Blog Giveaway for New Retro Kitchen Kit, Kitchen Memories Kit, Kitchen Queen and Vintage Kitchen Digital Stamp Sets!

Hi Everyone, 

Our New Kitchen Kits and Digital Stamp Sets were finally uploaded to our store and to celebrate I'm doing 2 Giveaways you can enter to win either the Retro Kitchen Kit Download and Kitchen Queen Digital Stamps, or our Kitchen Memories Kit and Vintage Kitchen Digital Stamp Set.  Just leave a comment here on this blog post and tell me which you like best?  The 2 winners will be announced next Friday, Nov 7/14 but do come to our Christmas Linky Party this Monday Nov 3/14.


  Look at this cute pot holder card that DT Member Diane Hoover made stitching on the cherry paper from our Retro Kitchen Kit and the images she used are from our Kitchen Time Cuts which are so perfect for this Kit I had to include them. The apron is from our Kitchen Classic Digital Stamp Set which is also included on the bonus CD in our Kitchen Sale Blowout Pack for $19.95 plus $4.95 shipping.

The Retro Kitchen Kit is full of fun retro style kitchen papers and all sorts of fabulous kitchy images perfect for creating recipe albums, cute greeting cards, scrapbook pages and kitchen decor. Includes 34 designer papers, 4 recipe cards, 3 tab dividers, recipe book cover, a sheet of blank labels, a sheet of color kitchen labels, our Kitchen Time Cuts sheet, plus a folder with 46 wonderful retro images saved as PNG files!



There are also 46 separate PNG files with the designs all cut out.  
I adore the cheerful colors and cute images in this kit.

The strawberries are big,like up to 6" but you can re-size them. Hey, is it just me or does anyone else like the cute faces on these fruit and veggie guys? I love how Cindy our graphic designer colored them. We also included them as black/white stamps in our Kitchen Queen Stamps. There are 4 faux embossed white doilies included and a bunch of word art.


 Here's our Kitchen Queen Digital Stamp Set packed full of 61 fun retro black and white cooking images and framed sentiments perfect for creating cards, decorating recipes books, scrapbook pages and all sorts of 'kitchey' projects.  The digital stamps are high quality 300 dpi/ppi PNG files which can be used just like a jpg image but if you have a tiny bit of digital knowledge you can color, re-size, flip and layer the designs


There are some really cool large size images on these sets like the plate and cutlery, appliances, and utensils!  We never could have made clear stamps as large as some of these images that would have stamped properly or been economical - but these are all re-sizeable so you can print a mini border of cutlery or large wall art for your kitchen!



I have to admit, I love the Retro stuff but I think my heart has to side with the older images in this Kitchen Memories Kit. I love the way the colors turned out, all warm and homey and I really like the papers with the text and hand written recipes.  The recipes were written by Vicki Chrisman's mom Evelyn who has sadly passed now but Vicki and her sisters still regularly use their mom's recipes. I love the idea that people will use these kits to create recipe albums, food tags, layouts and kitchen crafts that celebrate cooking, sharing food, recipes and kitchen memories!


DT Leader Kathy Clement created this pretty kitchen card using different papers and ephemera images from the Kitchen Memories Kit. The lady sitting is a digital stamp from the Vintage Kitchen Stamp Set which goes great with this kit. The greeting is from our Card Sentiments set. If you click on the sample you can see how she printed one of the faux 'embossed' doily designs to make the teabag holder pocket inside the card and yes- the doilies really do look embossed!
Here's the papers included, as well as 2 printable sheets of images, recipe cards, 3 index tab dividers, recipe cover, note paper, invitation and you can see the rest of the papers, seasonal menus and the PNG files below.



There are 49 fabulous PNG files included in the kit and a PNG can be printed just like a jpg image and it will have white around it - but the images are actually cut out so you can layer them over each other and onto colored paper. We have a bunch of digital tutorials on Pintrest, many by our digital expert DT Member Sheila Rumney.


The vegetables are big and the colors are beautiful!


