Retro Christmas 2017 Deluxe Creativity Kit and Projects

Standard

Hey there everyone! By ( very) popular demand I’ve added another Retro Christmas 2017Deluxe Creativity Kit to the shop. The first one sold out pretty quickly and sadly there was not enough to go around. I’m more than happy to oblige. This kit has new images and patterned papers from the previous kit and loads of fun embellies like jingle bells, twine, snowflakes, red tinsel trim, and pearly accents.

Here are the projects I created with the kit….

Retro Cherry Pie Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Well it’s no secret that I love all things retro and vintage. This card is created with fun and whimsical patterned papers and image paired with perfectly coordinating ribbons from RRR.

There is so much retro happening here!!!!! Aqua and red are a classic combination.

These ribbons are a match made in heaven for this iconic image.  A little tip when selecting sheer ribbon….this adorable ribbon with cherries was totally washed out when layered over the burlap so I just added it over a nice clean white so the cherries are crisp and really pop.

As with the ribbon…this focal image was a bit lost on the busy patterned papers so I just layered it over a doily die cut in white and now it’s really the star of the card.

Since I was on a roll with the cherries…I added it to the inside of the card as well.

Loads of pretty flowers, buttons, clips, pins and silver metal charms work so well with the theme so I added them all!!!!

Retro Christmas in July Deluxe Creativity Kit and Projects

Standard

HoHoHo Peeps! Yes I’m sharing more fun and festive Christmas in July projects. And this time a Creativity Kit. Because I am obsessed with kits. I just love to open the package and sort out all the fabulous paper pretties and embellies. Of course I took one for myself because I’m a cheeky little elf lol. See what I did there?  Okay too much holiday humor. I put myself in the mindset of CAS cards this time and didn’t go overboard with all the extras on the finished projects. In fact…this time I only added cardstock to what was already included in the kit. So you could make these cards too…just as they are shown. Quick to create and easy to mail. And I was able to get 10 A2 sized cards from this kit. Naturally I added paper doilies, colorful clips, star shaped sequins, twine , and flowers to the kit so you can play with them too.

Hey there Peeps! Well it’s my turn today to share the projects I created with the gorgeous flowers from Petaloo and the fun and festive patterned papers from Authentique.

I’m using Burlap Poinsettias  to accent the Classic Christmas for this very vintagy card.

The berries add a nice bit of sparkle and contrast nicely with the burlap and velvet leaves.

Tinsel trim and snowflakes are essential holiday embellishments and I’m using these items here to create a frame for the gorgeous Santa image. I added a bit of crackle medium to the image to make it look even more vintagy.

Glittery finished chipboard creates a lovely base for the sentiment block and is topped off with a tiny metal candy cane charm, twine, and clip.
