Scrapbooking Fun!

Hello friends! Today I wanted to share a scrapbook layout that I created this week.



I could not wait for this line of paper to come in at the scrapbook store where I work. It's called Material Girl and it's by Cosmo Cricket.

A gorgeous vintage sewing/crafting themed line! I am having so much fun with it!


I knew when I saw this paper that I had to create a layout about my Mom and I, using our profile picture.


This line was so fun and easy to play with! I added hand stitched accents to the page and even a real needle!


I was inspired by Elizabeth of Creative Breathing to use the manufacturer's strip in my layout. I loved how perfect it matched my layout.


If you get the chance, I would highly recommend this cute line of paper!!

Hope you've had a lovely weekend, Lindsey
