Linda Albrecht

Welcome the super-talented Linda Albrecht to Vintage Street Market! Linda made some amazing projects using our two new lines,  Dimestore Vogue and Party Games, complemented with some of the vintage materials that we also carry in the shop.

About Linda:

Hi, my name is Linda Albrecht.  I have been married for 30 years and am a mother to 4 beautiful children that are my inspiration and my heart.  I am a native Minnesotan and was raised in a creative family full of artists and talented souls.  One art project or another has always been a part of my life.  I started scrapbooking about 10 years ago to preserve my favorite family photos and have been working for paper manufacturers ever since.  I love to see if I can come up with something new using paper in combination with other textiles and mixed medias.  My loves are stitchery, paper mache, photography, fabric, paint, decorating, and scrapbooking.

More of Linda’s work can be found on her blog: www.lindaalbrecht.typepad.com

Dimestore Vogue

Sewing Box:
I adhered papers from the “Dimestore Vogue” collection onto a small case with a handle…the perfect size for a portable sewing box to hold threads, needles, etc.  To embellish it, I used the papers to make small pinwheels to represent flowers and added the cardstock buttons from the package.

Party Games

Celebration Garland:

This garland would be a fun addition to a party.  I made pinwheels, punched 1 1/2″ circles, and punched small flowers from the papers in the “Party Games” collection.  The centers of the pinwheels have a 1/2″ red foil circle punched from the foil provided in the kit.  Not only do they hide the glue which holds the pinwheels together, but they add a fun pop of shiny color!


Be sure to have a really large needle to string on the pinwheels and cut 2 pieces for every flower and circle so that the string runs between each.

Party Hat & Treat Bags:

I made the cutest party hat from the paper in the “Party Games” collection.  I love the red foil that is also in the kit that I used for the accordion- folded circles behind the big buttons.  I also added a couple of cardstock diamond shapes from the kit which I lined with glitter glue.


The Treat Bags are also made from the paper in the kit which are on the opposite side of the dotted paper.  More red foil was used to make “ribbons” for the bags which I topped off with a “To & From” ticket and a button.

Happy Birthday Card:

I used several cardstock elements from the “Party Games” kit for this fun card.  The Vintage Street Market Bingo Card was used as a base, wrapped in colored string and then topped off with a couple of their cute plastic buttons.


Thank you Linda! These projects using the new lines are truly inspiring, and we’re thrilled you were able to share them with us!
