Pitching a Tent kit released!

Howdy everyone (I’ll let y’all think Arizona is peopled with cowgirls).

Our Pitching a Tent kit (long anticipated… well, we hope, anyway…) is now available at our ArtFire shop! Whooo-hoo!

Pam Thorburn graciously agreed to rip our kit apart and make some bitchin’ projects with it. (Be sure to check out her blog – lots of great stuff there!)

Here’s the cover of a mini-book she made. I’ll reveal what’s inside later… gonna make you wait (my specialty).
First, the “before” photo:

Aaaand, the “after” photo:

Another project – this time a layout… I love this one!

One last thing before I continue on with the kit photos. We commissioned Harley Dee of Florence, Alabama to make some adorable fabric flowers for this kit. Each kit has a different flower – here’s a sample from her Etsy shop:

Thank you, Harley!

On to the nitty-gritty. This is a limited edition kit – only 11 are available. Head on over to our ArtFire shop and make it your very own.

Oh man, you’re gonna eat this up with a spatula. A spork?
