“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 Digicats (& Dogs). You can visit her blog here. Thank you Dianna for a beachy kit! Love it!
