Hi,

Does anyone have some paper and embellies they can suggest for a trip to Medieval Times? Thanks!

DCWV had a stack Once Upon a Time that's very medieval themed....

I haven't scrapped ours yet but I did save a title someone had on a page -Joust for fun.
I did a search for clip art to use for paper piecings or to color in. I can pm them to you if you like. They are knights, crowns stc.

Jolee's has a Merlin wizard cape and book of magic embellies. Somewhere in my gallery I have a layout which features the cape. My family and I went to Magiquest in SC.

OK, I'll be no help at all but when I scrapbooked my visit to Medieval Times, I used some old Daisy D's floral paper - aged vintage and red as a background.

I found a laser cut knight in armour that you pieced together. Also used a Jolee crown and some decoupage medieval cutouts - all found on a well-known auction site. The decoupage cutouts were like paper dolls - they were fabulous.

Maybe you can find some nice images and print them at home? I did not have a printer at the time and had not discovered SB.com when I made the pages.

I love that look and had some of those papers but I did these two layouts using bo bunny papers that they still have here in the Superstore.

I saw a mermaid 2-page layout go for $1500 on ebay. It was stunning and all but that's alot of Cricut cartridges.

It was stunning. I think there are people out there collecting stuff like that from certain artists as the art of the of this era. The lady made each scale for the mermaid tails. It was so detailed and took her weeks to make. I just can't imagine any photos worthy enough for the work.

I think the artist/scrapper was something bear or bear something. Also craftingalong sells her two 12x12 pages for over $50 usually. Last one went for $161.08. Go figure.

I thought it was some sort of scam. Really who would pay so much for scrapbooking pages? But obviously some is willing. The buyers and sellers were "normal" people. Not shells for money laundering or some other false thing.

I got some gorgeous laser cuts from the Stamping Station, and Me and My Big Ideas has embellishments from the Coastal Culture Icons. I do a medieval festival every year in my clasroom and I agree with the previous paper suggestions. Had to giggle at Gelidy Gelato's use of her paper. I have that paper and couldn't figure out how to do a layout on it. Now I can!

I can't find it online anymore but I saved an image to my harddrive. I really want to make something like one day when I have a bunch of time to kill to just see if I can do it.

PM me with your email addresses and I'll email the JPG to you.

She had another two pager with rabbits for an Easter theme go for $1200. Did you read her feed backs? Pretty darn impressive.

What about using some velvet ribbon, antique lace and some pearls for embellishing. Also some flowers with Tim Holts inks to age them.

I also love the Once Upon A Time Papers but I also have som eof the Karen Foster papers - there is a dragon and knight and princess stuff that goes with it too.

What size do you scrap. I have this really cool Medeiveal Knight and Lady stamp that I have and some cardstock with the same image printed.

When the economy is good craftingalong will sell her pages for $300 or more. The meggiebearsscraps lady started hers with her business with her daughter. Both of those sellers said it took at least 2 years to get a decent following of people before they began making any money. Check out craftyemg too. Hers go for quite a bit too.

Craftyemg is very detailed too. Added her to my faves on ebay so I can just see what she makes. I won't even try any of their stuff but it's fun to watch and see how much someone would bid on their things. Go, girls!
