Handmade Matchbook with Stick pins

I hate it when i have no Mojo. I have to work this morning but i'm barely functioning  lol
I was able to get all of my cleaning done yesterday and cooked a nice meal for the family. I still need to can tomatoes and go to my sons football game tomorrow. How will i get it all done? If there is a will there is a way, right?
 All of this project is handmade including the embellishment on the front.


I used my Cameo Silhouette to create the matchbook in pink Cardstock.  I used small white brads to hold it together. I made handmade Stick pins and placed inside. The Small doily is a Spellbinders die, Snowflake glitter die cut, lace trim, Silver bottle Cap, 1" Circle punch, Vintage Bottle cap Sticker by Spare Parts and flower buds from my stash.

Handmade Shabby Chic Flowers

Why Yes, i decided to hand make these awesome flowers.  I  found some lace fabric at Walmart in the clearance bin and thought that i could use that and yes the price was right. I started by cutting off strips of the lace and hand stitching one of the long sides and then pulling tight to create a flower base. I've had tulle in my stash forever so i grabbed that out and followed a tutorial on youtube on making tulle flowers. You just never know what i'll be making next. These were fun!

Yep, More Embellishments

Hi Friends, I just love making my own embellishments.  My BFF and i were shopping at Michaels and we found these awesome metal clothes pins. We new that we had to have them. We had no idea what we were going to do with them but we NEEDED them. lol. You know how that goes and they were on clearance so then it became a MUST HAVE.
I decided to get mine out the other day and work with them.  I found my Frantage embossing powder and decided to emboss them up with it.  I loved the results! Then, of course, you have to put something on them so i got our my metal pieces and embossed them to add to the front.
