shabby scrapbook page

I added several layers of paper, some paper doilies & printed die cuts.
Added some hand stitching around the round paper, the rest is machine stitching

I folded the ribbon over & glued it together as I attached it to the back of the paper.... time consuming but I like the way it looks.

thanks so much for taking the time to visit my blog!!

bling butterfly

I like to take beautiful embellishments & make them even better. Its simple to do just add gems!

I started with a chipboard butterfly & some bling
I have found that it is easiest to cut apart flourishes to fit your embellishment, especially if your working on something without straight edges.

Keep the gems on the clear backing & line up the flourish over your embellishment cut out the ones you need then peel & stick

I also add individual gems in spots & also use the heat set gems. Keep adding until you like the look

It takes some time but I think the end result is worth it. I know its not for everyone, but I do like the look

Thanks for stopping by!
