Flower Challenge at RRR

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Time to start another fun challenge at Reasonable Ribbon. This time it’s a Flower theme which was a no brainer for me…because I put flowers on like everything! I created A Moment in Time Card….but I think it works better as a shabby chic display. Can’t you just see this on a shelf tucked in with some milk glass vases and old books?

A Moment in Time Card 1

Did I mention flowers?  Yes I do loose all control when I add the flowers because clearly more is better!!!

A Moment in Time Card 2

These gorgeous blooms are all Mulberry Flowers from RRR-Trellis Roses, Sweetheart Blossoms, English Roses, and Spiral Stamens.

I’ve done a fair amount of layering here with a lovely bow of Chevron Striped Twill in Champagne,  topped with an actual vintage button, and heat embossed A Moment in Time Chippie from Gypsy Soul.

I really added a lot of texture to this card by distressing the edges and adding texture paste with a flourishy stencil. All the layers have spacers between so this is very dimensional. For balance I added another small arrangement of flowers and twine.

My focal image starts with a Country Chic Frames digi collage from my very own shop. I added some chicken wire background papers and a lovely dragonfly diecut.  More chippies for this corner too…Tulip Scroll Corner and Number Plate.

Okay now it’s your turn to create something fabulous with flowers and link up with us to play along in the Flowers with Ribbon or Trim Challenge.

Okay that’s all for me. Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G

Shop Update and Display Projects

Standard

Yay we got some good news back from the realtor that our proposal was accepted for the new location for the shop . I can’t wait to get settled in and get back to work. I thought it would be nice to create some new display items for our guests to enjoy for our grand reopening.

I just love little containers to hold small treasures. They work great to keep the stock organized too! This project is also a nice way to upcycle those great wooden crates that clementines are sold in. We have a ton of them just waiting to be put to use.

Right now it’s holding a nice supply of envelopes waiting to be worked into a project. I inked the edges of a lovely paper then added a glitter edge banner. A ruffled crepe is a nice girly finishing detail.

I created this sweet little flower for the front of the crate…..but it just didn’t seem to match so I will find a different project for it. I started with a lovely sheet music vintage image from Graphics Fairy that I cut into strips and scalloped. I worked it into the layers of a velvety flower and ruffled it to give the flower lot’s of dimension. A few nice bit’s of lace to soften the edges.

I’ll be happily working at getting the shop open so I can enjoy seeing all my Paper Peeps again. Hopefully by the end of next month. I have some great  ideas for the shop to make it  new and improved!  Until then….I am enjoying hibernating and playing paper at home.
