Always like to throw a little vintage in the mix for anyone who has heritage photos to scrap... plus, let's face it, any excuse to use those adorable flowers from the 2013 spring Occasions Catalog is reason enough! This page came about because of the great Midnight Muse journalling box design in the Print Poetry Designer Series Paper stack. I also used the Midnight Muse handwriting design, too, as the vintage style is famous for mixing patterns.
Here's a closeup of the main embellishment on the page. Love that scalloped tulle--hope we get it in a bazillion colors in the next catalog!
We also made this masculine page with the new Ticket punch and That's the Ticket stamp set. It's hard to see in the photo, but there are tickets stamped in Pool Party on the background mat as well. I drew the color scheme for this page from the Sale A Bration papers that you can get for FREE right now with any $50 order. It's just one of 19 different freebies to choose from during Sale A Bration 2013!
TIP: This page was a lot of the Scrapbook Marathon attendees' first time playing with the Core'Dinations cardstock line, so they really enjoyed using our new sanding blocks system. I loved the tone-on-tone look of using Early Espresso Big Shot letters on the same color background and sanding the edges so they stood out. The headline almost seemed carved from wood when we were done.
More to come! Are you sorry you missed the Marathon? Yeah, I thought so! Be sure to subscribe to my blog so you don't miss news and updates and you can join us next time. We got so much done!
Both are pretty, but that first page blew my socks off.....you owe me for new socks :D

I love both pages...I wouldn't have thought of putting the letters on top of another piece of the Coredinations card stock. I really like the look of that...AND I LOVE those little flowers too. :)
