Honey, I Shrunk the Kit!

Honey I Shrunk the Kit logo

Honey, I Shrunk the Kit! was an idea inspired by a beautiful concept called The 12 Kits of Occasions. I loved the idea that card-makers could take turns ‘shopping their stash’ to send a theme-based card kit to other card-makers, with a view to create a variety of different cards with the same material. In essence, HISTK is a shrunken version of The 12 Kits…, hence the name. More details can be found here.

Since its inception, our little hive of ‘Honeys’ have grown from three to six, namely:

Creator/ Coordinator: Hazel Hodgkins (Hazel’s Paper Designs)

Sarah Gray (Funky Fossil Designs)

Shona Chambers (Twine Around)
