Handmade Paper Journal Cover with Vintage Photo Of Couple and Vintage Patriotic Stamps

I started thinking about the up coming Labor Day holiday and our Soldiers. We are so lucky to live in the US and I am very proud of all of the military. So to honor the soldiers and their families who have sacrificed, I created this journal with a vintage photo of a couple, 2 vintage stamps supporting the military and the steel industry and vintage navy blue beads from West Germany.

The vintage photo of a couple is glued in the upper right hand corner and the words Proud To Be American individual hand stamped letters.

An american flag decal is placed over the photo to add mystery and drama.

The theme of the journal is Patriotism and American.

I'm pleased with the white stitching along the spine and the beads--4 navy blue vintage West Germany interlocking, five letter beads spelling P-E-A-C-E.

Do you know some one in the military? Share your stories.

Nature Loving Scrapbooking paper

Hand Made Paper Scrapbooking Collection 8--3 Woodland Green and 3 Rustic Ochre Papers are muted colors that will fit into the nature lovers memory books.
Irregularities are a feature of the hand papermaking process because no two pieces of paper catch the fibers in the same manner.

You will receive 3 each 5" x 7"--woodland green with darker green specks, and rustic yellow ochre with ground leaf matter.

Each paper has a deckle edge.

A deckle edge is created when the pulp is caught in the mould and deckle frame set.
