Vintage birthday record book

Hi there,

Today I have put up a tutorial on my you tube channel for a gorgeous vintage birthday record book.  You can make it as a simple little mini album if you wish though ,it is really easy to make and takes a minimum of time to create but looks stunning. .  Great for a christmas or birthday gift.
I've made mine just for lucky am I!!!!??  Makes a change to do things for myself! now I can record the dates and names on the inside pages for each month and use the tags to write down any gifts I buy through the year so I don't duplicate presents...when the tags are full I can just make some new ones.


So here are some photos and a list of materials I used


These stamps have such fine detail...

C1 -101 Imagine child
C1 -131  Four pretty girls
C1 -154 Sweet harp angel
C1 -173 Elegant swirls
C1 -186 Bicycle embrace
C1 -214 1893 script
C1 -238 Parisian beauties
C1 -285 Hats and bonnets
C1 -325 Vintage vehicle
C1 -324 Bright voile ladies
C1 -338 young girl dreaming
C1 -322 The dressmaker
Background papers book 7
people and places miniture book issue 4...used on cover

  1. ooh this is awesome! You are so talented! Take care and I hope Hannah is ok? xx

  2. Details of the dig are on Facebook, Amesbury Museum. They were looking for volunteers for this coming week, might still have some places. It's about 1.5miles from Stonehenge so not too far from you. The next dig will be in April so it's worth checking out the museum page from time to time. There's also a full page article in The Times today about the site. David Jacques, the lead archaeologist, is my cousin. Hope that helps and many thanks for your visit. Hugs. Pam#68
