Another Time and Place: The 70s

Have you noticed how the fashion trends from the 1970s seem to be all around us these days? From large flowers (often in clashing colors) and bold prints to neon colors and wide leg (elephant leg) pants, the 1970s are alive and well represented in retail stores everywhere these days.

Some of the digi-scrapping designers have joined the rebirth of the 70s with great scrap kits too. If you have photos from the 1970s you'll enjoy the kits I have for you today! Both kits are offered for free (get there quick while the gettin's good!) from the Raspberry Road Designs blog. First off, we have a kit called "Seventies Styling". Remember the popular harvest gold and avocado green kitchen appliances and carpeting that were so prevalent back in the 1970s? This kit was created with those in mind.



You can download the elements here and the papers here.

Next we have another kit reminiscent of the 1970s. It's called "Color Your World". Remember the song "Colour My World? by the group Chicago? Yep, that was from 1970. High schools all over the country played it at proms and dances back in the good ole days! So here is a great kit that will no doubt compliment the latest fashions you wore to those dances.



Now doesn't this kit take you back??? You can download the elements here and the papers here.

Get on over and download these great kits. You know you have photos just calling out to be scrapped with them! Be sure to say thanks to the designer. She's very talented and generous to share these kits with us!

Now, go get creative with your genealogy!
