June - Express The Moment Cards

Have you ever tried a monthly kit club? I'm still designing cards every month for Kim at Express the Moment. ETM is a local business... It's always good to support the local business owners. :) In addition to the monthly kits, Kim always has other good online sales and the occasional warehouse sale and great deals on things like bulk supplies and Bazzil cardstock. I invite all you unfamiliar people to check it out, or find ETM on Facebook.

What do I love best about getting a monthly kit? Well, Kim hand picks all of these great products for us. Matching papers, embellishments, ribbons, buttons, brads, punches, stamps and more. Each monthly kit is different and features products from different companies like My Mind's Eye, Authentiqe, Basic Grey, Echo Park and more. Kim has great taste. I never know what is going to show up each month, but I know that I will always have fun with what I get. Considering that each kit has plenty to keep me busy, the price of just $24.99 is way less than what I would spend at the craft store if I went there to shop. (Thanks, Kim!)

Here are the cards and 8x8 page that I created with this month's kit. The adorable papers and embellishments by Echo Park this month are awesome. It was like returning to my childhood. Spirograph and View Master were some of my favorite toys. Who knew they made paper about these things? Super cute picks, Kim!

No kit comes without inspiration. This month includes a page of card ideas from Page Maps . . .I was more than happy to follow along.
