Gossamer Blue Blog Hop


Hello!  You should have arrived here from the amazing (and awesomely named) Jill Cornell's blog!  If there is any confusion along the way, just head back to the Gossamer Blue blog for the full hop list.

I'm sharing some information about my favorite layout from the October kits, Typewriter Love.  I was lucky enough to have a precious elderly couple answer my ad for a cursive font typewriter, and I think I struck gold with my Hermes 3000: excellent condition, works beautifully and got it for the price I wanted!

I backed the photo with a transparency, then used ephemera from My Mind's Eye Jubilee collection.  The die cut card was white, but I needed it to pop against the polka dot paper so I heat embossed it with gold powder.  I'm guilty of creating banners on at least one layout each month, and the ephemera was calling my name, so I went for it once again!  I'm typically not a red person, but nothing beats the black, red and white color combo with shiny gold accents.  Even after putting a ton of Jubilee ephemera on this page, I still had a bunch to use on another layout!

Keep hopping along to my favorite Aussie, Joy Taylor!
