Hi creative friends,
I’m really excited to share my new kit with you.
I know I say that every month…. but I really am EXTRA excited this month!
That’s because I’ve spent the past month rediscovering and working on my creativity…. it’s no secret that it had slumped and I was feeling exhausted. I truly needed to breath again and work on being creative just for ME.
So that’s what I did and I immersed myself in a theme that truly speaks to my heart.
I adore the 1950’s with the twirling poodle skirts and frilly full petticoats…. the beat of rock’n’roll music…. and the fabulous cars of course.
With my craft room filled with the dulcet tones of Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry and many a star of the 50’s, I embraced this gorgeous era and set about painting what was in my heart.
It’s fun, bold and vibrant with a colour palette of bright pink, cherry and aqua.
What’s in the ‘Fabulously Retro’ kit
This kit includes:
- Over 100 individual graphics
- 18 papers; 6 decorative designs and 12 co ordinating craft papers in both full page and journal size
- 16 postcards
- 16 tags
- 8 tickets
- 4 signs
- 4 cards
- 3 bingo cards
- 7 pockets & 4 tabs
- 4 medium and 4 mini files
- 1 large envelope
Yes… I know, there’s a ridiculous amount in the kit… but I couldn’t stop…. and I couldn’t cull… it’s just a ‘fabulously’ overstuffed kit.
There are 36 pages of fussy cuts using over 100 graphics.
They are supplied to you in a ready to print PDF file.
You certainly don’t have to print every page. You can set your printer to just print those pages you wish to use.
There’s also 3 zip files of individual png graphics with transparent backgrounds.
You can use these in cutting machines like Silhouette and Cameo or you may like to create your own layouts with an editing program like Canva (free) or Photoshop.
Not all 100 graphics are in the zip files. That’s because ETSY only allow a small amount of data per listing, so I only put the more detailed and perhaps harder to fussy cut items in the zip files. You’ll find everything else in the fussy-cut printable PDF file.
I’ve had so much fun with the 50’s theme and the pop art style…. especially the retro chicks.
Who doesn’t love a speech bubble?
My friends and I have been enjoying them all week. They can certainly be funny, playful, snarky and even a little bit naughty.
After all…. it’s up to you what you write in them!!
As always, the kit also includes a co ordinating paper pack.
This kit has 18 papers in all; 12 co ordinating full page crafting papers and 6 decorative pages.
They are provided in two sizes; full page and journal (5″ x 7″) and are all in one printable PDF file. Simply print the pages you require.
How to buy the Fabulously Retro kit
This kit is available to buy now on Etsy.
I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed rediscovering my lost mojo this past month.
I loved the opportunity to work with acrylics again and even though it got really messy at times, it felt good to just create without a plan or expectation. Once I fell down the rabbit hole of retro there was no turning back.
I’ve also been sketching in my art journal and been working on ideas for future projects… and all these things give your creativity a real boost.
I look forward to sharing my retro projects with you this week…. including a free download and I’m sure the Design Team are busy creating wonderful inspiration to share with you too.
