"Maggie" - a Vintage Layout

Hello and happy Monday! Lynne here with a heritage page of my great grandmother. My aunt recently gifted me with several family photos and I'm so looking forward to including them in my heritage scrapbooks.

I used the lovely Frolic paper collection by Blue Fern Studio some Prima flowers and of course some wonderful pieces from Gina's store. The vintage lady was covered with coordinating paper then run through an embossing folder. I inked the edges and the raised pattern for added contrast. I love the way the chipboard holds the embossed designs, whereas they can flatten over time when just embossed onto paper.

The heart border was embossed with the same design then painted with acrylic pint before I inked it lightly. The adhesive pearls were added between the hearts for a little extra interest and dimension.

I absolutely love the intricate cardstock doilies and use them every chance I get-they add the look of vintage doilies without the bulk of the crocheted pieces.

A few fussy-cut butterflies, a little stenciling with texture paste here and there and some delicate die-cut foliage, and my layout was complete! Thanks so much for visiting and have yourself a fabulous week!
