The page above, entitled "Graduation," features a vintage cameo from a Twin Cities seller named Stephanie Gard Buss (aka "Olla Podrida"). I always make sure to visit her stall at the bazaar, because I like buying her vintage items. I could buy made-in-China, vintage-looking cameos at the scrapbook store. But why do that when I can buy genuine vintage, pre-loved trinkets from Stephanie? There's nothing like the real thing!
This scrapbook layout has photos of my graduation from the University of Minnesota. Since I double-majored in Russian and English, I thought it fitting to use papers with Russian text on my layout.
To hold notes and smaller photos, I used a twine-wrapped pocket.
This layout appeared in the May, 2013, issue of Scrap n' Art e-zine. I have a Thanksgiving card in their current (November, 2013) issue--if you're a Scrap n' Art subscriber, please be sure to check it out.
Here's hoping that I'll be able to attend the Spring Twin Cities Bead Bazaar, when the time comes. Until then, I still have lots of fun little trinkets from past bazaars to incorporate into my work, so I'm sure you'll be seeing more of them on my blog. Thanks for your visit today!
