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.
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!
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!
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
