Loving Waves 12x12 Scrapbook Layout using Pretty Little Studio Shine Bright Collection - Lydia Cost

I’m up on the Pretty Little Studio blog this morning, featuring this 12×12 Layout all about my current favorite hairstyle!

This one includes a couple hours worth of hand-punching, stitching, and cutting, and the result was so worth it!  I’m in love with the way the hand-stitching looks against those beautiful watercolor pieces in the Shine Bright collection.

When I began this layout, I don’t think I was quite prepared for how many hours of stitching would go into this pretty frame, but the labor of love was worth the effort!

I titled my layout with a die-cut word and some Thickers.  I really loved the way this layout has so much dimension and character!  It’s getting put up on my wall for sure!

I’m so excited to be bringing you guys my first ever Citrus Twist Kits project!  I fell so in love with this month’s kit called Life Chapters, and I could not wait to share it with you!

This page was inspired by this screenshot of my Audible account.  I reached Master level last year with 103 books read over the year.  Audible had re-posted on their Instagram account a message a gal had written about adding MA to her post-nominal initials, and I thought that was so funny and clever, so I had to record the achievement myself in true, papercrafting fashion… Lydia Cost MAud.
