Port Vintage Vogue

Photobucket

Climb aboard the Occasions Mini Catty Cruise! Make sure to visit each port where my talented crew mates are showcasing some wonderful projects using their favorite stamps and accessories from the Occasions Mini. I am delighted to share the projects I created using my favorite new set...Vintage Vogue.
Vintage Friend Card & Pillow Box
This card with the matching Pillow Box favor uses the matching jumbo wheel called Very Vintage. This wheel has so much detail, I just love it! The center of the flowers are adorned with the new Chocolate Chip Epoxy Brads. I also used the Scallop Trim Border punch available for free during Sale~A~Bration and Pretty In Pink Satin ribbon on the Pillow Box. The new 5/8" Satin Ribbon is so soft and easy to work with and it's available in 9 colors in the Occasions Mini.
Vintage Medallion Card
When I first saw the Vintage Vogue set I couldn't wait to try it with the Medallion Background stamp. For this one I used a color combo that I hadn't used in a while: Sage Shadow, Close to Cocoa and Blush Blossom...these colors have a very vintage feel to me. I stamped the Medallion three times and cut the centers from two and adhered them with dimensionals . The center of the flower is a pearl from the Pretties Kit. I saved my favorite project for last...
Framed Friends Page
This is an 8x8 scrapbook page that I created for a shadowbox frame. I used a small monotone print from the Bella Blue paper pack for my background. The print adds interest, yet doesn't over power the stamped images. This is a great stamp set for scrapping! I need to get busy and scrap the other photos I took during this weekend trip with friends touring the wine country in Northern Michigan.

I took the photo above before I inserted the page into the shadowbox frame because I figured the glare from the glass would make taking a good photo nearly impossible. Here's what it looks like framed.
I hope you like the projects I've shown you using this versatile set. Please cruise on to the next port where Becky Roberts is going to "tote-ally" blow you out of the water with her fantastic projects using the stamp set Tote-ally Tess!
