Gossamer Blue kits for September...

I'll be honest, I've never really been a kit person. I'd rather choose what I like and mix and match my own picks to put together on a page or card, rather than buy a kit someone else puts together for me. However, when I received the Gossamer Blue kits for the first time, I completely fell in love and changed my mind 100% about kits. Maybe it's the fact that they are more my style than other ones I've received, I don't know, but I just had to share my excitement with you all! Here are a few things I made with the September main kit. I also received the Bits & Pieces add-on.
On the first card, I immediately was drawn to the Crate Paper - Notes and Things stickers. I painted the background of the cardstock with white paint, so my stickers would show up better. I love the gold accents! The gold foam stickers were also in the kit, made by Pink Paislee from their Solstice line.

This one is a super simple, quick and easy one. I layered some stickers and added a bit of thread. That's it!


More layering on the last one, a circle sticker backed with a gold medallion sticker, an arrow die cut, a gold heart puffy sticker and a love sticker. I added the black banners made from paper for a little bit more contrast. There are so many pretty papers in these kits that I had a really hard time deciding which one to use in the background. So many of them would have worked!

Check out the gallery to see more great stuff with the Sept. kits. I posted a little preview pic on my Instagram of some of my favorite things in the main kit. These are a great price AND what's even better is that you can cancel at any time (but I really don't think you will want to, I've heard what's coming for the holidays, and it's going to be awesome)!

Stunning! I'm with you on the "kit" reasoning. I have bought perhaps one or two. This one is getting at look at though - LOL.
