Oh my shabby goodness!

Hey everyone! Wow, this weekend has been a whirlwind...LITERALLY!! I spent almost all weekend in my dancing shoes and got spun around so much that I think I lost a few brain cells...hopefully they'll find their way back, LOL!

Anyway, I finally was able to photograph my next shabby card using some of that new Girls' Paperie line...let's just get right to it, shall we?? I know I promised it on Sunday and the clock is ticking it's way already onto Monday!


I.Love.This.Card.
Every single thing about it. I used some new Papertrey Ink goodies on it...I ADORE the new Button Boutique set...the fact that Michelle Wooderson concepted it is just icing on the cake. :)
Plus those Tiny Tags die concepted by Melissa Phillips...need I say more?? *Swoon* I made another one of my ribbon flowers...this time in shabby cream.


And you know how I've been trying to get better at sharing?? Well I made a little something for ya...

Meet my Girls' Shabby kit. I added 3 pieces of that gorgeous Girls' Paperie patterned paper that I used on my last two projects...all sized to layer a card front or be cut up *gasp* if you so choose. :) I sewed a piece of muslin together to form up a pocket and adhered a piece of vintage crochet right to the top. I stamped "Craft Worthy" on top so you can reuse to store your precious vintage items right inside.
And the contents....


1 yard each of hand-dyed pink and blue seam binding
2 hand stitched ribbon flowers
10 tea-stained tags (die cut from the PTI die Tiny Tags)
various Girls' Paperie die cuts
4 vintage buttons
2 decorative pins (from Maya Road)
tea stained wide twill
and 2 mini glassine bags (not shown)

Absolutely luscious yes?? I'm in the process of putting both the card and kit up in my Etsy shop. :) I hope you enjoy it!!!

PS. Check this out.....I AM THRILLED!!!!!!! More on this later. :)
