Natalie visits Italy with her newest - Ciao A Tutti

Natalie is taking you on a trip to Italy this week. The new collection is called Ciao A Tutti and it's perfect for scrapping the Italy pavilion, meals at any Italian dining place, Epcot's Food and Wine Festival and much more.  

This kit contains 16 papers. 11 flowers, 5 frames, 9 ribbons, 3 ricracs, a string, 4 buttons, 3 flairs, 4 leaves, a bunch of grapes, 2 flourishes, a row of columns, an overlay, a vase, a pasta scatter, spaghetti on a fork, a slice of pizza, a chianti bottle, a glass of wine, a toothpick pennant, 4 borders, a berry pick, a gondola, 2 gondola poles, a glitter scatter, 5 word tags, a turret, a leaning tower, a stone element and 4 alphas.

Look at the amazing word art titles Natalie has for you.  With 4 alphas in this kit, it's great to mix and match.  Take a look at all the other premade packs.

You can find this collection and all of Natalie's other amazing designs at her blog store at Natalie's Little Corner Of The World.

I made 2 layouts with this collection.  The first uses all the premades.  It was easy to start with a paper stack, add in a cluster frame, place the cluster strip on the bottom left, and use a word art on the top.  I added in some embellishments of my own and then it's done.  So easy peasy.

And here's a second page featuring that cool Neptune fountain.

I made a word art title for you, it's great for that Epcot festival.  Hope you like it!  You can also find a freebie at Cynthia's Blog and Lisa's Blog.
