Vintage Christmas

Recently I bought some wonderful vintage Santa images at a museum gift shop.  
These images are called scrap reliefs, they date back to the Victorian era and are still made today by Mamelock Press from the UK.  The images are so beautiful that all I had to do was cut them out and adhere to the background.

Here's a quick video explaining scrap reliefs. 

Aren't they just beautiful?  The paper they come on is quite thin so I adhered them to a card stock background and then cut them out.

Thanks for dropping by.

Time Keeps on Slipping...

Yesterday in the mail, I received my copy of Paper Crafts Holiday Cards and More-Vol 8.  It's a fabulous issue...and right there on page 12 of this gorgeous issue is this cute, wonderful, simply adorable picture of my girls!  Oh and the Festive Binder Clip project is mine too!!

This is one of my all time favorite pictures of the girls, it was such a fun time...I remember this day like it was yesterday.  Doing their hair, picking out what to wear...and heading outside to capture the perfect moment with snowflakes fluttering by.  This picture, taken over a decade ago, still makes me smile...and makes my heart melt.

This issue of HC & M also made me smile.  I love flipping through the pages, seeing all the amazing projects in there.  I'm not sure how I will do with the digital issues...but time keeps on slipping...and changing, just as my daughters have.  And I too...will keep changing.

Happy Saturday.

Merry Christmas

Time is sure flying by, isn't it?
Here's another Christmas Card...I love it when the patterned paper is so beautiful that not much else is needed on the card.

The paper is Father Christmas from BoBunny, Poinsettia is from K& Co., stamp is from Stampin' UP!
