for the love of...



A quiet day...sigh.  Back to the good ol' school routine and crafting today.  Things are heating up outside and in...with my overstuffed fabric box covering the entire dining room table.  Here to share some news and a gift set...which is always fun.  I was recently asked to join two design teams...one as a guest designer for Pro31 Designs who carry an amazing variety of embellishments and trims and the other a design team member of a Denmark paper company Riddersholm Design who create collections that are beautiful in both color and design.  So to introduce products from each I created a box and ornament set...

I used RD Huntington Garden paper and tag, mulberry paper flowers, all lace and ribbon from RD,  burlap mesh, DsTrove vintage buttons, May Road stick pin, wire hanger from Stampington.
The box was created from Melissa Frances (Stampington) and RD papers.  Used a large crochet flower below the fabric garland, Papertrey Ink butterfly dies (layered and stitched together), tag created from RD tag sheets and the mulberry flower.  The beautiful lace is then wrapped around the box and tied in a bow.  Added a white vintage button and finished...
So here is my little introduction to these two fabulous companies.  You can also find Riddersholm products here in the US.  Just flip through the paper catalog here and you will fall in love with the papers...even more beautiful in person.  Will be back with much more in the next few days!

Hope your Monday is starting off well!
