Vintage style birthday card

Hello paper crafters!  Today I want to share a vintage styled card I designed using images from 2 stamp sets from Pink Persimmon "Society Lady" and another recently released set "Postal Stamps".  "Society Lady"  is from the Antiquated line.  It includes a lot of vintage images.  I recently purchased some 8 x 8 mini-album pages and other accesories from the "Documented" line by Simple Stories.  Combined with the Antiquated line of images, I think I will be able to create a nice little album using some really old black and white photo's.  I don't have all the sets yet, but once I get them and it's all done, I will share.  I am completely addicted to Cheery Lynn Designs "French Doily".  I love the look I get when I cut from tissue paper and then spray it with inks.  

I'm off to work and then grocery shopping for the rest of my Thanksgiving meal ingredients!  I will be missing my daughter this year.  But I"m soooo thankful to have my son and his girlfriend.  I love the time we spend together cooking in the kitchen, listening to Christmas music,  and then decorating the tree's.  Did I mention I'm in love with his girlfriend.  She is so sweet .... and she likes to craft!  We spent the day together last wednesday and I really enjoyed it.  

Check out Pink Persimmon stamps HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today ....  and in case I don't get a chance to post again this week .... 
Happy Thanksgiving!!
hugs, Melisa

Hello paper crafters!  Today I'm sharing a layout designed with a photo of my in-laws, Chris and Fred Waldorf.  Married 48 years!  You don't hear that very often these days.  2 very special people with hearts that overflow with love, kindness, and the spirit of giving.  They are a blessing to all of us!

My Mind's Eye Layout "The Sweetest Thing"

Hello stamper's.  Today I'm sharing a layout designed for this month's challenge over on the My Mind's Eye blog.  The October challenge is to use stamps.  You can check out the challenge HERE.

All the paper products / embellishments used are from the "The Sweetest Thing" collection.  I used doily stamps from the "Stella and Rose - Gertie" Collection by My Mind's Eye.

I used dies for the butterflies (Spellbinders) and buttons (Cheery Lynn Designs) as well.  I added texture using the burlap (Joann's Craft Store) and crocheted lace.  This layout would not have been the same without the burlap.  It really finished it off.  

These photo's are of my daughter from way back in 2002.  Wow how time flies.

Hope you are inspired to get those photo's out and scrapbook!

B-Line Designs - Gettin' Shabby!

I ADORE B-Line Designs stamps.  They are some of the most wonderful vintage stamps I have ever seen!  Unfortunately they do not have an online store, so you have to find somewhere that sells them online, or get your local store to order them.  I think she attends stamp shows as well.  The only online store I"m aware of that sells them is  If you know of somewhere, let me know.  My local store is 50 min. away so ordering more from them would be a little out of my way.  Luckily I have a stash of them.  A stamp store in Jacksonville, FL carries them so when we lived there I purchased a few.

The dog / sentiment above and bears / sentiment below are available on page 5 of their "Pick Me Up" catalog (just in case you want to get them ordered in)

You can view all of their catalogs at their web site HERE.  They are a little slow to download, but worth the wait.



Little Red Wagon (wed) - animals
Stampavie (wed) - button and bow
Stampin' for the Weekend  (fri) - monochromatic

Shabby Tearoom (mon) - photo inspiration

Mad for Markers (monthly) - anything goes
Charisma Cards (thur) - monochromatic
Sugar Creek Hollow (sat) - family (bear family)
A Gem of a Challenge (sat) - animals or teddy bears

Pink Persimmon Card and Artist Trading Card

On the card above I used "Sweetheart Silk Card" with "Vintage Greetings".  Combine these great vintage images with a few dies and you can put this card together quick.  The dies are Quickutz (buttons / flowers on dress form), Cheery Lynn (doily) and Spellbinders (dress form).  

All of these newly released images are all about 2.5 x 3.5.  Perfect for ATC's as long as you don't want a border.  The edges of the of the Baby Pearls measures 2.5" x 3.5".  There is a small amount of space around  the edges of  the images for Men's Buttons, Mermaid Pearls, Sweetheart Silk Card, and Happy Girl.  The Mini Bingo Card measure 2 5/8" x 3 5/8".  So if you used it for an ATC, you would trim away some of the solid border.   And of course the are perfect size for cardmaking and scrapbooking.  I love how Mermaid Pearls, Baby Pearls, and Happy Girl have those little boxes perfect for journaling, well at least for those of you who like your own handwriting.  I can tell you I don't like mine and what I would do is type it up, then cut the center of the boxes out creating a little window and then lay the image over my typed journaling.

So what do you think??  
When you look at the images, what type projects do you start dreaming up??

Speaking of ATC's ...

2.5" x 3.5" Artist Trading Card

Not really an ATC person??   
Well, do what I"m going to do with this one .....  put it on the front of a card.  I will share it again later when it's all done.  I couldn't resist creating it when I seen the banner challenge over at "Fun with ATC's".  They post challenges every 2 weeks so you still have time to enter if you like creating ATC's.  I used "Small Banner Set" and the birds and sentiments from "Singing Birds".

Well that's it for today.  Hopefully very soon I will be finishing up some more Mixed Media projects and scrapbook layouts to share!

Check out Pink Persimmon stamps HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
