1 Comment | Leave a new comment

Hi everyone, Connie here with a card for that special Grad in your life.  I used a combination of Vintage Fusion, mixing the old with the new!

I love using the old flash cards.  I thought it was the perfect pairing being this is a graduation card.

Make sure you check out the VSM store~it is filled with lot’s of vintage goodness.  Other products used are: twirly twine, tissue paper garland, TH hanger clips, and flash cards!

You can find all kinds of vintage fusion  (the perfect blend of old and new) in the store.  I love using the old vintage tickets and labels.

The flash cards make for the perfect sentiment inside the card!!!   I’ll see you in a couple weeks with another vintage fusion card!!!! by: C. MercerRead the rest

Hi, Connie back with the rest of the Spring Party decorations. I don’t want to disappoint a little girl!!!

Here is the bucket , all decorated, holding the kid treats!  I though it would also make a cute centerpiece for the table.  I used some vintage fusion, Craft bingo cards and Twirly Twine.

A close up of the kid treats.  I used the Cakewalk-guest List paper and punch holes in it to hold a candy sucker.  Easy and I love the vintage , retro look!!!

Here is a close-up of the tag!!!  Simple and cute!!!!  Here is all the decorations photographed together. I bet you feel like you have been to a party:)!!!!!

Hope this makes you want to have a party!!

Hi everyone, Connie here with party invites!!!  For the past couple of years my granddaughter  hosts a Spring Party~she is 8 years old.   All the duties are given out and mine are to make decorations and bring kid treats.

So here are the invitations, for them!!!  I used the Bingo Craft cards, Twirly Twine, Tinted Tape and some vintage fusion!!!

I used the Cakewalk~Guest List paper by October Afternoon to make the little fold out invitations.  They are taped together with the Tinted Tape.  Stay tuned in a couple of weeks I’ll have the rest of the decorations up and all photographed together!! Until then~

Easter Goodies~

3 Comments | Leave a new comment

Hi, Connie here with some Easter goodies with plenty of cuteness added!!  I started with this adorable vintage ice cream cup, some vintage ephemera and one pink flower.  That was enough to make this cutie~

Perfect Easter decoration! The egg is on a bed of Ivory Tissue Paper.  Then I made some cards out of some cool retro bunny paper by Reminisce and added some vintage lace and a button.  The cards are 4″ X 4″ a great size to use as table place cards.  I used the Tinted Tape on the greeting card.

Here they are all together, waiting for Easter and a party!!!  Be sure and stop by the Vintage Street Market store~ it is full of vintage goodies!!

Happy Easter !!!! by~C. Mercer
