A Little Shine & A Little Sister

Hello, Vintage Street Market friends!  Shellye here with you on this Sunday to share a trio of fun things that I’ve created over the past month with Vintage Street goodies and other flea-market finds.

First up is a layout; an 8×11 layout to be exact!  I found the perfect sketch from Page Maps and went from there.  I’ve used patterned papers, cut-out journal square and a punch-out tag from the Family Fun Paper Kit.  I also punched out a couple of hearts from one of the patterned papers as well!

I also added some buttons, pearls and sticker letters from my stash.

To create the pleated accent, I cut 2″ x 12″ strip of paper, punched one edge with a decorative edge and folded at 1/2″ increments.  Glue the ends together and fan into a circle.  Glue to the top of a 2″ circle and place something heavy on top until the glue has dried.  Vintage Street Market paper is the perfect weight for creating these fun embellishments!

My mom’s birthday was on the 11th of this month and of course she was expecting a handmade card hehehe…her expectation I could not let down!

Once again you see that I’ve created a pleated embellishment!  This time I used the metallic paper from Dimestore Vogue   To round the edges, I used a corner-rounder punch.  For the base of the card, I layered patterned papers from the Family Fun Paper Kit and hand-cut the vacuuming woman from one of the pages!  A little tag from the Party Games collection was attached to the side with a ribbon bow and paper flowers from my stash.  With my home computer and printer, I printed the sentiment onto the piece of paper as shown.  The inside of the card simply read “and have a happy birthday!”            She loved it!

Finally…and I LOVE this…is my Patriotic-decked-out-BINGO-card-hanger!  I have a small wired dress form on the side of my craft desk.  On this I like to attach something fun that reflects the holiday or season…it adds a little happiness to my clutter and makes me smile.

Isn’t it great?!?  Can you sense my delight and love LOL  And I have to admit, Vintage Street Market BINGO Craft Cards are my favorite product.  The versatility with the various sizes and colors are endless!  I layered one of the large red cards with a medium royal blue one.  From my stash, I glittered a chipboard star and layered it with a glittered scalloped circle, vintage milk cap and patriotic embellishments.  The perimeter of the red card was lined out in Red Twirly Twine.

After punching two small holes in the top BINGO card, I looped through a bit of gingham ribbon and tied into bows at each side.

If you have any questions about any of these projects, just let me know 🙂

Enjoy your week and thanks for stopping by Vintage Street Market!
