Happy Card Make’N Take Tutorial

Feb 27, 2015

Sor­ry I don’t have a big­ger pho­to of this card but it was so pop­u­lar dur­ing the Scrap­book Expo Grapevine event that I thought I would share the tuto­r­i­al to cre­ate your own card.

Recycle All Those Saved Christmas & Holiday Cards

Dec 10, 2014

In keep­ing with the “I’m using what I have for Christ­mas and cut­ting out the need­less things I don’t” I recy­cled some saved Christ­mas cards and cre­at­ed two super easy gift card hold­ers from one Christ­mas card. I know I’m not the only per­son that saves hol­i­day cards. I can­not throw Christ­mas cards of any kind away. I love them all and espe­cial­ly cher­ish the ones that have my grand­par­ents sig­na­tures inside. I start­ed with a Christ­mas card that mea­sured 4″ x 5.75″ but you can use any card size you want. This size just allowed me to keep the entire image with­out hav­ing to cut it down to fit a gift card. My com­plet­ed gift card hold­ers mea­sure 2.75″ x 4″. Once you have your card picked out and if you’re like me and save all your Christ­mas cards...

Altered Art Journal ATC 1

Aug 25, 2014

I was so super hap­py when I dis­cov­ered (which is what hap­pens when you clean areas of your stu­dio, you dis­cov­er things) I had a set of 6″ x 8″ pock­et pages that fit inside my art jour­nal. Since these pock­et pages are a vari­ety pack I have sev­er­al dif­fer­ent sized pock­ets that are per­fect to add dif­fer­ent sized art pieces into my jour­nal. Yes, I’m hap­py. So once I dis­cov­ered I had more options for my art jour­nal I decid­ed to cre­ate a small ATC type piece to put into one of the pock­et pages. This card mea­sures 2.75″ x 4″ so it is a bit off in mea­sure­ments for a tra­di­tion­al ATC which is 2.5″ x 3.5″.  The base of the card is from a por­tion of the left over post­card I had from my first...

Handmade Art Journal

Aug 21, 2014

I real­ly love see­ing all the amaz­ing art jour­nal­ing that lots of my friends do but I have issues, like seri­ous issues when it comes to the jour­nals. I love dimen­sion­al col­lage which means, I like to stick LOTS of bulky things in my art. Well, this does not work well with a lot of art jour­nals due to the type of bind­ing most have so the prob­lem was solved this week by cre­at­ing my own art jour­nal. Now I can add all the bulky items I want and the art jour­nal will still close. The thick­er my art jour­nal gets is no big­gie because all I need to do is use larg­er binder rings. Even though I’ve used vin­tage items that you might not have on had to cre­ate my art jour­nal my ideas...

New Designs and A Giveaway

Jul 23, 2014

Here are some of the lat­est jew­el­ry pieces I have cre­at­ed. If you want to stay up to date on all the new items craft­ed as I make them please go to my Face­book Page “Anti­quat­ed Col­lec­tion by Lisa M. Pace and “Like” my page. Make sure you also click on “Get Noti­fi­ca­tions” so you can view the items right then. Some pieces sell with­in min­utes of post­ing and since no two pieces are ever exact as I craft each piece by hand, once it’s gone it’s gone. I can always cre­ate a sim­i­lar piece but since all the sup­plies used are vin­tage I can’t recre­ate an exact piece. I also have a draw­ing you can enter for a chance to win a $10.00 gift card to my Etsy Shop. The infor­ma­tion is post­ed on...

Rocky Mountain Memories ~ I’ll be There Soon

Apr 14, 2014

I’m get­ting so excit­ed about my return vis­it to Rocky Moun­tain Mem­o­ries in Estes Park, CO.

Cheryl Grigs­by, the own­er is liv­ing my dream. Seri­ous­ly, a scrap­book store in Estes Park, CO, pure heav­en. Last year, when I taught there I got to stay in Rick and Cheryl’s amaz­ing cab­in. While there all I could think about was how much mom and dad would love stay­ing at “Redemp­tion Cab­in”. So this year, I’m bring­ing Mr. & Mrs. Claus along for the ride. They are get­ting  a won­der­ful mini vaca­tion in one of their all time favorite spots while I teach. Mom and Dad...

Hi, Valentine!

Feb 14, 2014

This adorable image reminds me of the cards I would see in gift shops, when I was lit­tle. These two have such sweet faces and how can you not love all that pink. If you’re in need of cre­at­ing a last minute valen­tine right click on the image to enlarge it, now right click on the image again and choose “save image as” to save it to your com­put­er. Now you can print the image in any size you wish. I think print­ed in 2.5″ x 3.5″ is a sweet size and would be so cute left on your co-work­ers desk. I think adding Dia­mond Stick­les to the flower cen­ters, head­band and the pink on the pup­py would be a nice addi­tion to your card and still keep it in the quick and sim­ple...

Hearts of Red, White & Pink

Feb 5, 2014

I LOVE tis­sue paper and cre­at­ing tis­sue paper gar­land is one of my favorite things to do. Tis­sue paper is cheap and the gar­land is sim­ple to make. You can make your gar­land as long as you wish or just a small amount that is per­fect to accent a card as I did in the pho­to above. The cen­ter of the tis­sue paper heart is a cal­en­dar card by Jen­ni Bowl­in. I accent­ed the cen­ter of the cal­en­dar using brown ink and crack­le paint. Cre­at­ing tex­ture and dimen­sion is some­thing else I love doing. Pret­ty much all my projects have some kind of tex­ture and dimen­sion. This embossed heart is an accent on a tag. The heart is embossed, paint­ed and glit­tered and sur­pris­ing­ly does not take much time at all to cre­ate. The doily...

