Vintage Vogue for Gottacraft

My lovely friend Sandra, of Gottacraft - she who tempts me with all kinds of delicious stash at every crop - has been kind enough to put one of my LOs on her shop blog.  I got to play with the gorgeous new Vintage Vogue papers from Pink Paislee.  I'm not a big user of pink or purple but I just loved the telephone directory paper and the pale pink patterns and as soon as I saw the chipboard it made me think of my Mum, who grew up in the 50s.  There are a lot more patterned papers as well, but I wanted to limit the colours to the chipboard.



I've been wanting to scrap the photo and show off the wedding dress she made for herself for ages so this was the perfect opportunity - especially with the 'cotton reel' wooden buttons which were perfect for a sewing story.

I haven't stitched on it, as I'm certainly not the needlewoman my Mum is (sadly!), but I did indulge in some punches, one of which has stitch-like tracery on it.

With thanks to my lovely crop friends who lent me punches and the Cricut to cut my title - I'm so pleased about having done this LO and can't wait to show my mum!  I've got a few more photos from her wedding to play with, so watch this space....

Thanks to Sandra too for the vote of confidence.
