I bit the bullet and decided to participate in an Embellishments Swap this month on FB, along with this month's Pocket Letter swap here on sb.com, plus making two Pocket Letters for my Guest Designer spot on Reneabouquets. It's not like I had a lot to do, right?! Haha!
So, these are what I came up with. My swap partner loves Shabby style like me, her favorite colors being soft pinks and cream. So I made 4 of the embellies in her favorite color scheme and the others in soft colors as well.
Box 1 - I used Stamperia's Lilac Flowers to diecut the Mason jar. I had the Oval piece already cut out from a previous project that I didn't use. The cameo was from a bag of embellies I got from Walmart.
Box 2 - The wooden tag was given to me by Beth. I embossed it with Stampendous Shabby Pink embossing enamel. I used Stamperia's Dream collection for the rectangular paper and embellished it with Rose Gold Beautiful Beads from Reneabouquets as well as her sweet little butterfly and rose at the top.
Box 3 - The frame was a mold I got from a FB shop and I used Platinum Pearl liquid pearls and for some reason it ended up looking yellowish. I used Stamperia's New England paper and silver microbeads from Reneabouquets before filling it in with Mod Podge Dimensional Magic. I don't like how it faded the colors in the paper. Maybe it's getting too old. Bow and trim from Laura.
Box 4 - Large clip from Carri. Sheer ribbon, pink netting, and pearls from Laura. I used Diamond Stickles to bling it up a bit. Rose and bling center from my stash.
Box 5 - Beads from my huge stash! My very first stick pin!
Box 6 - Ahhh, my favorite! Laces from my stash and I added Vintage Rose glitter glass from now closed Gone Artsy.
Thank you Beth, Carri and Laura!
Thanks for taking a peek and I hope it gives you some inspiration!
