Inspired by our travels and the travels we want to take, American Vintage captures a little heart and a little soul of the Americas. Our gypsy journeys take us by road, by sea, by rail and by air to the many places of this great nation. If by air, we might miss some magic along the journey but arrive quickly to magical places. If by road, we can take our gypsy time and explore the nooks and crannies off the USA.
This 2 page layout created by Erin Reed embraces the feel of the new collection so well. Erin’s mixed media layout is a perfect way to show off her photos and bring to life our new American Vintage Papers, Cards, Charms and more.
