Vintage Labels

Firstly, I would like to thank everyone for all the lovely comments I have received over the last two days, it is always good to get comments on my blog and know that other people are getting inspiration and ideas from my projects.
I do hope you enjoyed all the wonderful projects on your way around the blog hop, I certainly did, and now have many more ideas and new things to make 🙂  I think I need to find an extra day each week, just to fit in all the new projects I want to make!!

Sale-a-bration Blog Hop

It’s time for another blog hop from the ESAD (Extremely Special Aussie Demonstrators) group, this time to celebrate the start of Sale-a-bration. And this time we have even more blogs taking part, which means more ideas and more inspiration for you. So I hope you have fun on your way around.
My project today is a Scrapbook page using the Vintage Labels Stamp Set. I wanted to do a page in a “vintage” style, and have used a masking technique to create a border with the stamp. I will be adding a small journalling block underneath the photo, but I like to keep my journalling a little private, so you don’t get to see that bit! 🙂

Stamp Sets: Vintage Labels (Only available during Sale-a-bration), Baroque Motifs.

Cardstock: Basic Black, Naturals Ivory, Belle Bleu Designer Series Paper.

Inks: Basic Black Classic Ink and Marker

Accessories: Wide Oval Punch, Sponge Dauber, Black Brads from Vintage Brads.
