My lovely Vintage Gentlemen

You know I"m a lucky Guest Designer for 
this month, right?
Well, I am and I am so lucky to had the chance to play with this gorgeous 
before the rest of you!!!  lol

It's OK, it's available in Ali's shop now.
You can find it here

You'll love it like I do, it's full of all sorts of wonderful vintage ephemera, 
three colours of lovely vintage seam binding,
a Cabinet Card and lot of other treasures. Many of them!

Here is my second creation for the month:

It's a journal.
Perhaps I shall write in it about all the men I've loved.
Maybe not enough room...

I made sonme book jewelry, and used a little bit of the vintage pages to create some beads.

How cool is this??

Look at the vintage handwriting!  I've also used a copule of Tim Holtz and Basic Grey papers.

You have to SEE this!  Smith's COMPUTER!!  
How many gigs do you suppose it has?  lol

And finally, just waiting to be filled:
The ties along the front and back, for closing the book are made of the gorgeous Linen fabric ribbon which arrived in the kit and some of that mahvellous seam binding,
The brown bow at the top (also of seam binding) is also quite wonderful, don't you think?

I do hope you'll check out this and Ali's other amazing vintage kits in  

AND, join in the challenge that is running over there at Vintage Page Designs
And you will definitely want to be a part of that.

See you over there!


  1. Great journal, Electra! I love the book jewellry! The seam binding and ribbon add so much.

  2. Oh Electra, what a beautiful piece and a beautful idea to write about all of the men you have loved. I would like to be a fly on the wall when you start writing in it. Can you write in a vintage style ... that would make it even more interesting, just sayin'. It is a good morning for me when I can come over and peruse your blog. Thank you again ...

  5. Love it wonderful vintage cabinet card!

  6. Yes, it's a wonderful kit. I've had it in and out of my shopping cart several times, trying not to spend even more money, but I think you might just have done away with my last bit of willpower. This is totally gorgeous, or as we say in the UK, yes, mahvellous!
