It’s a 50’s Thing – FREE Pin-Up Collage Image Included

I love the kitsch of 1950’s retro. Just absolutely love it. Paper crafting is a way for me to enjoy ephemera in a whole new way – by taking the illustrations I love and making one-of-a-kind collage art from them.

Below are some of my recent creations. I have also included a free “Pressed for Time” pin-up image, which is a one-of-a-kind collage I made myself. Enjoy!

Give ’em the Old Razzle-Dazzle

Here is another pin-up card that I made for a friend’s promotion. 
I’m going to drop it off, along with some flowers, for her first day on the job this afternoon.
I love the circus illustration and inside I’m going to write,
“Give ’em the old razzle-dazzle; razzle-dazzle ’em”
from the Chicago musical.
Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you have a crafty week!

Pin-Up Promotion

My friend Callie and I share a passion for pin-ups!  When she was recently promoted to Catering Manager in my sales office, I wanted to make her an extra-special card to welcome her.

This image was perfect, since it mixed a lovely retro pin-up girl with office supplies!  lol

I love embellishing inside the cards, too.  I think it adds 87 points to the fun factor (this card, for example, has a fun factor of 132, of course).  🙂
Enjoy, and thanks for stopping by!
