Just My Type!

I don’t usually hear voices but sometimes I see a stamp and it calls out to me. In this case, it actually wrote me a typed message that read - Take me home, you need me EllenBee. And so I did. And it now happily resides in a cigar box labeled VLVS.

To celebrate the arrival of this wonderful Vintage Hammond Typewriter Ad Stamp I decided to make a Vintage/Retro Secretary Album.

Vintage Hammond Typewriter Ad Stamp
High Gloss Embossing Powder
Miracle Tape
Graphic 45 Kraft Envelope Album
Graphic 45 Communique Paper
Washi Tape
Kraft and Black Paper

I started this easy project by lining each page with Kraft paper and then adding a slightly smaller piece of patterned paper over that. Then I stamped out the image on a small piece of Kraft paper and used the VLVS gloss powder to emboss. I next attached a strip of Washi tape on the bottom of the page and made a pocket using the Black paper and Miracle Tape. To that I added the stamped/embossed typewriter image. Pictures never do it justice but in person it is shiny – just like a new typewriter.
