Something old,

May 18, 2019

Something new!  Today’s page shows off a photo of my Dad taken when he first joined the Navy at the age of 21.  My Dad always wanted to go to sea and tried to join the Merchant Navy when he was 16 but his parents wouldn’t sign the papers for him to join.  So he got an apprenticeship and as soon as he turned 21 he joined the Navy.  I have used Whisper White 12″ x 12″ card as the base for my page.  I attached a 6″ strip of Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper to the left hand side .  I attached the photo to Night of Navy card and slipped the Night of Navy card under the Designer Series Paper to offset the photo. I printed my journaling onto Whisper White card using the Computer and used the Stitched Nested Labels to cut it out.  I stamped the sailing ship image from the Sailing Home stamp set onto scrap Whisper White card using Night of Navy ink.  The image is cut out using the co-ordinating Smooth Sailing Dies.  The Stitched Nested Labels, the Sailing Home stamp set and the Smooth Sailing Dies will be available when the new catalogue launches in June.

This page turned out just the way I imagined it, with the photo being the main focus.

Bye for now,
