A Banner Day!

2 Comments | Leave a new comment

With “Love” Month approaching, it’s time to start thinking about those sweet Valentine projects…Shellye with you today to share a quick and easy heart banner and card!

I picked up a package of red heart cut-outs at a local party supply store.  They’re very inexpensive and came in a package of 12… plenty of them to create a nice banner.  The hearts measure 4″, so if you can’t find something similar at your craft or party supply store, then you could try cutting the shapes with a cutting machine or template.

To begin, I took one of the chipboard hearts and used it to trace the shape onto the back of the red foil papersheet found in the Party Games Collection.  Using a tape runner, I attached the foil hearts to the fronts of each red heart.

Next, I used some dark pink letters from my stash to spell out the sentiment :Be Mine.  Again, if you don’t have the size of alphabets that you’d like to use, a cutting machine or those poster stencils would also work just as well 🙂

I freehanded three hearts from the back of the Pretty & Playful paper found in the Family Fun Paper Kit and then attached with foam dots.  Using the small punching element on the Crop-A-Dile, I made two holes at each side of the hearts then tied through some colorful turquoise satin ribbon.  Be sure to leave enough length at the ends so that the banner can be hung through the loops.  This would also make a fun gift for a teacher!

Next up is a card made adorable with one of the punch-out kids and cut-out dress found in the Family Fun Paper Kit.  I always loved dressing paper dolls, so this was a treat!

I started with a plain card that I embossed with a Swiss Dot pattern.  I wanted a lot of the embossed pattern to show, so I kept the card design cropped to one of the medium-sized BINGO Craft Cards.  I simply attached the dressed girl with foam dots over the center.  Next, I added a border of lace trim from my stash.

I trimmed down one of the little labels from the Pink Twirly Twine card and attached it just under the bouquet of flowers.  A small bow of Pink Twirly Twine and the card is complete and ready to send to a friend!

Glad you’ve stopped by today!  I’ve really enjoyed seeing all of the sweet Valentine’s projects brought to us by the Vintage Street Design Team…I hope you do too 😉 ….Shellye… Read the rest

Making A List…

6 Comments | Leave a new comment

Are you ready for the hustle and bustle of the Season ahead?  I should have prefaced that question with the fact that I love to see other people hustle and bustle…I rather prefer sitting behind the computer and ordering online LOL  Free shipping, discounts and without the chaos 🙂  But I really do get that people love the thrill of Black Friday and getting everything on their list…my luck usually doesn’t run in that direction, hence the reason that I will be at home, buying for my three wish-listers:

I created this collage hanging with several of Vintage Street’s “Christmas” aisle items!  First, I started with a sheet of October Afternoon’s Ring-A-Ling Paper and green Bingo Craft Cards.  I made two different panels to get the length that I was wanting.  After machine-stitching the two together, I embellished with a copy of a cute vintage Christmas card that I found on Pinterest.  The photo was wrapped with Ivory Tissue Garland and Denim Twirly Twine.

The top was accented with a beautiful vintage bell…I attached it with a Glue-Dot!

To the bottom I stitched on a few old buttons with the same Denim Twirly Twine and added a border of Numbers Tinted Tape.  Three of the punch out diamond shapes from the Party Games Sheets and Tags were just right for adding my kids’ names to!

And while I had out the Party Game Sheets, I decided to whip up a sweet Christmas card. 

I again used the Ring-A-Ling paper for the base and then topped it off with two glassine envelopes.  To the inside of the envelopes, I added pieces of old sheet music and a scrap of patterned paper.  After machine stitching each one, I added them to the card front.  An X of Red Twirly Twine was stitched at the top and buttons were also stitched on with the same twine.

That’s all from me today!  To our American friends, I hope that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and a safe and successful Black Friday to you all 🙂

Yes, it’s surely Gametime…football Gametime that is!  Shellye here with you to share a quick layout of my middle-son, Zachry playing football.  He went from being second-string quarterback last year to starting at Tight End and Outside Linebacker this year…he’s celebrated quite a few accomplishments at his positions so far this year 🙂

I have to admit that it’s a challenge for me to do boy pages!  Having two boys and only one girl, you’d think that I’d do more LOL  For this layout I’ve used  two sheets  of the Captain Johnny patterned paper from the Family Fun Paper Kit…the back-side pattern and the “gametime” title from the front.

For the title I used Thickers to match the cardstock and then machine stitched them into place.  I glued on a border of Black Twirly Twine…I love the pop that it makes!  I use this technique quite a bit…if you would like to try it on your projects, I suggest that you use a Glue Writing Pen (I like Martha Stewart’s brand).

