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.

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.

Off to the Circus

Happy Friday! Today I am sharing a circus-themed shadowbox that I made using a Maya Road slide ruler and Bo Bunny’s Carnival papers. First, I painted the slide ruler black and then covered all sides with the Bo Bunny paper. The “slide” is covered in a series of images that entices you to come inside.

I topped the piece with a banner made from more Bo Bunny paper, crepe paper, glitter, and flags.

Dreams

What a long blogging break I’ve been on! I expect it will continue for a bit longer. We did find a house to buy and we will close and move into it in mid-July. In the meantime, I have been busy packing up our house and getting everything ready to move.

I wanted to finally share a project I made for Mother’s Day. I made three variations of this layout (for me, my mom, and my sister) that features a sweet photo of Lily Munchkin sound asleep.

I used beautiful patterned paper from Sassafras and embellished with all sorts of bits and bobs.

I added Maya Road chipboard wings that I coated in glossy white enamel paint from Ranger.

She looks so sweet and angelic. Lily Munchkin couldn’t understand why she had wings, so she was told “because she didn’t have horns to put on you instead!” 🙂

Create Banner

I made this banner for a friend’s birthday. Since it’s something to hang in her scrap room, I made it in colors that match her room, rather than fluffy pinks and fairies that would match mine.

I started with a Maya Road canvas album that I embellished with burlap, cardboard scallops, painted alphas, and paper flowers.

Using the pre-made banner pieces allowed me to spend time on the embellishing instead of cutting and stitching canvas.

I used a set of alphas that have a great pattern, but the color scheme wasn’t right.So, I painted them red. You can still see the pattern through the paint, but not the colors.

I added a scalloped piece of cardboard that I further distressed and added paint, a denim-pattern scalloped circle, and navy seam binding to tie it all together.
