Well Peeps I just can’t stop myself from making vintagy Valentine projects…I am outta control!!! But how can you blame me when there are so many beautiful Really Reasonable Ribbons to add to our creations??? I made these tags with my girls in class. They originally were made to fit in a fun little red berry container….but the more I look at it I think I might string them together to make a banner.
I started by cutting nice tag shapes out of 110 lb cardstock so they would be sturdy then covered them with vintage book pages. Then I layered on elebenty hundred images and fun embellishments!
I am smitten for heart shaped doilies!!! This little cutie Valentine clown has a bingo card, clock image and a little itty bitty love letter hung on a metal clip on a glittery heart brad. I chose Chevron Striped Twill on Red for this tag.
I “sourced” some pretty shimmery hearts in the wedding section of the craft store and wound a striped patterned paper through it. Another bingo card here and crepe fringe. This tag has Burlap Center Stitch in Red.
More Valentiny awesomeness for these layers and a sweet little bow created with Red Satin with Metallic Edge.
Last but not least…this cutie has Glitz Ribbon in Red.
Okay that’s all for me..I’m off to string these together and add them to my seasonal decor : ) Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative. : ) G
Hey there Peeps! I’m just popping in to share the Retro Valentine Mini Album we created in class last night. This was so much fun to create and I always have a blast with my Vintage Chicks!
We used lots of layers of patterned papers and vintagy images, ribbon and flowers, metal and tinsel and fringe, doilies and paper rosettes and a clothes pin. I used the fabulous Red Plaid Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon to make the fun bows. There are a few kits available for this project in the shop Retro Valentine Mini Album.
Okay that’s all for me…wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : )G
I’m very excited this morning Peeps! I’m sharing my first project created with the new Home Sweet Home paper line from Graphic 45 that I created especially to display at CHA. You all know how much we love the summer holidays in this house especially the 4th of July since it’s my Hubbies birthday….so anything Americana is my absolute fave. Home Sweet Home is a little slice of Americana and I will be using it on everything!!!
I started with the 12×12 Matchbook Box which I painted and inked then added elebenty hundred layers of fussy cut images on foam spacers to get a ton of depth and dimension. I can not wait to display this with my other seasonal patriotic decor.
