Well to say the Special Delivery kit is packed with goodies is an understatement! Seriously! I have made an altered item, a layout and a card with it and haven't even made a dent in all the paper in the kit! LOVE it.
So thought I'd show you in case you were interested in getting a kit and were sitting on the fence. Take a look.....
First off is a card I made the other day.
I'm loving yellow at the moment and this kit has some in it which I've used over and over.
Are you wondering how you can see through it? Pretty cool huh?! I've used a transparency then popped some paper over the back of it so you can't see the transparency and it looks like the circle is just floating in mid air.
Next is the project that I made for Prima as part of the group of instructions you get for free when you order the kit. I love this project. I've taken a packet from some Prima Wildflowers then altered it.
See that seam binding hanging down through the cylinder? It's holding a mini album...
It's a really cute little album, which I've sewn together. You'll get to see how when you purchase the kit.
The third thing I made was a layout. The photo was taken at SENZ and when I saw it I was shocked. More about that at the end.
The only thing you'll see here today that isn't in the kit, is that muslin on this layout.
As I said at the beginning, I wasn't too impressed with that photo. Oh man! But as I tell you all in my classes, it's really really important to be in our scrapbooks, to take photos of ourselves and so I decided to use it anyway, and I put some journaling on the back explaining my feelings. Thought I'd share.....
I don’t like this photo. Might even go as far as saying I hate it. Well, not of Sarah, but of me.
Goodness. When you put on weight you often don’t realise how bad it’s getting until its way too late.
But as I tell all the wonderful ladies in my classes, it doesn’t matter what you look like. It just doesn’t. And more importantly, we need to believe that.
We all need to take photos of ourselves, we need to be in our scrapbooks. We need to be present for the family to remember us, what we look like. Our smiles. Our expressions. The love in our eyes. Us.
That is far more important than anything else. And that’s what the quote on the beautiful Prima paper says. So why not own it? Why not make it true? Why not embrace the inner beauty so my daughter doesn’t grow up with the same insecurities and hang ups I did.
And so I scrapbooked this photo. I scrapbooked my love of my daughter. I scrapbooked us together. Hanging out. Having lunch. Her watching me teach. A memory my daughter has of ‘the best day of the school holidays’.
Jeepers, if that’s not important, what is?!

A class where I was teaching with Limor Webber.
Thoughts surrounding weight have been on my mind alot of late. I've found the most amazing blog that speaks to me. She's called The Militant Baker. One day I'll share more of my thoughts on weight, but for now, I think that says it all.
As you can see, I've got 3 pretty comprehensive projects, and yet, I still have a ton of product left in the box.
So if you are interested, I'm putting in the Kiwi/Aussie order tomorrow (Monday). If you're keen on getting this kit and saving a bit of money, then get in touch with me. Last chance for this month this way.
