Starburst Kits in the Mail On Sale Now!

The Starburst design really shows off both sides of the patterned papers…unless it’s paired with our Rose Gold Foil paper. I have both styles featured in my next Kits in the Mail.

Tea Boutique patterned papers are used in the card on the left. Abigail Rose patterned papers are used in the card on the right. The sentiment focal points are layered on punches with coordinating assorted ribbons and adhesive backed embellishments too. Please note that sentiments are not included in the kits. Patterned papers may be assorted from the respective paper packs and not what is shown in the photo or promotion video.

Your purchase includes an emailed pdf idea file with cutting measurements and assembly tips along with photos and supply lists of 17 additional designs in this style. A super awesome perk with purchase!

Order your kits using the PayPal buttons below.

Offer ends March 23rd so place an order or join my team now to get the pdf!

We have a few extra special posts in the Global SU Share Fair Facebook group during April to celebrate our 3 year anniversary of collaborations! Looking forward to seeing what my fellow demonstrate create to celebrate!

Paper Crafting Blog Hop Queen Bee My Favorite Bundle


Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from all over the globe. We have a wide array of projects created with current catalog products to share with you featuring our favorite bundles. You may have arrived from Traci Gardner’s blog. Hop all the way around until you get back to me so you see it all!

Queen Bee bundle is my current favorite as I love the shabby chic look that can be created with the stamps. I am also a honey beekeeper;) I opted for a repetitive pattern for this design, using Rustic Metallic dots to accentuate the floral springs.

The inside is decorated too…

Thanks for hopping with us each month. Now click here to hop to Tracy Held’s blog to see what fun project she has created.

Here is a list of the hop stops:
