Hello Dear Friends! Today I am sharing my final two projects for Tresors deLuxe Etsy Shop where I had the great honor of guest designing this month!
Oh what treasure you will find if you stop in Lucy's shop and take a peek around. Gorgeous lace and florals to swoon over!

I suppose I was feeling a need to expand into a different arena of papercrafting after creating only layouts and large scale items for the last few years. If you have been following me these past couple of months I have gotten more heavily into cardmaking and tags. That's not to say I won't continue to do layouts! Of course I will! For now though I am enjoying exploring this new love of smaller art pieces.

I found HUGE tags by Ranger- this one measuring 10.5 x 5.5. I love finishing off my tags front and back. I like the idea of using them as gift card holders, cards, or to be framed as small pieces of art.
Here I used my Scraps of Elegance May kit "Yesterdays"
I used the gorgeous Prima Fairy Rhymes papers. These little fairies just beg you to cut them out. I clustered mine with tiny Petaloo flowers and dandelions cut on my Cameo. The top of my tag features the beautiful Rhinestone Centered Ivory Organza Flower.
The lace is from Lucy's shop- the Guipure lace and I gathered it up with some stitching and tea stained it. I just heated up some water in the microwave and soaked the lace in it overnight. 

The chipboard is from Gina's designs. Love the Dream word title and the dragonflies. I painted them in magical micas, inked them with distress ink then covered then in crackle. Love the effect!

This is the back of my tag. I used a glassine bag and layered some modeling paste on it. I cut the little bird and flowers out of the Prima paper. 
This bag works great to hold a gift. What a great presentation for a gift card don't you think?


I don't think I will ever get enough of these beautiful laces Lucy offers. This one is the white venice lace and I tea dyed it. On this tag I cut the lace apart and used it as a dress for my form.
The top of dress form tag uses one her florals. This one is called the Rustic Shabby Chic Corsage. I love the natural woodsy look.

My chipboard wings are from Gina's Designs. I painted the wings with Lumiere Paint. I then painted over it with Tattered Angels Glam in gold.

The back of my contains an envelope with a little tag. I tucked a little bit of tulle in there for sweetness.

I so loved working with these beauties this month. I hope you stop by Lucy's shop. You won't be sorry.

Have a good week all!
