CT layouts

I love vintage. Heritage. Traditional. I am not a huge fan of soft colors, but they can sometimes make my heart beat fast when combined with the perfect contrasting colors or elements. That is what happened when I saw Laurie by guest designer PattyB Scraps. I was immediately drawn to the ephemera, the beautiful taupe crocheted doily, and the burlap and ribbon flower. Still, I wasn’t sure. It was very blue. And then I saw it. Not in the preview, but on one of the layouts below the preview. There was an old granny looking quilt square.

I’m not a quilter. My grandmother quilted.  Mama quilted.  I just never picked it up. What made my heart beat fast was the memory. I remember my grandmother always had her scrap pile. Actually, she had two. One pile was for large scraps. These she saved until she had enough to make something. But she also had her tiny scraps pile. She would sew, and cut, and toss the scraps to that little pile. She used tiny scraps as her tester pieces. She would grab a handful of tiny scraps when her bobbin acted up and she would sew back and forth, adjusting the tension dial until she got it just right. Then she would bring back the good fabric and sew away.

That one page made me fall in love with this kit.  I mean really, how much closer could I get to vintage, heritage, traditional?  I also love this page with the cardboard frame and dark stroke on the word art.  Beautiful!  Just beautiful.

pbs_Laurie_previewIf you love vintage, then be sure to visit PattyB Scraps  Her store is filled with heritage style kits.  Her gallery is filled with wonderful pages in a variety of styles.  Oh, and don’t let the initial color stop you.  After all, it’s not so much about the color as it is about the memory.

I whipped up a page border for you.  It’s filled with those messy stitches grandma used to make.

Spring Photo Ops, plus a freebie!

by Jenn 15 April 2013

Do you ever wake up early on a Saturday morning, look out the window and see the sun yellow and bright against a clear blue sky and say to yourself ’what a perfect day to spend outside in my yard?’ As spring meanders in between occasional April showers, I find myself in this position now and then. I’m not usually an early riser […]
