Today I am showcasing an Emporium layout that I completed a while ago but never blogged about it. I would have liked to actually use the oldest paper I had on hand but sadly that paper is back in WA and I am in IL still. I had planned to already be home by now but that doesn't look like it is going to happen until August. Any, rate, here are the layouts :)

Click any picture to zoon in:

This first layout is from the Magic How-To Book. I added some pewter designer brads too that I absolutely love as well as some colonial white ricrac ribbon (On Sale for $5).

This next layout I used up some of my epoxy brads and tiny tabs that I had. This layout was from a WOTG guide.

 Last, this layout was completed with the scraps I had left and some white grosgrain ribbon.

I hope you enjoyed my layouts using one of our old papers. Now hop on over to Judy Faye Garner's Blog for more ideas of using up your stash.


  1. This is some of my favorite paper and what a fun time,

  2. Totally cool layouts, Rachel. I love that paper, too!

  3. I like your use of ribbon throughout the layouts.
