Hot off the printing press!! (so to speak!) 2 groovy new Patterned Paper Kits for sale over at


I’ve been working on these new designs & having such fun, but it brings me even more joy to finally release them for you all to enjoy!  No flowers or swirls here, just funky, fresh strong patterns & fab colours.  Just the sort of patterned papers I can’t find out there, so if, like me,  you’re a frustrated child of the 70s, this is for you! 😉

Inspired by the iconic rounded square motif of the 70s era, you’re going to love these paper packs!

Here’s a preview image of the delicious ‘Chocolate Box Retro Paper Pack’:

& more closeups of some of the papers:


You’ll get 6 lovely PPs + a bonus set of retro squared journal spots.

The beauty of digital kits is that you can use them again & again, making them outstanding value for money!

I’ve used the free template I included in the kit to make this digital layout:

And I printed a couple of the Patterned Papers onto white textured cardstock & used them as traditional patterned papers to make these cards:

This kit is so much fun to use!  And so versatile – from male layouts, to funky pages to family heritage mini books, you’ll find so many ways to enjoy this kit!


What’s in it?

11 patterned papers, 1 transparent overlay, 4 ribbons, 2 rub-ons, a bonus template, & more!
