Good Thursday Greetings, Vintage Street fans! Shellye here with a couple of things to share today. First though, I hope that all of you moms had a wonderful Mother’s Day! I ended up working the entire weekend (nights), but got to witness many new moms celebrating their ‘first’ Mother’s Day…sweet!
Here is the card that I made for my very own mom:
I used the Paper Sheets & Tags from Dimestore Vogue and punched the leaves out from the green paper of the same collection. The patterned paper and “Mother” punch-out are from the Family Fashion Accessory Kit. From my stash I used a reproduction vintage button, adhesive pearls, ribbon and paper doily. The “for you” tag is from the Denim Twirly Twine packet. Tip: for a real leaf look, just fold the punched leave in half and give a little crease
FATHER and BROTHER
My oldest son had Senior Prom a couple of weeks ago and I just love this picture of the hubby and our two boys! I decided to create a little stand-up collage showcasing the photo.
First, I stared with a 4×7 sheet of chipboard and covered it with the notebook paper from the back of Distinguished Dad (Family Fun Paper Kit). I then began the collage process by layering on (and machine stitching as I went) an X-Large and Medium BINGO Craft Cards. I also used the journal insert from the Aqua Twirly Twine as a mat for the smaller BINGO card. I wanted to break up all of the ‘blues’ so I added the ‘happiness’ tag from the Vintage Vogue Collection, as well as the adorable ‘Family’ punch-out from the Family Fashion Accessory Kit. For the fun pennant, I took two vintage tickets and folded them in half and then glued around a bamboo skewer. I attached the ‘Brother’ pennant (from Family Fashion Accessory Kit) to the top and then the ticket pennant below that with letter stickers spelling out DAD. I glued the skewer alongside the photo and tied a bit of Aqua Twirly Twine as an accent. Finally, for the back, I folded a strip of chipboard and glued it into place. TIP: when creating a collage, keep an assortment of thick and thin foam dots on hand…this makes each of your layers stand out and SHINE!
Hope you enjoyed the projects…see you all next month!
