Paper Layers


I love perusing vintage markets for fun finds and great decor ideas. I love to see ordinary items put to a new and delightful use around the home. Book paper scraps really get to the heart of scrapbooking - making something beautiful from an otherwise ordinary object. But, being a lover of books, I find it hard to tear out these little treasures. Enter: Glitz Designs Paper Layers. You get all of the goodness of these vintage-style pages without the heartache of tearing them from their covers.

My oldest daughter is an avid reader and loves even the smell of old books. With the thought of the rugged edge of an old book as an inspiration, I cut a Glitz Paper Layer into strips, stacked them and ruffled the edges. I added a little shabby chic touch by tucking some Glitz Trims between the layers.

I started reading the use of book pages for the challenge and thought, "Noel can't do that. I don't think she could tear a page out of a book, she loves them way too much to tear one up." Then I read on and realize you aren't tearing any books up. So glad that some things never change.

Love you, sweet friend.

Praying all day today and this week for you and yours.
