Bookmark using vintage sheet music.

Started with sheet music that is approximately 100 years old and glued it onto card stock. Stamped then painted the purple butterfly before running through Cuttlebug to emboss both layers. Made my own beaded tassel. If you would like the purple background please visit my other blog: RUSTIC PIXEL BACKGROUNDS

Tuft stitched rose and pom pom lavender filled sachet.

I used some vintage linen to make this lavender filled sachet. It was the first time I tried the tuft stitching. Something different!

Crazy quilt vintage papers Journal Cover labelled Far Away.

I used vintage papers (approximately 100 years old) to create this patchwork look. Covered it with a coat of soft gold and while still wet stamped with one of my background stamps. The black ribbon finishes it off as does the little stamped heart etc. I will find it hard to give away! CLICK ON IMAGE TO SEE MORE DETAILS.

Textured die cut image transfer card.

Oh how I love making these. I upcycled part of an old greeting card. Started by making an image transfer (hence the obscure look which I love). I then used my Cuttlebug die cut and placed it over the top of one of my Cuttlebug textures. I use these as blank note cards. I also often bundle six together and tie with a ribbon and place in one of my gift boxes.
