Oh what FUN! Will you be doing heritage pages??? If so, there's heritage/vintage paper you can buy,,,,,you can also "distress" the edges of the paper easily with distress ink or chalk inks,,,,,just run the edge of the paper along the raised ink pad, curl or distress the edges a bit more with scissors or an emery board,,,,,
with heritage pages, I also like to use lots of lace, pearls, stick pins (easily made with pins and beads from the jewelry department), prima roses, etc! Another fav thing to do is to paint a chipboard frame with crackle paint and ink the crackles so it looks really old! Tim Holtz also makes some fabulous metal embellishments that look AMAZING on heritage and vintage Lo's
Oh boy are you gonna have fun!