Something Fun to Entertain the Kids

Dec 4, 2013

When I was a lit­tle girl around the age of 3 or 4 my mom would go to an elder­ly lady’s house to do her hair. This lady had an awe­some album filled with greet­ing cards she put togeth­er for lit­tle ones to flip through. I remem­ber sit­ting on the floor look­ing at page after page in this album. I LOVED it so I thought of a fun idea for young kids dur­ing hol­i­day gath­er­ings. Find some old Christ­mas cards and if you are like me you have lots. I found this one that works per­fect­ly for this type of project. You will want one that you can cut the face out of (snow­man, gin­ger­bread man, San­ta, Elf, Rein­deer even ani­mals will work great). Using a craft knife cut out the face on your...

New Antiquated Collection ~ Winter Girl

Nov 2, 2013

I’m thrilled to final­ly be able to share with you my new Anti­quat­ed Col­lec­tion stamp set, Win­ter Girl. Each stamp has amaz­ing details and is quite inspi­ra­tional. I’ve cre­at­ed lots of cards, accent­ed a gift bag and even used the Win­ter Girl and Hol­ly & Berries stamps as embroi­dery pat­terns. I will share projects all next week of items I’ve cre­at­ed. Today, I’ll leave you with a cute card using Eileen Hul­l’s Sizzix Die ~ Can­ning Jars and my Anti­quat­ed Col­lec­tion ~ Win­ter Girl stamps Jin­gles, Jin­gle Bell and Hol­ly & Berries stamps.

Stylish and Fashionable ~ Card

Oct 23, 2013

I love to cre­ate mini col­lages on most all my projects. I get great sat­is­fac­tion in com­bin­ing mul­ti­ple items to cre­ate a focal point on cards, tags etc. This card uses stamps from the Anti­quat­ed Col­lec­tion Soci­ety Lady & Styl­ish and Fash­ion­able stamp sets and pat­terned paper by Pink Paislee. I have a huge crush on their Cot­tage Farms Col­lec­tion. I close­ly trimmed around the brooch and boot using my favorite of all times as in for­ev­er, Fiskars Coastal Craft Knife. If you have not tried this craft knife do your­self a favor and give it a try. This knife fits per­fect­ly in my hand. To add a bit more dimen­sion to the card, because I don’t think I can ever have enough dimen­sion, I attached the brooch and boot to the card front...

Society Lady ~ Card

Oct 22, 2013

Today I’m show­ing you how to cre­ate a sim­ple all occa­sion or note­card using my Anti­quat­ed Col­lec­tion Soci­ety Lady stamp set. First using Cof­fee Archival ink stamp the image of the lady onto card­stock or pat­terned paper. I used a sheet from the Pink Paislee Cot­tage Farms line. Next, cut a piece of pat­terned paper slight­ly small­er than the front of the blank note­card.  Using a Fiskars scal­loped cir­cle punch, punch a scal­loped cir­cle into the pat­terned paper piece in the low­er right cor­ner as shown in the pho­tos. Apply Plat­inum Stick­les along the out­er edge of the large pat­terned paper piece as well as along the edge of the punched scal­lop cir­cle as shown in the pho­tos and let dry. Trim the area around the stamped image so it is a bit larg­er...

Sweet Little Girls ~ Card

Oct 17, 2013

This card is stamped using my Anti­quat­ed Col­lec­tion ~ Sweet Lit­tle Girls stamp set. Can you tell I have a seri­ous crush on Cof­fee Archival Ink? It is now my go to ink when I need some­thing per­ma­nent. It’s the per­fect shade of vin­tage brown. The lit­tle girls can be col­ored using Dis­tress Mark­ers or Cop­ics but again, as I did in yes­ter­day’s post I left them sim­ply stamped on sol­id card­stock. I love how the stamped images look as if I just cut them out of a vin­tage mag­a­zine. The pat­terned paper used on this card is Pink Paislee ~ Cot­tage Farms Col­lec­tion. I think the mod­ern design mixed with the vin­tage girls works per­fect­ly...

Sweet Darling ~ Card

Oct 16, 2013

Seam Bind­ing and Archival Ink make for a fab­u­lous com­bi­na­tion. I want­ed a lit­tle some­thing dif­fer­ent for the title of my card so I decid­ed to stamp the word­ing onto seam bind­ing. This effect reminds me of the cute satin tags I’ve seen on baby items in antique shops. And the best thing is this is a beau­ti­ful and super sim­ple way to cre­ate unique titles for cards, tags and lay­outs. I mean real­ly could it get any sim­pler? We are talk­ing, ink & stamp, that’s it! The pat­terned paper used on this card is by Pink Paislee. It’s their Cot­tage Farms Col­lec­tion. What I love so much about this line is that it can look vin­tage or mod­ern. I tell ya, that Rebec­ca is so awe­some­ly tal­ent­ed and super sweet. I’m thrilled that...

CHA‑S 2013 ~ Dress Form Card

Aug 20, 2013

This is a card I cre­at­ed for Ranger using the new Stick­les they debuted at CHA‑S. Oh my good­ness are you going to LOVE the new col­ors. They are awe­some and I have a few new favorites to add to my collection/addiction, Mer­cury Glass, Cham­pagne and Pink Taffe­ta are my favorites from CHA‑S.   In this close up you can real­ly see how pret­ty the Pink Taffe­ta Stick­les looks accent­ing the design on the wings. It is the most beau­ti­ful shade of vin­tage pink. The dress form and bow are accent­ed using Cham­pagne Stick­les. This new col­or looks just like antiqued gold. It’s gor­geous. Tip: To make the Stick­les pop even more on the edge of the dress I first inked the edges using Vin­tage Pho­to Dis­tress Ink. Then I applied the Stick­les.  I used...
