 Here is a lovely two page paper doll from Doll Reader June/July 1991. The artist is Johanna Shriver-Simpson.  The doll has 5 outfits.  I love the profile body with the turned head, it's a very cute pose.

Scrapbooking for the Paper Doll Collector

cosmo cricket

echo park



creative imaginations

I liked to try something different with this post.  These are some of the scrapbooking papers I have put aside for my paper doll scrapbook.  I like to use stickers featuring buttons, ribbon, lace, and other clothing details.  As for paper, I love vintage feeling paper with fashion designs and fabrics.

Below are some links to other papers I do not own but think would be lovely for a paper doll scrapbook:

As far as brands of scrapbooking paper, Graphics 45 has lots of wonderful designs as well as Kaiser Craft.    Carta Bella and Authentique also has a wide variety of vintage inspired pages.  Hope this posting is helpful to all the paper doll loving paper craters out there.

Here are some lovely vintage tags from Bridal Showers past.  Not all of the cards are labeled with the maker.  None of the cards have dates.  I have a lot of cards from lots I purchased on ebay that I plan to 'eventually' use in my wedding.

Happy New Year

Ok I'm back! Here is a two page magazine paper doll to start with.  Phillip by Nancy Latham from Dolls January 1996.  I am still working on the prizes for the contest winner and will post the winner as soon as I finish.  I've been very lazy/procrastinate on projects.  My Christmas doll will be posted soon too.  (a little late lol).  So hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season.  I've got a lot of catching up to do!
