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 thought I’d share my first project using the new Bohemian Dreams collection, and I couldn’t resist creating in my signature style within my Bible!
