Reminisce - Olde Curiosity Shoppe


This is my favorite photo of my aunt Ellie as a young girl. I just love the backgrounds they used for photos back then.

I used “Mercurial Masterpiece” from the Olde Curiosity Shoppe collection to create a frame for my page. I inked the inside of the frame with Distress Ink (Barn Door). The photo is a copy so I inked it with Distress Ink (Vintage Photo) to give it an aged effect. 

Next I began layering my embellishments using 3-D flowers and Graphic 45 chipboard buttons.

I used a gorgeous die from Heartfelt Creations to create the lacey red and ivory border.  The title was created using the Technique Tuesday Initially Yours - R stamp set.

I inked my page using Barn Door Distress Ink.

This collection is amazing and when using it you will find that your crafting possibilities are endless.
