I'm a Believer

When I am trying to think of a title for my layouts I find that song titles can often be perfect. For this layout about daydreaming I immediately thought of one of my favorite Monkee's songs called Daydream Believer.

I found vintage blue flower lace at an antique store that matched my paper perfectly. Lace and ribbon can be the perfect accent to a page and so cheap to buy! If you live near a Hobby Lobby then you will know that they run their ribbon half off about every other week. If not then you can look at thrift and antique stores to find some really great deals.

I love this paper line! It is K & Co "Daydeams" line. I love the unicorns. They were fun to cut out to add a more whimsical feel to the layout.

The decorative mats on my layout were cut using the Storybook cartridge on my Cricut Expression. In my opinion it's the best cartridge Cricut ever created and it's now at Wal Mart!

Another wonderful reason to use lace on your layouts is that you can use pigment ink and change the color of the lace to match your design! That's what I did here with this layout and then added old buttons to add more dimension!

I met an amazing woman at my job at a local scrapbook store! Her name is Katrina and she is now a wonderful friend of mine! She has a great blog too!!!!! She is so talented! Her layout pictured below is featured on Sassafras's blog right now!!!!!!!!! Go see it and comment on her blog congratulating her on her success! She truly deserves it!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for visiting me today, Lindsey

  2. Hi Lindsey,
    Cute layout. I love using lace and ribbons when I scrapbook. I now have some pictures of Matthew in his uniform so need to find some Army paper. I love to just sit down and create a page. I am glad you are still loving your job!

  3. Hi, Lindsey. You brought back memories with your new layout - Daydream Believer was my most favorite song when it came out way back when. And your layout matches the title parfectly! Love that old lace and buttons.Your friend's layout is neat, too.

  4. Hey hey! We're the Monkees! I used to kiss Davy Jones' pic good night- every night when I was 6 years old! ☺

    I'm loving those lacy looking blue flowers!

    I never thought of using ink to change lace color! I'll have to look into that.

    That's great that you met a local blog friend. I'll go check her out! ♥

    I really need to start buying myself some new cartridges for my cricut and having a play with it,
