Scrapbook Sunday: Free Kit

I’m excited to say that I just published my first scrapbook kit! It’s vintage-y (big surprise there, huh?) and has a tatered and slightly blurred/faded look. It’s FREE, and available at ArtsCow. Get it FREE at ArtsCow. What do you think? It’s inspired by my great-grandma’s pinwheel quilt. I used faded colors and even patterns from the quilt. The papers are 1000 x 1000 pixels, so it’s best
