Hello my name is Heather Jacob and I live in Adelaide the capital city of South Australia

I am so thrilled to be GD this month over at Maja Design. Thanks so much Jenny for asking me. Firstly I have created a layout using a selection of papers from the delish Vintage Summer Basics collection and the Vintage Spring Basics collection.

I adore how the papers blend together and compliment each other. They are magical to work with. I love to add lots of layers in my work and sometimes you will have to look closely to spy all the little bits and pieces .

The title “Vintage” is from Collections Elements and the washi tape is Tim Holtz. I have also randomly stamped with Prima and Hero Arts stamps in black ink. I took this gorgeous metal heart from an old necklace. The stunning photo of Miss C. was taken by Tara of Simply Photographic.vintage cluster 2

Die cuts are a fave of mine and here I have used Spellbinders/Shapabilites/Back to basics Tags, Spellbinders Nestabilities/fancy tags and Vintage brads. I added a divine 2crafty chipboard heart. This is inked in Kaisercraft slate ink. Tim Holtz/Alterations/distressed Doily, German scrapware and EK Success border punch/bubbles.

I selected Vintage Summer basics 1903 and 1904 9th of March from Vintage Spring basics.Vintage-Summer-Basics-P1Vintage-Springr-Basics-P

This was so much fun to create and I will be back next Saturday to show-case a Friendship card thanks so much for looking at my work and taking the time to leave some words for me.
