Stylish Layout - Graphic 45

It was a wet and windy day in Melbourne so that sent me off to the Scrap room to create.  The Graphic 45 range- A Ladies Diary is jsut perfect for Vintage pages. So with that in mind I hunted out this photo of my grandmother from the late 1940s
I think ladies of that era always looked so elegant in their hats and finery!

For this Heritage LO I have used the following, which are available in the Wild About Scrap store
Other items used
  • black ink pad
  • black twine
  • title letters
  • black flower trim ( cut into individual flowers)
  • Pearls
  • pearl brads
  • black sheer ribbon
  • paper doiley

I made the paper flowers by punching some flowers using a large, medium and small retro flower punch, inking the edges and giving the petals some dimension- curling them etc.  Then I stacked them and added the pearl brad.
This Grahic 45 range is one of my all time favourites -so make sure you order some from Veronica before it is all sold out !!!

  1. I love your layout absolutely. I just love it when you find the perfect photo to go with such beautiful papers & emblishments, it's as tho they were made just for your photo.Love the flowers the've come up well. You have given me great inspiration now to look for a vintage type photo, tho I try to make modern day ones look vintage for a challenge .x

  2. Modern photos will work well elaine - especially if they are black and white - would have used some I have from a cruise a couple of years back if I didnt have soem like this of my nan !! Thanks for the lovely comments too xx

  3. What a gorgeous photo! The graphic 45 papers look fabulous. Lovely layout.
