I love Victorian scrapbooks and old-fashioned die cuts.
I grew up in a family of antique dealers, and occasionally my dad would let me turn the brittle pages of a scrapbook kept by someone a hundred years ago.
I'm in my early thirties now, but I still have a deep love for Victorian die cuts and other vintage ephemera. Last weekend I was browsing a rummage sale at a local retirement home and hit the jackpot: a box of uncut Victorian scrapbook pictures from the 1920s.
I don't know if I'll eventually sell the die-cuts on eBay or use them in my own collages and scrapbooks. It feels like sacrilege to cut up and glue down something so old, even though that is its intended purpose.
