The Better Times Workalong Kit was an irresistible addition to our kit collection because…Well look at it! It’s BEAUTIFUL & I haven’t seen anything like it in scrapbooking for a long time. This collection is really exciting. It comes from Karola Witczak in Poland, who is the Scrapbooking Royalty there! Her business is called MINTAY & the papers are like nothing I have ever seen before. Each paper is so detailed it’s like a work of art, so these papers are really easy to use as you can just lay a gorgeous photo on top of a mount of layers or cardstock, add a title & some sequins & you’d be done.
There are also plenty of fussy cutting opportunities too. The papers are a superiour quality weight at 250gsm meaning they should work really well for fussy-cutting, making your own die-cuts & creating your own mini books. There are a couple of old fashioned door papers which are really trendy right now, plus a wonderful floral wreath paper, a whole sheet of butterflies to fussy-cut & 12 element cards on another sheet that are great for layering, using in mini albums or for Project Life type pocket pages. Lastly there’s an adorble woodland scene complete with birds & hedgehogs!
This Kit is very girly, shabby & romantic & would work really well for end of school or uni graduation photographs as well as for engagement & wedding albums. The best of Summer colours & outdoor images are all incorporated here for sophisticated Summer Memories where you don’t want bright primary colours & beach scenes – you want something more grown up & sophisticated!
Every Workalong Kit release is timed so that our 4 Ella Bonella Designers will each be working along right by your side, inspiring you & being around to give you any helpful advice you may request, on their special day in our Facebook group. All the designers will work along with you for at least 6 weeks, with a different designer working with a different kit on each day Monday – Thursday. So once you’ve chosen a kit, or various kits, you’ll get inspiration for each kit at least once per week, be able to ask any questions you may have as well as load your work into the kit albums.
Each Workalong Main Kit includes 6 patterned papers, 3 co-ordinating cardstocks, one set of alphas & 2 sets of embellishments.
The Better Times Workalong Kit contains 6 patterned papers from Better Times by Karola Witczak for her own company, Mintay.
3 textured cardstock sheets from American Crafts in white, lemon yellow & deep turquoise. These colours co-ordinate with the papers & matting your photos with them will really help your photos stand out & be the stars of your page despite the gorgeous backgrounds.
The American Crafts Sticker Sheet that comes with this kit is OFF THE CHAIN! It contains 168 pieces 0ver 3 sheets sized 20 x 27.5 so they’re a good size -won’t get lost in the business of the papers & are WATERCOLOUR OMBRE, so you get another super hot trend!
For embellishing this kit is supplies with a super handy sequin palette pack of 8 different colours, that all co-ordinate. These are the best quality sequins for scrapbooking because they are faceted (catch the light) & cup (so not completely flat) 8mm so not super small, & the colours are saturated so they’ll be noticed as they are all a low sheen with no transparency. GOOD SEQUINS don’t have the same effect as bad ones, & they’re hard to source!
Vicki Boutin Layered Vellum Butterflies finish off the mix- they were very popular in one of her recent collections & go really well with the kit – especially as they add some height when the vellum wings are slightly lifted up.