In finishing, I added a scrap piece of the Captain Johnny paper showcasing the Numbers Tinted Tape (my fave!)  A couple of stars from my stash and spritzing of Mister Huey’s Custard Mist was applied.

The best thing about this layout is that it’s Zachry-Approved!  Thanks for visiting Vintage Street Market today!

For Mom and Dad

Hello, Vintage Lovers!  Shellye here with a couple of Mom & Pop themed projects.  With Mother and Father’s Days coming up soon, I felt inspired to get a couple of those gifting items completed 🙂

First up: For Mom

I created this collage art piece using two 4×4 canvas blocks that I glued together with a strong tack adhesive.  For the base, I used a vintage instruction sheet from a pattern pack, and applied with Mod Podge. I painted the sides of the canvas with an acrylic paint and then wrapped a piece of vintage seam tape around it and tied into a bow at the top.










Next, using acrylic paint and template, I sponged on a little paint to give a distressed look.  I also added rubons around the border, a bit of paper doily, punch out tags from the Dimestore Vogue Collection and sticker sentiments and then covered with Mod Podge. I then spritzed on a bit of walnut ink over the entire surface. After allowing to dry, I began adding my other accents such as the Dimestore Vogue Collection punch-out lady, butterflies that I punched from the punch out sheet of Dimestore Vogue, vintage buttons and flat-back pearl embellishments.























Finally, using a glue pen, I applied a border of Aqua Twirly Twine around the edge of both canvases (continuously).  A vintage crochet flower and tag were added to the top.











Next Up: For Dad

Oh my Daddy is my biggest fan, so I love making stuff with him in mind 🙂  Every card that I’ve made for my parents sit all lined up on a buffet in my mother’s kitchen.  I love the Family Fun Set Paper Kit…it’s the perfect backdrop for so many nostalgic memories.  This particular paper (Distinguished Dad) with the old car reminds me of a photo taken of my dad, along with his parents and siblings, in front of their early 1950’s family car 🙂










For the base, I used “Captain Johnny” patterned paper (from Family Fun) and layered the top with a coordinating sheet of cardstock to act as a mat for the “car” paper.  Of course, I added a little distress ink to the edges and machine stitched the pieces together.  After doing so, I applied a strip of the Numbers Tinted Tape (my FAV of the tinted tapes!) and machine stitched around it…just to lend some additional interest 🙂  I hand-cut the “Father” bottle cap motif and small square photo of father from the Family Fun Envelope Sheet and Distinguished Dad paper.  The ‘happy’ tag from the Party Games Collection was placed at the bottom.  Vintage inspired sticker letters spells out “you’re a classic”.  A bit … Read the rest

Hooray, Easters On Its Way!

With Easter just around the bend and so many bright Spring colors in play around me, I was easily inspired to create some fun cards this week.

I love all things vintage Easter…or as I’ve had to settle for: replica vintage Easter…but it’s all good 🙂  I have several glittered yellow chicks sitting around the house and even an old bunny cake mold on display in my kitchen.  When I spotted these printable ‘post card’ prints at Etsy, I just had to have them!  I thought that they’d be so cute paired up with the lovelies from Vintage Street Market.

After cutting out the selected ‘postcard’, I wrapped a piece of Linen Tinted Tape around the edges (as if the postcard had been removed from an old scrapbook and the tape dog-eared).  I then layered it with a scrap piece of scrapbook paper (from my stash), a light blue Bingo Card, the top part of a Dimestore Vogue Tag and a strip of yellow ruffled crepe from the Party Games Collection.  Next, I added dots of Rose German Glass Glitter to the patterned paper.  I embellished the front of the ‘postcard’ with pearls, paper flowers and leaves (from my stash) and a Pink Twirly Twine bow.  I also added a border of Pink Twirly Twine around the perimeter of the card.

Nothing says Happy Birthday like a big ‘ole bright card!  I adore the nostalgic motifs of the Party Games Collection…it takes me back to a time when pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey was the thing to do at parties 🙂

I used the cute tag and hand-cut the banner from the Party Games Collection.  I machine stitched the Red Bingo Card onto a piece of Maggie Jane Family Fun paper.  I attached the ‘banner’ to the card front with foam dots, then strung a piece of Red Twirly Twine across the top.  Three dotted button gives it just the right amount of dimension and personality 🙂

See you next time…enjoy!
