Stenciled Embellishments and a trick for Vintage Photos

Today I have a scrapbook page I did as a part of a Heritage Album.  Note the use of a stencil and pen for decorative embellishments.  Without them, the page had looked rather plain.  I used my Silhouette to cut the matted title, and corner punches to create the decorative corners on the mat for the focal photo.

The other thing I want to point out is the way the little pictures are framed at the top.  As always with vintage photos, I don't like to cut them or put adhesive on them.  These 3 pictures, however, really needed to be cropped!  So -- I created the frames and then mounted the pictures from the back with photo corners, adjusting their alignment to achieve the cropping effect that I wanted.
