Vintage Configuration Book with Sue M

Happy Friday bloggers! Its been a very busy week at Crafts U Love HQ and today we want to share with you a vintage class that took place with Sue M this week. Using a Tim Holtz mini configuration book, Sue created a shabby chic project that can be used to capture memories and tell a story. Take a look at some more close up pictures below....

On the inside front cover, Sue used one of the mini cabinet cards from Tim Holtz and added a bow using Tim Holtz's Bow Tied die for extra embellishment.

Inside the boxes of the configuration book, Sue used some stamps from La Blanche to create backgrounds, such as the books in this picture which are from the 'Collectables' stamp set.

This cute little bottle was added to one of the boxes inside the book with a tiny memories label on the front. Add whatever you want inside, lace, buttons, ephemera, anything to capture a memory.

Not forgetting the outside of the book, Sue used some beautiful papers from Studio Light Shabby Chic collection. If you're interested in these papers, please contact the store as this collection is currently not on the website. Other Studio Light papers can be found here.

The ladies who attended this class were overwhelmed with the overall result of their books and it really does make for a fantastic project which you can decorate with so many different themes. If you have a love for anything vintage, make sure you keep an eye out for more classes from Sue M at Crafts U Love.
