I'm back with photos and links to some Clearance Sale items - and I will do another post later today with photos of old stuff we are selling at the Antique Expo Show this weekend in Portland, OR. Almost all our stock is on sale except for our Creating With Vintage CD's (because they are an priced so low for what you get) but we had some miscellaneous items that were never added to our CraftyVintageGirl.com Store and I've marked some of them down even lower.
First, I have to show you this super cute card by DT Member Elizabeth Lincoln using the pair of boots from our new Garden Digital Stamp Set. I let out a whoop when I saw it as this is how we imagined the boots, gloves and umbrella colored in fun bright colors but the roses were a nice surprise.
When Tattered Angels cleared out their discontinued items I bought a mix of 2 full skids and about 350 of these Timeless Romance Stamp Sets because of the quality and size. The stamps are mounted on a thick acrylic sheet you cut apart to use as stamp blocks. We’ve tried and they work, so no need to buy a 6” stamp block.
I've showed some of these samples before but I believe this is one of the sweetest layouts done with this stamp set. DT leader Vicki Chrisman sprayed fabric with Glimmer Mist, stamped, stitched and embellished it. Don't you think it would be pretty tied to a white branch on a wall in a little girls room?
The Garden Gate album is one of my favorite and I'm sad it was discontinued. I love the way it opens and how some of the pages fold out extra long. The cover is a thick cream chipboard embossed with trees and the pages are thick enough to spray with Glimmer Mist or cover with paper. See more pages by DT Leader Vicki Chrisman who created this sample for Tattered Angels - but we are sold out of the mini embossed frames Vicki used on some of the other pages shown on her blog.
Frosty Memories Albums are on sale for $3.95
Girls Alphabet Booklets $1.25 each or call us to order 50+ Booklets at .50 cents each - What a deal! At .50 cents each they would be great for a kids crafty birthday or group.
I still love this personalized wreath for over a little girls bed ab=nd it would be great to use fabric from an old favorite dress. DT leader Vicki Chrisman was our 'Design Team' back then and made most of the samples. She stitched the letters to shipping tags and added fabric cut with pinking shears and lots of tulle to add fullness.
Boys Alphabet Booklets $1.25 each or call us to order 50+ Booklets at .50 cents each - What a deal!
Altered Alphabet Booklets $1.25 each or call us to order 50+ Booklets at .50 cents each - What a deal!
I believe in Angels and I still think of this memory every time I see these angel images. I've always imagined the artists who created this artwork are looking down from heaven and so happy to see that their work is not all lost and forgotten. Link to Angelic Booklets
I made this CD album for a friend years ago when our Alpha Booklets first came out and used white paint to stamp the design and a glass cup rim dipped in paint to add the circle.
Okay, now onto our chipboard pieces which are die cut from a thicker ivory coasterboard. They ink and stamp nicely and used to be kits but I can't get the ivory board and my die cutter went out of business and took all my dies! This 9" x 5.5" fancy rectangle is the most popular.
I think the handle for this purse came from Hobby Lobby but you could make a wire, chain or beaded handle.
Here's the heart shape coasterboard which you can string 3 together to make a garland or mini album. You can see some great inside pages on Vicki's Blog but her links go to our Shopatron Store which I'm hoping to close and just use our craftyvintagegirl.com store, so Paper from CD 1, Love Mail Scraps and Flourish Stamp Set.
Here's the Square Ivory Coasterboard on sale for 50 cents.
Lastly, Metallic and Lace Stickers now $1.50. We have a variety of gold, black and some white left and you can see the detail on the samples below showing the stickers placed on black paper.
Okay, later today I will post photos of some of the old items we are bring to the Antique Show in Portland this weekend in case anyone is interested they can email or call our toll free. It's just the shipping that could be a pain if it's heavy, large or odd shaped. I have a huge collection of Dolly Dingle Paper Dolls, plus plates and figurines, Mikassa full set of dishes in Precious Pattern (only 36 years old), the pattern I collected when we got married but it seems too precious to use. vintage fabric, wallpaper, oodles of postcards, books, paintings and more!
Have a great day!
