“Honeysuckle & Roses ” is a scrap kit collaboration in both tagger and full size available at TKO Scraps. This entire collaboration has 468 elements, 3 Alpha’s, and 160 Papers. Tagger size is $3. Full size is $10 or free with an $8. This is one sweet deal the store is having and I would highly recommend taking advantage of it. Each designer’s portion is gorgeous! For this tutorial I’m using the portion of Linda‘s Dream Designs. You can visit her blog here. Thank you Linda for your beautiful portion of this collab!

This tutorial was written assuming you have a working knowledge of PSP.
