Our First Reveal and Blog Hop!



You may know Scraps of Darkness already ~ she is on the edgy and daring side and is always the "pushing the envelope" kit of diversity.
Now we would like to introduce you to her new sister --- "Scraps of Elegance" is the alter ego of her sister club. 
Her style is more on the sweet and romantic side... a true classic beauty!

Today is the reveal of our very first "Scraps of Elegance" kit!
VINTAGE ELEGANCE


We've carefully chosen these beautiful papers from Kaisercraft Sweet Nothings, Websters Pages Western Romance and Melissa Frances 5th Avenue Collection. We have also added some wonderful embellishments and unique vintage itemsfor you to create something beautiful to compliment your most treasured photos. 
You can see the full list of kit ingredients on our website: 
We are proud and honored to introduce one of the most coveted designers in the industry helping us show off our new line of kits.

February Guest Designer

We know how much you look forward to the sketches our ever talented artist Suepup creates each month for Scraps of Darkness.
We are excited to announce she will be designing the sketches for each Scraps of Elegance kit as well!  Now we are sure you don't want to just hear about her sketches, so we are pleased to share this month's inspirational sketch with you.

I'm so impressed by the talent available to me as a new Scraps of Darkness/Elegance follower. Clearly, I have much to learn, but many talented masters to learn from. Thanks for the opportunity to explore these blogs.
