Webster's Pages

Some wishes are magical - becoming a designer for Webster's Pages has been a dream of mine for a long time and I cannot tell you what an honor it is to become part of their design team! It was just announced today, that was a hard secret to keep, let me tell you!

I created some new pages for the announcement. This is an older photo of Em that I edited and used a digital framed vintage overlay by Carina Gardner. I love the printed vellum by Websters and layered it over the kraft background and hand stitched around the edge.


Didn't these flowers turn out pretty? They are made from 3 circles of old book paper and then snipped into the center and stapled together - then misted and shaped with some mist I mixed.

This photo is a real treasure to me. It is of my grandmother, who was born in 1917 - so amazing the age of it and how it was taken through the window!

I created a quilted effect on the paper by wetting and crumpling then hand stitching.



And a little sign, kind of private joke for Emma. She is famous for wanting to eat late, right before bed time and now she knows to ask, Is the kitchen closed? lol And I do like to be out of the kitchen by 6, not that it always happens that way!


Websters has so many new upcoming releases for CHA this month! We are celebrating and having some peeks during the Joyful Joyride! Stop by and see what is going on!!

I am not going out of town this week after all, so now I am just looking forward to CHA! Thanks for all of your kind comments about my parents! :)

See you soon!
Lucy
