Three new releases and a freebie

Happy Friday!

I hope you all had a fantastic week and are ready for some R+R during the weekend!  They say things come in threes...and Ruby Lane's products are no exception!  This week she is releasing three fantastic new products:

First up, a new collaboration with Elise's Pieces called Vintage Christmas.  Here is the preview of the full kit and of the paper pack included in the kit:

What can I say about this fantastic kit that you are not already seeing in the previews?  This is pure and traditional - vintage - Christmas!  The perfect kit to scrap about your family's Christmas traditions, the pictures with Santa when the kids are all decked out, the formal family dinner...Look at the beauty of the papers!  The colors scream traditional Christmas: dark reds, greens, several patterns and hues.  And the elements?  So incredibly ornate and fine velvet or brocade!  Just gorgeous!  There are bits of lace and jeweled ornaments, holly and silk, bells and tags, ribbons and bows, fabric flowers and greenery, vintage postcards and golden elements...and two full alphas!  This is a classic Christmas kit, with everything we have come to expect from a traditional Christmas scene.  This beauty is for sale at Ruby Lane's store at Funky Playground Designs.

Here are a few of my favorite layouts with this kit by Ruby Lane's creative team (I could only post four layouts here because we have so much to cover today, but I encourage you to visit Ruby Lane's gallery for more inspiration!):

Next we have another Christmas kit, Home for Christmas, less dramatic and in a softer color palette but equally gorgeous:

This kit was inspired by all the family traditions that make the holidays so special...whether it is baking goodies, sitting by the fireplace, exchanging gifts or giving to charity, sharing a wonderful meal..."Home is where the heart is" and "All hearts come home for Christmas" ...enjoy the sweet traditions you share with your families and then create memories that last forever by scrapping the pictures. The kit includes a beautiful stamp tree, several gorgeously wrapped presents, ornaments and a star for the tree, ribbons, frames and flowers, two beautiful borders, wordart labels, two tags and a full alpha, plus 14 patterned and/or textured papers.  If you subscribe to Ruby Lane's newsletter - which I highly encourage you to do - you received a beautiful quickpage created with this kit exclusively for her newsletter subscribers.  For a little more inspiration, here are some layouts by Ruby Lane's creative team:

The last of the products being released this week is a new Commercial Use product by Ruby Lane, available exclusively at Funky Playground Designs; it is her December CU Grab Bag and here is the preview:

And now for the weekly freebie created by Ruby Lane exclusively for her blog followers.  It is an absolutely gorgeous quickpage created with the kit Vintage Christmas, and you can download it here:

Happy scrapping!
