My Cherish the Memories clubs are creating pages from the beautiful Florentine paper kits for their classes in August. Here are the details in case you want to order your own kit and create these pages on your own.

Total: $23.85 (plus shipping/handling and Tax)

Now if you really want the most bang for your buck you will want to purchase the Deluxe kit which includes everything in the Basic kit PLUS:
• Florentine “C-Size” Stamp Set--$13.95
Sparkle Flourish--$4.95
Color Ready Binding Ribbon--$6.95
Total: $46.80 (savings of $3.00)
