Old Fashioned Sampler

Jan 18, 2012

One item I always have to stop and admire when stum­bled upon in antique stores and flea mar­kets are vin­tage sam­plers. Each stitch is so lov­ing­ly placed and framed for all to see. I find them to be such an inspir­ing piece of art. These such items were the inspi­ra­tion for the project I’m show­ing sneak peeks of today. Once the offi­cial Maya Road sneak peeks begin (I’ve heard Thurs­day is the day… fin­gers crossed) I’ll show the entire piece. Car­o­line is tor­tur­ing us with this wait but it will be worth it… promise. The design team has cre­at­ed some amaz­ing projects.

This Square Chip­board Foun­da­tions piece is cov­ered with vin­tage ledger paper and stamped with the Anti­quat­ed Col­lec­tion Per­fumery stamps. I accent­ed the square using Maya Road skin­ny spools and white pearl flower pins.

Here is a Square Chip­board Foun­da­tions piece cov­ered with vin­tage ledger paper and stamped using the Anti­quat­ed Col­lec­tion Dr. Warn­er’s Corset ATC stamp. I accent­ed the square using a Maya Road “love” chip­board piece from their words mini chip­board set that was altered using their bright sil­ver 1″ ink pad and sil­ver glit­ter.

These Rec­tan­gle Foun­da­tion Chip­board pieces are cov­ered with vin­tage ledger paper and sheet music and accent­ed with an altered Maya Road vin­tage wood ruler, some alter­able wood­en but­tons, mini met­al bot­tle caps and brown and cream resin blos­soms.

And the last of this sam­plers sneak peek shows a square and rec­tan­gle Foun­da­tions Chip­board piece cov­ered with vin­tage ledger paper and sheet music. I stamped the rec­tan­gle using the Anti­quat­ed Col­lec­tion Styl­ish and Fash­ion­able lady stamp and accent­ed the square with an altered Maya Road “wing” from the wings & hearts mini chip­board set using a bright sliv­er 1″ ink pad and sil­ver glit­ter. I topped off the altered wing with a wood­en alter­able but­ton.

That’s all I can show for today, I’m off to start pack­ing projects to ship to CHA. I love the but­ter­fly feel­ing of excite­ment I get  right about now… I love all the hus­tle and bus­tle of CHA. It’s loads of work but is so awe­some to see friends from all over the world and demo super awe­some make n takes. Car­o­line has put togeth­er some real­ly fun ones for Maya Road. It’s going to be fun at the demo table for sure. See ya there.

And if any­one read­ing this blog post is from Som­er­set Stu­dio, I real­ly would like to start writ­ing arti­cles for your mag­a­zine.
