November DT Projects

Here are my November design team projects for MB's Treasurista zibbet store...


MBsTreasurista

The first project is some altered wood letters that spell out DREAM.  I just love this phrase as it reminds me to never give up on your dreams.  My scraproom is pink and green so I wanted something to match my room.


I used several of the products from the store including the pink 1" crystals,white lace w/light pink pleated trim,clear acrylic wheat sprays,light pink Chinese braid trim,pink acrylic flower sprays,white braided sequin trim, and pink acrylic butterfly stem.










I love how the project just came together beautifully with all of the gorgeous products from the store.


For my second project I altered one of the Michael's balsa wood boxes.  I wanted to go with the blue and brown color scheme.  The title of the box is Life's Little Treasures and that is Misty's slogan for the shop.  I thought it would be a wonderful project to send to her.


For this one I used the brown Chinese braid trim, the blue acrylic flower sprays,brown and white baker's twine, and the light blue crystal diamonds, plus some other miscellaneous trims and flowers from my stash.








This project served a dual purpose....LOL for the DT and for a blog hop I was in over the weekend....




I hope you have enjoyed my projects and I cannot wait to show you my December ones!!

Welcome to my blog and the Boo-Hoo-licious Blog Hop. I'm so glad you could join us!




There are some amazing ladies on this hop so please make sure you visit all the stops. You won't want to miss a thing.
If you are coming from Lina at Sweet Nothings Paper Co, you are right on track.


 If you just came across my blog and would like to hop along, please start over with LIZ as she is our spooktacular hostess.


Here is the lineup in case you get lost:



For my project, I decided to to a vintage kind of Halloween tag.  The idea of a witch's ball gown kept popping into my head, so that is what I went with.



I started with a blank  #8 shipping tag and I used Spiced Marmalade,Shabby Shutters and Dusty Concord Tim Holtz distress inks.  I then used Lindy's Stamp Gang Wake Me Up Before You Go Gold Starburst Stain over the whole tag.



I then stamped a clock image striking the hour of midnight for the ball.  I added a long flourish stamp from Autumn Leaves and used the Spellbinders Labels #4 smallest die to make the tag that says "Witch's Ball" .  I colored the tag with Tim Holtz Dusty Concord Distress Ink and used the Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Stain again.  



For the witch's dress, I used the Tim Holtz Sewing Room Die for the dressform in lightweight chipboard.  I embossed it with gold embossing powder and then started on the dress.  The dress was really fun to make and I even gave her a bust...Hehe...LOL  I used a black crocheted lace around the waist of her and added some rhinestone swirl bling and then some individual bling at the top of her dress.  


For the bottom of the tag, I dyed some white lace I had using the Tim Holtz Dusty Concord ink pad and then I added some black lace and silver pearl beaded trim.  



For the trims at the top of the tag, I used white seam binding and dyed them with the Spiced Marmalade and the Shabby Shutters Distress inks and added the same black lace trim from the bottom of the tag.  

I hope you have enjoyed my project!  I had a lot of fun making it for this hop!


Thank you so much for hopping by and a huge thank you to Liz at Decade Of Scrap for allowing me to be a hop stop

This is the end of the hop!  Thank you all for coming and playing!!  :)
