Paper Secrets Vintage challenge

I've joined in on the Vintage challenge for this month over at Paper Secrets  and designed a little wall hanging.  I have a great love for vintage these days so this was such a fun challenge.  The challenge was to use 5 different vintage items from a list of 10. I used a key, lace, butterflies, pearls, flowers, and a vintage image.

DP: Prima "Romantique"
Flowers and lace: Wild Orchid Crafts
Butterfly: Martha Stewart Punch
Key: K&Company
Stamped sentiment: CTMH
Chipboard frame, vintage image and seam binding from my stash..


I finally found a moment to finish up the SFYTT over at I heart 2 stamp blog.  Its a fun sketch this month! 

DP, diecuts, butterflies: Colorbok
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts

Another week over at Paper Secrets and I've made it through week 3, lol!  Here is this weeks sketch:

I have used Fancy Pants All Fall line for this layout, I love the colors!  Rubons also from the same line and I added some rhinestones to each of the flowers to bling it up a bit. Along with the sketch we had to include 4 different embellishments from a list..I used rubons, staples, bling, edge punch and stitching for my technique.   Now bring on week 4..woohoo!

SYAO week 2...and a little treatbox

Happy Valentines Day!  We have a sick little one in the house, the stomach bug caught up with him and hubby and I spent all night on the couch taking care of him. Poor little guy.  But this afternoon he was feeling a little better so I managed to get my week 2 sketch finished up for SYAO2 over at Paper Secrets .  Also I wanted to show you a little Chocolate treat box  made for a design project over at Scrapbook Place Challenge Blog. So lets get started.  Here is this weeks sketch and my take on it:

And a little close up..I just love those tickets and the wooden buttons!!
Supplies:  Colorbok adhesive fabric, cardstock stickers, and clear sticker phrases
Roses: Wild Orchid Crafts
Flourish and wooden buttons: Prima
vintage note tape: Tim Holtz
Ribbon: my stash

And now for my little Chocolate son gave this to his teacher for Valentine's Day filled with little Ghiradelli squares..yumm! 
Hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day with those you love..I'm off to throw some steaks on the grill.   Hugs,T

SYAO week 1

Week one is behind me..woohoo!  We had a fun sketch this week over at Paper Secrets but I had to put a little thought into it to pull it throwing this one together.  I picked a few pictures from our 2010 trip to the Smokies for Christmas, just goes to show how far I am behind in getting my pictures all scrapped.. :)  So here is the sketch for this week, we were to also choose 3 elements and 1 technique from a list. I chose Glimmer Misting for my technique, and staples, twine, chipboard, and rubons for my elements:

And here is what I came up with for the sketch:
