Please see yesterday's entry on the Papermaze blog for the first of my May projects using Carta Bella 'Old World Travel' collection.
I love the texture and the heavier weight of the Carta Bella papers. This collection is no exception and has a range of colours and elements which are ideal for masculine and travel layouts and cards. I have used this collection to create the first of a series of heritage layouts about my great grandfather Frederick Henry Holder and this one is all about his work with the Railway Service.
Frederick (front row, centre) worked for the railway for a total of 49 years, ending his working life in December 1927 as Foreman Porter at Bickley Station, near Bromley. He came here from Cannon Street where he had previously worked for five years.
I used :
Bazzill in Lagoon, Stonehenge and Thunder
From the Old World Travel collection - Globes, Border Strips and Dear To Me papers
Ephemera pack, Element Sticker sheet and Enamel Dots
Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Inks.
Bo Bunny Soirée Brads
'Engraver' Alphabet Stickers by Prima
Thanks for looking
