Silver Bella Vintage Paper Swap

We are back from Silver Bella! It was a wonderful, magical event. Carol visited with me for some days ahead and after the event. It was so much fun to visit with friends and meet new ones. We have many creative and hopefully, inspiring things to show you.
There are swap items and classes to come in the next week or so. Our heads are so full of sparkly ideas for decorating and gift giving, we can hardly stand it!!

We will begin with this swap. The participants mailed vintage papers to our hostess, Lori Oles.
Lori's beautiful blog is -Vintage Flair. At Silver Bella, she presented us with this folder full of vintage papers.

The folder is made of vintage wallpaper and tied with a cheesecloth bow. There is a crepe paper rosette and a gorgeous sewn tag. I just love this beautiful girl on the tag.

Here are the papers inside. All were different, of course. These are the ones I received- a really nice selection.

These papers will probably go into a plastic bag, ready to use in projects. This folder needs to hold special items and be displayed someway.

Thanks for looking and please stop by for more creative ideas to come from Silver Bella.


  1. Hey Elizabeth (and Carol) -- how do you store your vintage paper -- since Silver Bella, my one binder is overflowing .... there has to be a better way... It was wonderful meeting both of you and sharing classes too!

  2. That is just too much lovely in one picture. That roll with the pink flowers at the bottom makes me want to swoon!

  3. So glad you had a wonderful time! How could you not though with all that creativity in one place! That lovely pile of ephemera makes my heart beat a lot faster! I look forward to seeing more from Silver Bella. Twyla

  4. Those were great little packets from Lori.
