Vintage Street Market featured in CHA Workshop

3 Comments | Leave a new comment

Vintage Street Market “Tinted Tape” will be featured in a workshop by instructor and VSM design team member, Candy Rosenberg, at the Craft and Hobby Association Trade Show in Rosemont, Illinois on July 19th.

This workshop features a new album, “Krafty Keepsakess” by Basically Bare, covered in Le’ Cirque paper collection from Graphic 45.  We will be using the “aged” and “numbers” tape on this fun album that explores the creative side of ourselves.  I wanted to take this opportunity to show you how I am using the tinted tape in this project.

Here we used the “aged” tape to adhere the photograph onto the page of the album.  The tape is perfect for this purpose, so easy to do and gives a fantastic “aged” look to the photo.  Our students are going to love this technique!

And we used “numbers” tape to accent one of the pages.  This gives it such a great look in an easy to do way.

I would like to take this moment to thank each of the Workshop Sponsors: Basically Bare, Graphic45, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, Vintage Street Market, May Arts, Imaginarium Designs, Flourish with a Bling, Ranger.

Age is Just a Number!

Good morning, everyone!

  Julie here with another project to share with you from CHA…

This time, a birthday card for your best girlfriend…I LOVE the new “Dimestore Vogue” Paper Sheets & Tags kit–so much vintage fun to play with!

I loved using the pattern side of the paper sheet for the background of my card…just perfect!

The aqua foil sheet is just dreamy…love the color, love the shine…and it gives such an added texture and fun to your projects!  Here, I used a large scallop punch on the foil, then embellished the scalloped pieces with Platinum Stickles–just a bit more pop!

I love the vintage ladies on the paper sheets–so perfect to cut out and layer onto your projects…and this button card from the tag sheet is perfect for your sentiment.  Here I just made my own computer-generated wording using a vintage-style typewriter font–“Remember…age is just a number!”, it says…

I used the “Linen” Tinted Tape on the corners of the button card–love the added texture and “aging” it gives the card…

…a bit of the “Pink Sorbet” Baker’s Twine knotted onto the button card for a bit of texture…

For a border at the bottom of the card, I cut out the vintage yardstick from the paper sheet–love how it finishes it off perfectly!

Well, that’s it for me today…thanks for stopping by!  Hope you’re enjoying all the fun possibilities with the “Paper Sheets & Tags” kits!
