Retro Hip Magazine | Faith and Scrap Projects

I’ve been so blessed by the opportunity to design for Retro Hip Magazine, and I’m just in awe of the amazing things that my friend Andrea at Retro Hip Mama is doing inside those amazing pages! If you haven’t gotten yourself an issue yet, you are desperately missing out!

This pretty layered piece is inside the Faith section, and I can’t wait for you to see it!

And this layout is for the On Trend section of the magazine, and it was such a blast! You don’t want to miss the other ladies’ projects alongside mine!

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!
