Hello everyone!  Heidi, here today and I have a card to share with you using paper from the Family Fun Set Paper Kit Meghan Kay Paper, tags from Dimestore Vogue Paper Sheets & Tags and some fun embellishments.

For the card base I used pink lemonade cardstock.  Then I used the pink pattern paper from Family Fun Set Paper Kit Meghan Kay Paper and Sheet Music along with the S5-131 A2 Matting Basics A and S5-132 A2 Matting Basics B die templates to create the matts.  Then I added the pink oval die cut, tag and tickets using 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

For the top part of the card I added some crochet lace trim and pink ric rac from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Then I added the Making Memories Garment Pin with a gem drop and some pearls.

For the bottom part of the card I added a blue crochet flower, pink mulberry flowers, buttons and some pearls.

Thinking of you Always Card

Leave a comment

Hello everyone!  Heidi here today and I have a card to share with you using several of the products from Vintage Street Market.

The pattern paper is from Life’s Journey-Layered Script by K & Company.  I love the soft browns and ivory in this paper with the script print.  At the top I added a Vintage Carnival Ticket along with another vintage ticket.  Then I added the Attic Treasures Mini Flash Card.  I used 3D Form Squares on the back of the mini flash card to add a little dimension.

Next I added a handmade flower and a handmade stickpin.  I added a Light Blue Paper Rose to the center of the flower and then I added a little Diamond Stickles for some sparkle.  To finish off the card I added an aqua seam binding bow.

Happy Easter Sweet Treats

1 Comment | Leave a new comment

Hello everyone!  Heidi, here today and I have a sweet little treat to share with you.

 Easter is right around the corner and I altered a clear box and added some pastel M&M’s for a perfect little gift.  I wrapped the clear box with light blue seam binding and small rosette trim.  Then I fussy cut the card with the little lamb from the Crate Paper Little Boy Blue paper collection and I added some fruit punch stickles to the bow.  Then I added a pink paper flower with some stickles, a vintage button and Pink Twirly Twine.

Next I added a light blue seam binding bow and a handmade stickpin.

Then I fussy cut one of the tags from the Pink Twirly Twine packet.  To create the second tag I used the pink pattern paper from the Dimestore Vogue Paper Sheets & Tags collection and then I added the tiny alpha stickers to spell Easter.

Thank you so much for stopping by the Vintage Street Market Blog today!

I hope you have a wonderful day!

Hugs,

Heidi

Vintage Valentine

2 Comments | Leave a new comment

Hello, Heidi here today and I have a couple of Valentine cards to share with you using some of the wonderful VSM products.

Here is the first card that I designed.  I used one of the Bingo Craft Cards for the background.  I added a piece of a paper doily in the bottom corner and stamped a sentiment.  Then I inked the edges for the Bingo Craft Card and added the ribbon.  Using one of the Making Memories Garment Pins I added a Making Memories Chandelier Beads Noel and pinned that to the ribbon.

Next I used a mini heart punch to punch out some hearts with the red foil from the Party Games Paper Sheets & Tags collection.  I glued the red foil hearts in place, added the lady die cut and the peral heart.

To finish off the card I added some cotton candy Stickles to the dress, hat and shoes on the lady die cut.

This is the second card that I designed and for this one I used a sweet vintage Valentine image from the The Graphics Fairy.

I used die templates from Spellbinders to create all of the die cuts and then I layered them using 3D foam squares in between the layers.  For the background I used some of the red foil from the Party Games Paper Sheets & Tags collection.  I love this red foil!  It can be used for so many different occassions.

To finish of the card I added mulberry paper roses and then for a little sparkle I added Ranger Icicle Stickles to the image and the roses.

Christmas Box of Chocolates and Santa Tags

4 Comments | Leave a new comment

Hello, Heidi here.  Today, I have a couple of fun Christmas projects to share with you using some of the wonderful products from Vintage Street Market.

The first project is a little box of chocolates that I altered for the Christmas holiday.  I know this is the time of year when it seems like we need so many little gifts or just a little something to give someone to brighten their day or let them know we are thinking of them.    You can take thing such as a little box of candy and dress them up a bit and it just makes it a little more special.

Here is a before picture of the box of chocolates.

I covered the top of the box with Jenni Bowlin Holly Stripe paper.  Then I added a little bit of Ranger Diamond Stikles to the holly leaves and berries.  I added Red/White Twill Stripes ribbon from May Arts around the outer edge of the box and also used it to make a bow for the top of the box.  I used one of the Vintage Carnival Ticket and Vintage Christmas Labels to make a little tag.  I also added Ranger Diamond Stikles to the Christmas tree label.  I used Red Twirly Twine to attach the tag to the bow.  With just a few supplies I was able to turn a simple box of chocolates into a pretty little Christmas box of chocolate.

For my second projects I designed some Christmas Santa tags to hang on gift bags.

To make the Santa tags I used Cosmo Cricket Dear Mr. Claus and Crate Paper Peppermint Collection St. Nick papers.  I punched a hole in each of the smaller tags and attached a Making Memories Garment Pins with a jingle bell and some Red Twirly Twine.  Then at the top of the tag I added Red/White Twill Stripes ribbon from May Arts with a Star Burst Brad.  I also added some Ranger Diamond Stickles to Santa’s hat and coat for a little bit of sparkle.
