My Grandmother . . .

Another one of my favorite styles is vintage. This scrapbook page is focusing on my Grandma Nellie (R), and her sister, Stella (L). In 1917, Grandma was 22 years old. Married at 16, she already had two children.

Back in the day, everything was literally made by hand. So I thought it quite appropriate to add Sparkle N Sprinkle's Sewing Machine, Needle & Thread, and Scissors to tie in the vintage theme on this page. Each of these items was embossed with Gold ep, fussy cut, and hot glued over the cheesecloth. For detailed instructions to make this scapbook page, click HERE.
