31 Pages in 31 Days: VIntage Anniversary

2015 31 Pages in 31 Days SOMHS header-001

Welcome to Day Twenty-One of 31 Pages in 31 Days, Song of My Heart Stamper's exclusive blog series and challenge! Every day in August I am posting a scrapbook page or spread for your inspiration, as we strive towards our goal of getting 31 total pages done for the month. The pages people are making for the challenge are marked with the hastag #31pagesin31days and can also be viewed on the Facebook 31 Pages in 31 Days support group.

Today's pages are a vintage-themed anniversary layout! Love how easy the patterns in the Typeset specialty papers make it to mix and match antique-inspired themes.

Vintage Anniversary Spread SOMHS

Since we were making these pages last night in class for Scrapbooking Summer School, I kept the layout fairly generic. I also made the mats for the two main photos vertical, since most vintage wedding or anniversary photographs were taken vertically. If your photos are from the Polaroid-era, however, you could easily add two square photos to each vertical mat instead.

Lace and vintage go hand in hand, and this page has two kinds of lace, twine, burlap and a ruffled trim plus a vintage-inspired Designer Button, to boot! Adding in the torn paper strip and the sponging, the whole spread is a fun textural exercise.

Vintage Anniversary Spread Detail

I used the Timeless Love stamp set for my headline and sayings, stamped in the new Archival Black ink. The flower sprays were stamped in Crumb Cake ink on the Crumb Cake paper for a tone-on-tone look that won't draw attention away from the journaling.
