Hello everyone!!!  Stacey Young here with my very first post for the month as Guest Creative Designer. I am thrilled to be here and have had the most fun playing with these gorgeous papers. They are all so beautiful, each one with a delicate print. One thing I love to create is shabby projects, my first one today is featuring the Vintage Spring Basics Collection. I chose the blue tones out of this collection to compliment myself and my 3 gorgeous boys. We are in the midst of our Spring season now in Australia, so the weather has been just beautiful, if anything a little too hot for this time of year! Anyway here is my first creation to share.

“You Are My Reason Why”

you are my reason why

I love the butterfly paper and cut out several of them and scattered them over the page and on some of my other embellishments.  They add a pretty touch to the page.


I love to add layers upon layers to my work and just tucked extra pieces in here and there.  I distressed the edges first and then adhered with foam tape.


More of those adorable butterflies. I also distressed the edges around the whole page and even tore the paper back even further so you can see the print underneath. The papers are lovely and thick and super easy to distress!


These papers were very easy to add stamping and splashes of colour too.


The background paper I used was the 6th of March. It had a gorgeous subtle script to it and I toned the middle section down with Gesso before masking, misting and then adding my embellishments.


I used the following papers from this collection:

4th of March, 5th of March, 6th of March, 7th of March (extra special paper as it’s my eldest sons birthday), 8th of March and the 1st of April.


Other products used: Prima Marketing Flowers and Embellishments, 2 Crafty Chipboard and Hambly Screenprint along with Shimmerz paint mediums.

Thank you for visiting today, I can’t wait to share more with you!
