Vintage Gluebook Pages

April — “Springtime”

I recently made a couple of vintage gluebook pages for a monthly swap with a Yahoo group. These pages are 4 by 6 inches, and they are meant to be bound along the left side (which is why that side of the page is free of embellishments, more or less). The theme for April was springtime, so I used this adorable image from FrenchKissed and pretended I was making a vintage scrapbook page. I added a few more ephemera images and an appropriate quote. The background is actually an old ledger page that I’ve had in my stash forever. Finally, I found a use for this paper — isn’t the handwriting beautiful?

May — Shades of Blue

The page I made for May also uses a FrenchKissed image, this one in beautiful blue tones. I made a small envelope out of vellum and put a paper flower in it to appear as if the flower was “pressed” for preservation. The embossed violet on the envelope is from a small area of an older stamp by Stampa Rosa (had to have this stamp and am just now using it for the first time). The fake (and hence, flat) button at the top is an image from Deviant Scrap that has glossy accents and blue glitter spread in the center. It’s fun to imagine what a scrapbook from yesteryear would be like!

  1. Jan, I shared this on my Facebook page. LUV all the multiple elements. Honored that you like my Sergy collage — but he’s only 4 postcards collaged together. You really have a knack for mixing so many layers and pieces. The Blue Girl is my fav:)
