It's going to be a fun month and we have a very generous prize - a $25 gift certificate for the JBS store :) Oh, but that's not all... that GC is for THIS challenge only - we have another one to give away for our second challenge on 17th! You'll definitely want to link your projects up this month!
So to welcome our guests, today's challenge is all about vintage!
Vintage photos, vintage ephemera or just a vintage colour scheme... use your creativity to add a little vintage flair to your project!
Here's what our DT came up with to inspire you...
I use a lot of Vintage ephemera in my layouts on a regular basis, so I decided to make a vintage page without vintage supplies this time around. Instead I used the 'Vintedge' paper line from Ruby Rock-it and a vintage photo of my Great Gran. I thought the British themed collection was appropriate too, seeing as it's Jubilee weekend ;)
I went for a vintage feel to my layout. I used the Old Type embellishment kit from The Make and Create shop. Photo of the Queen taken from Google images.
I love to use vintage goodies on my pages, so along with an old photo of me there is a dictionary page, an OA flash card, and 2 vintage buttons from my Grandma's collection.
I went with a vintage photo of my Dad, circa 1942, and used some vintage looking Graphic 45 papers.
I used some vintage style papers from a couple of old GCD Studios collections, and a script rub on from Kaisercraft for my title. I don't have any vintage photos, so I cheated, and ran a vintage action on this photo of Mojo in Photoshop.
I have always been a fan of vintage style - in all it's forms: antique ephemera and current day versions, as well. For my page I used some vintage style die cuts to frame my photo and supported the design with some summery, vintage-feel patterned circles and ruler strips:
And here are the amazing creations from our guests...
"Horse Crazy" - Doris Sander used a vintage letterhead and manilla envelope as the base of her design on this layout. She also scattered extra bits of vintage throughout her page.
receipts, checks, and prescription papers.
All of the layouts from the JBS team, except Wipe-out, were made from the JBS Mercantile June Papercrafting Kit which, as you can see, is heavy on the vintage and vintage inspired product this month. We also sell a vintage add-on kit each month called, Artisan, but the June one that our designers used for these layouts is already sold out. We still have several vintage ephemera pieces available in the JBS Mercantile Flea Market, however. You'll see lots of pieces there that were used on the last layout, "Wipe-out."
We look forward to seeing what you create! Remember to link up your entries by the end of the month to be in to win prizes. We'd also love it if you'd stop by the blogs of our guests to say THANK YOU!
