paperie blog party

Come and join me for the Paperie Blog Party today at The French Cupboard. Although I love doing digital collage I also enjoy making things with paper. I love paper of all kinds. Especially vintage books and sheet music and I also love to reycle. Brown paper bags and boxes already come with that wonderful aged patina so I try to see how I can use them in my paper crafts.


Here are a few of my earlier paper projects. 'LOVE' gift tag banner, 'TIME FOR TEA' pennants and a posie holder made from vintage sheet music.



I just made this shabby 'old' file folder a few days ago. It's made from a few layers of brown paper bag. I found a whole stack of old ones in my mom's garage. They already had that wonderful aged look I love. I decorated it with paint, pages from a vintage book, images from a recycled calendar and a wonderful picture of the French author Collette from a fabulous book about French writers I picked up for .80 cents.



I think this was the first set of banner tags I ever made and it's still my favorite.



My little teacup fairy lives in my favorite mini teacup.



She's also made from vintage books I found at my favortie thrift shop.



Her little friend is close by waiting for a new dress and wings.


 
Another recent project I posted for Cindy's Creative Spirit challenge. Made from vinatge sheet music, dress pattern paper and a vintage image freebie from Somerset magazine.



And since my thoughts have already turned to Fall and Halloween here are spooky tags made from a corrugated board box I salvaged from my friends at Tuesday Morning. Thanks for letting me share.

Visit The French Cupboard for lots more pretty paper things.

Today I'm grateful for.....

Paper, glue and glitter!
