Vintage Memories Layout by Nancy

Posted on June 15 2018

Hello, everyone!
It's Nancy here...and I'm so excited to be sharing my first project with you!
From the first time, I saw these fabulous foiled papers I was fascinated!
I was so happy to play with all the products and see what they could do.
I've included a number of techniques in my first project
I began with the beautiful Magical Foiled Paper Variety Pack.
Here's what I made:

Isn't all the foiled paper gorgeous?
I began with a 12 X 12 black cardstock base.
First, I took two 6 X 6 pieces of the Gold/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper.
Using the Ghost Ink, I stamped the Oma's Postcard Stamp on the center of each piece.
This video HERE shows you exactly how it works!
It is so cool!

Since I wanted these pieces to look like old letters,
I played with them until they did. 
I used a distressing tool on some of the edges, 
I did a little tearing, crumpling, folding and curling!
Now they look like old letters that have been read over and over again, right?
Folded in half they would measure 3 X 6, 
so I created a 3 x 6 envelope out of cardstock. 
I wanted it to look aged too, so I inked it and crumpled it.

I positioned the letter pieces in place on my page,
and tucked the envelope in place underneath them.
What else would be tucked in with an old love letter?
Rose petals, of course!
I die-cut a large and medium rose from the Ruby/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper
I cut the petals apart and curled them up with my fingers. 
This foiled paper holds the shape beautifully. 
I scattered them on the page and glued them in place.

For the title of my page, I die-cut "MEMORIES" out of chipboard.
I die-cut it again out of the Ruby/Ruby Starstruck Foiled Paper.
I added two die-cut swirls from the Ruby/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper.

One final thing found in an old love letter, along with rose petals,
would be old photos, right?
So I found these vintage wedding photos that fit the page perfectly.
I printed them out and matted them with the Ebony/Ebony Starstruck Foiled Paper.
I adhered the matted photos in place with foam tape, to lift them off the page a bit.

Here's one final look at the finished page:

These Rinea Foiled Papers really are as fascinating as they first appeared!
I look forward to sharing more projects with you soon!
