A Vintage Greeting, The Olde Curiousity Shoppe and Tags

Hello friends!
I wanted to share a super sweet card with you today!
The butterflies make me think of Spring!

Graphic 45 is one of my favorite companies, but I wasn't sure I was going to like their new Olde Curiosity Shoppe line when I first saw it, but when I started creating a mini album with it, I fell in love the unique style!

It's got a great antique vibe that really worked well with the paper bag book.
I cut out small paper pieces from the line such as a sheet full of butterflies that I spread throughout the album.

I also did a lot of inking and distressing
 with my favorite Distress Ink pad, Walnut Stain.

I loved the image of the woman with the clock key coming out of her back!
The sheet of green bottles in all different shapes and sizes also was also great for cutting apart for embellishments.

I am selling this album here on ebay.

I have also been taking part in a 2 week online class with Tim Holtz!
It's called, Creative Chemistry 101. I have been having so much fun and learning techniques using my favorite Ranger products!
Here are a few tags I have made so far.

Wishing you a lovely day, Lindsey

Hi Lindsey - this is really cute. I love the seam binding book binding (ha!) - it looks fabulous with this great book.

Your tags look wonderful! I have to catch up with week 1 this weekend. There's been way too much other stuff going on around here to even venture into my studio this week. *sigh*

Thanks for sharing!
