Great-Grandmother Bjorg

My Icelandic Great-Grandmother Bjorg

For this layout I used a Riddersholm Design paper for the background.

Riddersholm Design - Barn Market - Worn

These are the dies and punch I used:

Prima - Parisian Lace
Lifestyle Crafts - Nesting Doily Rectangles
Martha Stewart - French Scroll

These are the chipboard pieces I used:

Dusty Attic - Corner Flourish #3
Dusty Attic - Fancy Trim #1

I heat-embossed both chipboard pieces with Ranger Antiquities Embossing Powder in the California Stucco colour and inked around the edges with Fawn Colorbox Chalk Ink.  I glued some Fuzzy Navel Prills to the corner flourish using Artquest's Perfect Paper Adhesive (PPA) Matte.  I poured some of the PPA into another bottle with a finer tip so I could apply it more precisely.

The roses are by Prima (Solid Rose, Blush Gold and Crown Gold).

Thank you so much for taking a look today!


  1. Oh Tracy, this is superb!! The mauve & peach tones look absolutely gorgeous! What a beautiful woman Bjorg was and always wearing the most beautiful clothing! Incorporating lace into this stunning design is just perfect.

  2. Tracy, this is beautiful! I love the color combination that you used.

  3. This layout is absolutely gorgeous! I love it!! Thanks, Denise

  4. Tracy Where do you purchase the vintage lace?? And there are 4 white spindle looking items on the Climbing layout of your son were they lace also? Thanks again, love your work and inspiration. Denise

    1. Hi Denise. I've purchase my lace from a number of different places over the years and some of them are closed now. I have bought quite a bit from an Etsy store called mingmingworld but they are temporarily closed for a few months. That's where I got the lace that looks like spindles and the pink lace from this layout. I'm not sure but I think I may have got the wide piece of lace in this layout from an Etsy shop called TresorsdeLuxe. The Etsy shops called LaceBeauty and NaturalBalcony also have some beautiful lace. I hope that helps.
