Rainbows and Plants Kits in the Mail On Sale Now!

I designed a mix of styles for this Kits in the Mail offering. Guess which one is my favorite…it’s hard to choose! Vibrant colors herald spring is coming on the rainbow card. The earth tones is what is actually happening outside in my area right now.

Supplies included in the kit…supplies that can be wrapped between the cardstock will be contained in cello envelopes. A selection of pots and potted plant images are included too but did not make it on the photo.

Please note that as supplies are being used, the background pattern papers may change design. If you like the designs featured in the photo, order quick using the PayPal buttons below. Included in your purchase will be a 15 project pdf idea file delivered to your email inbox for additional inspiration!


Please note that I used the Forever Fern stamp set and Melon Mambo ink pad to stamp the “Hello” sentiment on the cloud for the inside sentiment. You will need to provide your own sentiment stamp set, ink pad and adhesives to complete the kits. I suggest fussing cutting the rainbows, clouds and plants before following along my craft along video.

Here is a link to my Youtube video showing what is included in the kit.

Thank you for your support!
