♥ New Kit Released - Vintage Chic ♥


It's time for another kit release!

This kit is called Vintage Chic and it's a collection
of really vintage style, faded beautiful colors,
such as pink green and beige shades.


The kit is perfect for vintage style, and
shabby chic projects, such as digital layouts,
hybrid cards, tags and mini albums.
The kit is yours for $3.99 and the best thing
is you can use it over and over and over again!

Here are some projects I made using Vintage Chic

Digital layouts made using only projects from
the Vintage Chic kit. The kit is really versatile
and you can use it for both vintage projects
but also get a more modern look like in this layout


Behind the scenes at London Tower Bridge,
the papers worked perfectly with the vintage feel
of the photos I've been waiting to scrap.


More London photos, these photos were taken at
the lovely British pub Colney Fox where we had
the most fantastically British dinner, fish and chips


In the kit you will also find this vintage gold frame,
it's perfect to use on your layouts but I also love
the idea of using it as a way to display photos
on your blog or maybe even print the photos with
the frame and use them for place cards with
the guests photos or don't you think it would
make a gorgeous wedding invite with the
happy couple in the frame?
And now let's talk about something that I love,
Hybrid projects! This kit was so much fun to print
out and the faded colors really worked well for printing.
Here are some of the projects I made.

This is the first page of a little mini book I'm working
on with photos from the summer of 2009.
A tutorial on how to make your own book is
coming up so please check back for that!


One of my CT girls, Stina had an idea about how
the Vintage Chic kit reminded her of shabby chic
Christmas decorations and that got me thinking.
I came up with this little Christmas tag.
I'm going to punch a hole at the top of the heart,
add a string and tie it to a Christmas gift.


And another little tag made using the lace, denim
bingo flower :) I added some lace on top of the halfpearl
and added another printed halfpearl on top of that.
To get some dimension I added a 3D square.


And some projects from my lovely CT CutiePie Monica.

Her vintage style works perfectly with the Vintage Chic
kit. Just look at this gorgeous hybrid card she made!
I just love everything about it!

To make your tickets more personal use the edge of your
scissors to distress the edges and for an aged look use a
bit of fluid chalk around the edges.
