Stampendous Layout!

Mother's Graduation
May, 1951

Sorry the photo quality is so bad...I had already taken this to my parent's house when I thought about taking a picture. Without my good camera or a proper spot to shoot it, the picture leaves a bit to be desired.

My mother's graduation took place in the Midwest where all the flowers were in bloom at a local park.  She recalls it being a beautiful Spring day and I wanted to give her a page that reflected that same feeling.

Here, though, you can better see the glimmer of the embossing powders! I love these! They add shimmer and shine to my projects without being so very glitter and bling!
On this page, I used the "Aged Rose, Ivory, and Aqua" powders and heated them from the underside.  You can see more of this "Encrusted Jewel technique" on U-Tube, courtesy of Fran at Stampendous.
The sweet little butterfly is K & Company, and the flowers are Prima!

I also heat embossed the Stampendous "Rose Corset" image onto a vellum envelope and included a little tag for my Mother's own journaling.

~Just something I wanted to share~
Have a wonderful day!

What a fun page, Jan! The Rose Corset is perfect for that theme, and the Aged Embossing Enamels look so terrific. I'll bet your mom was just thrilled! Thanks for sharing your layout with us!
