Study Tilda

I finally did it and made my first Magnolia card! I saw this one reading a book and thought that would be perfect for me and the rest is history, as they say. I made this card using Study Tilda from Magnolia and placed her against the Carriage of Love from Make it Crafty.


I added lots of buttons, even clear ones, charm, lace, twine and a tag. I added a few school elements too like the spiral bound paper edge, paper clip and safety pin to help add to the theme.

Did you know? The instant camera is a type of camera that generates a developed film image. Edwin Land's original idea behind instant photography was to create a photographic system that was seamless and easy for anyone to use. Later models went a long way in accomplishing his goal. The photographer simply pointed the camera at the subject and took the photo and the film developed without intervention from the photographer.
