You and Me by Elena Tretiakova

I know we have been quiet for  a little while. All good – playing the catch up game on business and life.  before I get in to the fabulous new kit from Elena Tretiakova, just want to mention the major delay we have had with completing orders for Gabrielle Pollacco’s Happiness Is kit and additional kits of Mischief.  Our box of dusty Attic goodies has been tied up in customs. Nothing we can do but sit and wait. no reason for these things just the luck of the draw I suppose. jennifer over at Dusty Attic has been kind enough to send us out some additional decorative Scroll #2’s so we can complete the Happiness Is kit. hoping they arrive in the next week. We’ll fill orders as they were placed. once they arrive, we’ll be caught up very quickly.

OK. enough about that. On to the news of the day – Elena Tretiakova and her wonderful You and Me kit! As always Elna’s has this shabby chic look. This kit packs a kick with the added dark black paper she uses. She manages to pull off the contradicting look with ease. The kit is loaded with beautiful chipboards from so many of our favorite companies along with an assortment of beautiful Prima flowers.

Beautiful!!!!! Did you catch the subtle little angel sitting all nice and perched? Love it!

When purchasing this kit, be sure to read product description as usual. We include just about everything but there are some possible add-on’s depending on your current stash.

In addition to materials and video to make this layout, I created a bonus sample (no direction but follows Elana’s steps just the same).

Had a good time with it. Hands got a little messy (nothing I can’t handle – actually quite pleased seems I haven’t been as crafty as I’d like as of late but we are getting back on track with that too).

Kits are limited. I should mention a word about out stock/inventory…. Happy to say business is going well. We are experiencing a bit of growing pains in all the best ways possible. When we send materials to designer, we need to guess how many to stock. Because products are from all sorts of companies located all around the world just getting more later isn’t always an option.  We’re finding more and more of our kits are selling out quicker than we’d like.  We are working on this. The next round of materials to go out to designers will account for higher volume.  We will do our best to fill all our customers wants or at least provide a decent amount of time to get those orders in before selling out.  Elena is popular and sad to say we have not been able to stock enough yet. So get them while you can!!!!

New things coming… Di Garling on Monday! Another very popular designer who once again we won’t be able to keep up with demand. I am vowing to post her kit Monday so be sure to check in if you might be interested (IT IS STUNNING!!!!) we also have a BUNCH of new chippies from 2Crafty that we’ll be adding to the store over the coming days. Some very intricate pieces that are just amazing.

Jaya Raghuvanshi will debut her first kit for us very soon. Pascale B is coming back with a kick! She knows how to pack a punch with her color and I just got a look at what is coming… WOW!!! What else? Who else? If you are still with me on my rantings today…. end of the month we are brining you another mash up of two amazingly talented designers! The “G’s” will do a double! Can you guess what I could possibly be talking about?

Till the next time.
