Vintage Folded Book

Check out the Gingersnaps Creations Blog I have got a tutorial (project really) being shown......I hope you can stop by and let me know what you think.  I have created a folded book incorporating all things vintage/heritage ......... all the details can be found on the Gingersnaps Blog.







I have used stamps from Kaisercraft, Creative Expressions and TJ Designs. I love the new Marianne Design Frame Die LR0219 which I cut using metal and then aged with Stazon ink and added a lovely resin cameo which I picked up from the Cubby Hole.

I would like to enter my folded book into the following challenges:-

Craft Room Challenge - "Shabby/Vintage"

My Mojo Monthly - "Vintage Vibes"
My inspiration for the folded book came from a display in the Cubby Hole, my local craft shop where Sue Roddis of Jabberwocky created a wonderful scene usingbooks.  Her style is completely different from mine but it is something I can appreciate and admire!


Fashionable Stamping Challenges - "Bingo"
I have used the left hand vertical line:-  Show some Metal (my cameo frame), Lace (trim) & Some Words (Memories, vintage Treasure & Avant-Garde)


The Stamp Man - "Vintage"

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a good Sunday!  Suzanne ~x~

Fantastic project and what a great use for an old book. As a librarian I have no problem with books being re-used for altered art, it's certainly better than going to landfill!!(And before anyone takes umbrage at that comment just think realistically about how many new books are published each week, something has to go and not every old book is actually valuable)
