What's not to love about the new Vintage Ephemera kit, launched on Create & Craft TV earlier this month? A splash of pastel colour tints, a whiff of Parisian elegance, gorgeous illustrations and enough elements to mix and match to your heart's content. I was privileged to see the original sketches by Steph on a recent visit to CWC HQ, and I can confirm I have professional jealousy! Here are the samples I made for the show, kicking off with a mini-print tray makeover:
I painted the frame black and covered the back with the papers before assembling the rest of the frame. Then it was just a matter of adding elements using glue and foam pads.
Next up, some of the kraft crates.
Ever felt you'd missed out on a card style when it first came round?
I recently came across the concept of a 'spring' card, and decided to make some of my own. They fold flat for inserting into the envelope and then spring up, easel card style, when pulled out.
And last, but not least, some 6x6" cards combining all the parts of the kit:
If you'd like any making tips, or have any other questions or comments, pop them in the box below.
Don't forget that the half term fun starts on Monday, and I have made a sample for my project which will be part of the prizes to be given away to our younger crafters :)
Until then - happy crafting!
