This first collection is called Steampunk Debutante. I have seen this style before...it refers to a type of Victorian era Sci Fi, so I'm told. But, check out the gears and the dress forms and butterflies! Where is my Martha Stewart butterfly punch? I know it's here somewhere...and my Tim Holtz gears die....
This next line is called Halloween in Wonderland. I love creating Halloween layouts and mini albums, so I cannot WAIT to get my hands on this paper. I love vintage Halloween as it reminds me of a time when Halloween was just dress-up and fun and make-believe and everyone let their kids go Trick or Treating! It reminds me of looking through musty closets and attics searching for the best items to make that perfect costume! There was no "Halloween industry" or $60 action figure costumes! Ah, the good ole days!
And at last, the updated Christmas Past line! I love this line and and am so happy that G45 has added to it! I cannot wait to see the new papers and elements! Vintage Christmas is my all time favorite vintage style! My husband has a collection of vintage Santas, and I have to confess, I adore them. Again, it reminds me of a time of innocence and fun, when having a "good Christmas" had nothing to do with "shop 'til you drop."
If romantic vintage is more your style, join me on July 10th to make this romance inspired mini, using G45 Le' Romantique papers. Check details in my Current Classes tab or at Stamping Details, Poway, CA.
