The challenge over at Scrap & Stamp this week was to create a heritage LO. This is a photo of my maternal grandmother when she was a young lady.
I decided to use the "That's Amore" papers from CTMH. They just have that old time, vintage feel I think. The stamp in the right hand corner is from the Picture This SS I received FREE at the CTMH convention last summer in DC. The verse is a stamp from The Present SS, which debuted in CTMH's 2010 Autumn Winter IB. I punched(Boho Blossoms from SU!) and layered the flowers, then secured with pewter brads. I used a Fiskars border punch to create the decorative mat accent. I hand cut the photo corners from Chocolate CS. The crochet ribbon and twisted metal clips are also CTMH. I used the edge distresser and foam tool with Chocolate ink to "antique" the journaling square. And since I don't own a sewing machione, I added stitching by hand.
TIP: To keep holes evenly spaced, use a piece of plastic canvas and poke with a needle or paper piercer.
Thanks for looking :)
