Yesterday i received some scrap stuff i ordered online, mostly papers, as usual (i can't place a scrap order or visit a scrap store without buying patterned paper, which is quite funny knowing that i end up using cardstock 80% of the time!!)
So in my parcel was plenty of the "Vintage Blue" collection by We R Memory Keepers. Awesome! patterns, textures, colors... i love everything! And i like the bright idea of those "4 squares" papers, 12x12 sheets that you cut to obtain actually four 6x6 papers, all different - perfect for creating mini albums. Can't wait to scrap them!! They're definitely cute & vintage-styled, i was thinking about using pictures of my parents in their young days with them, i'm sure it would definitely suit the style.
I had also ordered some of the papers from Basic Grey's Kiyoshi collection: pastel sweet, delicate and modern at the same time, would go perfectly with some baby pix!
In next post i'll try to show you a mini-album i made using the coptic book binding technic... a first try for me, but it worked great!
