More old fashioned idea's

Hello all,

I just wanted to give some idea's to help you think of the meaning old fashioned for this months challenge.      
                                      
 Think of your grandmother and the things she did as a girl, think of the old automobiles and trucks. Gingham material, sewing, black and white and sepia photographs, on dusty old scrap pages with heirlooms and hair ribbons, or even little girls wearing frocks or pinafores.

Do you remeber how your grandmother always said not to waste things? I do! and in doing so I have a boatload of scraps to use on other creations, you can enter cards just following that rule, it may not look old fashioned but you just went by an old fashioned rule! ; )

Arlene for example used a kleenex box  to make a frame for this lovely vintage card here

The Above not an option? just use distress inks no matter how modern the look, distressing always gives a vintage feel.

I hope this helps you get started! and in advance thanks for playing along.

Hannah
