My mother and her younger sister in the 1940's

For this layout I used a piece of Blue Fern Studios paper for the background.

Beaumont - Remnants
Blue Fern Studios

I added smudges of yellow ochre Colorbox chalk ink randomly over the background to coordinate with the little flowers and the chipboard border.

These are the dies I used:

Rectangle Frames
 (AliExpress - HamyHo Cardstitched Store)
Doily Die
Paradise Ferns
- Tattered Lace
Flourish #13
- Cheery Lynn Designs

These are the chipboard pieces I used:

Floral Lace Border
- Creative Embellishments

Thorn Flourish Pair
- Creative Embellishments

I heat-embossed the Floral Lace Border with Ranger Embossing Antiquities Ocher, then traced around the edges with an orange marker to add a bit more dimension to the colour.

I heat embossed the Thorn Flourish Pair with Stampendous Frantage Embossing Enamel Aged Ochre and traced around the edges with a dark brown marker to accentuate the edges.

Here are some more close-ups:

The little flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts, the larger ones are by Prima.

Thank you so much for taking a look!


  1. Oh my goodness this is an awesome creation. I love the dies and chipboard you selected to create the scene. Perfection!
