This picture is of some of my ancestors, this one has been a very intriguing one for me. I've spent the last 5 years trying to figure out who these ladies are. You see we have lots of twins and triplets born in our family around the same time so I am not sure which set they are! lol I love this photo and the outfits they are wearing!!

I started out with a piece of 12 x 12 Early Espresso card stock. On the left side I then cut a piece of 12 x 12 Old Olive cad stock, on the side I used the Scallop Trim Border Punch. I took the En Francais Background Stamp; inked in Old Olive and then stamped onto Old Olive card stock.

Tip~ The En Francais Background Stamp works wonderfully for giving you projects that vintage look and feel!!!

I then took the stamp from Nature Walk Stamp Set; inked in Very Vanilla Craft and stamped all over the Old Olive card stock. I sponged the edges with Old Olive ink.

Tip~ Using neutral colored Craft Inks, gives the project a subtle soft look and feel, when using craft inks you can either heat set with the Heat Tool or lay that piece of to the side and attach it to your project once the Craft Ink dries so it won't smear.

I cut two different patterns of Botanical Gazette DSP. I glued the dark brown piece over the top of the Old Olive card stock. I took the Scallop Trim Border Punch to one side of the other piece. I then sponged the edge with Early Espresso ink.

Tip~To keep with the flow of the layout I made sure to face the punched edge the same way as the punched edge on the Old Olive piece.

I cut a piece of Old Olive card stock. I took the En Francais Background Stamp; inked it in Old Olive and stamped around the edges. I took the stamp from the Nature Walk Stamp Set; inked it Very Vanilla Craft Ink and stamped aorund the edges. Once dry I sponged the edges in Old Olive.

I cut a piece of Frist Editon DSP. I took the stamp from Nature Walk Stamp Set and colored it with the Stampin Write Markers Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive. I then stamped onto the First Edition DSP. I took the bird from the Nature Walk Stamp Set; inked in Early Espresso and stamped it in the bottom left hand corner. I took the no. 147 stamp from the Nature Walk Stamp set; inked it in Early Espresso and stamped around the edges. I sponged the edge with Early Espresso ink. I then over lapped the border on the left hand side with this paper. I cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock, I punched out the edge with the Scallop Trim Border Punch. I then sponged the edge with Early Espresso ink. I slid it under the First Edition DSP and had the punched border facing the opposite way of the others to tie the page together.

Tip~ Create your own background paper with the supplies you have on hand, this is a great cost effective way to scrapbook!!!

I printed my picture out in a darker brown setting so it would stand out more on this page. I made a photo mat for it using Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive card stock. I then made sure to leave room at the bottom to add there names when I find them out. I wrapped Crochet Trim 1/2 Chantilly around the bottom of the picture, on top I wrapped Natural Hemp Twine. I then placed an Antique Brad off the right and popped it up with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Now comes all the little details!! I love the ruffle on there dresses so to tie it in I took the 1/2 Seam Binding Cherry Cobbler and created my own ruffle down the left hand side. I thenn added Jewesl Basic Pearls to the ribbon and layout. I made a bow out of the 1/8 Early Espresso Taffeta Ribbon and Natural Hemp and added that to the left. I then added a Trinket Crown to it. These are another great little item for vintage stuff!!! I took the Big Shot and Timeless Type Junior Alphabet and die cut Sisters out in Early Espresso card stock. I know the picture was taken around the 1800's so I created a little tag using the Decorative Label Punch and a piece of Natural Ivory card stock. I sponged the edge with Early Espresso ink.

Tip~ To help with your scrapbooking pull little details from your pictures like the ruffle, buttons, fringe and etc. and incorporate it into your layout.

Wowzier! There sure was a lot to this page!! lol Hope you enjoyed this layout and tips!
