I wanted this collection from the first day I saw it previewed on Crate Paper's Blog! I was so, so happy to get it and create with it! The whole collection has an awesome vintage flair. Crate Paper included so much detail in this collection, in everything from the papers to the stickers and die-cuts.
The collection has a a few pinks/florals, so it is perfect for girl-themed pages. But it also has many papers that showcase browns, aquas, yellows, and a beautiful chartreuse green, which make it great for boy-themed pages as well as everyday scrapping. There are also really fun and fresh patterns such as distressed playing cards, dominoes, and polka dots. This makes it so versatile, and in my opinion, this collection can be used for just about any theme.
I HIGHLY recommend this gorgeous collection!
I got some of the Restoration papers from a grab bag at a crop and was awed. THEN I got them in a kit club I used to belong to. Then I saw them on sale at a scrapbook store. I just love them and they are so versatile. Even though I have 3 boys, 2 of which are teens, I have still found uses for them on LOs.
Not that fond of the stickers (stickers are just not my thing) so I gave them to a friend. Don't get me wrong, the stickers are wonderful if you are in to that sort of thing, bot other than that, everything in this collection is awesome
Having just completed an heirloom recipe album using this paper line I can honestly say I love it! The patterns and colors coordinate and provide a welcomed flow to the album. The Parisian chic look is very cool and fun. EVERY woman in our family, young and older alike, who has seen the album wants one just like it. Here's a link to my album if interested:
This Restoration Collection kit is gorgeous - the colors are sophisticated yet perfect for shabby chic creations. I love the borders and the die cuts that are included as well - the vintage themes with the great pops of color make coming up with unique and interesting color combos and projects very easy. I will use every last scrap.
I like this set of 12x12 papers very much. Nice colors and
designs. I wish they would sell individual sheets of the
12x12 cardstock-sticker sheet, however, as you will really
want more than one of some of the images on this page.
Though the sheets were available individually or in this pack,
the sticker sheet was not.
