My Vintage Valentine Blog Hop

You should have hopped on over here from Martha C.'s Blog - http://dreamofcrafting.blogspot.com/  if you haven't you'll want to start at the beginning with our wonderful Hostess Jess atKinderStampO - http://www.kinderstampo.com/
I have to tell you, vintage is not my forte, but I love seeing it and was so honored when Jess asked me to be part of this hop. I had so many ideas running thru my head with so many project ideas. I started one project in Studio J, (which is a Digital Scrapbooking program by CTMH, which you can play with for free HERE), but I realised I can't post it cause someone will see it and they can't. So I played around with some of the new CTMH papers and stamps and ended up reverting to one of my favorite papers that I feel has a vintage theme, I forget the name of the paper pack but it is retired. Though originally I was going to use the new "BLISS" level 2 paper pack because I think its beautiful "vintage" paper pack. Anyways, my mom sent so many printed pictures from when i was a kid and long before that I need to sort and store in a better place than an old U-haul box. I thought What a great project for this to store some of those "vintage" photos from when my mom was a kid and when my grandparents were kids. I chose to alter a CTMH My Creations Recipe/Photo Box (Z1322). Here is the finished Box:





I know its supposed to be "Valentine Themed" but valentine's day is about love and I do Love my family (sometimes, but don't let them know). J/K.  This Box is full of "Loved" photos that someday will end up in a Scrapbook Album someday, I hope soon. I just realised as I posted the pictures i forgot to add my "pearls". will have to do that in the morning and update my pictures.

Here's a lil Video Tutorial video on how to alter one of thes cool CTMH My Creations Recipe/Photo Box
