This is a picture I did of my grandparents along with the account of their marriage that appeared in the newspaper. I used an embellie which looked like an old postcard which I ran through the cuttlebug and embossed to make it look like script. A little ink rubbed on it and "tada" aged!! A little postage stamp with a "5" on it near the bottom of their picture signifies they had 5 children.
This page includes a picture of my great-grandmother, my sister and me celebrating out January birthdays together. I was able to copy her handwriting from a letter my mother had. Made a lollipop flower attached to a coffee sticker (because she always fixed us coffee with lots of milk when we visited her house) A tag stamped with the word "memories" was perfect for some journaling of my childhood memories. My great-grandma lived to be 103.
And this is me, 2 months old! Also among one of my earlier attempts at vintage. Yikes! Not sure I like referring to myself as "vintage". LOL The bib was made with a round scallop punch. I then took a 1" circle punch and cut out the neck hole, added some ties and I came up with a bib for my layout. I tore out a piece of paper with the city name where I was born and added the "56" on the tag to indicate my birth year.
If you have not yet tried any vintage scrapping, I hope you will try it. I think layering and more layering is the key to making your page look antique like.
