Going back in time to a Victorian Pier

Shimelle's 10th prompt was all about stamping........now I do a lot of stamping......but nearly all of it is for cards or on canvases.......very rarely for scrapbook pages.......and I admit to having a few stamps that have never been used......so out came one little set for their first inking.......to go on a holiday scrapbook page.
Some little shell stamps.......stamped onto the same K & Co papers and card that had been used on this page......they seemed to match well with the seaside theme......sadly it wasn't really a 'seasidey' day when we visited the old Victorian pier at Clevedon........an interesting structure......I'm sure it would have been lovely on a warm, sunny day......but despite it being July.......we were freezing.....and didn't stay too long!!!!!
But we couldn't resist a quick photo in something so typically British seaside!!!!

That photo is hilarious! And what a great use of your stamps. I'm going to pull out my sports stamps and make some elements/background paper for my son's sports album.

Isn't it nice to finally be using supplies you thought would never see the light of day? Great layout!

Really interesting photos - never been there, and I like piers, so glad to see it. :) Your shell stamp is perfect. Perhaps you'll find more uses for it now it's been 'baptised'!

Happy crafting

I love that photo and great use of the shell stamps. I use letter stamps for titles quite a lot, but rarely anything else. Thanks for the inspiration.

Hi Jacky...
What rubbish weather we had in July!
Lovin' the seashells and the journalling!

We visited this pier last Summer - and you've got me thinking about my aunt and uncle and their caravan again. I love your pictures - they are a perfect evocation of a British Summer day!

I imagine on a warm, sunny day the pier would be a pleasant placed to visit. Not so much on a cold dreary day--brrr! I like how you included the receipts in your layout. Nice touch.

Great photo! Love the shell stamps - a nice touch. It's such a pity about the British weather isn't it?!

This is one of my favorite layouts so far from the class. Did you stamp the title on the photo as well? I don't often think to use stamps on my layouts either.
