One of my visits at the Winter CHA has been to the Vintage Street Market booth – I had discovered them a couple months ago in the www and subsribed to their amazing blog not even realising for a long time that the two owners are the wonderful Allison and Michelle – who I know for a bit :)
Their booth was really amazing – a real eyecatcher – and I love the concept of their Products. Not only Vintage themed, no you can use their products for Scrapbooking AND Giftwrapping AND Homedecor. Seriously fun!!!
I have been so lucky that they gave me a pack of their Dimestore Vogue Kit and I had a blast playing a bit with it.
The kit will come with
-Two 24″x36″ decorative printed paper sheets
-One 24″x36″ aqua foil sheet
-One 24″x36″ brown crepe sheet
-One 12″x12″ sheet of coloful Tags & Things-decorative die cut embellishments
and I have to admit at first I was a bit stunned at how to work with a 24″x36″ piece of paper – well…no problem. You can easly cut the piece with your paper cutters in individuell 12″x12″ pieces- but the beauty is that you can also use the bigger pieces to wrap up presents or work on bigger projects. I have always been trying to use my scrapbooking papers for gift wrapping- but they were either to sturdy and/or to small for most gifts. So this rocks.
I also love the huge foil and crepe paper sheet coming with the kit – I see a lot of other fun things created with them.
I also love that the package itself is really cute and the whole thing about Vintage Street Market is also sharing Memories and fun facts about Vintage related things.
I created the flower with the Aqua Foil.
For this card I used the die cut girl and tag from the Die Cut Sheet. The Background was created with the a fun technique using Letraset Promarkers, Ranger’s Blending Solution and the beautiful stamp by La Blanche on the also really cool LaBlanche Keramikpaper.
And the best…there is still so much left from the kit- that I can play even more ! Love it- check them out!
I’m off to head to our ScrapJause Mixed Media Workshop Event – see you soon :)
