Hello my friends .. 

I am here with you today showcasing Vintage Artistry collections from 


I have always loved classic clothes … tailored jackets, crisp white shirts and leather bags … I decided to create a LO around this pic .. 


I tend to lean towards monochromatic themes and earthy tones… 

Surprisingly I chose the background paper from the lilac collection in Vintage Artistry. This is not in the earthy tones but I found this to be a perfect background for the photograph .

The collage stacks and ephemera stacks are a perfect match for the blazer in my photograph …

Dusty attic chipboard 

How good are these stitched frames .. I cut the photograph to fit in the frame, then proceeded to create a collage with the Ephemera stacks, collage stacks and stitched frames, and when I was happy with my collage I added the framed photograph over the collage and then proceeded  to add my flowers. leaves and title .

I stained the chipboard in an earthy tone and scattered white and brown blooms with a few green leaves to add a pop of contrast . This LO went together surprisingly quickly. Because all the products work so beautifully together I can create a project in a few hours .. I usually choose the photograph first as the focal point and create my layering, blooms and chipboard around that .

I added the wishing bubbles to create a finished look . I love how I can just pop in a ticket or two if I want to fill in a gap … so easy and fun to create with … 

thanks a million Janene for all your stunning products xoxo


Have fun playing with these exceptional products . Mixing and matching colors and Ephemera as you build your Layout …

Take care and big hugz from me until we meet again

Lots of love from heather J.

Hi everyone . 

I hope you are all staying safe and well . 

Today I am bringing  another Project for you. Showcasing the absolutely amazing 49andmarket items .

49 and Market  

We are just beginning our autumn season here in Australia, such a beautiful TIME of the year . SIGH !!   Leaves change color and fall, and the rejuvenation period begins . Allow the colors and sounds of nature to make your heart sing and remember to Cherish all the moments,  embrace the beauty and importance of nature … 


My Process 

I began my Layout by overlapping two papers. leaving the left and right side edge showing underneath the top page . I used a stencil and texture paste for my background and added some pale blue ink. I love to add stitching as I love the look and it also is a very quick and easy way of keeping the layered pages together .

The blooms and leaves I have used represent to me how the colors change during autumn, from yellow and orange through to browns and burnt ochre . Then finally falling from trees to the ground where  the rejuvenation process begins  .  I added a butterfly amongst the blooms and I layered and stacked different items to build interest and dimension . The stitched frames and the natural Ephemera stacks are just wonderful and such fun to play with  …

A friend of mine makes these stunning headbands featured in the photo. The headband to me represents natures leaves and stems as they turn different colors during Autumn . I named this LO PERFECTION, because to me nature is perfect, full of layers and color and form 


The 49 and market blooms are wonderful for blending together as they all mix and match  perfectly . 

The Ephemera stacks are great to layer on a Layout and I especially love to stack them with the stitched frames and build them up behind a photo .. I adore the tickets. one of my faves in the stacks ..

Have fun creating my friends and big hugz until next time we meet .

Lots of love from Heather J .

today I am showcasing the vintage artistry in the sage range …

 totally in love with this collection .. I began this LO by choosing a quote . 

I have done journaling since I was a teenager and I truly  believe journals can keep us positive and aware of our thoughts and emotions.

I  begin each day by reading a positive affirmation and popping it where I can read it throughout the day reminding me to be conscious of my thoughts, which helps me to be happy and grateful . 

I keep a journal and begin each day by reading a positive affirmation and popping it where I can read it throughout the day reminding me to be conscious of my thoughts,
 as I believe being aware of my thoughts helps me to be happy and grateful and manifesting my goals and purpose in life.

Each of us choose our thoughts and if we read positive words during each day I believe it helps, especially if I am having a low day . 

I surrounded the quote with blooms and layered embellishments ,  as I am sure  you know I adore layering. These collage packs, laser cuts are perfect for creating many layers on a LO . I painted some chipboard houses with green paint and added a layer of  crackle paint . I loaded lots of beautiful blooms in a cluster hugging the quote, and also included some butterflies and leaves as an added feature .The lacey laser cuts complete this LO .


Thanks for popping by and I hope I have inspired you to use some of these packs to create layers on your work .. lots of big hugz until next  time .. love from heather J
