New Topper Sets

Good Morning Krafty Friends and Followers

The boys over at Kraftyhands have introduced 3 new topper sets to the family of their other fantastic die cut topper range.  These are called Summer of '59, Sweet Sentiments and Cinema Chic.  They have also brought out digi die cut topper which are called Colour me Florals.

Whilst I was over there I made 3 samples using one of each of the new topper sets.  I so wanted to have a go at the new "Colour me Florals but I didn't have any colouring mediums with me as I had left them at home.  Never mind hopefully I will get to play next time.

Apologies about the photographs I took them on my phone and couldn't quite get the effect I was looking for.


This is from the Cinema Chic Topper Set 


This is the "Summer of '59"


This is from the Sweet Sentiments.

The charms, bows and blooms can also be found on the Kraftyhands Website.
