110114 CKC November Kit Reveal

Look at this lovely from Scrapbook & Cards Today
Crop & Create Delivered kit, "Fabulous Fall".

Be sure & give a warm welcome to our Guest Designer, Binty!

I have been a little sad & missing a vintage vibe in my kits. Although I have 
turned this one on its head this month it was within the bounds of the inspiration.

Let's open up the Magic Blue Box...
 & have a look at 

As usual, I started with the papers:

First row: The yellow lace stands in for the yellow doilies. I discovered I have very 
few striped papers, so I have subbed in the roses (& later the rocket ships!) A softer red 
for the coral, a bird paper, an X paper for the + paper, and a gold vellum dot.

The second row: Large scale print, vibrant green, neutral, blue/green, the rockets, and blue damask.

Here's the full kit:

I've made a whole set of vintage PLstyle cards from free images from The Graphics Fairy.
Although I had some burlap alphas I opted for some linen look chip alphas, map & bright 
yellow scripty Thickers. A pack of Paper Studio assorted ribbon & tossed in some Prima 
flowers as they were just the right shades. Jenni Bowlin Flatback flair, 7 Gypsies tags, Anna 
Griffin transparencies, a couple of small crocheted doilies & an assortment of stick pins!

Here's a closer look:

I have finally decided I'm on board with a certain trend, so I've put together an add-on!

You'll be seeing more about the forgeries in here on the CKC tutorial post on the 4th.
