Hi friends! Linsey with you today sharing my latest project, a home décor piece to display throughout the Fall and Thanksgiving season! I hope you enjoy! 

The Vintage Blessings collection is so beautiful and versatile! It is absolutely perfect for this time of year, as it evokes a sense of warmth, gratitude, family and home. I wanted to showcase the many different pieces of this lovely collection and found a way to do so with this vintage-style 3D shadowbox. It is filled to the brim with some of my favorites things, like the rose pattern tea set, yummy pumpkin pie and sweet birdie perched atop a tree branch. The 4x4 element "so very blessed" was chosen to center the piece because it simply says it all. 

A delicate white doily, pretty ribbons and mulberry flowers were added and they all coordinated beautifully with the papers, die cuts and stickers from this collection. A few pops of black achieved with clear stickers completes the display. 

 

And that's all for me! Thank you so much for stopping by and allowing me to share my vintage blessings shadowbox with you! I hope you found a bit of inspiration in it! Have a great day and happy crafting!

Hi friends! Linsey here today sharing some spooktacularly festive treat ideas for Halloween! The Spellbound Simple Set is just perfect for all kinds of crafty desires this Halloween! In addition to treat holders and decorations, this set will be your go-to collection to preserve you Halloween photos and turn them into beautiful and classy Halloween scrapbook layouts! Spellbound has a touch of elegance and sophistication, which makes it great for older teen and adult Halloween festivities too!

 

 

The 3x4 Journaling Card Elements were used to decorate the front of each treat bag and some of the cool stickers from the 6x12 Sticker sheet were added as well. A pretty satin ribbon slider was tied around each bag and a few sequins for a sparkly finishing touch.

 

 

Each treat bag holds a decorated tube filled with a special concoction from the mad scientists lab...Mwahahahaha! 

 

 

Thanks so much for visiting today! I hope you've enjoyed my Spellbound treat ensemble and feel inspired to have some spooky crafty fun of your own with this great Simple Set collection!

Hello friends! Linsey here today and I'm so happy to be sharing my latest home décor project with you! I've used the new Beautiful collection to create some pretty wall art, desk organization and altered clipboard pieces. This is one of those collections that becomes a staple in your crafting because it is so versatile and just like its name says, so beautiful. I really enjoyed creating this ensemble and I hope you like it too!

 

 

I love how easy it is to create shabby-chic sophistication with this collection. It has lovely pastel shades of pink and green, mixed with pops of black and gold. Floral, polka dots, stripes...this one has it all and I'm absolutely enamored with it. As you can see, it's a breeze making beautiful wall art with this collection. Just pick your papers, fit into pretty frames--done! There is so much gorgeousness going on, my only issue was trying to narrow down which papers to use since I love them all.

 

 

I had never altered a clipboard before and I think it might be my new favorite! It is almost too easy and once again, these papers are the star of the show! It's fun to get creative with clipboards, like adding a row of scrumptious mulberry flowers or delicate lace along the top. The Beautiful Combo Stickers are perfect for decorating and adding even more charm to any piece. 

 

 

I wanted a few organizational items for my writing desk, so I made a mini mason jar cubby trio, which is great for storing pens, small die cuts and chipboard, lace trims, and other small embellishments. I also covered a vanilla candle with pretty patterned paper and an inspiring die cut. The candle was beyond easy to spruce up and would make a great little gift as well. I see myself doing plenty more of them. 

 

 

Another very easy and inexpensive way to make desktop organization is by using food cardboard boxes, like cereal boxes. Simply cut it, cover it and decorate to your hearts content. Here, I made a small holder for my 4x6 sticker sheets.

 

 

The designs in the 6x8 Paper Pad are too beautiful to pass up. A few of them were born to be framed and that's exactly what came of them. A vintage mint typewriter with black/white florals and pink marble--yes, please! Here's a closer look....

 

 

This sweet vintage bicycle with a basket full of flowers was a no brainer--it had to be framed and displayed. Add a bit more interest and personality to a framed piece with little embellishments, like enamel dots and mini flowers. Extra details always make something look even more special and unique. 

 

 

And that's all for me! I hope you've enjoyed my showcase featuring the Beautiful collection and feel inspired to create some of your own DIY home décor/organizational pieces! Thanks so much for visiting!  Happy crafting!
