Two Great Books

I want to share two books I have that I think are just awesome. I bought them from Michaels over a year ago and have never done anything with them. They contain hundreds of vintage images such as postcards, borders, frames, letters, and labels. You can copy the images from the book or use the CD it comes with and do it on your computer. I randomly picked some pages to show you some of the pictures in the book. I am telling you they are gorgeous! I am planning to pick out the "lovey" and "Valentiney" looking stuff and do some simple V. Day projects. Hopefully I'll have something to show before the week is over!

Those books look beautiful. I love books with beautiful pictures and writing. I just like to spend an afternoon curled up looking through them all! I am excited to see your valentine's crafts! I need to be less of a valentine scrouge though and make something myself.

Wow! That is handy for all kinds of projects! Thanks for sharing. I'm going to have to keep my eyes open for some of these. I've seen CDs with images on sale on eBay but didn't know if I trust them or not.
