More CD 2 Sample Peeks, Sale Details & Vintage Printable

Hi Everyone,

I’m back with fabulous new samples from CD 2, Creating With Vintage Illustrations, also details on our Sale starting on Black Friday Nov 25, and a previous Thanksgiving Past Printable  if you want to make place cards for the table, a quick card, mount it on a stick for a plant pick or use 2 double sided in a centerpiece.


 Here is the Discount Pricing on other items besides our Clear Art Stamps.  If you missed my explanation and discount pricing on the stamps you can read it all HERE.   Sale start this Friday, Nov 25 until supplies last.  To get good pricing I have to print in large quantities and usually get between 3500 to 5000 of each item and re-prints are faster on some,  so quantities vary - but this sale should last for awhile!   The only 2 items NOT going on sale are our CD's and Creative Scraps.  Some items are marked down less than others.  Wholesale half price to stores.

 Vintage Cuts in 12 styles, reg $1.99, will be $1.75

Vintage Cardstock Stickers in 29 themes, reg $2.35, will be $1.99
 Vintage Image & Journal Notes in 9 Booklets, reg $6.75, will be $5.75

Homespun Cotton Scraps only 5 themes left, reg $5.75, will be $3.99

Vintage Postcard Kits in 8 themes, reg $12.95, will be $11.95

This is one of 8 sample preview sheets showing some of the 12 x 12" jpg files. You can size them to fit on 8.5 x 11"papers and print on various mediums. Hopefully it will get larger when you click it on

Here is another sample preview sheet on the CD but this one is showing some of the png files. The png files mean that they are cut out around the edges, in the center of frames etc, so they work great to easily layer embellishments, lay frames over photos, etc. If you don't do any digital you can still print images and use them.

 You can see 2 fun samples using the French jointed doll on CD 2 HERE on DT leader Vicki Chrisman’s Blogs and also HERE on DT member Julie Campbell’s Blog.

Creating with Vintage Illustrations

DT Member Pam Hooten created a couple of great samples, doing one in a stylish sewing theme tag by shrinking  this 12 x 12" paper and another 12 x 12 " with a sewing quote. 

Pam also used a Tim Holtz Dress Form before she saw these 2 cute last minute Dress Templates  that will be on the CD. They will be fun to dress up with pattern papers, ribbon belts and jewel buckles. Plus, they will fit in with the shoe and purse templates!

Here is the Teacup Template Pam used and we included a small sample of each project on each of the 14 templates on the CD for handy reference, so Pam's will be on the sheet.

Creating with Vintage Illustrations

DT Member Heidi Blankenship used this image on the CD to create a stunning card you have to see HERE on her Blog.  She says she was inspired to try Linda Dukes tip for using baby oil with her Prisma color pencils and you will see it looks like it worked great!

Creating with Vintage Illustrations

This is Linda's 2nd video tutorial this week showing how she created the pretty roses (Spellbinder's) The card was already colored but I love the 3D silver embossed edge she shows how to do.  Here's a link to Linda's other video.

 You can see 2 digital layouts DT member Amy Teets created HERE on her blog with papers and embellishments from the CD including this page below and a Christmas LO.


Here's a pretty Christmas card DT Member Jan Hennings created by shrinking an image on the CD and using 1 of the papers. She added a Tattered Angels Frame she covered with glitter snow

DT Member Tammy Roberts made this pretty standing teapot card pictured small on the template sheet below. You can see it better HERE on her blog and see how she cut butterflies from one of the papers on the CD and added them.

DT Member Victoria Warren-Mears created this adorable digital layout using one of the papers, a frame, tree. border,birdie journal card, eggs and a button off the CD.  Victoria's beach layout is also featured as a sample on the CD.

 OUR  BIG SALE STARTS THIS FRIDAY.  CD 2 Creating With Vintage Illustrations arrives this Friday as well but if you pre-order it we will include a free Image Booklet with every CD 2 order until midnight Friday.

Wishing you joy & creativity

Have you thought of doing these images and/or collections as digital downloads? I would love to be able to shop like that from your site and have the immediate gratification of getting an image minutes after I purchase it.
