Learn Calligraphy While You Create

Elegant New Kit

Do you feel like it’s too difficult to learn calligraphy?  Stampin’ Up! may have the answer.  Each year they take great care in creating their project kits throughout the year.  Today I would like to introduce you to the Calligraphy Essentials Project Kit.  It has such soft colors and designs.  I have to admit, I love calligraphy so I was so excited when I saw this particular kit in the new annual catalog.  There is a coordinating stamp set, but more on that later.

Learn Calligraphy

Each kit is always unique and this one is no different.  Create beautiful hand-lettered cards while you learn calligraphy.  The kit makes 16 cards, 4 each of 4 designs.  It includes printed card bases and printed envelopes (which is my favorite thing about the kits).  You get 8 sheets of  labels, calligraphy practice sheets and adhesive-backed sequins.  Everything you need tucked all in one package.  The colors coordinate with some of your favorites and even some new colors – Coastal Cabana, Grapefruit Grove, Lovely Lipstick, Pear Pizzazz.  In addition to the Essentials Kit,  you can purchase the Calligraphy Essentials Clear-Mount Stamp Set (seen above) that coordinates with the kit.  Also, together they make the complete Calligraphy Essentials collection.

If you are like me, you want to see it in action.  Well I can help with that too.  Take a look at the video Stampin’ Up! put together which let’s you see the kit up close.  In addition, you can follow Shannon as she uses the products and helps guide you on how to use them.

When you are done practicing with the kit, you will be able to create beautiful calligraphy of your own.  Finally, you can be proud when you finish all the practices sheets.  Maybe even feel like a calligraphy expert.  LOL
