Vintage photo slides

 




Hi lovelies, hope you are keeping well! Today I am sharing some vintage slides and picture wheels that I have created.








I have used these darling images from Taylor made cards 4 u ... so cute! 






Here I have used kraft cardstock along with the Tim Holtz picture wheel die and Sam Poole's photo slide die. 






I have created some pockets for the picture wheels using kraft cardstock also.





I have decorated both pockets and picture wheels using vintage book pages, number cards and my own designer postage stamps.  


Thanks so much for visiting the Fairy Den!

Vintage stamps.... oh my!





Hello lovelies, hope you are well! It's such a dark, rainy day here in the UK where I live... a perfect time to create!  


I have such a love for really old, vintage and antique rubber stamps and have started to collect them! Here are some photos of my little collection. I am always on the lookout for more and it's quite exciting as I always come across other vintage items to salvage and give a good, loving home to! 











This particular one is a French antique and from the early 1900's.... heaven! 
I have also created some little vintage inspired Matchbooks, which I decorated with a paper collage of vintage book pages and postal stamps that I designed myself. 
I have also added wax seals and bakers twine as a  closure. 






For the inside of the matchbooks, I have added a small stack of printer paper with quotes. 





I have also decorated the back of the matchbooks' with vintage papers and ephemera. 


Thanks so much for stopping by the Den! I really appreciate your visit.

Vintage mini booklet




Hello lovelies, hope you are keeping well! Today I am sharing a recent make that I created. A vintage mini booklet using beautiful papers and stunning images from Paper Whimsy. 











Here I have used a folded pocket metal die to create my booklet. 






I have also made some mini tags to fit inside the pockets. 




 I have used washi tape, stamps and ruler ephemera to decorate. 


Thanks so much for stopping by the Den!
