Double Waterfall Folio

Today I am sharing a very special project!!!
This is a Double Waterfall Folio.  

I created this for a friends mother.
She is celebrating her anniversary very soon and wanted a special gift for her husband.
I used the Mirabelle Paper from The Paper Studio, you can get this at Hobby Lobby.
I used some spellbinder dies to create the frame and some mats.  I then cut a crochet doily in half and
 used it at the top and bottom of the photo.

This is the inside of the folio.  I created two waterfalls and it will hold 36 photos.

On the bottom right corner I have a couple chipboard pieces.  I painted the word "Love" with gesso and then inked it with Victorian Velvet distress ink. 
On the top right corner, I have a flower cluster.  I used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I also added some stamens from Hobby Lobby.

Along the spine I used some cream colored crochet trim and some dark brown chinese braid.
The bottom left is a flower cluster using flowers from WOC.  I also included a bird cage I got from a very sweet friend, Darlene!
Thanks for stopping!!

Vintage Altered Stacking Boxes - SCB DT Project

Welcome to this weeks project!
Shabby is Chic Boutique Design Team Project.
This week I have altered a set of stacking boxes.  I love the vintage look these boxes have.  The beautiful paper is Songbird by Prima that is just gorgeous!

Each box has vintage lace, pearl trim and bows to tie them all together.
I also used some cameos, in two different colors and heart shaped wood buttons along with some resin roses, flat back pearls, pearl and gold embellishment..

The large box has this beautiful rose gold metal bow with rhinestones adding a cameo to the center.  I used another cameo in the flower cluster on top of the box.  I layered the vintage lace alternating each layer to give it the look of a larger lace.  I also used a crocheted doily that I cut in half and used on the large and medium size boxes.

The medium size box has an applique bow with cameo, again layering the vintage lace to match the larger box.  I added a pearl and gold embellishment to the front of the box.  I also used some of my dangle lace to drape over the edge.

The smallest box also has an applique bow with a large flat back pearl as its center.  Again layering the vintage lace to tie all three boxes together.  I also used some applique leaves under the flower clusters.
Also tying the boxes together is each box has pattern paper with birds on the lids.

I hope you like what I have created this week and please check out all the other lovely ladies on the team to see what they have created.  Below is a list of items used from Shabby is Chic Boutique on facebook.

Altered Wine Bottle - SCB DT Project

Hello Crafters!  Kim here with my first DT Project for Shabby is Chic Boutique on Facebook!
I went out of my comfort zone and created an Altered Wine Bottle.

This picture below are the items I used from the shop.

Now let me explain what I have done!!
First I decoupaged the beautiful rose napkin to the wine bottle.  Now this is my first time doing this and I think I did a great job.  I then wrapped some cording from my stash around the top of the bottle and then added the pearl trim and tiny flower lace.

I then took the beautiful flower trim with dangles and cut it apart.  I staggered the flower pieces around the top of the bottle.  I then added the flat back pearls and the flower with gold.  I love how the dangles just drape over the bottle.

To finish the bottle off I added more of the pearl trim to the bottom.  I also added the cameo with the leaf appliques as a finishing touch.

I hope you like what I have created.  Please check out my video on my Youtube channel.  Also check out the other design team members on Shabby is Chic Boutique blog.  Below is a list of what I used on my project.
