Hey all! Amy here and I am back as promised with an altered Easter project to share. I started with a vintage ice cream cup and then began building.
I added tissue paper garland around the edges then layered tinsel garland with aqua Twirly Twine on top. Next I used May Arts red twill stripes ribbon to make a bow and then added two paper flowers. I added a vintage bingo marker for the center.
For the banner, I painted wooden skewers and attached handmade finials from beads. I tied aqua Twirly Twine to the skewers and then added three red foil triangles from Party Games Paper Sheets and Tags. Next, I punched holes in a fare ticket stub and added to the right skewer. I then used a sticker sentiment backed on a Jillibean pattern paper. I attached the skewers to the inside of the cup with tape.
I love the way it came out and especially like that it is not the traditional colors of Spring. I challenged myself with that for a bit. Finally I filled my cup with a little Easter grass and a pale blue egg. I think these cups are perfect for birthdays, other holidays, or even a special pick me up. I hope this inspires you!

Hard to believe that February is done and St Patrick’s Day and Easter are just around the corner!
For my projects this month, I played with the Retro Party Games paper pack, with some other great items from the Vintage Street Market Store. I was feeling a little artsy this month, so I made a quick card and an art journal page.
Let’s talk about the card first. For some reason, this froggie reminds me of St. Patrick’s Day! In this card, he is used to wish the recipient a “hoppy” happy birthday. This paper pack really reminds me of the fun party games that were available when I was a child.
- Green Card Stock 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches, folded in half to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base
- Party Games Paper Orange Dot 4 x 5 1/4″
- Frog, Happy Tag and Arrow all from the Party Games Pack
- Tiny Alphas (one of my all time favorite scrappy supplies)
- Cellophane Tie (vintage)
Now on to the art journal page!
I was looking for a bright, fresh and totally fun theme.
To prepare this page, I prepped my art journal page with gesso and added layers of paint in: gecko, luscious lemon, and pumpkin. I added texture by adding a stenciled hexagon design with chalk ink. Once this was dry the fun began! I used Mod Podge to adhere the Party games papers, including several yellow crepe paper hearts for even more texture. The phrases came from a Cosmo Cricket paper, available in the Vintage Street Market store. When everything was dry, I used some tinted tape for more interest and added doodling here and there, (including the monkey’s tail). I also stamped the brick pattern in red and some words faintly along the border. Eventually, I will add my thoughts below each of the phrases.

Happy February to you! I know Valentine’s Day was a few days ago, but I am still in the heart mood so today’s projects have a heart on them.
I started with a mini album. I die cut a large scallop heart from chipboard and covered with pattern paper. I painted and inked the edges for a distressed look. I turned the heart upside down and scored the point of the heart to make into an album.
For the front, I cut an oval in the glassine bag and then added a manila tag to tuck inside. I punched a heart from the stripe print and added the vintage dictionary paper behind it. I then inked a small bingo card and cut a sentiment from the pattern paper for the top. The tiny heart in the center is the red foil from the Party Games that I punched out. I added a button with Twirly Twine and a few rhinestones to complete.
I added six pages inside using the “Stack the Deck” technique. I added Velcro tabs to secure the album.
For the pages, I added various pattern papers listed below along with a fabric scraps. I continued the tiny sentiment theme inside on each page. I also added Soot Tinted Tape on many of the pages.
For the inside cover, I painted, distressed, and stamped a heart. I outlined the hearts with black marker.

- Red Twirly Twine by Vintage Street Market
- Bingo Cards by Vitange Street Market

- Various Fabric scraps
Next I made a card. I stitched many layers together to create this. I punched a heart from the bingo card and layered a pattern print behind. I layered with a decorative button tied with Twirly Twine and accented with a red pearl. I cut the tiny sentiment from the pattern paper and added to a journal tab.
