On The Fringe!

Whoot!  I received an email this past week from the editor of Simply Handmade Magazine;  my sweet little crepe paper fringe (Pink Confection) will be featured in the Jan/Feb 2012 edition...I'm just a tad excited wwweee!  I have TONS of color schemes available at my Etsy shop, Dot and Whimsy. It's become quite the popular item with my Etsy customers...I take custom orders too!
 I Heart {Ippity} Time
With my newest stamps from I Heart {Ippity}, I created this clean and simple card.  I love the possibilities with the selection of flowers in this stamp collection, {Flowers + Friends= Priceless}
 I stamped the stems onto a strip of cardstock, then spritz with Smooch spray and inked around the edges.  The flower images were stamped onto distressed scrapbook paper...gives the look of watercolor without the fuss.  I then hand-cut the flowers closely to the stamped edge and arranged them over the stems. A little machine stitching and sticker letters completed the look.  Yes, this is clean-and-simple to me LOL

Your Scrapbook Stash: An August Layout
On other design fronts, I completed another layout for Your Scrapbook Stash using Echo Park's NEW Splash papers...I've loved using these papers.
Back to the craft room today...Dot and Whimsy is becoming quite bare!  Oh and don't forget to visit Paper Issues;  the latest link party theme is "Let's Ride".  I'm always so impressed by the unique projects that everyone shares over there...many, many talented designers and I'm delighted to be amongst them :)
Stay cool and I'll see you all soon!

  1. Congratulations on the publication, Shellye! I love your "on the fringe" and definitely plan on buying some soon! Especially with Halloween decorating coming up soon. :o)

    Your card and layout are cute, too. The quilted background on your layout is something I like to do in my mini books. I should try it on a layout!
