South Pacific & Tea Garden Eye Candy!

**Don't forget to sign-up for the PageMaps U Card Class Giveaway**

Basic Grey
has two new, beautiful collections up for your perusal today 
and a chance at winning the collections for your very own!

With "South Pacific", I created a 3-D 12X12 photo frame featuring the
"Map of the World" paper from the collection, along with some ephemera pieces and stickers.

I machine-stitched along the latitude lines and then added a few hand-stitched
X's to give texture.  I clustered the embellishments with foam adhesive and then
added Candy Dots to all of the places that I would like to travel to some day!

And here is a quick card showcasing the gorgeous colors and
artwork that can be found:

"Tea Garden" inspired this whimsical and shabby-chic styled banner.
I started with a scalloped chipboard banner set by Maya Road, and painted it black:

I used various dies to craft the rolled flowers, hearts and leaves...they're
perfect for layering!  Adding to the element of black, I incorporated some of
the black chalkboard wood veneers from the Evergreen Collection.

And finally, one of my very favorite cards, ever!  That bird is the sweetest!

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…
