Pinecone Press

Over the last couple of months we have been getting these really great paper crafting kits from Pinecone Press. Each kit comes with a full colour booklet that tells you how to make loads of different projects. Since I'm the 'sample girl' I get to play with all of these fun kits and make up some of the ideas. Something I really like about these packages is that you can follow their ideas exactly or add your own creativity to them. I just finished two very different kits and thought I would share them with you.

These little holders are great for Hot Chocolate but could be used for lots of other ideas like gift cards to a favourite Coffee shop.

(If you look closely you just might notice some liquid applique on those marshmallows!!)

This holder has 4 pockets and is SUPER easy to put together. The red paper and pockets are already scored and ready to go.

How cute are these penguins?!?!?

Within each kit you will find premium papers either from Pinecone Press or other well known companies like My Mind's Eye or as in the case of the next projects, Graphic 45.

All the pieces you need to make this banner come in the kit, including the yardstick to mount it on. There are loads of details on this vintage Christmas banner. The directions give you step by step instructions on how to make the rosettes and how to put it all together. I added some Glossy Accents, a bell and some Stickles for sparkle.

Here is a closer view of some of the squares:

Something else really great about these kits is that even after making the 'main' project there are lots of leftovers to make other goodies like this gift card holder:

These kits come flat in 12X12 packages so you may not notice them when you wander the store so feel free to ask about them and watch for future kits too.

Oh and PHEW am I ever glad I don't live in London (south western Ontario or in England!) right now...although I'm sure my boys would love all the snow they are getting.

Thanks for having a peek :)
