It comes with everything pictured above. I also used the following: 
 Archival Black Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad (Z3271)
Poppy Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad (Z2852)
Watercolor Paints (Z3132)
Paintbrush Set (Z3188)

This kit allows you to create 12 cards, 2 designs with 6 of each.



The instructions come with the kit, and explains how to cut the papers, and how to assemble the cards.  These kits make it so easy to have a great selection of cards for any occassion.

Introducing Central Park 1 Sheet Wonder, 20 Card Workshop

Central Park is finally ready and I'm so excited to be able to share it with you. This workshop like my others is a teaching workshop, utilizing a single sheet of pattern paper you are able to maximize it's use by learning how to cut the paper.

The great thing about this 20 card workshop is that you can break it down to teach a maximum of 4 people from 1 guide, they would each get to create 1 of each card. You could also work it to teach 2 people per guide for 10 cards each, 2 of each design, or the full guide per person, with 4 of each design for 20 cards.



Let's take a look of each of the designs more closely.

CARD 1
