Awesome News!!! (Christmas Countdown Mini)
I have some super AWESOME Christmas inspired news to share with you! Being that it's November first what better time than to head towards the Winter Holiday season. My dear friend Carrie has put together the most amazing Christmas Mini Book Kit!!!! In the same style as a "December Daily" mini, this Christmas Countdown Kit has everything you need except scissors and adhesive. I mean my goodness I watched the video explaining the contents and I just kept thinking "no, there can't still be more in this kit" So much stuff! And gorgeous one of a kind trendy things! That's exactly what thsi kit screams to me, trendy yet unique and full of original handmade pieces! One of the best features for me is that if you didn't want to, you absolutely would not need to add anything to kit, it's all there and you will still have left overs for layouts, cards or project life. But, of course for those of us who love to add that extra-ness, there's tons of room for your own stamping and embellishing and whatever else your heart wants to add! This kit could for sure be your one stop for Christmas scrapping supplies this year!

Here's what the creator Carrie has to say about it:
For 2013 I decided to put together some supplies for documenting December 1-25th and all the fun leading up to Christmas! I even created some custom digital print and cut elements that are included in the kits as physical product, but once your kit is purchased you will receive a free download of these elements so you can print up extras for Christmas cards, layouts, etc. This video is so fun and creative and informative!!! You really get to see the potential of the kit!
So myself along with Carrie and a couple others will be building a a skeleton book through November then adding in our photos around the December first mark. I will be sharing ideas, photos and video of my progress here on the blog!
Hurry to get yours, quantities are limited and then play along with us in Documenting you holiday season, your way with this amazing kit!
You can purchase the kit here: Blume and Grow Market This is a steal at only 40$.
I can't wait to get my hands on mine and start building something beautiful with this crafty goodness!
