Vintage Hollywood Card Collection

A few cards I made with the last of my Vintage Hollowood collection by Graphic 45 for the Papermaze Blog. The large detailed images from these papers make them ideal for card making.  I have had fun designing with these papers together with a few embellishments and tools from my stash, and the shop. Please see the shop and the blog for details

That's my third and final post using these amazing papers.
Back with some new Bo Bunny papers next month.

Thanks for looking

All Aboard

Another Papermaze Crop layout - this was from May. The photo shows Andrew having a good time at the old fashioned fun fair at Wroxham Barns, Norfolk, back in 1996 when he was only 4 years old. The page was designed by Vanessa, and on this occasion I even used the same title she used as it was so appropriate to my photo. 

The patterned papers used for this layout were American Crafts - Rise and Shine - Samantha and Bo Bunny - Petal Lane - Happiness.

Who Do You Think You Are?

I made this layout using the Papermaze Crop Kit for April, a crop I was unable to attend, but happily I caught up with the kit the following month.

The family photo was a recent find and we knew it to be the sister of my great grandmother Susan Dunn. On the reverse of the photo it said Aunty Dot and Uncle Albert Allemandy, St Michaels Church, Wandsworth Common, Saturday 17th March 1951. However we had some difficulty finding out who Susan's sisters were, and eventually tracked them down through Ancestry. We couldn't find a Dot or Dorothy - it turned out that the brides real name was Estella! Hence the title of the layout 'Who Do You Think You Are?'

The papers used for this page designed by Vanessa, are from the Bo Bunny - Aryia's Garden collection. I added old letters stickers for my layout by Jillybean Soup.

Electric Picture Palace & Hollywood

Its about time I shared the second two Design Team layouts I made using the 'Vintage Hollywood' collection from Graphic 45 for the Papermaze Blog last month.

This first layout features photos of the Electric Picture Palace in Southwold, Suffolk.

This layout features a selection of snapshots from our visit to Hollywood a few years ago.
Please see the Papermaze blog to see how they were made and what products were used from the shop.
