Introducing Vintage Treasures Blog Hop

Introducing Amazing Paper Grace Vintage Treasuures designed by Becca Feeken featuring Spellbinders S4-997 Adorned Notepad - more info at
We are so tickled today to be introducing  Vintage Treasures.  Today, you’ll find a collection chalked full of classics!!  As always, there is a rectangle, oval, square and circle that will work well with everything in your stash and are perfect for layering.  Next, are several embellishment sets.  As you hop through all the links in the blog hop, you’ll see all the new dies and how we used them.

My Inspiration for Vintage Treasures

Every collection starts somewhere a memory, something seen or something felt.  For this one, I looked no further than my grandmothers hope chest. There is a special place in our hearts for those things kept in a hope chest.  Other than a promise of the future, they symbolize things of value and keepsakes that bring back treasured memories.  I delved there to find memories, filigree jewelry and keepsakes of old.  From long-forgotten turn of the century jewelry to the edgings on an old tattered handkerchief, I love bringing the past into the present in a style that is ….well, timeless.  These things — bejeweled lockets, a sweet tiara and vintage adornments from long ago — provided the sweet inspiration and restoration of some lovely, lovely Vintage Treasures.

The physical dies in this collection have an extra measure of flexibility and function.  Most templates have an outer rim, and inlay and an inner rim that you can use for your sentiment.

My Project For Today:

I’m tickled to introduce ****S4-997 Adorned Notepad

This is a fun offering from the collection.  Because the collection is full of rims, labels, and snippets of pretty,  I thought the adorned notepad to be a lovely place to showcase those snippets.  It creates the perfect little gift for giving.


I’ve made a series of little notebooks – one elegant gift notepad (gold and cream), one whimsical gift crayon holder for a youth and one feminine gift notepad for a friend (blue with dressforms).   My mind went crazy thinking up uses . . . a coupon book, a sewing kit, a holder for little button cards and tick, tick, tick, it’s still working away at the ideas!

Two of the notebooks below have small writing pads in them. I simply went to Office Depot and purchased small legal pads and had them chop the stack in half.  After chopping in half, I asked them to trim the bottom also to get to the dimensions I needed.  These are 2-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ and they are perfect to tuck into a purse!

For my girly notepad, I embellished with flowers (below):

Below is the youth gift where instead of using just the pencil holder, I lined up eight of them.  Perfect for crayons, perfect for an outing, perfect for the car :-)

These are supplies that will come in handy with this notepad die –  legal pads and golf pencils.  I purchased both items at Office Depot.
