Friends for Life Kit by Renee Aslette

Well how exciting is this, not only do we have a brand new kit released today, but I also get the pleasure of announcing the fabulous designer for the main project of this kit!  I have been lucky enough to have Renee Aslette design this layout, for you all to learn a little more about how she gets the lovely texture and interest in her work.

Renee currently designs for Unity Stamp Co, and has also previously designed for Scrap the Boys challenge site, Guest designing over at Lime Tart and also Helmar which is where I got the pleasure of falling in love with her work.  She has been published in various Scrapbooking Magazines and has had numerous achievements in on-line challenges.

In this kit she will show you how to create texture with an everyday item as well as use sprays in various ways.  Again there will be additional projects included with the kit that you can work through at your own leisure as well.  The additional projects are Two additional layouts that can be completed with the contents of the kit (designed by Beck Beattie), which just shows you how much is included in these kits!  Again you will still have some product left over that you can use on future projects to come as well.

If you have not yet tried our kits, now is the time with this beautiful kit designed by Renee.  If you would like to see more of Renee's work, please head on over to her blog : Anything is Possible

The price of the 'Friends for LIFE' kit is $39 + postage.  Please e-mail me at: with your address for postage to be calculated and your invoice to be sent.

For those wishing to join our 'kit club' where you will have an additional free product thrown in and 5% of each kit, please e-mail me with this request.  Payment is 3 months up front for monthly release of premium kits paid by the 15th day of the month prior to first kit commencement.

We hope you like our latest Premium kit and enjoy learning at your own pace with video and written instructions at hand.

We have released this kit a little early so our next premium kit will be released at the start of April.  This will also make room for some exciting mini kits to be released next.

Well I am very excited about the response I have received regarding my kits.  They have already nearly sold out and I hope everyone has as much enjoyment working their way through it as I have had creating it.

I thought I would share with you today some sneak peeks of the projects that you are able to create with the left over product in the kit!

These are 3 additional projects you will receive full pictures and tips for when you purchase the kit.  There is so much in this kit that you could easily make more as well.

I have also decided to sell the video for the main project which is included in the kit.  I know some people may already have the product on hand or live overseas and well postage would be more if they decided to purchase the whole kit.  Or you may simply like to purchase it to learn a new technique.

The video purchase includes, the videoed project, written instructions as well as pictures of the project both full and detail pictures.

Purchase price for the Video is $10 and postage is $2 to anywhere in Australia.  Overseas postage would need to be calculated upon contact.  Video will come in the form of a Disk.

Ever attended a class and everyone moves at such a quick pace that you don’t get a chance to experiment with the techniques to achieve the ultimate finished project. 

Or you realise half way through that you forgot your favourite pen or ink and no one in the class has it for you to borrow. 

Or alternatively if you are like me and have two very young kids, it is just plain hard to get out sometimes to the classes you want to attend on the days they are available, not to mention distance as well….

Well that is where my ‘Self pace’ kits come in!  You are provided with everything you need to create the finished project, including video (premier kits) and written step by step instructions.  Whilst the video is in a sped up mode, you can always pause to complete each step at your own pace!  Kits without video will include step by step pictures of techniques where needed as well.

At Scrappy Chat Designs we specialise in fun kits taking you out of your comfort zone creating with new or different techniques to individualise your papercrafting.   

Premier kits come complete with video and step by step written instructions included to complete the main project.  Included will also be pictures of additional projects you can complete with left over product from the kit.  Each kit will teach you a technique as well as provide you with tools such as screens, stamps, sprays (each kit will vary) that you can keep to individualise your future projects. 

Kits will generally be released monthly, however stay tuned for our next few kits to be uploaded as the finishing touches are added.  Kits are limited so when they are sold out there is generally no replacement. 

If there is ever a technique or product you would like to see included on an upcoming kit, please contact us at and we will endeavour to meet your request.

So it is VERY exciting for me to announce the first kit which is on sale NOW!
This kit is in my very own style, created for all my followers to learn a little more about how I create and share some of the techniques I used to create my projects.  

Kit includes:
  • Patterned papers by Fabscraps
  • Core-dinations cardstock
  • Prismatics Cardstock
  • The Crafter’s Workshop Reverse Chicken wire 12 x 12 Stencil
  • Die cut shapes

  • Chipboard alpha set
  • Clear texture stamp
  • Video instructions
  • Written instructions
  • Pictures for main project as well as an additional 3 projects you can complete with the contents of the kit

*Whilst every attempt is made to have the products exactly the same as the pictured projects, substitution may need to occur due to stocking issues from suppliers. 
**Assorted means exactly that and they will always have a little individuality to them often not exactly the same as the pictured project

Kit cost: $45 inc GST

However to celebrate our launch... purchases of this kit made until friday 15th February are 10% off 

This kit also included gesso as part of the project which may be in a great deal of people’s stash, therefore it was not included as part of the kit.  If you would like to purchase an amount of gesso to complete the projects, add $1 to the kit total for its inclusion. 

To purchase kits, e-mail:  requesting invoice with your mailing address for postage costs to be calculated. 

Stay tuned as the next kit is just around the corner!
