I love being part of the Creative Cutter Room Design Team!! I Was so excited and honored to find out we would be sponsored from Graphic 45!!
Have you seen the amazing papers they have?? They specialize in vintage crafting supplies representing the 1920's and 30's!
I am working with the Playtimes Past Collection. This amazing paper is two sided, has amazing color and cuts like butter! And the best part is, I have had a stash of vintage embellishments just sitting around waiting for the perfect paper! And here it is!
For my first card I used the Tinker Toys Paper, also known as Connect the Dots.
Front and back of Connect the Dots.
Cut circles of chipboard and paper using the Cricut
Adhered circles of paper to the chipboard
Punched a hole in the center using my Crop-A-Dile
Added a brad
Using opposite side of the paper, punched holes
threaded Martha Stewart Twine through.
Using toothpicks I adhered the three tinker toy circles together.
The next paper I used was Dollie's Teaparty.
When I first saw this paper the first words that I thought of was "I remember when..." My sister and I used to play with these paper dolls!
PaperDoll Dress up to make the little girls
Peachy Keen faces and hand cut these adorable dresses.
Circle punch to punch the circles with the tea cup and flower.
The back side of this adorable paper is the black with super cute flowers!
Perfect for the background.
Distressed the edges of all the papers with Tim Holtz distressing Inks.
Here is my favorite!
