Mamatine's Sewing Machine

Clementine pronounced ( klem-uhn-teen) is my aunt affectionately called Mamatine.  She is an awesome seamstress.   Each time I visit I love to see what new things she’s added to her sewing room.  One year for Christmas I made all my aunt’s shadowboxes and her title was I love you ‘Sew’ much.   I used the photo of her receiving the shadowbox in the layout. 

This week on Platinumscraps we were asked to create a layout using the Pagemap sketch above.  When I saw the dressform I knew exactly what photos I was going to use.  It was fun using some old buttons from my stash.  I wish I would have used some floss in a few of the buttons.  The dress form was from the SOC dress form swap and of course I had to embellish it.  The paper is from SEI I found in a Kreatorville Kit and the titleframe is from Crate paper.  The animal print is from Me & My Big Ideas.  I used Martha Stewart edge punch under the journaling.  TFL and I welcome your comments


  1. This is an absolutely fabulous layout. I left a comment on SOC nbut forgot to include that it was really cool how you trimmed the photo of Mamatine and put it on patterned paper. Nifty!!! TFS

  2. This is beautiful. I had an aunt named Clemtine but we called her Aunt Clem. Love the layout.
