This afternoon I gave my cousin a scrapbooking starter kit complied from my stash after she expressed an interest in starting scrapping. Frankly, who could blame her for wanting to capture memories of this perfectly perfect little one? Wouldn't you want to scrap every single photo of that face? Then, as these things tend to go, my latest Gauche Alchemy Acme Kit arrived to replenish my stocks!
Quite apart from loving what's inside them, I even love the act of opening up their kits. They're always packaged so nicely, this time everything was wrapped in an old dressmaking pattern and pink rope. Bliss!
The Acme Kit contains a mix of vintage and modern ephemera alongside traditional papercrafting supplies:
Over on the Gauche blog they're in the process of assigning alternative names to their colour kits. This one [obviously] is the pink kit which has been newly re-named 'Pink Parts'!! It now sits alongside 'Blue Streak' and 'Banana Hammock' [I'm sorry, but I still snigger every time I read that one!!] in the Gauche Alchemy online shop and, if you think you can stay [just] within the bounds of common decency and help them re-name their purple kit then pop over there now. You can win a kit too ....
And yes Hannah Banana your eyes are not deceiving you that is a pink plastic flamingo you've spied there!! Karma was obviously paying me back, very specifically, in kind for the cocktail flamingo I donated to you on Wednesday!!!
Do you reckon if I gave you my old car tomorrow I'd be rewarded with a brand new one next week?
