Vintage Valentine Fold Out Album


Today, I am sharing a Vintage Valentine Fold Out Album that I created for a local class in January. It has a combination of digital papers, postcards, ephemera, quotes, lace, coffee stained tags, card stock, and tied shut with seam binding ribbon.

The tags are removable for journaling purposes and other items can be tucked into the pockets. The album could take a different twist with little photos of a loved one added and incorporate them with that Valentine theme.

I hope you are enjoying this holiday season and all the hustle and bustle it brings!

{Candlewick Quilt Stocking}

Happy December! Today, I want to share a stocking I made using a vintage quilt that had been candlewicked on it. I found this wonderful tutorial of how to put the lining inside and finish it all.

I added some vintage lace bits and mother of pearl buttons too. This stocking is available in my Etsy shop. It would make a lovely gift or accent in the home.

I hope you are staying warm and snuggly in your part of the world!

{Winter Chipboard Tag}

One of my favorite ways to use Chipboard tags is to paint and layer them with vintage goodness. I paint the base of the tag with a couple coats of craft paint (in an off white shade) and once it is dry start the process.

I used a few pieces of vintage lace and glued it directly on to the tag using E6000. Once that sets up, I glued some vintage book pages on, ephemera I had printed out, collage image (Paper Whimsy), mother of pearl buttons, foam snowflake and the final touch a silver German scrap. I found these from 32North a few years ago. I finished off the top of the tag with a little bit of crinkled seam binding ribbon in a beige tone.

This sort of tag is strong enough to be an ornament hung on the tree or even in a garland.
