Bonzai from Kellybell Designs

Get your passports ready because it's time to take another trip through the Epcot World Showcase. Kelly has landed in Japan this week. The Japanese pavilion is a beautiful place to relax and soak up the traditional scenery. It's a mix of maple trees, bamboo trees, footbridges, koi ponds and tranquil garden settings. So let's take a peek at what the new collection looks like.

Don't you just love it?? The unique country specific elements are really what makes or breaks a good kit. And this new kit has the perfect blend of Japanese tailored elements and papers. You'll find this kit is a great match for scrapping your photos from Pick A Pearl, Teppan Edo, Taiko drummers, Tokyo Dining and serene pagoda temples. Inside this kit you'll find koi fish, banners, Japan flag, fans, flowers, flairs, paper lanterns, noodle bowl, rice bowl, chopsticks, pagoda temple, shell, shrine, gate, gate post, stitching, cat, ribbons, bonsai tree and much more. There's 15 papers in soft pastel tones mixed with serene patterns. The full alpha is a lovely mix of cream and red. This collection allows you to mix soft colors and yet highlight boldness with the reds and blacks.

The premade page starters, paper stacks and word art titles really show off the great mix of colors in this collection. I've come to rely on using 1-2 premade items in each layout. It's just so easy to use them as a jump starter on your page.

The pack of 6 journal cards is a must have! Even if you're not a pocket scrapper, theses can still be used for journaling or to add an accent to the page.

All of these new items will be be 25% off this weekend only. You can find Bonzai and all of the Epcot World Showcase collections inside the Kellybell Designs Store.

One of the best ways to visualize what you can do with a kit is to see some sample layouts. It certainly helps to spark some creativity and get some good ideas of ways to scrap with this kit. To see the Bonzai layouts from all of Kelly's CT members, head on over to Kelly's Blog.

I know you're looking forward to seeing some out of this world freebies that Kelly's CT members have made for you with the Bonzai collection. Here's your path for today. Make sure to give the gals a hug and have a great weekend!

Happy Scrapping!

Just Us {September} from Wendy Tunison Designs

Just Us {September}?  That can't be right!  But it is.  You may be wondering why on earth Wendy Tunison Designs is releasing a September kit in February so I'll tell you.  It's because Wendy fell behind in her release schedule for the Just Us Series last year and she's playing catch up.  LOL!  She's still got to finish July and August and then all 12 months will be finished.  So if she's a little out of season, that's why!  September means back to school for most of us and this kit is chock full of everything you'll need to scrap those special moments.  Filled with bold patterns and doodles, this kit is perfect for everyone from preschool through college graduation!  It reminded Wendy of all of the notebooks she filled with doodles and the way we use to cover our books in grocery bags and then decorate them for each class.  She'll never forget the way Andy doodled on her Geometry book when she was in high school with the words, "Gee I'm A Tree."  LOL!  With a fun handmade feel, this kit is so much fun to play with and I'm sure you'll have as much fun as I did with it!  The previews are linked.
