17 Comments | Leave a new comment

Ready for our second day of ribbony inspiration??? We so enjoy working with May Arts Ribbons and they work PERFECTLY with Vintage Street Market papers!

This great project is by Connie Mercer (

For this layout, Connie uses the reverse side of the Distinguished Dad cardstock sheet from the Family Fun collection. Don’t you just LOVE the orange fallish flowers? Yep-ribbon! May Arts orange pom pom ribbon to be exact. What a clever idea!

Stamping on the May Arts twill is also a classic technique. And the green leaves? Simply the green Vintage Street Market Bingo Craft card!

This next super fun project is from Andrea Budjack (

For these projects, Andrea uses our sweet paper doll from the Family Fun collection. She is totally trimmed in style with May Arts ribbons! And, of course, pearls. ūüôā What a fun project to make and a great gift to receive!

May Arts ribbon tops this tag perfectly! And, what a great way to use Family Fun cardstock scraps-make a tag of odds and ends-just like a quilt!

Thanks for joining us today! We hope you have been inspired to try May Arts ribbons with Vintage Street Market papers-a terrific combo!

Contained Vintage

2 Comments | Leave a new comment

When a vintage doily becomes much more than a decorative place mat.¬† Recently spent some time with my mother out and about trying to find estate sales when we came across a few vintage treasures.¬† I don’t collect much, but when I saw large boxes of knitted doilies, fabric and buttons I fell in love.¬† Today I used a few of my finds, many Vintage Street Market goodies and a little bit of this and that to create a gift container and tag.

It may go against the norm; however, I used my Sizzix circle die and doily find to create a layered flower on the top of the jar.  Topped with a mulberry flower from VSM.

Used the bingo craft card to create a label, a ticket which I stamped for the tiny tag and vintage book paper to embellish the layers.¬† So maybe die cutting something that was so finely knitted isn’t such a bad thing.¬† Helped create a gift that is just perfect for someone special.

Happy Wednesday!¬† Ready to get a little creative with your Bingo Craft Cards today? I love the idea of creating a “frame” on projects.¬† The slight shadow it creates, giving the project a focal point and allowing each element to pop.¬† With the use of a little twine, bingo card and foam adhesive, your project can be built up and framed out to your hearts desire.

Sharing with you today a card and wall hang that uses similar elements to bring your projects to new heights.

vintage trimmings…

Leave a comment

Today is all about bringing some of my favorite vintage trim and Vintage Street Market goodies together in creating greeting cards.  Here it is all about the layering and mixing of materials to bring that much loved vintage feel to each card.

In this card I used a bit of burlap mesh, fabric, vintage doily, vintage lace and fabric.  Added a touch of vintage 16mm film to create a border.  Why go green when it comes to the flower leaves?  Here I hand cut leaves from the bingo craft cards and inked the edges to give them a little more color and edge definition.  The next card features the adorable little girl from the paper doll collection.

Again used burlap mesh, fabric and vintage doily with the Vintage Street Market papers.

Also used the bingo craft card on this card as the background.  Sanded the edges to age it a bit and inked the edges slightly as well.  Enjoy!

cup of tea…

Happy Friday!  Time to sit back and relax a little, maybe with some vintage goodies and a cup of tea.  To jump start your weekend, here to share a gift set that is both easy to create and have some fun along the way.

Recently organizing my craft room when I came across these teacup, spoon and tea bag chipboard pieces.  After removing the top layer of each piece and inking the edges to darken them, they were a perfect addition and theme for my project.  Headed on over to Pinterest for a tea quote that was printed onto cardstock and trimmed.

Began assembling this gift set by created a stuffed heart wall hang using a mix of Dimestore Vogue , Family Fun, and Family Fashion kits.  Added a portion of a bingo craft card behind the teacup as well.  Used wire to add beads, chipboard spoon and on the top to hang.  Also added brown twirly twine to the top of the heart, adding the quote as well.

Used Cricut Expression (doodlecharms) to create the card and tag.  Backed the heart cutout with small bingo craft cards and added tinted tape.  Used the heart cutout on the teacups and tea bag.  Enjoy your weekend and maybe find a few minutes to enjoy a cup of tea and vintage goodies.
