Timeless, Elegant Grunge!

Hi all

This past week we had a 4 Day Deal on Create and Craft TV from Serif and Graphic Authority. Unfortunately I wasn't able to be with you all at the beginning of the week but did my Ninja Demo'er trick on Thursday and guested for the last show. I absolutely LOVE the kits we had on:$s=serif
(exclusive to Create and Craft tv until the end of June 2014)
At this point I am calling not only all digi crafters to do yourselves a favour and grab these kits but also I am shouting out to all my other crafty friends .... even if you have never digi crafted or had any desire to, this is an ultimate collection to create your own papers to craft with however you want! And don't think of it as just the titles, yes the 8 Timeless kits have a heritage feel and The Edge Grunge and Elegant suit their names BUT think outside the box! Layered on different backgrounds and using different colours these kits can be any style you want! I think it is genius (while also feeling a little guilty about giving away trade secrets on how layers in papers are created especially when it is so easy at the touch of a button with CraftArtist 2 professional!)
You will need this software to access the digi kit contents but let me tell you it is soooo worth it! Overlays galore to create with; splats, creases, patterns, distressing, text, flourishes ...... and it goes on! Colour them, blend them, digi stamp them, make them metal .... your creative imagination is your own limit! 

I thought I would share some of my sample pics in this post and then I am planning to do a few tutorial posts soon to show you how easy it is to create unique, professional looking backgrounds with these kits ;)
These 3 projects are mainly created with The Edge Grunge digi kit .... with different colours and effects they all look so different!

These 3 projects are mainly created from the 4 Timeless 1 kits

While these 3 are created mainly using the 4 Timeless 2 kits ... look at the variation!
And finally these 3 projects are created mainly with The Edge Elegant kit

And these are pics of some of the other samples on the show created by the Serif DT a beautiful vintage feel to these!
There is hours of fun to be had with these kits and hundreds of bespoke backgrounds to create! I'll be back soon with some tutorials to help you on your way to creating and will be back sooner with some pics of my fabulous floral trip to Chatsworth :)
Thanks for popping by and I hope you're all well and happy! So until soon, as ever,
Happy Crafting!
