Ca 1910 Walker Creamery Ice Cream Tag

I’m so very happy and relieved to have completed my masters studies (the oral examination was yesterday afternoon)! I am now formally “Master of sciences in planning and leadership” pretty kewl, eh?

Atm. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a positive outcome about the job I interviewed for last Wednesday, or prolonged employment at my current workplace 😉

As for being creative, I feel very strongly now about celebrating summer! So here is a gorgeous Walker Creamery Ice Cream Tag I bought off the neverending ebay:

The original tag is quite large, and I’ve downsized it a little bit to fit 2 copies on a printable collage sheet for you. Print it out and use it “as is” as a gift tag, or decorate it further with any summery fun embellishments you can think of! I’d love to see your customized versions of it, please share 🙂

Wings of Whimsy: Walker Creamery Ice Cream Tags Collage Sheet #vintage #ephemera #printable #freebieYou will notice that I added a center line between the front and back. Score and fold the sheet along the center line, use spray glue to the back and tuck a piece of thin cardboard (cereal boxes are perfect). When the spray glue is dry (mine takes about 5-10 minutes), cut out the tags, punch a hole and they are ready for your next move 😀

The high quality printable collage sheet can be found in the download folder below. My followers will also find the individual tag, front- and back-sides, as PNG-files (transparent background) in the EXCLUSIVE folder. The files are free for your personal use and enjoyment.

Vintage Paper Lace

I have used the paper lace frame from yesterday before, but when working on it this time, I realized it would also be so pretty broken into pieces!

For digital scrapbooking, or maybe even to print out and make your own paper tape, I’m considering making a ready made printable sheet, please let me know if you’d like that, and I’ll see about that next 😉

A Rose From You – Digital Collage

I can’t draw! At all, so badly so, that I also can barely write anything understandable… maybe that is why I tend to sit down with my computer or paper and scissors when I feel creative…lol!

Today I’m sharing a digital collage, not sure if you can use it for anything, but it’s an example of what I make when other people would be doodling:

I have an interview for a new job tomorrow morning!!! I’ll probably be up all night, unable to sleep from being nervous… Please think about me and send me some “good luck vibes”, I feel like I really need it :-O

In case you can use my digital collage for something (maybe a background in your own work?) I’ve put it in the download folder for you. The file is free for your personal use and enjoyment.

BONHEUR Embroidered French Garland

I have had a blast with mixing paper printables and embroidery lately, and here is the latest design, a French Garland spelling out the word BONHEUR (happiness):

Wings of Whimsy: BONHEUR French Embroidery Garland #vintage #ephemera #printable #freebieI found some gorgeous pages from a Vintage Embroidery booklet, and I knew I had to utilize them 🙂 The result looks like the whole flags are embroidered, even if in fact I only embroidered the letters 😀

I spent maybe 10 minutes per letter, so this whole project will be completed in maybe 1,5 hour 😀

 INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Print the flags onto matte photo paper (mine is 170g paper) or cardstock
  2. Use a needle of something sharp to pierce all the white dots
  3. The red dots are guidelines to show you the symbols, they should all be covered with an X (one stitch)
  4. Embroider with floss or thin crochet thread
  5. Cut out the flags.
  6. String and hang.
  7. TA-DAH: Vintage Embroidered Cuteness 🙂

Here are the seamless tiles I created for the flags, they can of course be used to make papers or to cover any digital design you need:

Victorian Scraps – Lovely Glove Ladies

Here is a pretty pair of Victorian Glove Ladies, I think they’d be delightful in some crafty projects:
