I am inspired by quotes and love to decorate with them around my house. After seeing the beautiful quotes in the Gypsy Moments collection, I was inspired to create this sweet mini quote album using the file folders that I tucked into the Vintage ATC Crate.
I used a sanding block, screws and the claw of the hammer to distress the crate by dragging it across the crate to scratch it.
Then I spayed Tattered Angels Coffee Shop and wiped off the excess filling in markes with a deep color.
I individually cut out the words from the Express Yourself Gypsy Moments Paper to add them to the mini album.
I used some of the tags from the Mini Ephemera – Lady Like and added some vintage embellishments, laces and ribbon.
To add a vintage feel, I used the Mini Hanger Antique Silver to hold the photo in place.
To complete the crate, I added vintage millinary, tulle and ribbon. I then added the dream charm from the Create Charms.
To add the vintage buttons to the Vintage Pin Antique Silver I opened the pin using needle nose pliers. I opened it enough to put the buttons on the pin and then closed it back. Gluing the pin in place.
I hope I inspired you to do a little creating today.
In every soul appears the heart of a Gypsy: we wander, we travel, we dance and we sing. And while we wander, travel, dance and sing we experience moments— moments that make for memories that last a minute, a day, a month, a year… These moments are those that occur when everyone’s watching, and those that occur when no one’s watching. They’re those special little moments that present themselves in the uniqueness of our one-of-a-kind lives. A point in time that makes you blush, grin, smirk, tear, think, breath, dance, dream, wish, sigh, and helps you realize who you are. These moments are Gypsy Moments. Gypsy Moments are meant to be captured and remembered, no matter how loud, goofy, irresponsible, dramatic, euphoric, regretful or blissful they are. It’s that moment you cheat and get a scone with your “skinny” vanilla latte. It’s that moment where you have the perfect words to say exactly what you need to say. It’s that moment when lady luck is on your side. It’s a day where you keep tripping for no apparent reason. It’s a day filled with moments that make you want to laugh. It’s a day filled with moments that make you want to cry. These moments are so ‘Gypsy.’
