Mojo For You


Vintage is "in" and old is "new" and the Newsprint Designer Series Paper fits the bill perfectly. I can't wait to get my hands on more of the Vintage Suite products featured in the new Idea Book & Catalog. When I saw this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch (Mojo146), I knew exactly what I wanted to do and it all came together perfectly.  Love when that happens!

  • The vintage blooms from Elements of Style are just as beautiful in black and white as they are when colored.
  • The new Cherry Cobbler card stock is a natural for creating this vintage look. For added interest, I put the strips in the new Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and zipped it through my Big Shot. Bam! Instant texture and appeal. I love it!
  • The Oval Scallop Frame Bigz die gave me the perfect size oval, minus the scallop frame. Sponging the oval gives it a little extra depth. Enhance any project with a little sponging and you'll instantly see the difference.
  • When creating a card with dark card stock as your base, insert a layer of light cardstock to make stamping and/or writing a sentiment easier to see and read.  A delicate border created with the Scallop Trim Border punch gives it a final sweet touch.
