Hello everyone! Michelle, Svetlana and Hilde are back to share with you some pretty little things we created with the very romantic These Days Collection. Enjoy!
Set of Envelopes and Tags by Michelle Frisby
Materials list : P800 reunion, PP863 paper pad, PL505 pearl strip – latte, F645 mini paper blooms – honey, F649 mini paper blooms – sage, RB891 rub ons – friends, EM972 blossoms – bluebell resin flowers, CT708 collectables
Extras: coin envelopes, feathers, muslin, baubles, punches, leaves, ink
“I have a box of coin envelopes just sitting there for a very long time and wanted to use them as well as make something with tags. So I’ve combined the two. I’ve used some of the fabulous friends rub ons from Kaisercraft, decorated the tags and the envelopes with ‘These Days’ collection from Kaisercraft.
I have made this beyond the page with the idea of sending individual wee envelopes to a friend, so that she can celebrate her birthday, not just on one day, but for the whole month with the idea being, she gets to open one wee treasure every few days throughout her birthday month … just randomly. She is not going to expect it, it’s just going to arrive, and it will be a little something to brighten her day.
I have punched the left hand side of each envelope and bound them together with twine so it’s all held together like an album, quite bulky, but I think more than a little bit on the cute side.

“This pretty little thing is just an ornament that one can sit on a dressing table or maybe on a shelf in a scrapbooking room. The size of this dress form doesn’t allow for a lot of embellishments but nevertheless I played a little with some layers of distressing ink, glimmer mist and different stamp designs. I cut out flowers from one of the papers in the paper pad and layered it on top of each other, setting the top flowers on some foam tape.”

” I love to turn notebooks into journals. When I finish it, I showcase it on a shelf in my room for a time. I love the romantic touch with this collection. I think I will use it as a diary or something. “
