Thanks for the comments about my heritage layouts. I do love them. I just feel so compelled to get Jamie's early days recorded, that I don't have the same enthusiasm for heritage pages that I used to. I do still love looking through all my old photos there. I have some amazing photos.
What's the difference between heritage and vintage? Hmmm... For me, it's about the era of the photos. Heritage would be 100 years old or so. So something like this:
But it's also about the colours and the elements on the page. Dark colours. Browns, blues, deep greens. Metal elements, mica, heavy laces, twine, hessian etc etc.
Vintage on the other hand is probably 1930s, 1940s, 1950s, 1960s (although the 60s may also be retro). So something like this:
More colour. Think vintage postcards. Think vintage picture books.
At least, that's my take on it.
OK, another layout share. This one's in Scrapbook Creations this month.
Look, the Train!
Journaling: Every day on our walk, we walk along the train track near our house. And yesterday, as a train rattled past, I found myself wondering “when did I get so into trains?”. Because every time we saw one, I’d carry on like an idiot: “Look Jamie, a traaaaain!!!!!!! Wow!!!! Look at that traaaaain!!!! Did you see it???? Did you see the big train???? Gee wiz!!!!!” And there I’d be jigging around on the street corner like it was the best thing that had ever happened to us. So, this is the start of stereotyping…
There's a step-by-step how-to here.
Hope everyone had a great Mothers Day.
I've spent most of the day grumpy. Unfortunately. Through jangling pain shooting through my left hand everytime I bang my thumb against something (which is often, I've discovered). Yesterday, after my vacuum cleaner snapped in half (another story altogether!), I decided to clean up the garden instead. I managed to get my thumb in the way of the pruning shears. I now have a slightly flatter thumb than before. And it hurts! All those nerve endings. Yeow! At the moment, I am sitting here with a big plastic guard over it. Which makes typing interesting.
So, we had a quiet day. But it was nice, nevertheless. Phil cooked tea :D.
Have a great week
