That's what 1940's girls are made of.
Miss Bernita Carlson lived with my great-grandparents for 3 years during WWII when her mother died. She was like their own.
This layout is Part 2 of my May project for Mystic Paper. Isn't the Prima paper amazing?
Lot's of fun techniques here:
- Stamping with StazOn onto clear acetate circles (Using the Hardware stamp set from Crafty Secrets)
- Elevate the clear circles with pop dots, **cover the dots with the cute Prima chipboard journal stickers
- Tear a "photo shaped" hole, file and grunge it up for a shabby chic look
- Use Grungeboard hinges and rhinestone brads to hold it open
- Scrunch and gather ribbon into place using Beacons 3in1 glue
- Sew, Sew, Sew (seriously, once I got started, I didn't want to stop
- The small flowers are Prima. Two of them (the pink and brown) are glimmer misted.
- The large flowers were HANDMADE from the gorgeous Prima papers. Can you see the glitter glass? I spaced out closeups! Dern it! :)
And guess what, soon, I will have a technique tutorial posted for you with detailed pictures on exactly how I made my roses. Cause I love ya!! Be sure to check out Jenna and Sheri's blogs to see their awesome layouts and cards.
