There’s just something about an antebellum plantation home: the silence of the Spanish moss, the stillness in the shade of trees, the grace exuded by the stately decor, and the luxurious feel of the sumptuous fabrics. Bring that feeling to your layouts with Southern Charm. This timeless scrapbooks kit lives up to its name, with perfectly charming details aplenty. The gentle, whitewashed color palette adds color tastefully, with delicate patterns that add class without detracting from your photos. Floral motifs, cameos, and ephemera complement the washed newsprint solids, grungy paint, cotton branches, and typewriter key alpha. If you’re looking to conjure up a timeless grace in your layouts – whether you’re scrapping genealogy, a family vacation, or simply your favorite photos – look no further than Southern Charm.
This kit is part of the May Buffet at Gingerscraps and is available exclusively there this month. It will be in My Memories beginning in June. You can buy the complete kit, or purchase the different packs separately to mix and match. The template pack is sold separately.
In addition to Southern Charm and Template Pack 38, I also used a new word art pack, Our Mother, from Word Art World.
As soon as I saw this kit and the cotton bole, I knew I would be scrapping a photo of my grandfather, a farmer who grew cotton, as well as wheat and watermelons. I turned the inscription on the back of the photo into my title. I love that I have his handwriting on this layout.

Now I really wanted to use the new template pack, but I couldn’t think of a photo that would work with it and Southern Charm, so I chose a different Scraps N Pieces kit. I really like this photo of Jessica and I that we took during her field trip to the Austin Nature and Science Center.
