Easter Tag.....yes, I know it's a little late lol

Hello Friends!
As I'm typing this up, I'm realizing that it will post after Easter. Sorry about that, but I hope you still enjoy it!
It's a little Shabby Easter Tag, with sweet little vintage image.

I love to go to tag sales to look for vintage laces and ribbons like the ones I've used here. You can find them for a song and I think they are so much prettier than they make now. :)  I added a little piece of dirtied up seam binding for a little pop of color.(distress ink)
I love to add these little butterflies to my tags...butterflies and Shabby Chic just seem to go together.
A little bit of Prima trim adds a little sparkle. I can make one flourish last for 10 projects!
This is one of my favorite Vintage Easter images, such sweet little chicks.
I cut the "JOY" out of a piece of cardstock that was embossed using my eBosser and Teresa Collins Beautiful Words embossing folder. (you can see the folder in my previous post) 


Once again, a very easy project that can be used on a gift, or as an embellishment in your scrapbook or mini album.
Thanks for peeking!


Hello Friends!
I'm here with another project for Craftwell, showcasing Teresa Collins new embossing Folder Beautiful Words. I have to say this is a very versatile embossing folder. I've seen beautiful home decor made from a full embossed sheet and adorable cards and scrapbook captions cut from an embossed sheet.
I made a little pocket that can be used as a card or as an embellishment for a mini album or scrapbook page.
I ran the embossing folder with a piece of aqua cardstock, through my eBosser.
Then I just simply cut out the "U", "R" and "Special" from the sheet and inked it up to make the words pop.

A couple roses and butterflies add girlie whimsy to the block letters.




 I added a pretty little Fairy tag ~ If I use this as a card, a sentiment can be wrote or stamped on the back. If I us it in a mini, it can be used as a journal spot or a picture mat  

Thanks for taking a peek!

Hello Friends! I'm thrilled to be serving another term on the Craftwell Design Team!
I got to play with Teresa Collins new Wood grain Embossing folders. This is one of the giant A4 size. it will emboss a full 8.5 x 11 inch sheet.

This is what I made with it, a whimsical Easter card.
I used mt eBosser to emboss a piece of aqua cardstock with the wood grain embossing folder. Then I die cut the fence shape. I lightly brushed the fence with white acrylic paint and a foam brush. I really like the effect and it was very easy.

Then I just embellished it with butterflies I punched with Martha Stewart punches, Prima Bling, some of my flowers and one of my sweet Easter images.

I love the look of the wood grain on the fence!

Thanks for peeking!
