It's got to be Vintage with Heather and Natalie

I love vintage and Heather is so good that it. 
She has a huge following on her blog and it is not hard to see why. 

Here she has made a mini book or booklet. 
I love the way she layers everything and her projects always have lots of little bits and pieces for you to look at.

Above you can see all the detail Heather has layered on the front of this booklet. 
So much to see, it's like a "where's wally". The closer you look the more you find and this is the cover, 
What awaits us inside?

Just look at this, it is amazing, folded paper, cut out images, inked chipboard, buttons, lots of fussy cutting and even a tag. So much attention to detail, but you expect that from Heather this is what she excels at and why I admire her work so much.

This photo show the detail even better. Just look at all those bits and pieces. 
Heather inked the chipboard shapes with  Tim Holtz distress ink - Rusty Hinge then dabbed it with a versa colour ink pad - Celadon. The cogs are layered and secured with brads. The heart is covered with paper first, cogs are then added to create dimension and interest. Heather has excelled herself with this project and I am delighted to be sharing this with you.

Also today we have this layout from Natalie.

For a recent challenge over at Once Upon A Sketch, the Design Team had to create a page about someone who they miss.

Natalie created a tribute to her late Uncle Geoff who passed away in 2009.
Uncle Geoff transported Yachts for a living and was a man of the sea ... the simplicity and design of this page are perfect for his tribute.

All of the ID chipboard elements have been inked in black and then painted with paint to get a slightly rough, masculine feel to them. The addition of the yacht charm to the tinies clock sets it off really well.
