So, I have two more nifty projects to show you – The first ones are the Copy Cats. Last night I got my daily email from Fab.com. I like Monday nights because it has all kinds of retro stores to browse. I don’t remember the name of the store but the owner offered albums. She highlighted parts of each album cover parts with glitter, offering them for an astronomical amount of money! So I waited about 2 hours and went back. She had sold almost 50! With that, I dug up all the needed items out of my closet and went to town! This is how the two turned out. No albums were injured in the creation of this……
These are also just things I had around the house. I read a blog about a woman who thrifts and crafts. She went to Kansas City and took a picture of something just like the framed art below. I used some vintage patterns I had that were missing pieces and framed them up!
What do y’all think?

Those look great! Very cool!

I just got home from work and what a lovely surprise was waiting on me! Thank you so much!
What a good job you did! Talking of music, I got an album (CD) today and when I opened it, there was no CD in the case…. 🙂
Seriously? did you take it back?
I bought it from a seller on Amazon Kelli, and they refunded me straight away

Talk about a blast from the past. I love the album idea and I covet those vintage patterns. I am cringing as to all the patterns we threw away when we moved my mom out of the house we grew up in. We had tons of patterns! What a great idea.
Thank you, I love old patterns but sometimes, there are some pieces missing and I just hate throwing them away.
I love album cover. I have a whole crate full in my garage. That gives me some good ideas. Thanks. 🙂
As long as you have a steady hand and some patience, you can do it! They look pretty darn cool!
