The Life Stories paper collection by Mintay that came in the March Tres Jolie Kit provides the perfect opportunity to scrap this photo of my paternal grandmother that was probably taken in the mid to late 1930’s.

I just love the paper – Sheet 1 – that I’ve used for the base of my layout. The vintage colors are perfect and the details are amazing: flowers and clocks and old bulbs and rusty hinges and best of all, that wonderful doily image that makes a perfect bit of matting.
Sheet 9 is a fussy cutter’s dream, full of flowers and vintage ephemera. I chose several floral clusters, as well as a mailbox and a canning jar to use as embellishments.

I used a bit of the Prima paper to mat my photo, placing a small piece of thin chipboard between the layers to create a little dimension. After adhering this to my base, I started to add the cutout flowers in layers down the side and across the bottom. 

Next, I selected some of the beautiful blooms that came in the kit to place on top. 

Once they were glued down, I tucked in a resin coin and some of the gorgeous vintage lace that Kim included in the package.

A few more of the cutouts – a rusty mailbox on the side and a hanging jar in the top corner – were added.

 To finish my page, I selected an ephemera card to tuck under my embellishments. (And yes, that's where I got the title for my page!)
