Creative Charms Goes Vintage!

Creative Charms are absolutely perfect for heritage and vintage LO's. SO many items are already vintage-inspired like the velvet poppies and the vintage brads. But even the items that are not specifically vintage work perfect on heritage LO's. You will see what I mean. I will share two LO's today, both using Nikki Sivils pp. The first is with one of her new lines that just came out at CHA, "We Are Family". It's a pic of my mom with her parents.





Supplies:
Red Polka Dot Ribbon
Velvet Vintage Poppies
3D Vintage Brads - Antique Flower Medley
Braided Daisy Medley - RED

I also made a love-themed vintage LO, using Nikki's valentine's themed line, Sugar Cookie. I also used a lot of Scrapmatts laser-cut chipboard (the heart topiary and the white swirls). It's a pic of my parents as a very young couple.






Supplies:
Vintage Poppies with Pearl Brads - PASTEL PINK
Sweet Tooth - Felt Sticker & Epoxy Brads
Gradient Pearl Sticker - PINK
Vintage Make-It-Yours Self-Adhesive Metal Frames
January Deal of the Month - Be Mine (The puffy white heart with pastel flowers on top)
