This month is filled with birthdays for me including my Dad’s. He celebrated earlier this week and tomorrow we will meet as a family for a great time with a big celebration. Here is the card I am giving him.
I used a brown card base that I rounded the corners of and then added pattern paper and a journaling card from Family Fun Paper Kit. I created the loop with vintage 16mm film which I embellished with a button tied with brown Twirly Twine. I stitched a little and then added some clear stickers for an easy sentiment. I hope you like!… Read the rest
Hello there! Amy here checking in again with a card featuring ephemera. Our store offers many vintage items that you can find here.
My card combines new with old for a fresh thank you for someone dear. All supplies are listed at bottom of post.
I made a banner with aqua twirly twine and then added lots of fun items for a layered effect. I created the blue gingham pennant using the paper sheet from Sewing Room Kit. I added a flashcard, punched the heart from vintage paper and added a bingo marker, cut a piece of film, layered some tickets, and then embellished with a charm hanging from a garmet pin.
Thanks for looking and hope you are inspired. 🙂

April is here! I am starting see floral blooms and patches of green grass. The birds are out making nests and I hope to see a few nests with little babies soon.
My card for today is for my Mom’s birthday next week. I love mixing vintage ephemera with new products.
I created a pocket with tag for the front. I then used a flashcard for the sentiment. The pennant was created from red foil and a vintage ticket is inserted in the photo slide. I hope you like!

Hey all! Amy here and I am back as promised with an altered Easter project to share. I started with a vintage ice cream cup and then began building.
I added tissue paper garland around the edges then layered tinsel garland with aqua Twirly Twine on top. Next I used May Arts red twill stripes ribbon to make a bow and then added two paper flowers. I added a vintage bingo marker for the center.
For the banner, I painted wooden skewers and attached handmade finials from beads. I tied aqua Twirly Twine to the skewers and then added three red foil triangles from Party Games Paper Sheets and Tags. Next, I punched holes in a fare ticket stub and added to the right skewer. I then used a sticker sentiment backed on a Jillibean pattern paper. I attached the skewers to the inside of the cup with tape.
I love the way it came out and especially like that it is not the traditional colors of Spring. I challenged myself with that for a bit. Finally I filled my cup with a little Easter grass and a pale blue egg. I think these cups are perfect for birthdays, other holidays, or even a special pick me up. I hope this inspires you!
