Vintage projects

WOW!!! 4 days of postings...what's happening???? Am I lonely? De-stressing?

Anyway, I'm glad your here! Now I have to show you some projects I finished while I was on vacation using my vintage stuff. It was soo hard to use this stuff cause I really didn't want to "use" it. It felt like when you just started to scrapbook and you had to cut that first picture....it gets easier as time goes by. Right??

I had bought some cream tags with me and wanted to CASE (somewhat) of what Kris Hurst Cumming posted on her blog Blissfull Elements . It's the 3rd picture down. I just thought that would be soo cool making a bookmark with some vintage items. Here is my finished product... I used vintage sheet music, punched flowers and "fern" leaves from Martha Stuart crepe paper, buttons, ribbon, words cut from a vintage school book, and distressed them. I should have used a smaller tag, but these worked out OK.

Here is project #2...

I brought some plain small notebooks with me to cover. Here is my very first one... I used patterned paper to cover the notebook. I cut a piece from some vintage sheet music and used some tiles from my Anagram game. There is a piece of twill ribbon to use as a book mark. I added Prima flowers, a brad, two small American Crafts die cuts sandwiching the ribbon and distressed it all.

You know I love your comments, so don't forget to leave me some.

Until tomorrow friends....

Somehow I missed this post! I love your tags. Kris Hurst is an amazing talent. She designed my Christmas blog banner for me....it will soon be time to put it up-YIKES. Your style has changed since I first knew you...I really love what you're doing now. I have an envelope full of goodies I need to start working with...hehehehe!
