The White Challenge

Week #133
This weeks Shabby Tea Room Challenge is to create a card or project inspired by the photo and to use white plus only one additional color.

I created a paper bag album using Bo Bunny's Little Miss Marie paper (gorgeous! I need to hoard more of this paper!) I used a white metal frame to frame a beautiful shabby rose. I embellished the frame with white roses and a shabby key. I also used a Martha Stewart punch and some white lace for the edge. There is white seam binding tied to the book rings and a hanging crystal charm. The lace, metal, and crystals were inspiration from the photo. Thanks for taking a peek!

Sweet Memories

I made this 5 x 5 mini album using Bazzill's Avalon collection. I LOVE this paper! It was so fun to work with. I cut the chipboard and paper out on my Cricut. There are 10 pages including the front and back covers. I just started getting into buttons and used quite a few on this album. There are 9 spots for photos. Thanks for looking!

Labor of Love

Week #130
This weeks Shabby Tea Room challenge was to create a project using colors from the inspiration photo, and to include a banner.

I used Echo Park's Fanciful Floral for the background paper and Picket Fence for the banner flags. I painted chipboard letters and sanded the edges for a shabby look. The bows are made out of seam binding and are embellished with blue flower buttons. I used lace trim at the bottom and a painted chipboard bird with a rose and letter beads.
