Vintage Valentines

I've been having fun playing with the gorgeous Vintage Valentine papers from Fancy Pants. I love the way these designs coordinate and I thought I'd share a couple of projects I've done so far. First I made a little photo wallet which I'll be offering as both a class and a kit in February. The photos show the basic design without pics or embellishments. We'll make two of these in to keep and one to give away! The second item is a tag booklet I found on Papercraft Planet. Susanna Boyd designed the album as a Christmas tag book and hers was just gorgeous. I've modified her design a bit and made a Valentine tag book. The book holds 8 tags and I used 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 pieces of cardstock for the tags which is Artist Trading Card size. I just played around with some basic techniques on each card and it was so much fun to make. You could also use this to hold wallet size photos! The book stands alone for display, but I made a little belly band to hold it closed too. Yesterday I made a little chipboard coaster book using the leftover scraps from these two projects. I can't believe how much mileage I got from a few pieces of paper! I'll post pics of the coaster book as soon as I take!
There are some great bargains on paper in the store right now...a whole rack of gorgeous papers including some Basic Gray Eskimo Kisses for just 75 cents a sheet!
There are also a few fabulous Christmas embellishments priced to sell quickly at 40% off so be sure to stop in before they disappear!
