This is a very special project designed for a friend who wanted to scrapbook her father who has recently passed away. It was a challenge for me – masculine adult and vintage are both themes I don't do a great deal in my layouts.
Was good! I asked my mother for some digital scans of my grandfather and opted to use this special one of him at our old grand piano.
I did not crop this photo on purpose – too cute! This is my office; I'm so lucky to work at home with these munchkins keeping me company.
The background is created with the Hardwood stamp and the Flowering Flourishes stamp set. The musical circle is the Naturals Composition papers inked up with Early Espresso.
The border banners are done featuring the Etcetera papers – ones which I adore. They have an unusual colour combination, and it's quite striking!
The little journaling tag tucked behind the photo is made using the Angled Tag Topper punch and a few more stamps. It's important to add the journaling, and hidden tags are a nice way to include items you may not want public or that detract from the design.
