just an old-fashioned girl

Hello and welcome. I'm glad you dropped by. If you´re looking for something a little nostalgic of bygone eras with a timeless elegance and a little modern twist – in other words, something slightly “retro” – then you should feel right at home here in my shabby chic room. Month by month, there will always be something new to see so I hope you´ll enjoy your stay and come back again soon.

Glitter Anyone?

I´m still playing around with gold and glitter styles along with some swirl shapes and brushes. As with my Valentine motifs I´ve been experimenting using a combination of both, and again, as it seemed a shame to delete them all afterwards, I´ve kept a few. So for all the glitter fans out there, here they are. They blend in well with this month´s featured kit, Heart Of Gold, which you´ll find HERE along with the above freebie plus a little bonus gift for those of you who missed it first time around.


  1. The glitter is beautiful especially with your always-gorgeous swirls. I just need to sit down long enough to grab these little goodies and do some scrapping!

  2. Oh my, what pretties! Sparkly and elegant they look just right for a fairytale wedding, or maybe just the upcoming royal one? Thank you for sharing them.

  3. Wow...these are wonderful. Just downloaded them and am anxious to get to use them. Now for a royal or fairytale event to happen in my life! That may be a while. Like Jean said, there's always the royal wedding coming up!

    Thanks you so much of playing around with some glitter and gold and sharing the results with us.

  4. Thank you so much for the freebie. I just downloaded them, and I think they are fantastic! I love the swirls! Thanks a million! I can't wait to use them. :)
