Vintage Vogue








So I am super excited to be able to post this today - I made it last night as an impromptu BELATED birthday gift for a dear friend but didn't want to post it till I could give it to her today...

I LOVE it though - I love these new colours from the Autumn/Winter mini - have totally become my favourites, and I LOVE the Big Shot and all that entails - it seriously is such a quick and easy way to make a card or project a little more stunning...


I tried out a ruffled ribbon for the first time and will definitley be using this again - I copied Sarah-Jane Kale's trick of putting sticky strip along a piece of cardstock and ruffling it on to that first then attaching to the main cardstock - super super easy...


The rest is fairly self explanatory - I think I pretty much CASED the layout from the mini catalogue as well but couldn't actually lay my hands on a copy to check so I was just going from memory...I think I just may have to make another one of these...


Hope you've had a fabulous day!!!


Come back again soon...

I totally love it, and it has pride of place on my crafting desk - perhaps to give me some much needed inspiration?! Thank you Adele, you are gorgeous!

Hi Adele

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and saying hi, and leaving such a lovely comment.

I just had to come and say hello and I'm so glad I did, you do the most beautiful work, it's very inspirational. Your scrapbook pages are just gorgeous and this very special gift you made is stunning. What a beautiful present, the frame is so pretty, the colours you have used just gorgeous and I love the way you added in the embossing folder. All I can say is wow!!

You have a wonderful week.

Lee-Anne :)

PS Your family picture up the top is so lovely, what a gorgeous family.

This is such a lovely gift; what a lucky friend :) I think the embossed panel looks perfect inside that beautiful frame.
