Each month we will select a product range that will form the major part of a scrap inspiration kit. A Design team member will get to play with the kit and share with you their inspiration to help you start your own project. This month Natalie has had her turn at inspiring us taking us from this pile of amazing product to this selection of awesome projects.

Natalies thoughts on the Kit "This kit was perfect for making a gift set for my husband for valentines day. I was instantly inspired to create the photo frame, and the layout and mini album came together so quickly because everything just matched so well - to finish i intend to make a card. Which i will post to the Gallery when completed"

"The photo frame took me two seconds to make. I cut out some book board and made it stand up by cutting a wedge in the back. I simply attached the photo and then used metal clips to keep it all together. I attached the ribbon with a staple and added the Heidi Swapp letters."
"The mini album was also very quick to make. I took two 12 x12 cardstock and folded them in half and then half again. I made two holes punched in the spine of the album and then ran string through the holes. I taped the edges (not the top) of the mini album but you could also use brads or eyelets and ribbon to seal the pages. I then covered the spine with ribbon. This style of mini album allows for tags to be hidden in the top opening or pocket, which is what I intend to do. I have my daughter’s artwork that I will attach to the tags and insert in the pockets. " "I look forward to seeing everyones completed works - I'm hoping choosing a winner will not be too hard"