Here's our Vintage Kitchen Digital Stamp Set which has 65 really cool detailed designs with all sorts of food items and old kitchen ephemera. I've been trying to master Photoshop and I actually created a bunch of the lettering on this stamp set set including all these below, except for the canisters. Plus some of the lettering on the old bottles and cans wasn't great so I had fun re-doing all or parts of the angel spice, butter, canned peaches, pasta sauce, vegetable cookbook, grocery sign and weigh scale. I love old packaging!


Look at the old fridges, stoves, hoosier cupboard and utensils!


Remember if you don't do digital all our printed stock and remaining Clear Art Stamps are on sale 50% off or more and we have been busy making up more of the 70% Off or more SALE PACK Blowouts. With 7 themes to choose from they are our best deal for $19.95 plus $4.95 shipping and include:  ChristmasHalloween/FallSummer/NatureCooking/HomeBaby/Little Boy, Baby/Little GirlFairy Whimsical,  and Girlfriends.

Reminder -  Our Christmas Linky Party is this Monday Nov 3/14 and I'm going to have a great free gift for all the participants, plus 1 random.org winner will receive a $40.00 gift card (it just can't be used on our Sale Packs that are 70% off already).

Be sure to leave a comment to be entered into the draw and 2 lucky random.org winners will be announced next Friday.

Wishing you joy and creativity

I love them both, but I think for me and what I need for my scrapbooks I'm making for my Mom and her sisters I would say the Vintage set. I recognize so many of the things in the set from their old stories.

Cynthia said...

It's a really tough call, but I am leaning toward the Retro Kitchen kit and Kitchen Queen stamp set. Another great release, Sandy!

Jennifer Scull said...

wow, it's almost impossible to choose one over the other because I need them both! guess I would get the Kitchen Memories kit with Vintage Kitchen digi stamps first though. what fab papers and images!

Barbara Johnston said...

It's a toss-up but i think the vintage set has a slight edge for me

Dee said...

Always beautiful and so hard to choose! Vintage keeps making me go back and look at it so Vintage it is! :)

Linda Peterson said...

How perfect to use in a cookbook scrapbook!!

KT Fit Kitty said...

Well how can I choose! I love, love, love all these new sets, Sandy! So happy and excited to receive the Kitchen Queen and Retro Kitchen sets for participating in the last challenge! For anyone who doesn't have these sets - you need them! So head to the shop right away! So many wonderful elements - I can't say enough about them!

Sandy, thank you for putting together such amazing sets - they are fabulous! These are sure to be favourites with everyone!

#!PinkLady said...

WOW, I love love love all the sets. But I would have to say out of all the sets that my favorite is Vintage Kitchen Digital Stamp Set.Great job on all the sets. Thank you for the chance to win.

sanchris said...

All of the sets are wonderful, but the retro is my favorite. While I was growing up my mom had dishtowels embroidered with the faces on the fruits, so seeing them brought back wonderful memories--and the cute little bee(even though, I hate bees)made the decision for my favorite easy.

Mary said...

Both of these sets are gorgeous, they remind me of both my Mom and Grandma, but I would have to pick the Retro Kitchen Kit. This would be beautiful to use making a mini album recipe book with all of my mom and grandma's recipes!!

mbmdesignbritt@comcast.net said...

Love the Vintage set the best!
Thanks for a chance to win!

cjgusloff57 said...

I like both sets very much, but if I have to pick one, I will go with the Retro Kitchen set. I have some retro kitchen items in my kitchen now and they remind me of my Mom's kitchen when I was a little girl.

Sue Kosec said...

My sister and I still use some of our (late) mom's and grandmother's recipes. One of these days we're going to do a mini album to encompass all the delicious recipes. Winning sure would help. I love both but I'm going to go with VINTAGE. Thanks for the chance.

Sandy McClay said...

I have always loved your retro and vintage kitchen goodies....both of these kits are just wonderful! I think the retro one wins out though...reminds me of my Mom....always a good memory.
Thanks for a chance to win this set!

Cindy said...

I love them both but the Retro Kitchen set would be awesome with the scrapbook I'm working on!

Char- The Mad Shopper said...

