For You

Welcome to Week #94 in The Shabby Tea Room. This week Melissa is our shabby host and she asks that we create a card or project using the inspiration photo's 4 colors. (Blue, Pink (or Red), Yellow and Green)

"A Colorful and Shabby New Year"

I decided to use the Crafty Serets precious-ever-more purse template.

Both the template (014 Purse Template) and the patterned paper (004 Flower) are from the Creating with Vintage Illustrations CD2 by Crafty Secrets.
I printed the patterned paper onto cream CS first. I then printed the purse onto both cream CS and again onto the patterned paper. I trimmed the patterned paper pieces for the purse and adhered them onto the purse. I colored the handle with copics. The tag is from Papertrey Ink Tiny Tags. This purse is the perfect size to hold a gift card.

Crafty Secrets is our wonderful sponsor this week and the winner will receive the Creating With Vintage Patterns CD #2 and a gift certificate.
These CD's contain over 200 illustrations and include die cuts, templates and papers. The creative possiblities really are endless!

Check out the Shabby Girls' blogs for even more inspiration.
I hope you have time to play along with this week's fun challenge.
Enjoy the rest of 2011 and have a very Happy New Year!

A Krafty Christmas

Welcome to week #93 in The Shabby Tea Room. This week Char is our host and she asks that we make a card or project using red, kraft, knewsprint, silver paper and a star.

Here is the fun inspiration photo:

What a fun little wrapping station!

For my card I used the Merry Circle Sentiments - Merry Christmas from Bagaboo Digi Stamps. I pieced the image using Silver Shimmer, Red, and Kraft CS from Papertrey Ink. I added some machine feather stitching along the newsprint patterned paper and pinked the bottom edge.

This week's winner will receive 7 digi images from Bugaboo Stamps!

Be sure to check out the other Shabby Girls' blogs for more projects based on this week's fun challenge photo.

 Have a great week and a very Merry Christmas:)

A Very Crate Christmas Event

There's a fun challenge going on over at the Crate Paper blog. The challenge is to get crafty using papers and embellishments from the Peppermint Collection.

I made a holiday planner using papers from the Peppermint Collection 6 x 6 pad. I cut a tag from the Peppermint Collection accent Cuts using the Papertrey Ink jar die. The cover was made by piecing several of the papers together and then machine stitching in areas.
The title was made with an image from Papertrey Ink's Take Note stamp set.

Both sides of the inside of the planner have a skinny lined notebook. The tops are adorned with stickers from Alpha Labels. I punched out a circle from Candy Cane for the center of the button.
Thanks so much for visiting:)
