Vintage Valentine
















Wow, two posts in two days. Who knew I had it in me? Today I wanted to post my latest creation of this Vintage Valentine Book. I wanted everything to look really aged and I found just the right mix of papers and images to help me accomplish the look. I used images form Fairy Davis' website, papers from My Minds Eye and a chipboard album from Maya Road. A little grungeboard, a little glitter and a lot of ink....leads to one ages looking mini album.

Hi, Carol. I arrived here from the Fairy Davis blog to let you know her pretty this album is. Awesome work!

And, I was reading your tip there for the freezer paper ironed on fabric for printing. Wanted to ask you...is this Reynolds freezer paper that says Plastic Coated? I want to try this and need to buy the right paper, winkwink.

I would be forever indebted to you if you would answer. I will check the email follow up box so you can reply here, or you can email me or comment on my blog! Would love to have a visit from ya. xoxo

Thanks so so much,
Aimeslee
