HOW TO CONSTRUCT A VINTAGE MINI CONFIGURATION BOOK

Greetings vintage travelers!  Thank you so much for stopping by my blog.

Today I am hosting another creative adventure over at

Destination Inspiration brought to you by A Vintage Journey.
 
 What is on our travel itinerary this time?  

How about being whisked away into the world of Tim Holtz' Mini Configuration Books?


Here is my vintage Mini Configuration book that I have created especially for you. 
On this journey, I will give you the "road map" (tutorial) for creating this beautiful vintage piece. Besides the instructions, you will also receive lots of little tips and techniques that can be useful in all sorts of artful projects.

After you've finished your journey to Destination Inspiration, if you found some inspiration from this Mini Book, I'd love to hear from you at A Vintage Journey and also here on my own blog. I always love reading your uplifting comments.  They encourage me and truly do touch my heart. 

So what are you waiting for?  Click your heels three times and repeat after me ... "There's no place like home ... There's no place like home ..."

Wait a minute!  I'm getting my magical journeys all mixed up!

All you have to do is click the Red Destination Inspiration link above to begin your creative journey right now! 

Thanks for stopping by!

  28. Oh, Candy...I love this! It's like I walked into a dusty attic, opened a creaking trunk and found this tucked inside. So many wonderful details. Love how you added the lariat to the cowboy photo...how whimsical and brilliant! Then there's that sweet little nest, which I am betting you made with your own hands...so beautiful. Love the filmstrip ribbon, the buckle with the stamped twill...It's like an all you can see buffet! I keep going back for one more look..and now I see the hanging pocket watch. Goodness! Just amazing!
