New kit SERENDIPITY and a cluster frame freebie

Serendipity - noun. 1. an aptitude for making a fortunate discovery while looking for something unrelated by accident.  2. Ruby Lane's latest and greatest digital scrapping kit.

This kit embraces you.  It is as comforting as a warm blanket on a rainy winter day.  It is soft and feminine - without being girly - and dramatic at the same time.  The peaches and greens and soft yellows stand out against the blacks, grays and creams:


The elements are absolutely delightful - I just LOVE the soft peach bow, it immediately caught my attention.  There is a beautiful skinny branch with lots of small shoots that end in delicate swirls; there is another branch, full of leaves, with the most fantastic natural shape.  The flowers are soft and feminine:  three are made of fabric, and the paper tulip has a very delicate peach pattern.  There is also a dramatic black chipboard flower that makes a great accent!

Another of my favorite elements is a leather string with a bow - this is something you don't see a lot of in kits.  There are also two green ribbons, a yellow button with a ribbon tie, two patterned flairs, a gorgeous two-layer heart, two chipboard word art, and two journal tags.  Here is the elements preview:


The kit also includes a whooping 14 papers.  Six of them are solids, but they are not your normal, run-of-the-mill solids - these papers have texture, and color variations, and character:  gray, brown, 2 in different tones of peach, 2 yellow and a gorgeous green.

And now the patterned papers:  the first one is a brown and gray damask that is incredibly luxurious and dramatic.  Next comes a cream paper with polka dots in all the colors of the kit that is so beautiful - this is a paper you will use over and over and over again.  The polka dots are followed by a soft plaid with peach and gray and yellow and a touch of green.  Another cream paper with a green lattice pattern that I want as a fabric for the chairs in my sunroom - it is that beautiful.  A gray and white houndstooth pattern that goes beautifully with the soft solid papers.  Then comes a beautiful green paper with the cutest little white flowers with black centers.  And last, but certainly not least, a gorgeous geometrical pattern in grays, peaches and greens on a creamy background.   Here is the preview of the papers:


And for a little inspiration, here are some layouts created with this kit by Ruby Lane's CT team:
