Here are our vintage holiday creations:
Stephanie says, "I did a *glue as you go* collage with lots of vintage bits and bobs from my stash ... sheet music, Ideals pages, and trading stamps. I did add a bird punched from a journaling card, a metal wreath, a sentiment sticker & a piece of flair (with vintage looking script on it) before adding a few stamped images from Seth Apter's Post Office collection."
(Lauren says, "I confess I'm secretly *hoping* this card of Stephanie's will be in MY mailbox come December!!!")
Lauren says, "I've hit all the categories for sourcing this time: I've got some actual vintage sheet music and lace from my stash, but the doily paper and doily scrap are new, commercially produced papercrafting supplies. The angel image kind of splits the difference: I scanned an actual vintage postcard from my collection, reduced it slightly to fit my not-quite-A7 card, and hit the edges with a bit of Antique Paper ink and a distressing tool."
Just in case you have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING even vaguely vintage-inspired in your stash, here are a couple of scans from Lauren's personal collection of ephemera for you to use if you'd like:
