Vintage Papercrafting...

As you all know I love to make all kinds of things and I especially love the art of papercrafting....and of course it's even better when it has a vintage flair!

Because I have been involved in all things fabric...sadly...I havn't had much time to play with paper and I have had a project or two that I really wanted to have some time to do.

But as luck would have it...my sweet friend Maryjane from Beehive Cottage came to my rescue!
I told her what I needed and exactly what I had in mind and sent her a few images...and here is what she made for me!
Actually she made me several of these adorable journals because I needed some for gifts... as well as one for myself of course:) Maryjane even included fun bookmarks that she made from vintage graphics as well...so cute!

She is such a talented papercrafter right down to each little detail.
I love the journals so much!...thanks Maryjane...I knew they would be perfect in every way:)
If you love looking at beautiful blogs...I suggest that you go over and visit my friend Maryjane...here...and tell her I sent you!

Your friend did an amazing job on the altered compo books. Sigh, now I'll have even more projects lined up, but I can't pass up the opportunity to use some of my own vintage papers for a project this good.

What a fabulous idea for a journal! I saw Nanettes when she posted about your retreat. You are always so generous and creative with your quilting friends.

This is wonderful! Being a vintage papercrafter myself, I LOVE each and every detail of what Maryjane did--and I love Maryjane, too! She's amazing!

Wishing you a beautiful day...

Everything you do is just so cute! Truly an artist! I have read your blog for years and was hoping that you could take a look at my friends brand new blog. I hope in the near future she will show her "Quilter's World" quilt on her blog, but time will tell. If you could give her blog a look see and maybe add her as a blog friend since you have such a large following. I'm just trying to help her on her journey. simplyputplus.blogspot.com
