The Atomic Housewife

Technicolor cookbooks, ranch houses, 50's and 60's advertising and decorating. Ohhh the kitschiness of it all. Don't you love it?







The Atomic Housewife has inspired me to make this little card.

 Pattern paper and rub on from Melissa Frances and the vintage image is from Cosmo Cricket.

The Crepe Paper Dress


 My Great-Great Aunt Wanda takes the title of Miss Torrey, Utah in a crepe paper dress! This is where creativity meets necessity. During The Great Depression there wasn't money to buy fabric. Her mother, instead, sewed blue crepe paper to an old sheet. Look at the amount of detail.  Dare I attempt such a feat?

Cute Overload



When I saw these adorable stamps from  My Cute Stamps, I wanted to just eat them up. You know when something is sooo cute you just want to bite it?   Like this -
and this-
aaaaaand this-
Ahhhhhhh cuteness overload!!

In honor of all things cute, I decided to use those darling stamps on a few mini cards. I stamped the image on muslin, then stitched it. I wanted to use colors that had that "ice cream parlor" feel to them. So, naturally I turned to the soft, sweet colors and patterns from Melissa Frances.
 
Off to devour a cupcake!  Gotta go!

Curiouser and Curiouser


"If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see? "— The Mad Hatter


A couple projects using Alice in Wonderland collage packs from Tweety Jill. The mini frame and glitter chipboard are from Melissa Frances.
