soft and shabby...

Melissa Frances has a new line out this month called 5th Avenue designed by Sherelle Christensen, and it's so soft and beautiful. Check out their blog for your chance to win this line and to see all the lovelies, papers, projects made with it, etc!
Today I thought I would show you some things I made with this new line. This is a little layout about my love for all things shabby and pretty - crochet, architectural details, handmade flowers, twine, pearls, etc. I took pictures of some things I loved and then printed them out in 2x2" squares.

The pockets are Melissa Frances as well - I tucked photos into them and shabbied them up a bit with paint, stitching and a rub on.

This next one is a fun layout of my daughter Kati. I die cut a bunch of butterflies with my Sizzix and went to town on this one, not really trying to get it perfect...just having fun with it. I still want to add some journaling strips above the ric rac.

This little girl is very much made of wings. She is definitely an angel from above. These pictures were taken a few weeks ago of Kati when she was playing dress up! :)

Last is a 10 page mini album I made with the smaller envelope and tags mini album by Melissa Frances! It's called "10 Blessings" and I scrapped one thing on each page that I feel blessed for in my life. *Edited to add: This album was sold as a kit at CHA, so I needed to remove the inside pages from my gallery. I apologize for the incovenience.*


I have more to share with you tomorrow.... some Jenni Bowlin projects made with the Feb. kits that go on sale Feb. 1st! Have a beautiful day!

Repeating myslef - Love em!! You would love to dig in my bowl with old buttons. My granny was a seamstress here in Sweden in the 50´s and 60´s, and my mum rescued some stuff from her that I now have. They are so pretty that I hardly don´t dare to use them...
