Craft-room Challenge and Addicted to Stamps

At Craft-room Challenge the theme is Fashion and I chose the Flapper Girls fashion as I have photos of my mum in this sort of dress when she was a teenager. I always thought how lovely they must have been to wear and the materials of that time were beautiful.

I also love to enter the challenges at Addicted to Stamps and it is Bingo week for them again. I couldn't believe that this card fitted in there as well for the DIE-CUTS, FREE AND PEARLS line. For my FREE I am counting the peel-offs as I am on a peel-offs venture. I have lots and lots and didn't know whether to give them away or try to use them so I am having a go with them just to see.


The image was free from a vintage site, the card is distressed with Rangers ink as is the text paper which is from a pad called Life's Journey which I have had a very long time. The big die cut flower was given to me by my friend Janet, the smaller flowers were from a sheet of die cuts and everything else is peel offs. Oh except for the pearls and those I chopped off my bathroom flower arrangement cause they were getting caught in the blind.

Hi Chrissie, what a fabulous card and I agree about the fashion I would have loved to live in that era such style and elegance just like your card. Beautiful images, die cuts and peel of's and love how you used the stolen pearls. Thank you so much for joining us once again at ATS and the very best of luck !

Very elegant card, love the pastel colours you have chosen for the dresses they go perfectly for the period. You know peel offs are a useful tool, they also make good masks for inking over. You may not want to keep them all but I'd certainly hang onto some. In fact I did when I moved! Thank you for continuing to support Craft-Room Challenge we love to see your projects XOXO Zoe

Hi Chrissie, this is really gorgeous! I love your design and those vintage outfits are so beautiful! A lovely touch with the pearls from the bathroom blind, far better on a gorgeous creation such as this :-). Thanks for joining in with our Fashion challenge over at the Craft-Room.
