A Simple Project...

I had a lot of fun using some old photos and vintage vocabulary cards to create some projects for Junk Bonanza!  I used a variety of backgrounds including photo folders...

I simply added fun photos and vocabulary cards that I liked with them...isn't she a cutie?

 The same vocabulary card took on a different feeling with an antique photo...I love using old hangers for whimsical displays...

Love the names written on the folder...

I did some with a ghostly Halloween feeling...this one used an old plinth block for a background, and the photo is easily changed out...

Love this ghostly old group photo...

Some photos I did in a humorous way...my sense of humor can get pretty out there sometimes and a project like this lends itself well to it...

It was a lot of fun!  I thought it might be fun to try with scans of family photos, too!  Hope you'll try it!

I'm linking to Knick of Time Tuesday - she's having a fun Tatttered Books giveaway, too!

Until next time...


  1. Those are just great Linda. You are so clever!

  2. Hi Linda, these work so brilliantly. I love the combinations of the words with the pictures and your backgrounds are stunning. It'll be fun to do with family photos. I do love a twisted sense of humour too! penny

  3. Oh Linda that is a darling and clever idea. They turned out so cute.

  4. Hi Linda, What a great idea for the old pictures! I have a ton of old pictures that were my grandmothers. I have been wanting to do something with them but didn't know what to do. Now I have an idea.
    I wanted to get to Junk Bonanza but it didn't work out. I did get to the Bachman Idea House over the weekend and will post some pictures in a couple days.
    Have a great week.

  5. Hi Linda, what a cute idea! I love the vintage backgrounds. I just may have to add them to my list of "Things To Do".

    Have a wonderful day,

  6. What a cute and clever idea!!! Bet you had to close up the lake house by now? Must be getting cool there in your neck of the woods!

  7. These are awesome Linda! I especially like "cadaverous" and the "preponderance" one!

  8. Linda, I love those! The definition cards are hysterical !
    Wish I have been at JB.
    Smiles, Alice

  9. how fun, I have a box of these in my studio and never had any idea of what to do with them

  10. What a cute project. I have lots of old photos to work with. Now if I could just find some of those definition cards...or make my own!
    Thanks for a great idea!!!

  11. I love this. I have so many old family photos and I'm always looking for ways to use them in my art!

  12. What a great idea! I just know I had a box of vocabulary cards somewhere. i hop I didn't get rid of them in a fit of de-clutter!
    I hope to be up and blogging again soon, just got back from my trip and the workman is here right now hopefully hooking up my satellite internet so I can say goodbye to dial-up forever. Yay!

  13. LOVE these, Linda!!! Do you have the cards in your shop??? I'll go check.

  14. Those are cute! You need to write a craft book.

  15. Oh my gosh, Linda, I love these. Those little cards with the photos are hilarious! Where do you manage to find such neat things?! I never see anything like that :)

  16. Linda, this is such a great idea and I can see how some real fun could be had with some old pictures and the vocab cards. I'm sending this on to a friend of mine who incorporates old pictures in her artwork. I think this would be right up her alley! Ann

  17. Such a great idea Linda, and I love your sense of humor!

    Kat :)

  18. These are wonderful...how creative!

  19. Linda,
    These are so awesome. The Photos with the cards are truly clever and fun. Being a lover of words I just want to dive into the vintage vocabulary card box. What a great find!

  20. I love them and I see your humor! What a fun project!

  28. Dear Linda, a wonderful way of decorating- and being able to change when feeling for that.
