Guest Designer Nicole

Hi all,

Our fab guest designer Nicole is back this week with not one but two amazing August Kit projects.

Nicole said "Here are two things I have made with [The August Kit] so far. The first is a cheap unpainted ikea mirror. I covered it in paper from the kit and added lots of the embellies from the kit also. The bird and the key have been painted with the distress crackle paint from the kit, im really loving that stuff!!

The 2nd image is a small square frame again from ikea. The inside edges and back are again lined with the kit paper. The heart die has been painted with the crackle paint :) The letters were gotten from a die swap - the Tim Holtz vintage market letters. I painstakingly covered them with paper from the kit and cut them back out. Need to get this die! Apart from how long it took to cut the letters out and letting paint dry this one was a super quick project with a E4.99 picture frame!

I think you will all agree that these are two amazing and original projects. To see more of Nicole's work visit her blog!

Remember you too can be a guest designer by emailing a couple of pics and short description of the projects you have made with the relevant months kit!

We look forward to seeing more amazing projects from our guest designers.
