300 year old letters used for Hybrid Scrapbooking Papers

This letter was written in 1698!

This letter was written in 1698!

I thought I would share with you some letters I have been scanning in recently.  I was scanning them in for use in my next Collection of Hybrid Scrapbooking 8×8 Background Papers which will be available on the ICanCraftNow.com site very soon.  I have finished the collection, I just need to upload to the site.

So I have made a short video (about 3 minutes) just showing you the “actual” letters which were written from the 1690s to about 1804, 17th Century to the 19th Century!  In my hot little hands no less! Although I did try to handle them as little as possible and with care. (Don’t forget that our touch, ie the oils in our skin, are acidic and transfer to the things we hold.) 

They are my husband’s at the moment, but I believe they may well be “going under the hammer” soon.  (that means about to go into auction… in case you were worried there for a mo! LOL)

Below is the preview of the papers in the “Colourful Beauty” Collection of Hybrid Scrapbooking papers by SundayL

UPDATE: the Colourful Beauty Collection has now been uploaded.

  • This is a beautiful set of papers, I will keep an eye out for them. The letters are priceless too, so old.

  • Thank You Eileen, the collection is much more “me”, I love lots of layering. And the flowers in the papers are from original photos of my own garden, well previous garden. Definitely original! Thank you for looking, and if you are a subscriber to the newsletter You’ll know that there will be one or two freebie “Add-on” papers for you this month.
