My Vintage Treasures - Keepsake Box

Hi Everyone,

  I am excited to share with you this Vintage box that I altered for the Lindys Stamp Gang January Color Challenge.  Watch Video HERE.


This is the Color Challenge for this month! 


I used Lindys Starbusts Sprays all over this box.  The things you can do with these sprays are endless.  I used them in my laces, flowers, frame, embellishments and paper ;) 


I love the Vintage effect the sprays gives the laces and the Prima flowers. 




The paper collection I used is by Pion Designs "Studio of Memories" 
one of my favorite collections from them.


I used a Prima Mask Stencil to Spray Lindys all over the papers :) 



Inside the box I added a few vintage treasures to complete the Vintage theme :) 






 Thank you so much for stopping by!!
All the Lindys Products I used for this box are down below :)
Hugz,

Inside my Shabby Chic Wardrobe

Hi Everyone,

   I want to share with you how I store some of my favorite trims and laces that I love working with in my Shabby Chic Studio. 

Some of my trims and laces I keep in little boxes and baskets around my studio to give me inspiration. 

All of these trims and laces I've been collecting for awhile...my special collection! :) 


Other trims, laces and fabrics I keep in my Shabby Chic Wardrobe.  Here I store pearl trims, fabric and venice embellishments and some of my shabby chic fabrics. 


I also keep some of my laces and trims that I have found at Thrift Stores. 


 Here is a little sneak peak of my Vintage Trims and Laces collection that I will share soon :)


Thank you for stopping by!!

Shabby Chic Heart Cameo Keepsake Box

Hi Everyone,

   I am very happy to share with you this Shabby Chic Keepsake Box that I altered using a lot of beautiful trims, laces and embellishments from one of my favorite stores Suhafuha Etsy. Watch Video HERE.


 I am very honored to design for her beautiful store and I had so much fun playing with all of these goodies.  I used this beautiful Shabby Chic Rosette trim in a Vintage Pink Color around the box.  In the center I used some of her metal embellishments and added a cameo.



 I also made a handmade flower using her trims and embellishments :) 


I added a few vintage buttons to the box and used Pink Velvet Ribbon on top of the box. 


The inside of the box was painted and added a few Venice Trims to the top!



 I had so much fun altering this wood box and I invite you to check out her store Suhafuha Etsy for some of these gorgeous products :) You can also find her on Zibbet.


 Thank you so much for stopping by and hope you find some inspiration!

Cartographer Journal - Introducing Prima's Flowers

Hi Everyone,

   I am back with another project using one of Prima's new lines Cartographer and new Prima Flowers.  This collection was designed by Frank Garcia...... soooo beautiful! Watch Video HERE.


I am in love with this collection its soooooo Vintage!! I used a photo take at the Grand Canyon!
The new prima flowers are beautiful too with different styles and colors! 


I added a little of Gesso to the flowers to make them a bit more Shabby Chic and added a few Prima Metal Embellishments like this Vintage key. 


Since the Grand Canyon is full with treasures I thought this cute metal sign by Prima would be perfect for the journal :) 

Please be sure to check out the Prima Blog for more sneak peaks of these flowers!

Dream Garden Frame - Prima Princess Collection

Hi Everyone,

    I am so excited to share with you my first project using the Prima Princess Collection.  You can watch the video HERE.


I am in love with this collection.  The soft colors and patterns are perfect for those shabby chic projects. I added new Prima flowers around the frame and used some of the new Shabby Chic Resin pieces.  I used a picture of my Bengal Cat and I :) 


I also used one of the New Metal pieces "Dream Garden"  this collection inspired me to create a "garden" theme frame.  The papers are perfect for fuzzy cutting.  I cut a few of the fairies to add them around the frame. 


Prima also has these beautiful Shabby Chic Angel Letters.  One of my new favorite embellishments :) 

I hope you enjoyed this frame!
