Vintage Sewing Machine Box created by Lisa

Hello Beauties!
I wanted to share with you all what Lisa made with the Vintage sewing Machine Box Template. Lisa is a customer of Ooh la-la and she was kind enough to share with me her creation! You can check out her blog at and You Tube ( she also did a video on the box)
If you would like to be featured on this blog please send me your creations that you have made from the products in our store. Send your picture YT link and blog link to
Thank you Lisa for sending me your creation and supporting Ooh-la-la Vintage Treasures!

On another subject, I will be moving this weekend through next weekend. My Hubby works about 200 miles from our house and has been driving back and forth everyday, so we have decided to move closer to his work. This move will be good and it will save us about $700 in gas he spends to go back and forth to work every month ( more craft spending money for me :), lol!) So if you order templates it may take me a little bit to send them out to you. I will not have internet hooked up yet till after July 1st. I will be going to my daughters house once a day ( in the evening) to check orders. Please be patient and understanding during our move. I will keep you all posted as things progress! Doreen will be checking for product orders and such in my absence. So if you have any questions or problems please email her at

Have a Great couple of weeks!

Alternative look at the mini hatbox template

Hello ladies,
I wanted to share with you all the project I altered using the "Mini Hatbox Template". Well, it's not a box but it's a hat! That's right, you see a hat and not a box! That's one of the alternatives to this template. You can make a top hot to alter. This was such much to create and the possibilities are endless of the type of styles  you can create too! I will try to do a YouTube video some time this week on how I created this hat! If you would like a little more information on this project you can visit my blog.
I would like to thank all the ladies who follow this blog that showed up at "Girl's Night" on Ustream. I had a lot of fun and I'm excited to do another one soon!

Hope you all have a creative week!

Mini Album Kits Coming Soon!

Hello Beauties,
I am in the process of putting together mini album kits. Each kit will contain an exclusive shaped chipboard mini album and matching box template to put your mini in. There will be lots of delicious goodies and beautiful papers. Here is my question for you..... How many of you would be interested in purchasing these kits? I am trying to figure out how many kits to make. Remember the shaped chipboard mini album and matching box template will only be sold with the kits! The kit that I am working on is going to be called the Vintage Glamor Mini Album Kit. I have designed a vintage perfume bottle for the mini album and the box will match. I can't show you pictures yet because I don't want to give away too much! All I know is that I am just loving this kit! So if you are interested leave me a comment so I know about how many kits to make!
I hope you all have a great week! I will be putting a flower tutorial up on the Store's You Tube channel today. If you are not a subscriber you can find the link to the channel on the left side of the blog.

New Template!

Hello Beauties!
I have 1 of the 3 new templates available for purchase! This one is a Vintage Sewing Machine Box! I had a lot of fun decorating and designing this one!! Here is what I created from the template

                                                         This is the front of the box on 1 side
                                              I covered the box with sewing pattern pieces that I tea dyed, lots of lace and some paper scraps. Then I painted the sewing machine with gray paint and used black metallic rub and silver metallic rub on the sewing machine. I raided my Grandma's sewing stash for the wood thread spool, scissors, vintage buttons, and bobbin.

                                                              Front of the other side
 I used some WOC roses and pieces of fabric. The fabric I made to look like the machine is sewing it. I wrapped lace around the thread spool and draped it across the box.

                                                                The inside of the box
I covered the inside of the box with tea dyed sewing pattern pieces. To tea dye the pattern pieces I used a cookie sheet with sides and laid the pieces in flat. You will want to be very careful because the pattern pieces become very delicate when they are wet and tear very easily! I used Mod Podge to stick down the pieces all over the box ( inside and out).

I was thinking it would be cute to make a mini album to put inside the box for a friend. You could title the mini " Sew Glad We Are Friends" or something like that. I will have to make a new box to do that because this box is for me, lol! Really, I can't part with it because I used all the goodies from my Grandma's sewing stash that I got when she passed away. The tiny thimble I used, when I was a little girl I used to play with it and put it on my finger while my Grandma had her sewing kit out to do repairs. The scissors I remember her using to cut the thread she used and I thought they were soooo cool because of the design on them. I think I will use the box to put the rest of my Grandma's sewing goodies in for safe keeping!
So, if you purchase the template, I want you to show me what you have created out of it. You can link it to my YT Video on my sewing machine box creation or you can send me pictures. If we like your Sewing Machine box we will send you a gift! So start creating!

Have a creative rest of the week!
