I’m super excited to have recently been invited to join the ‘You Can Create It’ Team. It’s a fabulous Team of talented ladies lead by Anja Luft and Heike Fallwickl from Germany, that now spreads globally.
The Team design from a pre selected Quarterly Kit chosen by the Team and comprises of a mini kit for each month within that quarter, plus some additional items. Then each month you can check back here for inspiration for each kit. You’ll get ideas not only from the Team but you can also submit ideas to me, made from your kit, to have posted to my blog post. It’s the perfect, ‘try before you buy’ way to have a taster of each collection of the products.
What does it cost?
- For just £15.00 you will receive a Quarterly kit consisting of 3 different kits plus some additional items that includes P&P to UK addresses.
- Inspiration can be obtained each month from myself and the You Can Create it Team. You can also submit photographs of your creations using that month’s kit, to have posted to my blog, to share even more inspiration.
July’s Kit contains two 6″x6″ sheets of Bird Ballad Paper and two Bird Ballad Embellishments. The additional items within the Quarterly kit also include a sheet of Watercolour Paper, some Basic Pearls and a Copper Dotted Treat Bag.
I took two sheets of cardstock (Black and Grey Granite), a length of ribbon and some twine and pulled upon the Watercolour Paper, Treat Bag and Pearls from the kit to create my share. The fun comes in that July’s kit offers two random sheets of the Bird Ballad, so what I may have chosen to use, others may have chosen differently. It’s a fun way to see how to use the entire pack of paper.
A wash of Daffodil Delight to the middle of the Watercolour paper and a splattering from the tip of my marker pen created the background. Some fussy cutting of these delightful feathers teamed with a simple sentiment and some pearls and this card was complete.
With the remaining Watercolour paper, this second card and gift tag was created A wash of Daffodil Delight set the scene, before some fussy cut birds were set out over the top. A simple sentiment was added with a trinket. A dark cardbase helps add drama to the otherwise soft look of these cards.
Simple gift packaging can be jazzed up with a beautiful tag. Sometimes less is more.
Below you’ll find some more ideas using July’s kit from the rest of the Design Team, so take a look.

I hope you have enjoyed the inspiration that we have all shared with you this month and that you’ll head back here at the beginning of September to see what we create using this month’s kit.
Until then, I’ll thank the girls for asking me to join them and hope that you too will enjoy this journey with me.
