The little girl on the picture is my mother; she's dressed with the traditional dress and hat from our region Alsace in France and the man on the right is my grandfather... It is one of my favorite picture of them...



  • Paper and Cardstock
  • Stamps
    • Prima clear stamps, Butterfly     ( PRI-CSM-536350   $5.99)
    • French stamp for the title
  • Ink
  • Embellishments

  • I choose this paper for its traditional style, that reminded the traditional decor of the picture.

  • After adhering the picture I framed it with red acrylic paint and a simple brush.

  • I stamped the bird nest, flowers and frame with black ink on a book page, decorated with dots of red paint and cut them to stick on the pictures' corners.

  • The title is stamped directly on the background paper.

  • I'll write the journaling on the opposite page of the album, when it is ready.

Have a lovely day,
