White Rose DT Project: Easel Card/Chocolate Box

Welcome to my 1st DT Project for White Rose Crafts!!

What I have created for you today is an Easel Card/Chocolate Box.

This would be perfect for that special Valentine!

This box measures 3x4 and holds 6 Ghirardelli chocolate squares.

I created this box from kraft cardstock. I added the pattern paper from Authentique, matting the image with cream cardstock and the shimmer cardstock.  I inked everything with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  I popped up the image with foam tape.

I then added scrap pieces of lace, pearl trim and flowers.  I inked the edges of the flower petals with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.  I also matted the inside of the box.

Altered Tray - Last DT Project for SCB

Today I say goodbye to an awesome design team.
This is my last project for Shabby is Chic Boutique.
I just want to say that I have had an amazing time and loved working with some very amazing ladies.
I want to especially thank Amy Love for giving me this awesome opportunity to design for her amazing shop.  I hope I have done her proud!
Now lets get to my final project.
I have altered a wooden serving tray.
I have designed this to hold a 4x6 photo.

This will stand or can be hung on the wall.
First I painted it with white gesso, then added pattern paper.
The top right of the layered paper, which I also distressed the edges, I rolled each of the corners.
I then tucked in a paper doily to the top and bottom.  I then added some scrap pieces of lace to the top doily.  I added some paper flowers, and some applique leaves.  I also added a couple of the organza flowers with rhinestone center.  I finished it off with adding the pearl garland, a pink cameo, a flat back pearl and some flat back pearl roses.

The bottom left corner  I added 2 different dangle laces along with some square shaped flat back pearl trim.  I then added some paper flowers, another organza with rhinestone flower, pearl garland and this amazing pearl with rhinestone button.

To the top of the tray I added more of the dangle trim and these beautiful flat back roses.  You can see from the picture there was a little wind and it gave the lace some amazing movement.

I hope you have enjoyed my projects during my term on this amazing team.  I have had a great time working with these amazing products.
Thank you so much Amy!!!

Altered Book Box SCB Design Team Project

Welcome to this weeks project!
I have altered a wooden book box.
I have used some new and old items for Shabby is Chic Boutique on this box.

This first thing I did was gesso the whole box.  I then added pattern paper, which I love the brown and blue together.  I took the blue paper and curled it back to show a paper doily, a small fabric doily, a metal key, a small ivory rose resin piece, and a flat back pearl heart.  I then added a large applique along with some flat back self adhesive pearl trim.

I then decorated on top of the applique with some paper flowers, dangle trim, heart shaped wooden button, a flat back pearl heart, more ivory resin roses, an organza fabric flower, leave appliques, metal spoon, a rose colored metal bow and some pearl garland trim.

I then added some lace trim, pearl trim and resin rose pieces to what would be the pages of a book.  I then added some dangle trim and pearl trim to the spine of the book.

I love the way this book box turned out.  I hope you like what I have created this week.  I have one more project to go before my term is up.  I have so much enjoyed being apart of the Shabby is Chic Boutique Design Team.  I would like to thank Amy Love for asking me to be apart of it.
Thank you so much!!

Shabby Chic Banner DT Project for Shabby is Chic Boutique

Welcome to this weeks project!
This week I have created a beautiful shabby chic banner piece!

I used light weight chipboard for the base.  I covered the chipboard with some pattern paper, which you are not able to see.  The paper got covered up with some beautiful laces.  I then added some flatback pearl trim to the top along with some seam binding bows.

I used some heart trim on the edges along with some laces from my stash.  I created these super cute butterflies with pattern paper, distress ink, and stickles.  Its hard to see by they do have antenna's on them!!

I created this beautiful shabby flower with a rosette, cheesecloth, dangle trim, and some leaf appliques.  Adding a gorgeous bling piece to the center.

The bottom has a satin bow, a large flatback pearl, a flatback pearl hearts, and some dangle trim.
Below is a list of items used from the shop.
I also will be sending this to Miss Amy Love for her 1000 subbie challenge/giveaway!!
I hope she likes it.

Gift Set with Card

Welcome to this weeks project.
The last couple projects have been very extravagant, so this week I went simple.
I have made a little gift set with a matching card.

Starting with the card, it measures 6 x 5 1/4.  I added some pattern paper which I distressed all the edges.  I layered more pattern paper in two different styles, also distressing the edges.  I added a wood tag and a wood sentiment.  From Shabby is Chic boutique I added some beautiful lace, flat back pearl trim and some flat back roses to finish off the card.

My next item is actually some empty scotch tape rolls, which I glued together to form this pencil/pen holder.  I used more of the lace, flat back pearl trim, flat back roses and added a butterfly applique and a pink cameo from the shop.  I double layered the lace and added the pearl trim to the bottom.

This container is just a little smaller but just as cute!  I used a single layer of the lace adding the pearl trim and flat back roses as well.  If you look at the top of the lace you can see how I layered the pearl trim to give it a scalloped look.  I incorporated this technique in all three of the projects. 

I love the way my project has turned out.  Below is a list of the items from the shop that I used.
Thanks for stopping and Happy Crafting!!
