Betsy has put a kit together that is timeless and beautiful and artistic all at the same time.

SO much fun to play around with, whether you want to use them as is or get more artistic with the paints and different paper mediums in the kit that will go so well with the other ingredients she has mixed in! It's a recipe for creativity, most definitely!! You will fall in love with it, as I have!"
