All Retro Kit

Why do we give you such wonderful goodies you ask? Well, because we would hope that you would feel a small inclination to maybe have us print them. Just a thought.

This Persnickety Prints Retro Kit reminds me of the disco song that Gloria Gainer performed back in 1979. It is an all time Karaoke Favorite, and the lyrics tend to hit home at times.
 First I was afraid      
I was petrified
Kept thinking I could never live
without you by my side
But I spent so many nights
thinking how you did me wrong
I grew strong
I learned how to carry on
and so you're back
from outer space
I just walked in to find you here
with that sad look upon your face
I should have changed my stupid lock
I should have made you leave your key
If I had known for just one second
you'd be back to bother me
Go on now go walk out the door
just turn around now
'cause you're not welcome anymore
weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye
you think I'd crumble
you think I'd lay down and die
Oh no, not I
I will survive
as long as i know how to love
I know I will stay alive
I've got all my life to live
I've got all my love to give
and I'll survive
I will survive
Of course, the next verse gets even better, and I get all worked up, so I should stop there. :)
I think we can all relate to this song at some point in our lives and interpret it in our own way.
Here are some layouts created with this "retro" vibe themed kit...

One of my favorite pictures of my little 4 year old, Ryder.

This is a picture of my parents... a year before I was born. They both drove 1969 Volkswagon Bugs. When I turned 16, guess which one I got? The one on the left. It barely went 45 mph, the hub caps always fell off, and I had a unique scent of gasoline after driving, but I loved that car.
My Dad was an artist, always being creative. He cut out the lips, lashes and bow tie to decorate their "his and hers" beatles.  My Dad is now crazy, my Mom has cancer, and they are divorced.... back to the theme... "I Will Survive".

This is a Facebook Exclusive Download.
We will post a free Quickpage soon here on the blog for those of you "anti-facebookers".



  1. Just a quick note to let you know that a link to this post will be placed on CraftCrave in the DigiFree category today [19 Feb 12:00am GMT]. Thanks, Maria

  2. this is a new trend : you HAVE to get & go to Facebook for the freebie : no way

  3. Anonymous, we know that you don't appreciate facebook. As a company, we feel that it would be more beneficial to our customers to put time and money into free digital supplies, rather than google or facebook ads. By technically "paying with a tweet or a like" we get the same result- spreading the word. These original kits take countless hours to create, we don't feel like that is asking too much?
    We will continue to add freebies to our blog.

  4. only if you can get them to download urgh I cant it is taking forever.

  5. I love this kit btw. And the picture of your parents in their bugs is ADORABLE! Thank you so much for everything! I work in a print shop and we don't offer prices EVEN CLOSE to this low (it's $5.50 a square foot to print anything larger than 11x17 in color, which includes 12x12 layouts) we also charge for scanning and everything else that goes with it. Thank you for offering your services at such a low price and thank you for the amazing kits!

  6. wish this was still free. love.
