Turn the key and see what’s inside the Sara Signature Vintage Diary collection!

Crafter's Companion – 28/03/21

There’s a certain magic to be found inside the soft pages of a worn leather journal, the kind that closes with a clasp and a heart-shaped lock. Now, with the Sara Signature Vintage Diary Collection you can bottle some of that magic to use in your crafting projects!

Infused with timeless elegance and charm, the Sara Signature Vintage Diary Collection invites you to drift back in time to a slower and more gentle world where messages are hand-inked on notepaper and time is measured by the soft tick of a pocket watch

Everything in the collection is perfectly matching with a beautiful sepia-toned palette and intricate detailing, making it the ideal range for creating vintage-inspired cards, gifts, journals and much more. With a full range of dies wax seals, metal charms, sentiment rub-ons, patterned vellum, patterned ribbon and more there’s so many opportunities to get creative with this collection. So, lets turn the page and see what’s inside the Sara Signature Vintage Diary Collection!

The beautiful sepia and lilac background of this card creation allows the Pocket Watch Stamp & Die to take centre stage and really shine! And the addition of bronze coloured key and lock charms from the Metal Charms Set really brings it to life! Simple but super effective, this sweet card is the perfect way to let someone know how much they mean to you.

This adorable card is the perfect way to let the bookworms in your life know you’re thinking of them! Books, letters and a cute Feathered Quill feature give the impression of the messy desk of a book-lover, piled high with new reads just waiting to be picked up! And, setting the whole thing off perfectly is bow from the Cotton Ribbon set with its elegant handwritten pattern.

This card is just lovely in lilac! Cute tags in decreasing sizes from the Tags and Banners set are the perfect backdrop for beautifully intricate designs from the Perfectly Parisian stamp set! The Cotton Ribbon and Traditional Jute Twine embellishments pack this project with texture, all finished with the crowning glory of a beautiful Wax Seal!

The ornate swirls and filigrees of the Key to My Heart set take the spotlight with this beautiful make, perfectly coloured to give the look of burnished gold! And for an even more authentic look, with the Page Edges set you can create the effect of a piece of paper or card torn from a book or spiral notepad! 

The intricate loops and filigrees of the Wooden Frame and Corner set create a gorgeous setting for this sweet stamp from the Adorning Sentiments set. And the contrasting coral and aqua tones juxtaposed with the soft patterned background and ribbon is the perfect inspiration to experiment with colour combinations!

We couldn’t get through a whole blog post without mentioning the paper pads included in the Sara Signature Vintage Diary Collection! Each of the 6″ x 6″ and 12″ x 12″ paper pads and the 12″ x 12″ vellum pad are packed with a range of stunning designs, featuring swooping copperplate calligraphy, gently faded illustrations, stamps and roses all in a warm ivory, blush and sepia palette. 

Well, we’ve come to the final page of this little guide to the Sara Signature Vintage Diary Collection – but this is only the first chapter! There’s so much to explore in this range, and we can’t wait to see what you create!
