Sunday Swing & Halloween Bling

Yesterday was my turn at the blog of 

I love the new papers that can be found under the “Garden” section 
of the Vintage Street Market Shop.  
I paired up the pretty print, Engraved Garden by K&CO with the
…I think it coordinates beautifully!

 I also used an Olive Paper Bloom by Kaisercraft, as well as a couple of paper 
blooms from my stash.  I slipped in a scrap of paper behind two of the
 Metal Label Holders and used the Making Memories Alpha Stickers to play out my description. 
 The sweet vintage-inspired cut-out cherubs sheet can also be found HERE at VSM!

I used a couple of different sizes from the Lifestyle Crafts Lace Nesting Dies
 to give the layout more interest, texture…and plus I just think they’re fun!
 A couple of old buttons, chip letters and some twine from my stash completes the page.

 Halloween fun ALERT! 
 Let me say that I have had sooo much fun crafting with the assortment
of vintagey Halloween goodies from Vintage Street!
  I adore anything that replicates the Halloweens of yesteryear…
the Happy Haunting- Halloween Greetings from Graphic 45?
 Just perfect for making-up cool little wall-hangings or tree ornaments
 or gift tags…lots of possibilities!
For the base, I used a chipboard page from a Maya Road album,
 painted it black and then glittered.  I added the cut-out with foam tape
and then trimmed it with aqua tinsel.
 I found a few fabric flowers in my stash and added those to the bottom,
 along with a couple of vintage tickets hosting “Happy Halloween” using
Making Memories Alpha Stickers.  For the hanger, just string through a bit
of black twill and you’re set!

I have a few more close-up photos up at the
Vintage Street Market Blog.
If you love vintage, then you'll love Vintage Street!

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
