Vintage Sweets

Hello, everyone!

Julie here again with a bit of sweet vintage–and some sweets–to share with you today!

I love the Kitsch Kitchen pieces available from Vintage Street Market–so much to inspire!  I found it so VERY easy to put together this scrapbook page of my grandmother, Velda {beautiful pictured in the 1940s} and her famous English Toffee recipe.

{love the look the “Linen” Tinted Tape gives the corners of the photo–just the perfect touch!}

I remember her little grocery lists neatly written out and waiting on her kitchen table–just ready for her next trip to the store…

And here’s Velda’s recipe–a staple in our family at Christmas time.  The holidays just wouldn’t be the same without delicious vintage plaid tins of the stuff all over the counters!

Velda’s English Toffee

1/2 lb. butter                              chocolate chips

1 cup sugar                                  chopped pecans

2 Tbsp. water                              pinch of salt

Put in heavy saucepan.  Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly with wooden spoon until light golden brown.  Pour into buttered 9″ square pan.

Immediately sprinkle 3/4 package of chocolate chips over top.  Let melt a minute and smooth with spatula.  Then, sprinkle with chopped pecans–almost a cup.  Pat lightly to set nuts in chocolate.

When cool, break into pieces with point of a sharp knife.

Enjoy!

This one isn’t sugary sweet, but sweet & feminine–a perfect card for a friend.  There’s something so charming to me about these wonderful vintage ruler prints for trims–as you can see, I’ve used them on both my pieces today–I just love them!

Little bits of this & that…a pretty pink paper rose, lovely crystal-topped pins, a perfect scrap or two of paper left over from other projects–can’t let anything go to waste!  Twine & buttons, ribbons & bows–so much fun to put together!

“Made just for you”, it says…nothing more to say…

So glad you stopped by today!  Wishing you lots of inspiration & happy creating!

Topiary for Tea

Leave a comment

School is back on! Woohoo I love routine. Don’t you?

Today I want to show you a little mini topiary I had made for a coffee date. Just a little something for a centre piece. I love creating little unique things for when friends come for coffee. This one uses bits and pieces from ALL the different paper packs from Vintage Street Market. For me, I ALWAYS save all my leftovers and so it was perfect to use when I made this. Quick and easy, I punched lot’s of different layers of scallops, crunched them up, added some bling and then glued them to the styrofoam ball. Of course, a project isn;t complete unless it has decorative tape around it.

Have fun creating your own little topiary.

Gift box

Hello everyone!

For us June is the month for wrapping up the school year, lot’s of summer parties and birthdays like crazy!!!!! So for me it is a no brainer to sit down with the kids and this fun fun product and create. My kids really love how bright and colourful the papers are. This weekend we have a birthday party and the kids are so excited that the box is big enough for the gift and of course we filled it with extra treats and balloons and other fun kid stuff.

Now, I do scrapbook quite fast and very often. I am always asked how I get so many done and never get stumped. Well the truth is …I DO GET STUMPED. and often. Sometimes I just don’t have a feel for what I want to do with the pictures. HOWEVER, I fall in love with the product all the time, and get really inspired by it. When this happens I just sit down and create a layout with no pictures at all. That was the case for this layout. I loved the Farmer’s kit, and just had to do a layout with fabulous vintage feel. It made me think of the photo I would like in this layout. And immediately I knew I wanted one of my gramma cooking with my kids. It was my favourite memory of when I was little and it wasn’t captured, so I am going to ask gramma for a baking day. CANNOT wait!!!!

As you can see, I left the option for the possibility of horizontal or vertical pics. There is enough room for a collage even. thank you Vintage Street Market for inspiring me with this kit, now off to make memories with my loved ones. I challenge YOU to create a layout without pics, it is very freeing!

Hi Everyone 🙂

We recently had our local Rodeo and they had a Parade through town to celebrate it.  The kids rode in the parade this year and here is a LO of my daughter, getting ready to go for a ride 🙂

The Farmer’s Market Vintage Kit was perfect for this occasion.  The vintage papers against a white background added great contrast and had the perfect elements to match the photo.  I used Vintage Street Market’s Tinted Tape (Aged) around the photo to give the page a distressed look.

I used the vintage raffia Trim that comes in the kit to create this little flower.

Thank you for stopping by the blog today.  Make sure to check back in, for more inspiring ideas from The Vintage Street Market‘s Design Team.
