Vintage Trio

I'm delighted to share with you the final piece by Guest Artist Electra.  She created a lovely trio of ATCs using stamps from Studio 490 and Tim Holtz - Stampers Anonymous using the my Vintage Gentleman Kit.

 

My Etsy Store is currently on vacation because so am I!  But you can purchase this kit and more vintage book pages and ephemera when I return on August 5.  And don't forget to enter the Vintage Gentleman Challenge for a chance to win at $25 gift certificate!

More Old Fashioned Inspiration

I have some more inspiring artwork to share with you today.  Guest Artist Electra created this stunning book with the Vintage Page Gentleman Kit and the Neutral Seam Binding.  Each of the gentleman kits contains a cabinet card, and Electra used hers as the focal point of this journal.


 Here's a couple of detail shots - check out those great paper beads!

Vintage Page Gentleman Kit

Happy weekend everyone!  I'm excited to say that I finally got the new Vintage Page Gentleman Kit into the store today.  It's one of those projects that taken way longer than it should have done.


I really love this kit because it includes so many cool pieces of vintage ephemera - each one is so unique.  Here's some of the items they include:
  • Handwritten check stubs and checks from the 1890's
  • A cabinet card
  • Vintage train ephemera, such as a baggage report and time card
  • Blank ledger pages
  • Pages from an old baseball magazine
  • Pages from a steam engine book with lots of technical drawings
  • Pages from a gentleman's magazine with lots of lovely illustrations

    And to kick things off, Cathy Calamas has created a charming tag with the kit and the neutral seam binding.  I love it!

    Vintage Gentleman's Challenge

    Good morning!  I will be launching a new Vintage Page kit this week and to celebrate I have another challenge for you....

    G e n t l e m e n

    Your gentleman themed challenge piece can take any form - an ATC, card, scrapbook or journal page or 3d item.  And you can use any media - paper, fabric, stamps, ink, paint etc.  Go to town and have fun.  Post your creation here by July 31, 2012 and I will randomly draw 1 lucky winner, who will receive a $25 gift certificate to the Vintage Page Store.  Please include a direct link to your post and a link back to this challenge.

    I'm excited to showcase the work of two designers this month - Cathy Calamas of A Surcee Life and Electra from Wishin I Knew How to Blog.  Their work is amazing and I'm sure you'll enjoy their work as much as I do.  They both used the new Vintage Page Gentleman Kit.

    Cathy created this lovely altered cigar box for her husband:
