Fabric Bookmarks

I made these bookmarks using scraps leftover from other projects. They were published in the recent Create: Vintage magazine.

The white fabric is the hem from an old tablecloth that I used for a couple of upholstery projects. Then I added old lace/crochet trim, scraps of paper coated in Ice Resin, some fancy stitching, and vintage flowers. I added an eyelet to the top of each and added ribbon or fibers to finish them off.

Believe ATC

Another project published in the recent Create: Vintage magazine. I made this ATC using a variety of scraps and an image from a vintage postcard.

I added glittered butterfly wings and paper hats to turn her into a fairy. The frame stamps are from Recollections.

Ancestors

This mini album was recently published in the Create: Vintage magazine.

I combined pages from two Melissa Frances chipboard albums I had in my stash, and overly embellished each page to create an old, collected feel for the book.

On the cover, I used old lace trim, a crochet doily, vintage millinery flowers, and other embellishments to set the tone.

On the inside pages, I added old family photos with a little history about each person. This is my mom as a baby.

And my dad:

I found photos of ancestors through distant cousins online and from ancestry.com. This was my great-grandfather, whom my father never even met, nor did we know (until last year) that he was buried in my hometown where my family still lives.

Another great-great-grandfather, who served in Civil War...

Create Vintage Projects

I had a total of 10 projects published in the recent Create: Vintage magazine. Here are some of the cards.

It’s a Beautiful Life uses beautiful papers from Bo Bunny, Crate Paper, Melissa Frances, and Webster’s Pages to create a soft color palette. I added a Crate Paper chipboard flower that I embellished with pearls and paper leaves.

Just for You uses a kraft recipe card that I bought in the Michaels dollar bins. I added a vintage doily and image, punch scalloped circles from some scraps, and added a sentiment sticker from Cosmo Cricket.

Three Horn Salute is one of my favorites. I love this pink polka paper from My Mind’s Eye. I used the colors in the vintage postcard to set the palette. A cluster of embellishments finishes this card.

Lessons

This past Saturday, I taught my first class at The Crafty Scrapper. We had a great time and I’m looking forward to teaching again. Just have to come up with my next project.

I have a few projects in progress, so nothing new to share until I manage to get something finished! However, I can share a card that was recently published in the Create Vintage magazine. This card uses a combination of patterned papers and a beautiful image from Crafty Secrets.

I also used some Glimmer Mist to dye the seam binding bow, and added a stitched border around each layer of paper.
