Vintage Inspiration Projects

This week I plan on diverting my attention to working on some vintage inspired projects.... Yesterday toward evening I found myself snipping away at paper dolls.... I have a card to make for a reception we will be unable to attend as we have a commitment to our church festival coming up in two weeks. I will be pulling out snippets of ribbons and wonderful old buttons and lace and jewelry to complete some of these projects. I always love hunting for all these special embellishments and transforming them into something unexpected and different. I will be making a couple items for our church craft booth for our festival also... Vintage ephemera is always in the back of my mind for creating... I have always love making things , however over the years my taste has really changed.... Everything I create is vintage inspiration.... It is a return to loveliness for me.

Good luck in making your cards. I'm sure there going to turn out really nice, like your other ones.
