Hello MLS fans. Linda here with projects created with ' Coming Home' from My Little Shoebox - a wonderful collection of luscious colors for any season of the year! This is also the month we are sharing our creations using albums and embellies from Punky Sprouts. Their albums are fun and so versatile to use!
The first project I want to share is one of the Punky Sprouts albums that I used to create a winter wall hanging.
I first glued the two pieces of this album together and painted the front white to create the backdrop for my winter scene. I cut out a shallow shadow box, used papers and stickers from the collection, a bicycle stamp from an earlier collection, and designed a fence from Starbuck stirrers. A piece of acrylic creates the 'window'. I used Flower Soft to create the look of snow. I framed the shadow box with lace and Coming Home papers, and used a Punky Sprouts doily and some parchment pieces, along with some seam binding to finish the project.
Supplies: Coming Home papers: Park Avenue and Urban Green; Cardboard Stickers; 3D Roll-Up Accents, Vintage Photo Distress and Victorian Velvet Distress Ink; seam binding, lace, MLS Strawberry Frosting Alphabet Stickers; Clear acrylic
I would also like to share with you two cards I created using the Coming Home collection.
I love pink and brown together, so I used both to create this lacy 'For You' card. Round cards are fun to do and are fairly easy. With this card I embossed the pink plaid paper from the collection and mounted it on the brown card. I added some lace and brown seam binding, together with a doily (foam dotted for dimension), and made a flower from the pink plaid lace from the Lullaby Trim Pack. I added a Prima jewel spray to the top to add some sparkle to the card.
Supplies: Brown card stock; MLS Park Avenue paper, Lullaby Trim Pack, white doily, Prima jewel spray, pink pearl brad, and Chocolate Cake mini alphabet stickers.
My second card was just plain fun to do.
I embossed two strips from the MLS/Unity co-branded stamp of trees with white opaque embossing powder, then added some banners across the center of the card for color. I inked and foam dotted some trees from the MLS cardboard Sticker set, then added some twine and some mini letters.
Supplies: MLS Coming Home papers: Soaring Above and Park Avenue; Cardboard Stickers, MLS/Unity co-branded stamp, Kiss Mini Alphabet Letters, and Twine from the Twinery.
I loved the opportunity to combine the breezy colors from the MLS Coming Home collection, and want to thank Punky Sprouts for creating such wonderful albums. Having choices like these makes scrapbooking fun and totally satisfying! I hope you enjoyed my projects, and wish each of you "happy scrapping"! Thanks for stopping by!
