My pages are 6x6 and mounted on very heavy chipboard. I used Tim's images from his seasonal paper stash as my focal. Many other of his goodies were used as well: antique linen distress stain, his new tissue paper and of course tissue tape.
The backs are adorned with faux postcards I made from some kraft paper. Some of them actually have burnt edges for interest.
I also added these cute little faux wax seals as a decorative element on the back. I learned how to do this from a crafty pal, Angela in her first online tutorial. Thanks for your inspiration Angela!
Each front layout is a little bit different. I used a new die cut my mom picked out for me for Christmas on her own, she did great! I am not sure I would have chosen it on my own, and I absolutely love it.
Another element you can see on this page are these darling square doilies. Another crafty pal resource here, thanks Cathwren! I aged them a bit with a few hits of distress stain. I had a different plan for them, but they were just too pretty to cut up. Spray adhesive was the secret to a durable page with no pesky loose edges.
I also used, gasp, stickers! The hearts were from Martha and have a delicious texture. They were a bit too pink for me, which I attended to with a little vintage photo ink.
I had a two different paper selections for the back. I love the clever use of an old postage stamp and a vintage air mail stamp. I just adore all things postal! I am also very grateful for the inspiration this little group provides me.
