Heartstring Designs January Kit: Vintage Wonder

Hello! And welcome to the first FABULOUS Heartstring Designs’ Housecall Kit reveal of 2013!!!

Take a look at Vintage Wonder:

This kit is simply AWESOME! I know, because I have been creating with it for DAYS and I just LOVE it.  The kit includes cardstock, 2 cardbases with envelopes, patterned paper, twine, banners, embellishments, letters, and LOTS more!  This month’s kit features the following brands:

American Crafts

Crate Paper

Studio Calico

Jillibean Soup

3 Girl Jam

Elle's Studio


Whew! With that let us have a little inspiration, shall we?


There are two 5x7 card bases and envelopes included in this kit and I found that they were a great starting point.  (Confession: sometimes I have trouble cutting into new paper, eek!!).


Now, something that wasn’t included in this kit this time – stamps.  The above sentiment is a stamp from SP and Company and ink from Studio G by Hampton Art.


Feeling inspired yet?  Well, maybe you’re more of a layout crafter and not a card crafter…GREAT!! You have supplies to do many layouts just like these:


I used some circle punches to create the border on the right and a little journaling stamp to put lines in the journal spot.


I am so in love with this page and this picture of my niece and nephew.  I used a sketch from the Silhouette blog and all the shapes are either cut from my circuit (Plantin Schoolbook and Tie the Knot), fussy cut, or punched using Fiskars squeeze punches.


Finally, here’s a little sneak of what is to come tomorrow:


Cute, right? This kit also includes an Amy Tangerine Day book!  I’m so excited to show you what I created with it!!


Now, since I KNOW you are just itching to get your hands on this kit and craft some masterpieces of your own, I want to direct you to the subscription page HERE!

Remember, kits are made in limited supply, so once they are gone, they’re gone! The only way to secure your kit every month is to subscribe! (You’ll want to anyway because future kits will be so fab!)

    Oddly enough, for a girl who things more is more I love the simple layout with the deer the best. It is just so clean and beautiful and you really focus on the photo. Nice job.

  18. case anyone is wondering why all my comments LOOk like they come from only myself: I accidentally deleted the post and, in turn, deleted the comments. BUT, lucky for me, I had opened the comments in another tab and just re-published them myself in the correct order after I finished reposting. *facepalm*
