I've made a start to my 2nd DT kit from Simply Create.

When I got home from my babysitting session on Sunday my 2nd DT kit from Simply Create was waiting for me. I managed to make a start on it on Monday as I had cleverly managed to have a day off.

I was really scared when I saw my kit as I don't do vintage. At all. Ever!! So far I've made two cards and a little gift bag. I also have a book to alter and I've made a start on it. I've been prevaricating a bit because it has an aperture in the front cover and I'm rubbish with a craft knife.

Here's what I've made so far. I have a whole 12"x12" sheet of images plus lace, ribbon, buttons more 12"x12"s, plain card and buttons. I also have one sheet I have no idea what to do with and no stamps. Having no stamps phased me a bit but as you can see I've managed to use some of the images. I think I can probably use all the images but only one of the sheets of DP looks Christmassy to me. I do have more ideas so I'll see what else I can come up with.

The one on the right is the gift bag. Everything I've used is from my kit except the base card and the Merry Christmas and little snowflake stamps. But these are Hero Arts stamps and are available from Simply Create.

If you've got a minute to spare I'd love to hear what you think. If you leave anywhere near Alford you can already see the results of our first DT kit and I'm sure the makes from our 2nd kit will soon be on display there too.
