Scrapbooking Memories

Wanted to share a project with you, its a scrapbook dedicated to all things vintage girly! What could be more FAB! I have a boy and girl but I cannot lie I just love pink, throw in some vintage and you have me. I do love creating vintage boy trinkets especially since I know what a rarity they are. This post though is all about pink.

I started with a blank chipboard front and bank, painted, distressed and assembled. I then went to work on the interior pages by adding paper bag pages. The pages can hardly be seen once I added my cardstock. I love pulling out the sewing machine for these books, I sew first on my cardstock then attach that page to the paperbag page. I probably couldn't sew through the paper bag and my sewing machine has been good to me so I won't test it. She gets a little irritated when I experiment.

Each page has its own layout and includes lots of movable goodies like vintage photos and greetings. I also add vintage ribbon and lace. The great thing is each paper bag page acts as a big ole pocket for more storage of extra photos that didn't make it on the page or other memorabilia you want to keep from that special day.

I just finished a book like this with a vintage school theme which was a wonderful project to work on. It was for a teacher who has about 30+ years in! She loved vintage school photos and wanted a place to put her memories and years of memorabilia into.
