I'm not one to gush all over paper.
who am i kidding?
i can't pass a papyrus store without drooling and begging mr. handsome to let me into the store just to be in the presence of pretty paper! Well, Decembers KR kit had major pretty paper AND the embellishments are to die for! I couldn't help myself :)
Look at this beauty.
I recently had some Anthro gift cards to spend so I bought this pretty head band. But it needed something. When I received my december kit and saw this pretty flower i knew it would fit perfectly with the headband. xoxo Major crush! I just added a bobby pin on the back of the flower to attach it to the band. pretty pretty.
And don't even get me started on the pretty little flower sequins in the kit oh my goodness xoxo!
For our family Christmas exchange Mr. Handsome and I are gifting these little pretties filled with gift cards. It was so easy to make, the kraft envelopes are awesome and dainty. I LOVED the felt flower embellishments!
I have a hard time using them because I feel like hoarding them for my little one ( when the time comes). Wouldn't they look cute on onesies? I have been wanting to try and work more with felt lately... more to come on that end ;)
I'm such a fan of MOO cards. I had some little cuties made a while ago using the pictures in my Flickr stream. I had made this layout of my cute little sister Chicki ( aka- Gabby). We recently celebrated her birthday and I just HAD to use the little card to give to her. I made the kraft box out of one of the papers in the KR december kit, added the pretty yellow ribbon and cute little flower - so easy and perfect for a handmade gift.
I made a pretty vintage looking piece for my living room. I have a TON of frames. I have been buying frames since forever but I have never hung one. Or even filled one with a picture. I am non-commital about stabbing the wall full of holes. ( I used to work in an art gallery and vowed to have art hung everywhere - I just change my mind ALL the time lol ) And when friends come over they notice there is no art or pictures hung up. So time for a change. Thanks to Mr. handsome's little sis for taking this photo of me and the mister on the beach xo.
This little cutie pie was born on thanksgiving day. She's just so adorable and wonderful. She is my best friends first baby. And I am so so excited for her! I made her this little art piece to hang in her baby's room. I made a cute little star garland on the layout. I cannot stop making garlands :) They are so addicting. ( speaking of which I made some to celebrate my sisters birthday and now they are just hanging around my room... looks like they will make their way to my ETSY shop this monday morning so check it out if you are interested :)
And here is a sweet little reminder for you to SOAR and spread your WINGS ! That's my resolution for this coming year. Do it do it do it. Not just think it. *smiles.
So that's what I made with just pretty paper and some crazy sewing... I don't think I will ever get over my paper crush xoxo
I will be back Monday with a live link to my shop update and some pretty pictures to ooh and ahh over ;P
Have fun creating,
