My great-grandmother Rachel

For this layout, I used a piece of Ciao Bella paper for the background.

La Traviata paper pad - Ciao Bella

These are the dies I used:

Doily 3
- ScrapMan
- Tattered Lace
Mini Ruffled Rectangles
- Tattered Lace
Large Sweet Peony
- Heartfelt Creations
Small Sweet Peony
- Heartfelt Creations
Happy Birthday Frame
- ZFParty (AliExpress)
My Favorite Things
- Four Corners
Flower Circle
-Store No.4772042 (AliExpress)

I made the burgundy flowers using the Sweet Peony dies, Heartfelt Creations 3D Floral Basics Shaping Mold as well as the stylus tool from their Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.

3D Floral Basics Shaping Mold - Heartfelt Creations

Instead of misting the white die-cuts with water before running the mold through my BigShot, I brushed them with Lindy's Stamp Gang Burnt Umber Vintage Spray and Autum Maple Crimson Shimmer Spray (a very messy process but I liked the end result).  I then used a glue gun to layer the die-cut flowers and finished them off with some Prills in the center.

These are the chipboard pieces I used:

Celtic Border 3
- Creative Embellishments

Dripping Heart Lace Border
- Creative Embellishments

Fancy Trim #7
- Dusty Attic

I heat-embossed the Creative Embellishment borders with Stampendous Seasonings Embossing Enamel and the Dusty Attic Trim with Stampendous Aged Scarlet Embossing Enamel.


This is the mould I used:

Curio Findings - Prima

I used Sculpey UltraLight to make the curio pieces.  After baking and cooling the pieces, I painted them with brown Prima Rust Paste.  I then rubbed and brushed them lightly with a couple of colours of Prima Metallique Wax (Rich Copper and Old Silver). 

I also used the Rich Copper wax on the metal flourish and little plastic medallion pieces in the flower clusters.

Thank you so much for taking a look.


  1. Stunning Page! I’m going to have to try Sculpey because I have a hard time with paper clay.

    1. Thanks Vicki! I never liked the results with paper clay either. Everything would warp or crack. The Ultra Light Sculpey is pretty easy to work with. You can soften it in your hands unlike other Sculpey clays which need a machine to soften them. It is a bit stretchy however and unmolding complicated or delicate pieces before baking can be tricky.

  2. Very attractive layout Tracy! Love your chose of colors, dies & moulds. Very vintage. The photo is just fantastic! Very beautiful details!

  3. ALL of your work is just spectacular from the scrapbook pages to your fairy gardens, everything is so beautiful!
