Vintage Easter Assemblage for Class


This week my girlies wanted to create a 3d type Easter project and I’m only happy to oblige : ) How could I possible say no to my Peeps???

IMG_2885I assembled this 3d project on a base of a super sturdy particle board plaque with a great hanger on the back : ) I added a vintage sheet music page and layered on all the goodies : ) 

IMG_2894There’s a paper mache box in the corner ( donated by Sassy Linda), I gave it a good paint job and ink..more sheet music, a beautiful scrolly frame with tag, buttons, nest, and crepe fringe.

IMG_2895I added a shredded craft paper nest to the tiny tart tin and 3 sweet little speckled eggs in the nest. A sewn crepe rosette is topped off with a pretty vintage image to carry the soft pink up out of the box.  Fun banner of tags in the top corner : )

IMG_2892I used a Tim Holtz clip to add the vintage postcard image to the inked doily. On top is a fun bingo card, bunny in the best shabby color, tickets, burlap bow, hand crocheted flower and another Tim Holtz pin.

I think we are going to have lot’s of fun creating these shabby chic Easter wall hangings : ) If we don’t glue ourselves to the table that is lol : )

Rainy Day Paper Projects


I‘m playing paper today to chase the clouds away. Hoping for Spring to get here soon I’ve created two brighter and cheerier cards.

I selected a nice stripe from my Graphic 45 scrap and salvage box and layered on a lovely vintage image from Graphics Fairy. Marie Antoinette is so  beautiful : ) I gave this card a nice craft paper border to anchor the light colors.

I punched and gathered a border and added individually cut out tiny flowers from the Graphic 45 scrap box. To the center of each flower I added a dab of Liquid Pearls. I also inked it well using Distress Inks.

Notice the stitch lines???? Yay I found the cord to my sewing machine : )

I really love this darling image from Graphics Fairy of the bunny and chicks. Don’t ya just want to climb right into that picture and hear them little chicks peeping and smell the blooms from the tree in the background. The paper I choose for this card is from Paper Loft. The small button card is from Crate.

This lovely little bloom is separate flowers cut from the same sheet of scrap Graphic 45 paper…this time I did dry brush it just a bit to bring the intensity of the color down. I layered and curled several flowers and gave it a pearly accent center.

Just my luck…I found a small scrap of paper that looks just like burlap! It looks like it has a lot of texture. I used it to make a sweet little banner and topped it off with a string of pearls. A creamy ribbon and bow are the final accents.

Okay…now I have my Spring projects started….all I need is for it to be 85 and sunny : )

I really wanted to find the cord to the sewing machine.


I started my day poking around in the stock boxes from the shop in hopes of finding the cord to my sewing machine. Apparently this is to be a lost cause. I did however find a box of old artificial flowers. I decided to try some techniques for altering them. I didn’t care for them too much anymore….so if they got ruined in the pursuit of art all I was loosing was a little time.  I am THRILLED with how it turned out : )

Thank you Stella for displaying my flower with shabby chic style : ) I can’t even begin to tell you how many steps it took to get to this point lol.

I love it so much that I sewed on a pin back so I can wear it to dress up a sweater or tank top…or even a purse????

↓↓Before and After↓↓

No I am not playing a trick on you…this was the same flower!!! Not to say that yellow roses aren’t nice and all. LOL I like the after a whole lot better : ) And are you noticing that there are two flowers??? You guessed it…I will be giving this one a makeover too!

So I also finished a couple of cards to share with you.

Awwww. I love this vintage image from Graphics Fairy. She is too sweet.

Makes me wish I had a little girl. Or a bunny. Yeah I”ll take the bunny instead.

New favorite flower for a card. I found this ribbon while looking for that darn cord. Very easy and stitched up super quick.

I think I was channeling my inner Tim Holtz with all the ink on this card.

This was a purchased flower that I pulled apart and stamped, then added gold netting and a beautiful brad center. There’s a bit of twine looped in the back also for extra detail.

There’s like 5 different Distress Ink colors there haha. Once I got started it was hard to stop. I tucked this tag made with papers from My Minds Eye behind a glittery frame and layered it on a strip of typography from Jenni Bowlin Mercantile.

But….I did not find the cord to my sewing machine. Dang. Guess I’ll look again tomorrow. I might even find some more treasures to create with for my next post.
