Suzanne: Tin Type

Good Morning! Suzanne here, hosting the blog today :)

I'm so excited to introduce you to one of the newest Quick Quotes releases: Tin Type!Check out this collection kit:

I have 2 projects to share with you today, using this vintage line :)  First, a layout from our November 2010 anniversary trip to California.  It took my husband a few minutes to realize the "Full House" reference, do you?

Wake Up, San Francisco!

These photos were taken from our hotel window.. sunset, overnight, and sunrise. Just beautiful! I used the title of the morning show on "Full House" as my title ;)

I altered the foam alphas I had on hand with the fabulous Powder Puff ink, in Baja Blue. The chalk inks make it easy to create custom titles to coordinate with the papers.  I also inked the edges of the Tin Type paper. I accented the sun rays with yellow glitter.

I added a journaling block from this cardstock sheet as a photo corner.

Orange Bazzill Cardstock


My husband and his father have been cleaning/renovating his Grandmother's home - and they found letters (TONS of them.. probably ALL of them) that his father had sent his mother when he was serving in the Army. How cool is that? She kept them in a manilla folder, each in their original envelopes.

When I received this vellum overlay from the Tin Type collection, I knew I wanted to incorporate it into this project:
I bought a wooden box at my local craft store and painted it brown. I adhered the vellum overlay to the lid and embellished with this paper from the Tin Type collection. I added a few gold pearls for added dimension.

I inked the edges of the patterned papers in Amaretto Powder Puff Chalk Ink.  The underside of the lid was embellished with the "Life is Full of Surprises" colored vellum quote. I thought it was so appropriate because it says "life is full of surprises; open them slowly". Perfect for this project, no?

I thought it was a special place for our family to keep some of the letters and pictures his Grandma had so carefully saved.
