Stephanie says, "When I was young, a favorite activity was paging through my Gran's collection of Ideals Magazines ... especially the holiday editions. I found this vintage Ideals Magazine Photo in my collection, so I scanned it and sized it down to 5"x7" to cover my card front. I thought the Impression Obsession sentiment was the perfect finishing touch ... do you remember making popcorn & paper ring garlands for your holiday tree?"
Lauren says, "Unfortunately neither of my grandmothers collected "Ideals" magazine, but I've made up for lost time since finding my first copy at a book sale about 15 years ago! For this card I've used two different blue-toned snowscape illustrations from two different issues of "Ideals" and framed them up with loads of textural blue, white and sparkly flowers. My layout is inspired by this week's Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge."
