Vintage Inspired Dream Big Altered Journal

Recently I have been on a vintage altering phase and it has led to some really interesting things to make. After thumbing through numerous magazines and books, I decided to create my own "vintage-inspired" notebook. I sewed the pages into the book and then sewed the outer cover and back to the pages. I used various fibers to basically circle the entire book. Using various alphabet looks and shapes I added the word: Thought. I used a Tim Holtz Secret Key and some K& Co. stickers and embellies. Love how the book turned out.

"Adore" Cricut 16"x20" Wall Art

Using my beloved Cricut, I used the heirloom cartridge and cut a tree, the chandelier, a bird and the word Adore. Using some Tim Holtz distressing paint (Linen) I painted a 16"x20" blank canvas and then used modge podge to attach the cut outs. Love how the contrast looks in my living room.

Vintage Inspired ATC Cards

ArtI am currently in a swap on the Cricut MB which is entitled: Vintage Swap With A Twist. I finished all my items by the due date of October 15. Our hostess is and was very busy trying to get all the items done and organized and we ended up having one flaker in a few groups. I asked her if she needed an "angel," and she did. I needed to create more ATC's (Artist Trading Cards) that were vintage inspired. So, here are more Vintage Inspired ATC's. The ATC's that read: When I was just a little girl and I asked my mother what will I be, Will I be pretty, will I be rich... Those were lyrics from a song sung by Doris Day entitled "Que, Sera." With the baby ATC's I used a paper butterfly and attached it to the back of the baby and cut the baby out of the picture and sat her on the bird.

Altered Vintage Halloween Tags

Last night, I was pondering over the idea of what to send to each group member of the Halloween ITT's. I wanted to make something special, and decided on Halloween Tags. They may all look the same but no two are alike. I used various fibers, a MS punch, Grunge paper, Feathers, and bling. Please enjoy!
