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 :)

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

A SN@P December Daily

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
