dressed up...


In the crafting world it is all about how you dress it up, right?  Today I wanted to share a fun post and tutorial to dress up your next project HERE ...
Although I attempted this a couple of times and it still does not look exactly like the tutorial, loved creating it all the same.  Used Dear Lizzy American Crafts vellum for the top layer of the skirt, vintage lace to line it and Crate Paper for the dress.  Also added Glitz, Lily Bee, Pebbles and Pink Paislee papers to the mix.  Stamps from Pink Paislee (Spring Jubilee) and Precious Remembrance.  The things you can learn from You Tube and Pinterest is amazing!  Now onto a card made for the MIM Papertrey Ink challenge this week...
Mixing those patterned papers from Glitz, The Girls Paperie, Authentique, Melissa Frances and Lily Bee.  Also included a button and tag from Chic Tags...and not complete without a Papertrey Ink sentiment and buttons!  Off to fold something new...thinking boy card?
