Domestic Goddess

Today I’m sharing my latest project for The Crafty Scrapper.

I started with a burlap base, that I made sturdier by sewing a piece of chipboard between two pieces of burlap.

The background scene is from Bo Bunny’s new “Soiree” collection. These papers are so soft and pretty, I am in love! It’s like a mix of “Shabby Chic” meets “Fixer Upper”. Anyway, back to the project.

My plan was to add one of my vintage pattern girls to the scene, and lo and behold, I have one sitting down (of course I do). I gave her some depth by adhering with pop dots.

Then I layered on the trims and embellishments – all available at The Crafty Scrapper. These new fabric flowers from Maya Road are so soft and elegant.

Believe in Magic

I am kicking off the Christmas season with an ornament that I made for a recent event. I was an instructor at The Crafty Scrapper’s Christmas Carousel event this past Saturday. It was a long, fun day of crafting.

For my project, I started with a cardboard base that I die cut (using an old die that I have no idea who makes it). Then we painted it using two colors of Distress paint – Iced Spruce and Weathered Wood. Then we added Forest Moss Distress Stain, Pewter Perfect Pearls Mist, and silver Bo Bunny Glitter Paste.

The dies are all Tim Holtz. The adorable Santa image is from Authentique’s new Christmastime collection. We painted, glittered, and embossed a wooden snowflake from Do Crafts.

More Fun with Enchanted Harvest

This is the fourth project that I made using the new Bo Bunny Enchanted Harvest collection. I don’t remember the last time I used a collection so much! Those little fairies pranced away with my heart and I just had to use it all up. I made several pages for my previous mini book and I ran out of room. So, I made another mini book with the leftovers.

For the cover, I used a chipboard leaf from a Maya Road mini album and covered it with one of the papers from the collection. I dug out a fall-themed Prima flower from my stash and a few paper and velvet leaves.

I went through an old poetry book to find a perfect verse. I inked a piece of cardstock with Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink and then used my vintage typewriter to add the text.

Family

Today I’m sharing a new design team project for The Crafty Scrapper. This time, I’m showing off the new Bo Bunny “Enchanted Harvest” collection. I am still in love with this paper collection, and have already made several projects with it. The images are adorable and the colors really have me in the mood for fall.

Now that fall has arrived, I’m already thinking of our upcoming holidays, including Thanksgiving. When I think of Thanksgiving, I think of family. I wanted to create a home decor piece that incorporates all of those feelings.

I started with a piece of burlap that I folded and stitched at the top to create a sleeve (like a curtain) to hang on a vintage butter knife (yes, I have everything in my stash). Then I started layering my papers, images, and trims.

Autumn in Fairyland

I fell in love with the new Bo Bunny Enchanted Harvest collection, and went to work making several projects. This mini book is one of the projects I’m sharing with this collection. On the cover, I used one of the images with an adorable fairy peeking from behind the flowers. I added vintage velvet millinery flowers, a glittered skeleton leaf, and glittered a butterfly from the paper collection. The trim and wood frame are from my stash, and I typed the title on my vintage typewriter.

Let’s take a look inside to see what those fairies are up to. This page is a collage of the Bo Bunny papers (including the glittered fairy wings) and a vintage photo.

I liked that I didn’t have to do much to embellish these already beautiful papers. They already have that layered, vintage look that I love.
