Season’s Greetings 2016

Hello blog followers and visitors…  Just wanted to assure you that I am just fine and still planning to develop and add to this website; however, I have been busy with other hobbies ( planting a culinary  herb garden, as a small example) and time commitments.  I definitely have to apply several “planning” principles as I try to organize my crazy life.  Thanks for your sweet compliments and comments and the continued web traffic.

I hope you are all caught up in fun holiday activities with your family and loved ones as you enjoy the holiday season.   Stay tuned.

Blog Update – Coffee and Tech Issues

Hello Peeps,

I just wanted to let you know that  I have been on a break due to some major technical issues with my original laptop and also my  backup laptop.  Amazingly, I have fried them both!

And,  while I wait for my new  laptop workhorse (being shipped this week), I have had to take a long coffee break and also have had to hold off on my new designs and additional freebies.  Please bear with this interruption during these mid-summer weeks.

I hope to be back on track within a few days to a week!  Meanwhile,  you can take advantage and  enjoy all the current blog posts and freebies that I have posted to date.    I just wanted to let you all know.  Thanks for your continued support.



Update (7/22/16):  So, my “new” laptop has come in and I am fast and furiously working on downloading , installing, upgrading some of  the software (and freeware) that I use to create my planner printables.

Check out the blog update and greeting Youtube vid below, if you like. ( Hint:  I was testing my screencasting software and sound quality)! So, sorry if you pick up on the semi frustrated tone of my voice ( it’s certainly not aimed at and of by blog peeps and followers)…sometimes the back end tech issues can get so ridiculous and exasperating!




Blog Update – Announcement

Bridal- wedding day

Hello blog followers and visitors!  I just wanted to update you all and let you know that I have not been posting any new planner goodies (and will be out of the country, shortly) because I have been busy preparing for  my son’s destination wedding in Europe!  This has been a crazy, busy time and while I have wanted to post new planner stickers goodies, I literally have not been able to carve out any spare time! Talk about planning challenges.

So, I hope you can bear with me until I return in a couple of weeks and I get back on track with all the planner goodies I can muster. Have a great one and enjoy all my other planner sticker posts!

New Year’s Greeting! – 2016 Planners

2016 Planning Calendars by Sugapaper for Target

Happy New Year to all my blog followers and visitors!  So here we are…we are now officially in the year 2016 and I just want to say y’all made 2015 a record year with your visits and views.  I’m grateful to you all for making,  what I began as an outlet for my creativity and de-stressing sessions,  into a whole new venture that now has taken a whole new direction into the planner world with many of my freebie planner printables!

It has been a very interesting journey that began with a “planner” printable I designed in February of 2015 and posted on this blog.   I hope you stay tuned and stick with me through this year 2016 to see what new items I will be coming up with.  I have been brainstorming “planning” sessions or printables I have been trying to design for a few more planners or different planners but we will see what can be provided within the next few weeks.

I have already started gathering a few planners for this year by purchasing some planners made by Sugarpaper for Target.  They are currently being sold for a reasonable sales price at Target.  I love these for their black and white color theme and the spots of gold they design throughout their planners.   In addition, I purchased the new Erin Condren Planner in both a horizontal and vertical view!  Although Staples is selling some of her planners (in certain select locations) you might find a better deal for Erin Condren planners on her website.   Here are a couple more pics of the Sugarpaper for Target planners for you to examine.

Once again I want to thank you all for your visits, views and comments as we continue into 2016!  Happy Planning!

Blog News – Refreshing My Youtube Channel With Planner Decor Videos

Hello all my blog followers and visitors! I hope you are having a great weekend and carving out time for some crafting and lots of rest and relaxation.

Lots of good things are happening here at VintageGlam Studio, so I wanted to give you a little review of what’s happening in regard to my Youtube Channel  before we enter the super busy holiday season.  Although, we  are pretty much  there already come to think of it …what with Halloween parties and Halloween itself, I know you must be busy!

I just wanted to share that I am actively refreshing and updating my Youtube Channel.  At this time, I am creating lots of videos that basically provide a summarized review of my planner decor layouts in my Happy Planner by Me and My Big Ideas, Erin Condren Life Planner and Sugar Paper Planner for Target.  Most of the planner decor videos are under 5 minutes and they are edited so that you can get the real “meat”. I also include most of the materials and supplies and sources in the Youtube decscription so that you can add it to your “crafting” list , if you are interested. And I would just love it, if you become a subscriber!

I also hope to create more vids that cover some of the diy’s that I have shared on my Instagram account. (You guys are keeping me busy!)   But that is all in the planning  and “get it done” stage for right now, in any case I just wanted to let you know what is going on and share a video that I published today.

Thanks for your support and we’ll keep blogging away!

Blog Announcement – Handmade Greeting Cards Now on my Etsy Store

Hello blog visitors and followers.   Well, I imagine you are busy with all you last minute shopping, wrapping, crafting and all the last minute activities that can occupy your time in this holiday season.

I just wanted to share that I am beginning to post tangible papercraft products in my Etsy Store apart from the digital graphics.  As we ahead into the new year,( imagine 2015 already?),  I will be posting additional papercraft products handmade  by moi!

I wanted to show you the detail on some of the recent limited greeting cards that I created and made available for sale on Etsy.

Greeting Card #1

I had holiday baking in mind when I created this card.  I loaded it with a lot of embellishments including a clothespin, handcrafted flair and silhouette diecuts as well as a diecut banner made with my Sissix machine.

greeting card, christmas, gingerbread boy

Greeting Card #2

I was thinking “vintage” with this card and wanted it decorated with snow mittens and a lot of feminine details, such as stitched scalloped borders.  I even added the vintage  sentiment because I thought it was so cute and  of course, for more bling… pink glitter snowflakes and rhinestones.

greeting card, vintage, snowflakes

Greeting Card #3

I was thinking of a “blue Christmas” with this card.  I love all the light blue elements and especially enjoyed creating the woodgrain background for the card.

greeting card, snowflake, blue

Greeting Card #4

Now what is Christmas crafting without a little gold and another favorite woodland animal…a deer.  This card was so fun to craft.  I added a lot of details including an embossed piece and white ink stamped piece of acetate to simulate viewing the snow through a window.

greeting card, deer, gold

Greeting Card #5

This card was so much fun to handcraft.  I used premade Jolee’s Boutique embellishments and placed it on an embossed backing designed by Anna Griffin.  A little more formal.  (This card is no longer available on Etsy and has been sold.)

greeting card, christmas tree, green, gold

Well, that’s the round up of cards I handcrafted and actually have made available on my Etsy Store.  You will be seeing more papercraft items in the future as I coordinate my time for these handcrafted items.    I hope you like my creations! 🙂

Don’t forget to follow me on the Social Media hangout of your choice and on my email subscription if you would like to receive my blog posts the day they are published. Thanks!
