We hope you enjoyed all of the amazingly creative projects created with Vintage Street Market and Basically Bare products. I know we all have been enjoying working with them!
We have one last project to show today from Cheryl McAdam:
Hi all, Cheryl here
I just want to start out by saying how much I loved making this album. I have had these photos for eons, waiting for the perfect products to make an album with. The Vintage Street Market Family Fun paper kit was just what I was waiting for. It has a cool 50’s era feel which is perfect for the time period I was working with (1952 to 1970) but not so much that you can’t use it for other things. I don’t have enough photos and memorabilia from this time to create a 12×12 album, but a little too much for a 6×8 or 8×8 album so this book from Basically Bare was just perfect for what I wanted to do. It has so many cool elements to it: Corrugated cardboard, chipboard, canvas, Kraft envelopes and acrylic tags! You could truly go crazy with this album! You can remove and rearrange the pages too if need be. I wanted to make the album in “old School” style so I used the tinted tape to attach some of the photos to the pages. I had some old cancelled checks that were my parents to I used those to get the information I put on the envelopes and then stored the checks in the envelopes. I love that! I am a memorabilia freak, so the fact that this book had envelopes in it was really a bonus. I had so much fun playing with the paper dolls from the kit, I couldn’t stop! I used to love playing with paper dolls when I was a kid. Yes, that’s me on the sister pages, I think from 1968 to 1970. The family on the front of the album is the paper dolls and I dressed them all up for the cover, lol. I used the Tinted tape around the edges of each page to give the album a slightly distressed appearance. On the canvas page I stitched a piece of lace to the bottom to create a pocket for more memorabilia. There are just a ton of things you can do with this line of cardstock and embellishments and the album. I hope you have as much fun with these great products as I did.
