Learning good manors

Here’s my DT layout for Kraft It Up!. This month the challenge is to create a vintage inspired layout – on Kraft Cardstock or Kraft Patterned Paper. I’m not a vintage scrapper. So, what to do? Copy someone else? No, I decided to create a layout in my usual style but to use photo, papers and embellishments that look old. Here’s my interpretation:
The photo shows DD and DH when they drink to toast. As you can see DD has learned to rise her glass, look the other person in his eyes, and nod slightly she drinks to toast. Quite cute when you’re four years old. :)
I did a lot of layering, added a lot of gesso and doodled some. Here’s some close ups:
When I have your attention I also want to tell you that ARTastic’s is going to celebrate (Inter)National Scrapbooking Day at May 4th. I recommend you to go here and have a look!! There will be a lot of prizes to win!

Thanks for looking! I hope you want to play along both at Kraft It Up! and at ARTastic!!! Have a nice weekend!


  1. Hello Helene, this is lovely! Gorgeous photo and I like how you made the vintage criteria fit your style.

  2. How beautiful!
    I truly love the simplicity of craft background
    highlighting the artistic creativity of
    layers and Boita black and white photo!

  3. Åhh så nydelig. Og et fint, fint billede af din mand og din datter, som skåler. :) Jeg synes du har klaret udfordringen rigtigt godt. :)

  4. Awsome page!!! I love how you have created a vintage LO using old looking papers.
    Denne siden ble jo en riktig så flott vintage side. Mange herlige papire som bærer preg av gammelt i alle dine lag på lag, og et skikkelig "gulligt" foto. Her skal det skåles :)))) Denne siden likte jeg veldig godt
    Ha en riktig så flott søndag :)
