Hello, I am here to share with you a Design Team LO I did using the beautiful Walking in the Forest Collection. The photo is of a mannequin that I have used as a garden ornament for years. Every year I go through my closest, to find a new outfit for her. This year I also gave her one of my old purses,filled it with soil,then impatients. It is still early in the season so there is much more plant growth to happen….


Out of the walking in the Forest Collection, I used: Die Cut Letters-BS, Last Flowers- BS & The Colors of Fall-BS


I did distressed stitched layers,but on this LO I also added Corrugated paper into my layers,that I applied Decadence Glimmer Mist to….


The mannequins hair is burgundy,so that is why I choose these colors….


I also did a bit of stamping & stencil work on this LO….



I first applied rock candy crackle on to the black cardstock fuchsia branch from Scrap Fx, & when that dried I played with different shades of LuminArte green for the leaves & burgundy for the flowers.


Here are a couple projects I did for Scrap Fx using Maja Design papers…


On this LO I used Vintage Spring Basics Collection. Out of this Collection I used: 1st of April, 8th of March- BS, 7th of May- BS, 7th of April, 4th of May, 3rd of May-BS,5th of May BS, Days to Remember & some of the BS of the labels. I made this as a shower gift,so I first started by embellishing the little crocheted hat with some of my scrapbooking supplies,to match the Collection. I then took my photo’s & started to play. This LO is framed in a white shadow box,& as a gift I gave this LO & the matching little hat. Here is another LO I did for the Scrap Fx Blog using the Vintage Summer Basics Collection…


Out of the Collection I used 1915,1932-BS &1891. Here are a couple cards I made using the Vintage Spring Basics Collection….


On this card I used 7th of March, 5th of March-BS, 4th of March,7th of April, 7th of April-BS, 1st of April, Days to Remember & some of the BS’s of the labels…..


Here is another card I made,I also used this card in the shower gift. From the Vintage Spring Basics Collection I used: 1st of May, 3rd of May,7th of May BS & 1st of May BS. Thank you so much for taking the time to look…..Rachelle
