Made for a friend
You will need:
Font of choice – I used Machine Script, which you can find
Scrapkit is a beautiful kit called Travel by Nika of Devilish Designz.
This is the same kit as the tutorial above called Her Travels. As you can see, it is almost two kits in one, the elements are so different. Such a fun kit to work with, thanks Nika.
Nika’s kits are being sold at ScrapsnCompany. You can purchase them
Tube of choice. I used Paul by Danny Lee
You can purchase these tubes from ScrapsnCompany also.
