My dear friend Heather Nichols, also known as Pine in the stamping world, gave me a few little snippets of some vintage goodies while at CHA. She and her friend Brianna have started this fun venture called Ink and Nickel. They collect vintage items from garage sales, estate sales and flea markets and refurbish them into fun little kits to use on stamping, scrapbooking and home decor projects. I bet they've even dumpster dived a few times! Their motto is *recycle, reuse, redecorate*.
So I thought I would make Pine a little notebook and card using some of her goodies. My little package included vintage fabric, ribbon, eyelet lace (all on that cute clothespin), and buttons. These are some more of those junior notepads that I had cut in half at my local printing place. They are the perfect size for your purse or work bag and make great shopping lists. I use mine to keep track of my blog post supply lists. All the goodies are from Pine, the paper is Pine's favorite Stampin' Up! Kraft card stock. White ink on the edges (another Pine fave) and the big alphabet is from Autumn Leaves. I got my set at Archiver's.
Tip of the day: I stitched on the vintage fabric with my sewing machine and frayed all the edges by taking off several rows of string around the stitching. To cover the stitching on the inside cover of the notebook, I adhered another piece of Kraft colored cardstock.
Be sure to check out Pine's website HERE! From there you can head to her ETSY website where they sell all kinds of cute, homemade stuff! Check back often cuz I know Piney's going junkin' again soon!
