We are so excited for this month's kit! You might know how I have an obsession with ribbon and trims and this kit is packed with some of my favorites. From sequins to fringe, to lace and more, this kit is packed with some of the best fancy and designer trims I could find in the fashion district in LA as well as from CHA vendors.

 Oct 2014 Bootiful Kit - Guest Designer Melissa Johnson for Jennifer Priest  

I totally had a chuckle when this month's guest designer, Melissa Johnson, made a comment about the number of trims in the Bootfiul kit, Go big or go home, right?

Above are a couple more samples from Melissa featuring this month's kit. I love this fun canvas she made with collaged houses and how  she edged the canvas with some gorgeous loop fringe trim. Everything she used is included in the kit except decoupage medium, a canvas base, paint/ink, and stamps.

And just because we call it an October kit doesn't mean that you have to make Halloween things with it! I love this great idea from Melissa to create a totally dolled up photo frame with all those trims and pretty beads from the kit:

Marry that to an entrepreneurial spirit & at 9 years old a girl is selling her wares at craft fairs as far as her parents and grandparents would drive her. These days, Jennifer enjoys crafts of all genres from sewing to scrapbooking to jewelry with a little dabbling in the mixed media world. Her style is approachable and she wants everyone who sees her work to feel that they too can embrace creativity and make their home and life beautiful.
