This is my mini scrapbook page using a stamp set from the new mini catalogue coming out on Tuesday.It's called Open Sea. and is a lovely stamp set for the men in your life. Here I have decorated my page with three of the stamps in the set, there is a lovely stamp of a ship which I didn't use as I didn't have room for it on this page.
I have a passion for vintage looking scrapbook pages so this stamp set works well with my style of scrapbooking. I just wish I had more time for scrapbooking.
I do wish I had printed off his name rather write it and added a title but in my rush to get this finished for Saturday these things got left off. This page has now become the property of stampin' up.
Perhaps I will do it again but with the missing elements.
I used a photo of my grandfather's brother Harry, who spent many years in the navy as my focal point. I used very vanilla, early expresso and crumb cake card stock along with some DPS in crumb cake . I gold embossed the edges of the card dark stock and daubed the edges of the DSP and lighter card stock.
