Journey Album Kit and More

Good afternoon to you all:) I am guessing that if you are lucky enough to be at home today then you are most probably out in the garden making the most of this glorious probably will not last and I am guessing that our up and coming Bank Holiday weekend will probably be a wash out:(
So as I was saying in yesterdays post I am thrilled that you all like the idea of me doing some kits.
Like I said I have a few bit's to sort out before I can actually take orders, but here are a few pictures of the Journey album that I plan to put together as a kit. You will get a written tutorial and also a link to a private You Tube video with me demoing the making up of the album...I am doing this tomorrow with the help of my dear sister who is much more technical minded than me:)
Now, the only difference with the actual kit that you will get is that I will have to re-design the front cover as I am not allowed to sell precut dies....of course if you already have the luggage die or want to make this one and buy the die then that is fine you can of course make this front cover. Also I will not be able to include ready stamped tags etc, but I will of course replace these with some elements from the papers.
So hear are some pictures of my first kit:

Journey Album Kit


This opens open's to reveal even more pockets closing with a hidden magnet:
These are the hidden pockets

This is another little hidden pocket flap
This is it opening on the inside revealing more pockets and tags

This is the outer side

Here is the album standing - showing you all the exciting doors, flaps, belly bars etc
I hope these pictures give you some ideas what you will be able to make..... I think this would be perfect for any of you crafters that have never made one before....It is fun and not to difficult to make as I will give you full instructions:) It took my class about 7 hours to complete!
To keep the cost down the panels/tags/main paper for the pages will vary, but will be from the same collection so that everything will still co-ordinate. You will get everything including the Hobby House pearls, charms and lace, twine, ribbon, the chipboard and rings to make the whole album. You will just need adhesive, tools and the all important stickles:)....well only if you like your bling!
Tomorrow I will show you how the kit will come packed...all labelled for each page etc so easy to construct:)

The cost of the kit is £15 including postage in the UK for other countries please email.
I have lot's of other kits which I will be releasing about once a month and possibly a few smaller ones in between. One being the Raindrops on Roses Criss Cross card, but if you have seen anything on my blog that you would quite like to see in a kit then just email me and I can see what I can do:)
I would love to hear your views on the cost etc so if you have any questions at all just email me at
Oh and by the way payment will be via Paypal  once I get it sorted and also watch this space....may be a little Amazon shop too:) x
Another thing is I am thinking of doing some classes around the UK maybe using the Holiday Inn or somewhere which is would be suitable...Village Halls etc (May need your help with this) I was thinking I could also include some weekend retreats.....what are your thoughts?
If anyone interested if you email with the location/s that would be accessible to you then I will start some lists and see if I get enough interest. Also if you let me know how far you would be willing to travel.
Ok! That's all from me today... I had better get prepping for Junes show:)
Enjoy the rest of your day:) x


  1. Hi Nikki
    I'm surprised that no one has commented on your fabulous journal. It looks stunning. I would be by interested in a class if you were in the Oxfordshire area. You are going to be one busy last. But your designs are so inspirational. Congratulations to all the winners. Smaller kits would be good to.

  2. Hi nikki. I love your journal and would be more than interested in buying the kit. I also liked the one you made with the once upon a time kit. That was beautiful. I would be interested in that one too please. Love it.

  4. Hi Nikki,

    Absolutely beautiful, sorry I couldn't make the class, Janice has a kit aside for me and I can't wait to get started on it. I, too, would be interested in kits, love all your cards, you truly are a very talented lady xxx

  5. Hi, I am very pleasantly surprised at the price you are going to charge for your kits, can not wait
    to order, although I have never done anything like this before. Lilian

  6. Sorry Nikki I have only just had the chance to peruse the blogs and comment what with working! Your album is lovely and I am sure your kits will go down a treat. As for weekend retreats they take a lot of organising but I am sure depending on where they are being held they would be terrific fun and you would have loads of takers.

    Good Luck

  8. Looks a lovely kit and a great price Nikki . xx

  9. Hi Nikki, the album looks great and the price sound very reasonable, I will watch with interest to see what future kits you release. I would certainly be interested in a class if you came to South Yorkshire, weekend retreats may not be possible for me as I have a lot of family commitments at weekends, but never say never!

  10. Hi Nikki, Wow you've done it once more! I Love this Awesome Album I Love The Soft Colours and the price is really great, I would Truly Love to attend your workshops,
    Fabulous idea for the Amazon Shop.
    Take Great Care
    Love and Hugs from Sam

  11. Hi Nikki lovely project and love the album it is gorgeous. The price is reasonable too. Will be interesting to see other projects you bring us. Workshops sounds great, lots of work and busy and exciting times ahead for you .x

  12. Morning Nikki, I love your mini album, it is truly gorgeous, and the price is quite reasonable too for the kit, although why you can't do the dies or pre-stamped tags, I presume this is a ruling from HC.
    I would love to do workshops with you if you came to the Cheshire area, I would be so excited.
    You are definitely 'stretching' yourself with all these ideas you have in your mind, I hope it all goes well for you, I 'salute' you !!
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  13. Hi Nikki
    I like the kit ideas and would love perhaps something with MDF like the clock you did as one of the samples on create and craft.Also would be interested in workshops in the Cheshire area.
    Love Angela x

  14. Morning Nikki
    Love the idea of the mini album, I have made some with Graphic 45 and your price is reasonable. Wish you could come to Leicester too with classes

  15. Looks great to me Nikki. I'm looking forward to the Raindrops on Roses kit - I love all the papers and the criss cross cards are fab. Pat x

  16. The kit looks lovely! I'm not into journaling myself, but so many people are and what a gift it would make! The journey collection is beautiful. The price seems very reasonable too, especially considering all the work you've put in the design, video etc. I wish you every success with it.

  17. Hi Nikki, kits are a great idea and I am certainly interested in getting them. Look forward to the details. Love this album.

  18. Hi Nikki. Well, just read through your blog, looked at the pictures twice and all I can say is "HOW MUCH" !! For all that ! WOW !
    Just wish my daughter was crafty as this kit would be wonderful for her up and coming 'mini - moon' in June and honeymoon later in the summer. Mini - moon ?! In my day it was just a honeymoon in the UK, only if you had the cash to splash did you - A. Have a honeymoon at all and B. Abroad lol !
    Anyway, she's not into craft, and I wouldn't know where to start lol, so any help virtual or in person would be out of this world, there are only 12mths in a year though chick lol and 1 of you.

    Have a brill day Nikki and all Nikkets. Enjoy whatever your day brings.

  19. Hi Nikki, I just love your album as I have just got into trying to make one I would definitely be interested in a kit with instructions. Will be watching this space.x
