Hi, Friends! I’m back with my last page using the Simple Stories Vintage Blessings collection … for now at least! 🙂
One of my volunteer opportunities at church a few years ago was getting together with the pre-teen girls to create crafts. On this particular day I had them over to my house to create an art piece featuring their family tree … with the members of their family written on the leaves.
I used my Fiskars Large Hexagon punch to create a fun border down the left side of the page with several of the papers from the Vintage Blessings collection. On a few of the shapes, I popped up these gold glitter hearts from the American Crafts DIY Shop 2 collection.
I layered some 6×6 patterned papers, Maya Road kraft envelopes, and doilies from my stash behind the photo. I used a dot border stamp from the Stampin’ Up Watercolor Wings stamp set and Crumb Cake ink on the cream background paper to add a bit of visual depth. The two leaf pins accenting the tabs and phrase stickers are also some oldies-but-goodies from my stash.
This cluster around my title was a lot of fun to create. I placed the words on a mini chalkboard from my stash (I believe I purchased this at JoAnn a year or so ago) and then tucked in several die cuts and stickers all around it. I pulled out a wood veneer baby deer from an old Crate Paper baby collection and added him to the mix, as well.
I used a wood tag from the same Crate Paper baby collection to accent the photo.
This one turned out quite feminine and textured with all the lacy doilies and details. I love it!
