Paper Tales

These are some cards I made for the Crafty Vintage Market. I used to make a lot of cards like these but haven't made any for ages. I'd forgotton how much I enjoy putting them together, using the ephemera I've collected over the years, old letters, maps, music and book pages. Then choosing just the right buttons, beads and fabric scraps to complete them, and tell a little story.

Crafty Vintage!

Some images from a lovely day at the Crafty Vintage Market in Bishop's Castle, Shropshire on Saturday. You can find more images of the day on the Crafty Vintage Facebook page, and there will be another market in October. On the day, I met the lovely Kathleen from Murgatroyd and Bean and took home this little bean who is sitting on my desk and keeping me company while I sew.
