It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Well it's not snowing here but the tree is up and I turned the fire place on tonight for the first time since last winter. I was reading when I got an idea. If you know me well you know I love to put kits together. I love a good kit as much as the next person but I really really enjoy putting them together with some amazing vintage finds. So I went down to my scrap room and started pulling out all my Christmas Vintage items an some new things I found at the Vintage shop down the road. After about 30 min or so I had put together a mini kit.

I would love to know what you think of my mini "Vintage Christmas" kit so with that being said. Leave me a comment from now until this Friday at midnight and I will draw one lucky person to win this kit.

This kit is full of Vintage items that date back to the 1920's. The textile fabric strips that are in this kit is from a vintage sample book. I cut them down to 6x1 inch strips which will be perfect for Christmas Cards and any layout.

Here’s what’s included in this your kit:
  • 4 6x6 pattern papers from Melissa Frances
  • 2 Vintage Office Telegram sheets (1940's)
  • 1 vintage ledger paper(dated 1923 from a barber's ledger)
  • 2 vintage receipt (from 2 different receipt books)
  • 6 vintage buttons
  • 1 vintage Christmas card front (card will be different in each kit)
  • 3 vintage Christmas Coasters
  • 4 vintage 6x1 fabric textile strips
  • 1 12" vintage cream lace
  • 1 12" vintage cream and red ribbon
  • 1 12" ornament ribbon
  • 1 Victorian shoe paper embellishment
  • 3 cream and green flower embellishments
You can find this kit in my Etsy shop with more photos of the kit. I will be putting up a few samples with this kit tomorrow after I get photos. I have a lot of photos of projects to take and there is suppose to be NO rain tomorrow.

Thanks in advance.

Pin It!
