Dixie Pieces September kit Vintage Treasures

LOOK at this kit...I mean really LOOK at this kit...WOWZERS!!! All this for $28!!!

Here is the mini-album I did with the Bo-Bunny album add-on:

I created this card....I covered two of the puzzle pieces with the pattern paper:

I created this card using a piece of the yummy pattern paper as the base...adding a tag to the front; some brads for accents...the letters for the title!

For this card I cut thin strips of blue cardstock and glued them at the center to form a flower. I then trimmed some of the pattern paper following the diamond pattern for interest. I adhered them both to some white cardstock that was placed on the blue cardstock as a base.

I created this layout using a large photo and then added irregular sized paper scraps along the border. The title is the yummy Cosmo Cricket chipboard letters!! I added the lace and stamped the date onto the 7 gypsies twill tab.

I created a photo grouping on cardstock first for this layout. I then added bits and pieces from the kit; including some butterflies I punched out of the cardstock. The buttons were from my stash...everything else is in the kit!

I created this vintage feel layout by first using some paper dolies from my stash to sponge some texture onto the cardstock. Once I had that just as I wanted it I layered some pattern paper to the center of the two page spread, adding the title with a combination of the Cosmo Cricket letters and letters cut using my Cricut machine. The butterflies were cut by hand and one was embossed using a cuttlebug embossing folder for even more definition. There is journaling hidden inside a pocket I created behind the ATC card on the right page.

This is an amazing kit...there is so much in it... great vintage feel that would work well for just about any photos you have... come over to the Dixie Pieces site to get yours!
