Vintage Vogue is in Vogue!

January 23, 2010

Ok, I think everyone is saying that!  Every demonstrator’s blog that I’ve visited who talks about Vintage Vogue says that it’s “in vogue”!  I guess that means it truly is!

Vintage Vogue is one set in the Occasions Mini catalog that I just LOVE!  You can create so many different looks with it because there are so many pieces that you can use together or separately.  Here’s a sample inspired by my upline Claire.

Stamps: Vintage Vogue (occasions mini catalog)
Paper: Not Quite Navy, Very Vanilla, Close to Cocoa
Ink: Not Quite Navy, Close to Cocoa
Other: Chocolate Chip 5/8 grosgrain ribbon, sponges
