat included in this already fabulous kit.
Something you would never have seen before and were there debut appearance.
Alicia Barry Designs presents to you the STUNNING handmade Butterflies.
They are 3 dimensional and entirely made from hand, they are exceptional!!

The Kit Add-On this month is the ideal addition to these papers;
The Imaginisce Pink Blossom Brads are lovely as flower centres or directly attached to your layout. I fell in love with the Heidi Swapp Gel Blossoms – Kiwi and combined them with my flowers for extra depth on the page and the Me & My Big Ideas Fresh Blooms Rub-Ons were also easy to apply and matched really well with the collection.
So don’t just stand there reading, if you haven’t already, you need to head over to www.2croppincousinz.com and purchase this must have beautifully co-ordinated brightly coloured kit.
Trust me; you will not regret it for a moment. ENJOY!!
