January's kit hit the store!

So, you think you've seen it all from QKD? Well, think again!! This month's kit ROCKS!! It's got coloring for Winter yet is fun and playful for any time of the year. The stamp set features 3 different paisleys all different sizes... and some fantastic script words purrrrrfect for any occasion!

We chose the "Delight" papers from Dream Street Papers for our monthly kit because they are fun and elegant all in one. This kit is jam packed with embellishments from Making Memories, Fancy Pants, Queen Designs and more! This month we've added a tool! You'll receive a paper piecer that is pointy on one end and sticky on the other to pick up those tiny bits of paper without smudging your nail polish! This sassy kit is filled with bling and sparkle. There's rhinestones that look like diamonds and crystal brads to look like a diamond ring!

For a limited time, we are offering a free stamp set with each month of kits when you subscribe to the 12 month club. You get to pick the stamp set! Who else offers that?
