As many of you know, I love to create my layouts with lots of layers. This gives me the ability to tuck in flowers, beautiful board, ephemera etc. I started by creating the background dimensional adding my papers on cardboard to give it height. I started by adding some Ivory Wide Floral Embroidered Lace which always provides a sweet vintage feel. Then I prepped my different beautiful board pieces. Some I painted white which would be Beautiful Board Ornate Leaves Tuck Ins , I then embossed with brass embossing powder the Beautiful Board Fancy Fall Tuck Ins , and some I distressed with Oxide Distress Inks which would be Beautiful Board Large Fancy Fall Corners
The Beautiful Board Large Pumpkin Patch Set I painted white and then the background paper I covered it with Gawdie Girl Chunky Glitter Glass in Buttercream and Gawdie Girl Chunky Glitter Glass in Diamond
The flowers I then chose to use are the Soft Peach Roses & Leaves, as well as Mini Soft Peach Mulberry Roses & Leaves. I then used Honey Roses & Leaves. Reneabouquets has some wonderfully unique trinkets in the store to use as well and I used Tarnished Brass Pocket Watch and I cut an image to put inside and then the glass part is actually a large floral stone I got a bag of these at the Dollar Store. I completed the layout by adding a couple of Reneabouquets precious handmade butterflies and the ones I used are Sweet Dreams Premium Paper Butterflies in Buttercream

Hi everyone, it's time to get a head start on your Christmas crafts and today I have a fun idea to use for those inexpensive paper bags. Let's put your own creative spin on some of them. Let's get started.
I purchased these bags at the Dollar Store and decided to add some artwork to the front of them. Reneabouquets store is plump full of beautiful Christmas ornate goodies to add to your projects. I started with both by adding some texture with a some stamping with embossing powder and then stenciled using texture paste. In the video below you can watch my creative process. The bag on the right I used Printed Beautiful Board Small Holly And Berry Corners With Tuck Ins and also Beautiful Words Small Merry And Bright Laser Cut Chipboard . The flowers used are listed below.

First up is a vintage sewing machine drawer that I had purchased sometime last year at an antique store. I thought it would be really fun to hold all my pretty laces that I use to create with. So here we go.