I like the Retro Kitchen set the best. It is full of goodies that I would use the most.

Kim Campbell said...

They are both adorable but I love the Retro Kitchen the best.

LindaS said...

Wonderful work so it's difficult to choose but the images in the Retro Kitchen will fit the cookbook I'm working on.

Linda Carson said...

I really like the Retro!

bsaccardo said...

Love them both but I reLly love the retro set.

usagypsy said...

Ohhh the retro set please! Several years ago I put together a little recipe book with family recipes for my daughter. I think it was before the vintage look got so popular because I had a hard time finding cute graphics. Now look at all the cuteness! Maybe I should make one for my son too so I can use all this vintage goodness!

Montana Nana Paints said...

Tough call...all the sets are so wonderful...but I think I must go with Retro Kitchen and Kitchen Memories. This was really a hard one! Usually my taste is very set, but these are all so wonderful. Happy November!!

Donna said...

I like them both very much, but I'd have to go with the Kitchen Memories. I think it is super special that Vicki's mom's recipes are used in this kit! How touching! Great work on all the new digital goodies!!

Cammie said...

Sandy, obviously much work has gone into these new fabulous kits and stamps. The Retro Kitchen Kit is definitely calling to me!
I'm looking forward to the next Linky Party.

KAM in CA said...

I too love them both but prefer the Vintage Kitchen style. The collection is so charming - would love to use in recipe books!

BethW said...

Since I have reached "vintage" myself, I'll pick the vintage set. ?Both of them are fabulous-of course.

Sarah said...

I feel the need to make another recipe album and the Memories and Vintage offerings fit the bill exactly. Another winning design kit, Sandy!

Anonymous said...

Love, love, love the retro kitchen set, however they are both very sweet and so remind me of times spent with my Grandmother Pearl in her kitchen. Happy Holidays to Sandy and everyone on this blog. :)

It's a hard choice, but the Vintage Kitchen is my pick.

BurningRubber said...

Sharon Tipping said...

Love the colors on the retro set'

stellarstamper said...

Cheerful Retro is cute, but I love vintage designs much better. They are timeless and so versatile!

Scrap for Joy said...

The Retro Kitchen set and Kitchen Queen digital stamps are exactly what have been looking for to do family recipe albums for my daughter and daughter-in-laws. So cute!!!
Joyce

Nicole Henke said...

wow- they are both great sets and I'm torn between them both...probably go with Vintage is pressed! Thx for the giveaway!

Artsywhim said...

Seeing all the retro kitchen images takes me back to a house I lived in back in the 1960's. It's not easy to find retro kitchens anywhere anymore, so looking at these images really takes me back!

Randellyn said...

I really like both sets, but my favorite is the Kitchen Memories/Vintage Kitchen set. All great sets...would match my vintage kitchen decor too!

Susan Lechman said...

I love them both, but the retro is something that I would love to create with

Unknown said...

I looked over all the pictures and it is so difficult to decide. If I had my choice, I would pick them all but the retro kitchen takes me back to my childhood memories of my aunt's 1930's stove, green with the oven on the side the same height as the burners. The kitchens that were displayed on old Lassie shows, the Waltons, Donna Reed Show, Father Knows Best, Leave it to Beaver and in the magazines of the day
hearken back to when life was truly simpler for me as a child.

Kathy Raney said...

Absolutely a difficult choice, but I have to go with the vintage kitchen stamp set. This is a new site for me and I love it.

Marlee Dickerson said...

I love the retro digital kitchen...so cute!

Hopeful PJ said...

I love vintage it's in my heart, make s me gush. I enjoy colouring my own stamps, makes my creative side come alive.

Rain said...

Both are adorable! Can I like both? I guess the vintage might be a little more my style.

Kelly Crowl said...

adorable sets, both of them...I so love the way the vintage look is always "in!" whether its for cards, scrap booking or whatever....I adore the styles you offer!

Anonymous said...

I'm probabaly too late to win anything, but I love all of your retro products and the kitchen set I'll definitely be ordering.

Freelance Jobs From Home said...
