Fauxflower Add-On (and a Walgreen’s photo code)

Here’s the original Wildflower Add-On from Studio Calico:

And here’s my own Fauxflower kit:

You can see that I ended up having to go with a general feel…  And 2 of my pp subs are large scraps, not a full sheet of paper.  I also just stuck in 2 sheets of blush cardstock and will make the lace paper using my Silhouette when I get to that point.

I pulled from my vintage stash for the papers, but added a few individual pieces that I thought went with the kit, including this vintage matchbook cover, a vellum collage piece, and a vintage scripture card.

Sorry for the horrible photo.  (I made this kit while still on bed rest, and so took pics with my phone so I could upload them easily.)  I made the flowers while lying on the couch.  Just cut some circles of tulle, tissue paper, and fabric, then layered and stuck together with a rhinestone or pearl brad.  They are super cute in person.  I’ll try to get a better shot when I upload the layouts.

These are a little better…  I threw in the big white flower, skeleton leaves, and 2 chipboard phrases because I saw them, liked them, and thought they might go with the layouts I was planning on making.  I just uploaded a TON of photos to Walgreen’s.  They have a coupon code right now through tomorrow–LUCKY25–you upload 50 prints and get 25 of them for free!  Thought it was a decent enough deal, and I’ll have plenty of photos to scrap for awhile.  :-)  Have a great weekend!

Sweet Vintage Baby Afghan


My MIL gave me this today, along with a picture of my hubby playing on it as a baby. Oh for cute! I want to decorate the nursery with all vintage toys, books, etc., so this is wonderful as it is sentimental, too.


Eee, little crocheted kitties and bunnies!


But my favorite are the little elephants. :-)
