My favorite thing about this collection has to be the color tones. They're beautiful.

I really like the vintagy feel of this collection. The diagonal stripe looks wonderful with that tag and banner! It seems strange that there are no alphas included, but it's still a very pretty set!

Renee said...

Ashley I love your cards! This collection was at the top of my list too! I usually gravitate towards the very traditional colors of red and green. I love the color combination and the ephemera! Thanks for a chance to win! Happy Holidays!

Love this collection, wish it was available near me, thanks for a chance to win it!

Beatrice Lawson said...

Stunning collection! Until I read your review I did not realize that there were no stamps... you are right, it would have been a great addition. I don't mind the lack of alpha stickers which are easier to colour, mist or die cut.

Shirley said...

I'm a fan of that vintage feel too!

Veronica said...

Beautiful! Would love to win!

I also like the vintage feel of this line. I also like the way you used some of the tags on your cards. I do like lines that seem to have items that help you make your cards or layouts.

Love the vintage feel of this and I love how you bundled things all up with twine - so fitting! This is my fave Xmas collection to date.

Melissa said...

Definitely my favorite Christmas collection of this year-I love it all.

Texas Cattlewoman said...

I have a few of the papers in my kit from Paper Bakery. Not really Christmas papers I'm drawn to as I love the traditional colors. Yet I love stepping out of my box to try something out of my comfort zone! I love your cards! Very inspiring!
