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!!
