Curtsey Boutique Style

 I have a few projects to share that I've recently created for
This is a wonderfully unique Etsy shop featuring beautiful shabby-chic and vintage inspired crafts.

This card includes all sorts of pretties from the shop: shabby chic scallop flowers, polka dot embossed shipping tags, glitter embellishments and dyed doilies.  After stamping on the tag (non-embossed side) I tucked it into a vintage library pocket, also found at Curtsey Boutique.

For this Spring/Easter project, I covered a 4x4 canvas frame with burlap by first cutting one of the burlap bags (found at Curtsey Boutique) and then stretching it across and gluing in place at the back.  I then embellished with felt roses, new felt pansies, felt doilies and burlap and glitter butterflies.
The little block can be hung or sit on a shelf!

Finally are these neat "Shower Notes" that I created using blue library cards embellished
with a felt doily (cut in half), a burlap butterfly and a sentiment that I stamped and then trimmed from a white library card.  I think these would be so cute tucked in a wicker basket for all of the guests to fill out. 

Visit the Curtsey Boutique Blog for even more ideas and amazing projects!

This is absolutely one of my most favorite times of the year:  the celebration of our Risen Savior!
I hope that you all have a very HAPPY EASTER! 
I'll be back tomorrow with a BIG HUGE and FUN announcement :)


  1. These are GORGEOUS! I LOVE that first card, what a beautiful flower and I love how the doily frames it and the flower made of flowers is so clever on that second piece.

  2. Gorgeous projects! The felt is so pretty and your stitching is impeccable!!! The shower notes are amazing, your handwriting is so pretty and really matches the stamped words perfectly :)

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!

Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut
To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
