A LITTLE LOOK BACK IN TIME AND A LOOK AROUND THE HOUSES...

As I was going through my makes recently and having a bit of a sort out, I thought I would pick out a few of the older ones from the past, so that we could have a little look back at some of my faves over the years from time to time!  I expect I blogged about them at the date of creation, but I so loved making this mini printer tray one in a vintage 'lady's room' theme - very pretty in pinks and copper....




I used one of those fabulous Tando Printer Trays - I especially love the dinky ones.  The stamps used are from CI-306, CI-329 and CI-335, along with papers from our 'Shades of Summer' background book, plus lace, ribbons and charms. Those lovely printer trays do make fantastic gifts when fully decorated.

My other makes this evening are by Sylvie and are in the shape of houses, so they sort of fit a similar theme...




..... lots of CI stamps appearing here, including the lovely old gothic door from CI-249, and the flower patch from CI-411.  They are definitely 'happy houses' I would say.  Thanks Sylvie for your colourful and cheerful makes.

Bye for now,
Back soon,

Jean x

Love the shabby chic tray! Very feminine. Sylvie's houses are beautiful too in vibrant shades, and she managed to combine so many different sets together! Great stamping.

Two gorgeous projects. It's always great to look back at projects. There is always something or an idea that catches the eye. Lovely vintage feel to your tray Jean. Wonderful stamping and colours on Sylvie's houses. Super mix of stamps on both projects. TFS.
Hugs Flo x

A tantalizing trio of loveliness! The colors on the second pair are so vibrant and festive and the first is so delicate and divine! A vision of vintage beauty! TFS!

Maybe older, but still inspirational! Just as the bright-coloured houses; they look so fresh and sunny!

Two exquisite projects, Jean and Sylvie!!!
And I see no problem at all to look back at projects from the past, when they are so gorgeous!
I love the idea to decorate some tray like you did Jean, or some house shapes like Sylvie.. I will try to create something new in that way in the coming weeks.
Hugs, Coco xx
