Scrapbooking Trend – Matryoshka Dolls (& a Giveaway from Buzz & Bloom!)

** This Giveaway is Now Closed **

These colourful Russian nesting dolls, or Matryoshka dolls, are appearing all over fashion, home decor and in the crafting world.  I remember walking down a busy street in Ottawa with my mother when I was a small child, and seeing them in a shop window.  Ever since then, I’ve always wanted a set! Now they are becoming quite a popular theme!  Here are a few more spottings of this trend.

Read below for details on a giveaway from Buzz and Bloom!

A matryoshka patterned lampshade by Lillyberlin is available in her DaWanda shop.  A photo is shown at right.

Hero Arts has a stamp set with this theme as well.  See photo at left.

Inky Livie sells a set of baby shower cards with a matryoshka mother on the front.

Here is a digital download available through Revidevi’s Etsy shop for 3 sheets of matryoshka printable images.

You can get a handcarved matryoshka stamp from Craft Pudding here.  One photo is shown at right.  Or, another style from Baby Jewels.

Simona Montanari shows a layout, at left, she made which is embellished with a matryoshka felt doll that was an old Christmas ornament.

Buzz and Bloom has matryoshka laser cut / engraved chipboard designed by Lusi Austin available.  One photo is shown at right.  A layout example using these can be seen below left by Michelle Macdonald

    What a clever idea! I’ve never seen anything matroyska themed before aside from fabric. LOVE IT! If, perchance, I win, I’d use them on a layout from my dd’s school’s Ethnic Pride day. She did her presentation and displays on Russia, including several matroyska dolls. If not, I’m going to have to find them somewhere myself!
