Vintage Collage Tag

Today, I made this little tag to share with you. I covered card stock tag with pattern papers and distressed inked the edges. Then I added a torn music sheet from vintage music, a coffee stained tag that had been stamped, and glued on a small Prima flower and buttons. On the back of the tag with double sided tape I added a white paper doily that was cut to size. The top of tag has seam binding ribbon to finish it off.

My, My It’s July!

Happy July! Summer is now in full swing and the heat has really arrived in Michigan. Today, I am sharing a few collage items that I made the past week. I also dressed up Miss Adelaide Rose in Patriotic style.

Our celebrations will be different this year that is for sure. I hope you will pray for our country right now because she needs a lot of love. I am blessed to live here and call America my home.

Stay safe and well! Happy Fourth of July!

Bless USA Vintage Card

Hello My Friend’s!

Today, I am sharing something from the archives that was created way back in 2008. With the Fourth of July just around the corner, I thought the patriotic theme was appropriate.

The stamps on this card were actually made by me back then as well. On the tag is a stamp of my Dad’s enlistment photo. The center photo is from a scan and I put the words in before I printed it. My Dad is in the center. The postmark is another stamp that I created from a scan of a draft letter for the war that my older Uncle received.

Little bits of ephemera, star buttons, tag, embossing and distressing inks, and metal brad were also added.
