my gorgeous daughter-for Scraps of Elegance

hi! After an online preview, I absolutely couldn't wait to get my March DT kit in the mail from Scraps of Elegance! This kit, "Anna's Daydream" has the most fabulous collection of papers and other goodies, and the colours are perfect for my style. I scooped the photo of my daughter from Facebook when I saw how beautifully it was going to coordinate with the papers, and I love the way they look together!

In addition to the kit items, I used cheesecloth, ink and chipboard from past kits-Melinda is so generous with the items she packs!

 I painted the resin feathers black and dry-brushed them with the same pink that I used to tint the texture paste, and painted the chipboard lattice pieces black as well. The foliage is a Memory Box die and the punches are Martha Stewart-flowers by Recollections from Michael's crafts. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Vintage Wedding layout for Gina's Designs

hello there, crafty friends! Lynne here with a heritage page featuring some beautiful doilies and chipboard from Gina's as well as a wonderful old wedding photo from 1915 of my grandmother's cousin.

I inked the doilies to make them stand out a  little more, and I heat-embossed the flourishes with Stampendous Aged Ivory, then gently rubbed on a little of the same maroon ink with my finger. The papers used were from the February Scraps of Elegance kit, as were the gilded flakes, and the beautiful butterflies are made by Reneabouqets.
