Welcome to my stop on the Pixel Scrapper September 2018 “Cozy Kitchen” blog train! The previews I’ve seen of the blog train look great, we’re all going to have plenty of material to scrap our food and cooking stories for a long time to come. I’ve made a minikit for you today, as well as a coordinating bundle available on Pixel Scrapper. I just loved these colors, they were so delightful to design with!
Those Retro Kitchen journal cards and paper packs are still one my most downloaded freebies. The rounded corners on the cards look dated to me now and I’m not sure how useful they’d be for modern scrapping, so I’ve wanted to do a square-corner update for a while (you can always make square JC corners round by clipping to a template, but you can’t add back square corners to round cards!).
As tends to happen when I fall in love with a color palette, and as tends to happen even more when we’re throwing anything vintage or shabby or retro into the mix, designs just started fountaining out of me! What started as a little update turned into a full-blown bundle, referencing most of those journal cards and papers from the original but then adding more papers, more cards, and, now that I actually scrap traditional layouts as well as pocket pages, a ton of elements and word art for scrapping any sort of page. I ended up deciding to offer a minikit for the blog train, with a little bit of everything.
Blog train freebie links only stay up for the month of the blog train (though you can still find older blog train goodies if you explore the blog). My Cozy Kitchen Minikit is no longer available here on the blog – you can now find it at Pixel Scrapper.
I think the minikit stands alone beautifully (seriously how yummy are these colors??) and it also serves as part of a larger bundle stuffed to the gills with pocket cards and fun kitchen-related elements and word art. I’m a little in love with the cozy little oven mitts, aren’t they sweet? The bundle includes the mini, a full traditional scrapbooking kit with papers and elements, a big pack of shabby patterned papers (I love having lots of extra papers to play with), and several packs of journal cards. There are journal cards in both white and kraft, and both go beautifully with the kit colors.
And here’s a bit of inspiration from my fantastic creative team!
