Who doesn’t love to get a package with lots of things to open inside? Especially a package as pretty as this pocket with a stationary set inside? There’s cards, tags, and envelope seals. All in dreamy colors and tied with shimmery ribbon.
I am lovin the music sheet strips : ) And the fancy brads : )
All these yummy little packages inside. Wouldn’t this make a nice gift?
I am just crazy over the new ephemera packs! You know me…I had to get into them all! I made this little book with an assortment of pieces and I love the eclectic look! It’s so very vintage and sweet : )
The front cover features a charming image from Graphics Fairy…that was the inspiration. The chipboard frame is from Crate. Funny little arrow to show to flip the page : )
Image from ephemera pack from Glitz. Other smaller images from Pink Paislee. I covered the chipboard button and “stitched” it on. The young man is wearing a cute crown!
The right side is a piece from Pink Paislee. Love that it looks like print from vintage childs book. I added a few layers to brighten it up!
Okay….who doesn’t love glitter???? Just sayin. The tag on the right pulls out.
Another pocket with a tag. I added several rubons and vintage inspired trim.
Can you believe that floral vine is a rubon? How cool is that?
Lot’s of fun layers here! And chipboard, and trim, and buttons, and keys…oh my!!! The large pink tag pulls out of the pocket.
The back is sweet and simple : )
Having so much fun with the patriotic theme. My next project is of course collage, and of course a banner, and of course vintage!!!!!
My salute to Americana!
There are so many details…where to begin??? Okay I made the stars first. They are folded to be dimensional, inked for age then glittered. The base is a month from the Jenni Bowlin calendar set…I loved that it gave it an instant border. Next layer is from Pink Paislee Hometown Summer collection. Very appropriate don’t ya think : ) Red border around the Blue dot…also from Pink Paislee to make it pop. Vintage image is from Graphics Fairy. Ephemera pieces from the Daily Jounque collection. Brown parts tag is from Jilli Bean Soup. Vintage sticker, I did cut out the background. Sparkly chipboard for accents and some red buttons tied with string! We have most of these elements available in the shop if you want to make one of your own to celebrate our summer holidays!!!
This sweet little pocket was inspired by the great vintage images I found on Graphics Fairy. With our summer holidays coming up we all get a little more patriotic this time of year don’t we?
The blue and white dot and red pattern paper is from Jenni Bowlin Studio. That awesome canvas ruffle( you didn’t think I sewed that did you??? LOL) is from Pink Paislee. Red check ribbon from the Christmas clearance at the craft store. The ephemera elements are from Pink Paislee too. We have some left in the store…but I don’t expect them to last long. How awesome is the tag in the pocket???? It’s ginormous!!! I sanded it and inked it and added some big buttons with string.
