CS Kitchen Memories02Crafty Secrets Kitchen Memories New Digital Kit

Hello, Friends!  I’m popping in real quick today to share a card that I just made with the new Crafty Secrets Kitchen Memories Digital kit.  If you love vintage kitchen images and ephemera, you are going to want to get this kit!  Sandy will be loading it into the Crafty Secrets online store any day now, so you’ll want to keep your eyes open.

CS Kitchen MemoriesThis 5″ x 7″ side fold card uses digital papers, stamps, images and ephemera from the kit.  I just love this lady who is taking a break from cooking to read a book.  When I was a young mom, I used to prop my books up on the window sill above my kitchen sink so I could read while I was doing dishes.  I had so little time to read that I grabbed the opportunity any way I could!  She reminds me of that!

CS Kitchen Memories02I colored the image and then fussy cut it, mounting it on on another sheet of vintage paper from the pack.  There is a huge selection of papers in this kit! The micro red gingham ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon was the obvious choice for this card.

CS Kitchen Memories01I added UTEE to my sentiment heart, giving it the appearance of an epoxy embellishment.  And, I love the little cookbook.  I fussy cut it from the ephemera sheet, inked the edges and then folded in half along the crease line.  Then I rolled it over the edge of a pencil to round the pages and make it look dimensional.  I glued around the edges, and down the center crease line on the back, then kind of pushed the edges toward the center as I was gluing it down to make it look like  a real open book.  The doily you see here is also from the collection, and there are several more.  They look really dimensional, especially when you pierce the openings as I did here.  And wait til you see how I used the other half of this doily inside the card.

CS Kitchen Memories04I inked the edges, stamped it with a sentiment from Grand Greetings and then glued the sides down, forming a pocket for my tea bag.  Fun, right? And, if you are looking for a fabulous deal on more kitchen crafting goodies, be sure to check out the Cooking and Family Blowout Sale Pack!  Sandy has a limited number of these kits for purchase, as she is closing her US warehouse and going completely digital.  Here’s what you get in this phenomenal kit:

I hope you like what you see in my  Crafty Secrets Kitchen Memories card sample.  I’m in love with the collection and can’t wait to play more with it.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Good afternoon, Kitty, WOW! this is an awesome vintage image. I honestly can’t image do working in heels. OH! my feet, but wedge shoes were popular, and does help with back discomfort. ..I love the look of a homemaker, actively using her cook-book, I am nut with cook books and love them too. the older recipes take some time but worth the work. memories in them all. an this creation reminds me of memories……Love it.

    Judy, I totally understand! I was afraid of working with digital images, too. But it is really simple, and there are lots of FREE programs to help you use it. PicMonkey is a new one that is simple to use, free and you can find loads of tutorials online. You can also just right click on the images and copy/past into Microsoft Word. It doesn’t have to be a complicated process to use them. The more I use them, the more I love them! I hope you’ll give it a try!

    Very cute. I love vintage looks but have never tried digital scrapbooking before so I am a little hesitant to try it.
