Vintage Blocks

For those who know me, you know I have a secret love affair with vintage images. Most of my craft making is CAS using mostly stamps and die cuts. Once in a while, like today for instance, I get the urge to create things using free vintage images found on the internet that I simply print out on my home printer. This post is picture heavy, so I'll let the photo's do the talking.

This next picture shows the dimension. I put fun foam between the layers to make it sturdy and not crush when being stored.

See the little doggie die cut? That came from my sweet online friend Marcia in a die cut swap we did. Crafty, online friends are the best!

This next one has a special destination.

The old blocks are some that I've been hoarding holding on to for years. It's time to put them to good use. I used the block with the letter "F" for "Friendship"! I am going to be teaching this craft to a group of crafty friends coming up in February.

I'll also be adding one of these projects to the following challenge:
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge ~ anything goes
Sisterhood of Crafters ~ Love Letters
Word Art Wednesday
Simon Says Monday Challenge ~ Love Is In The Air
Use Your Stuff ~ Sequins or Glitter

Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings~ Birgit
