Hello! Lately I have been asked to do a few different custom vintage art journals, and they always have various themes to them. I thought I would share one of the recent ones with you here today. This particular customer purchased this book kit for her Mom as a gift. I'll admit, the theme request stumped me for a moment. She wanted a book kit that would include angels, cats, lots of vintage ephemera, pink, and maybe a bit of travel as well. Once I started looking though, I found all of the things I needed for this special gift, I also created some custom collage sheets to include that went along with these themes, and I was so excited when I was able to find a PINK vintage book cover to use.
The kit included lots of pretty, vintage papers.
Of course we had to have some vintage millinery and buttons.
Then there also needed to be some lovely vintage fabric and trims to make it a mixed media book kit.
And because this gift was intended for a teacher, I included some vintage school scissors for her as a little extra. Aren't they cute?! I found a box full of old stock school scissors a while back and thought they were so neat. I also love that they were made in the USA! I'll be listing the rest of the scissors in the shop soon in case you would love to have a pair or two for your studio. I was so happy to hear that the book kit I created was a huge hit and her Mom loved it! That is something I always love to hear.
Back soon! Cerri
