Some Family Fun…

Aug 20, 2011


Hope every­one had a great week! So hap­py to be back here again to share with you some of the new vin­tage-inspired, Vin­tage Street Mar­ket prod­ucts. This col­lec­tion of fun paper dolls is from our Fam­i­ly Fun line, which includes great paper doll die cuts for embell­ish­ing, and coor­di­nat­ing 12x12 card­stock. One thing I espe­cial­ly love about our own prod­ucts is  how well they coor­di­nate with authen­tic vin­tage items, which leads me to the first project I’d like to share today…

Remem­ber these ice cream cups from child­hood? I remem­ber every day at school dur­ing lunch, we would get to choose a fla­vor of ice cream, and would be giv­en one of these cups and a lit­tle wood­en spoon. We were all so eager to eat the ice cream the threat of splin­ters did­n’t even occur to us! :)

As these cups are so dec­o­ra­tive on their own (love the fonts), I decid­ed to just trim them with sil­ver glass glit­ter and vin­tage crepe. The spoons become the per­fect stand for the images of the chil­dren. I sim­ply cut out the images, glued them to the spoon, and propped them among the can­dies.

These “sweet” cups, and the coor­di­nat­ing wood­en spoons are actu­al­ly avail­able  in our online “vin­tage” store, and the Fam­i­ly Fun col­lec­tion is now ship­ping to stores. I can see these lit­tle treat cups filled with Birth­day, Valen­tine and Christ­mas good­ies as just a lit­tle some­thing to give to some­one spe­cial…

Need some cards to go with your treats? Here’s a vari­ety I put togeth­er also using the Vin­tage Street Mar­ket Fam­i­ly Fun Col­lec­tion-great for a friend, mom and dad.

Who does­n’t love sweet authen­tic vin­tage but­tons and vin­tage lace? The com­bi­na­tion of the two adds such a home­spun qual­i­ty..

The back­ground of this card was made using Vin­tage Street Mar­ket Dime­store Vogue paper. The sewing pat­tern is a nice sub­tle back­ground for the Moth­er die cut (trimmed in glit­ter of course-could you even imag­ine a world with­out glit­ter??? ) Do you notice the tape edg­ing? That is our Linen Tint­ed Tape. It adds such a neat tex­ture, and looks like tape from an old scrap­book!

And, a card for Dad. This one was made using the Dis­tin­guished Dad 12x12 card­stock, and the coor­di­nat­ing Father die cut and dad image. I had to restrain myself from adding any­thing “spark­ly” to it! :)

Thank you Lisa again for invit­ing Vin­tage Street Mar­ket to share on your site-we thor­ough­ly enjoyed it!
