Shabby Thinking Of You Card Vintage Pink Sweet Miss You Mother's Day

This card measures just over 5 inches by just over 5 inches. It is a square. On the front I have hand stitched the top in an "x" stitch across the top. I then added embellishments on the front such as a vintage image of a mama bird and a little bird, a stamped birdhouse, stamped key, an embossed heart lock, my hand stamped linen trim, buttons and more. 

This is has been distressed and inked all the way around. The inside is also distressed and inked as well. There's 3 keys stamped on the bottom.

Always and Forever Wedding Wish Tree Tags in PINK!

They measure 2 inches by 4 inches. I have cut the bottoms elegantly

 and I've hand shaded all the way around with a light pink. Then

 towards the bottom of the tag I have stamped ALWAYS AND

 FOREVER. I stamped these at the bottom for you to have room to 

write on the front. Which makes them a sweet tag for a wedding 

wish tree, a gift to a loved one (you can write a little sentiment), 

party favors for an anniversary party or to tie onto napkins and you 

can write the persons name for the plate setting.

Cupcake Shaped Premade Album

a cupcake shaped album that measures 8 inches tall and 7 1/2 inches wide at the widest point. The cover is very 3 dimensional and has a sweet shabby look. It is completely sewn all the way around on every page. On the front there are handmade flowers... some are fabric, some are paper and I've even crocheted one. There's a banner at the top and is lifted off the cover. Towards the middle there are scalloped circles with the edges hand aged that read "Sweet." Behind these I have two cupcake picks tucked in, chipboard hearts and I have stamped a little cake. Below there are more flowers and there are vellum words that read "Cherished Memories." Below that in the corner is a little rhinestone. There's also a few beaded sprays at the top with the flowers too. I have tulle on the side of each page for easy turning. This album is gathered together on the side with an assortment of ribbon and a strand of soft pink yarn to pick up the lavender colored crocheted flower on the cover. 

On the FIRST set of pages there are two photo mats. There are purple flowers, a cupcake pic, a little tag with a purple rhinestone square, a crocheted flower with a beaded center and on the other page are more paper flowers (inked & embellished) and a quote that reads "There is only one happiness in life to love and be loved." 

On the SECOND set of pages there are two photo mats. On the first one are 3 dimensional flowers, inked & embellished, a scalloped circle for journaling and this is all placed on a white doily. Then there's a tag with a pink sparkly cupcake that is lifted off the tag and a journaling box with a chipboard heart accent. At the top of the second photo mount is an embellishment that reads "celebrate" and there's a little cupcake. 

On the THIRD set of pages there are two more photo mats. On the left is a 3 dimensional and inked large flower, two scalloped lollipop flowers (edges done with ink) and joined together with a brad, and there's a tag that reads "Keep calm and eat a cupcake." On the right are more flowers, a pink tag with a purple square rhinestone and at the top I've embellished with sewing and it reads "One in a million." 

On the LAST set of pages there are two more photo mats. At the top are paper trim and they are lifted off the photo mats. Then they have yellow rhinestones in the center. There's two large flowers that I've hand embossed a little for detail and they have sugared centers. I then have a 3 dimensional scalloped cupcake tag at the bottom right and a heart scalloped embellishment. 

The back is covered with coordinating paper from this. 

And one last look.....

Mother Card 6 x 6 Sewn - Vintage & Shabby Chic

It measures 6 inches by 6 inches. It's completely been hand aged, distressed and has a vintage doily. It has a shabby vintage feel to it. 

On the cover, I have handdrawn and then watercolored a girl. I have also used chalk and a little pencil. She is muted as far as color to go along with the vintage look. There's also a vintage lace doily underneath her, which is sewn. Then there is also the backing, which is sewn for detail. I have also curled the edges & hand aged them. There's leaves, sequins and pearls too. On the bottom right is a mother's quote that reads A Mother is she who can take the place of all others, but whose place no one else can take. There's also a silver little bird charm below it. It reminded me of Mother's because that's where we begin. Our nest. Our home.

Spring Layout with Tear Bear and Bunny

Well, I meant to get this layout up yesterday, but the kids had me running around and I was just so busy. Well, here it is..... And here are the details.... 

The FIRST PAGE has two photo mats. These mats are appropriate for a 4 x 6 photo. Some trimming may be needed, but not much (if any). At the top of the first photo mat is a orange satin ribbon with a hand dyed tag (af, lf) that reads "Smile." The second photo mat has flowers & a pinwheel. Below the two photo mats is a cute white picked fence which is lifted off the page and the little bear. He is created out of Mulberry paper which makes him fuzzy! There is a handstamped tag & also a chipboard tag. The little flowers have 3d pearl centers in a spring fun light yellow. 

The SECOND PAGE also has two photo mounts (also the same size) and it also has the white picket fence lifted off the page. Then there's the little bunny! He is holding a carrot in one hand and an egg in the other. There's a stamped embellishment that reads "wishing you a sweet easter" on hand dyed paper (af, lf). Then there's also a hand made and paper pieced little basket in the corner of the photo mount. Behind the second photo mat is a pull out tag and it's decorated on each side. On the one side (as seen in photo) it says "Spring." 
There's also an embellishment on the first photo mount that reads "Wonderful." 

On the picket fence, there is twine running between them to give it a real 3 dimensional look. 

I hope everyone is having a wonderful monday! I still have all week to scrap and create and get my items up and ready for purchase by the weekend for esty.
