MY FIRST TRY ON A FABRIC BOOK............

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
HERE IT IS.........THE FIRST VINTAGE LACE BOOK I MADE!
 
 
 
 
 





WELL FOR MOTHER'S DAY I THOUGHT I WOULD MAKE SOMETHING SPECIAL.  I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO MAKE A VINTAGE FABRIC BOOK USING LACE, TRIM AND DOILIES SO I FIGURED THIS WOULD BE IDEAL.  I STARTED WITH A CANVAS BOOK BY 7GYPSY AND I EMBELLISHED EACH PAGE A LITTLE DIFFERENT.  I USED FLOWERS, THREADS, YARNS AND TRIMS TO GIVE THIS BOOK A LOT OF REAL ESTATE. 
I ENJOYED USING BURLAP, FABRICS AND TWINE ALONG WITH SPANISH MOSS.   I LOVE THE WAY IT CAME OUT.  MY DESIGN WILL BE FEATURED AND PUBLISHED AT
UNRULY PAPER CRAFTS IN THEIR JUNE ON LINE BLOGOZINE.  IM VERY EXCITED ABOUT MY ENTRY AND I WILL SHARE THE ARTICLE ON MY BLOG JUNE 7TH.  PLEASE CHECK BACK.  YOUR COMMENTS MEAN A LOT SO PLEASE REMEMBER TO POST THEM.
HAPPY DAY!!!!

Old eyeglass holder bought local antique shop.

I altered it with lace, glitter, flowers and an old vintage rhinestone earring.  I added some mocha color tule, leaf embellishments, and more rhinestone bling.  The crocheted trim brings back some victorian era. 
I'm not sure if I'm going to use this as business card holder or mini purse.  Very happy with the outcome.

COFFEE CUP MINI ALBUM I MADE FOR A SWAP ON CCL.............







 
THIS WAS SUCH A FUN SWAP TO DO ON CCL.  FIRST I TRACED A COFFEE CUP AND CUT OUT THE SHAPE ON CARDBOARD FROM A CERAL BOX.  I PUNCHED A HOLE ON THE SIDE AND ADDED A SILVER RING.  THEN I PAINTED AND TEXTURED THE CARDBOARD AND ADDED SCRAPBOOK PAPER.  BEFORE I APPLIED THE DESIGNER SCRAPBOOK PAPER,  I BURNT THE EDGES WITH A LIGHTER (ADULTS ONLY) TO DISTRESS AND MAKE IT LOOK OLD AND TORN.  I ADDED TAGS, BUTTONS, STICKERS AND PAINT CHIP SAMPLES TO GIVE THE ALBUM A REAL REUSE - RECYCLE KIND OF FEEL. 
 
ON THE COVER I ADDED A COFFEE CUP SLEEVE FROM A LOCAL COFFEE SHOP AND PAPER AND SILK FLOWERS WITH ROPE CENTER. 
I HOPE YOU ENJOYED MY DESIGN!!!!
HAPPY DRINKIN COFFEE
