Shabby Chic Dress Form for All Holidays

I wanted to design this wooden Dress Form that I got from Michael's so that I can update her wardrobe for all of the Holidays. Do you remember as a little girl playing with paper dolls and changing the outfits? I do too, it was so fun changing my paper dolls clothes every day. I had this idea to create a Paper Doll Dress Form Kit just like the paper dolls I used to play with.

I traced the Wood Dress Form using light weight chipboard and created my first outfit using sequins, fabric, lace and my favorite papers by DCWV", The Lace and Linen Stack.  

My first outfit that I created is a glamourous Shabby Chic Style. I am currently working on the next outfit which will be in the Shabby Chic blues, whites and silvers. I attached my paper doll dress using the skinny round sticky dots but I am changing that out for velcro so that I can change the outfit on the Wood Dress Form. 

In this kit I have added all of the glamour embellishments that I used on my dress form so that you can create one for yourself.

MPTS First Blog Hop "Picking Flowers"

Hi Everyone welcome to "MPTS" First Blog Hop!

I found this adorable vintage print of a little girl.  The picture came in a pink frame from my local thrift store. I removed the picture from the frame and made it into a collage to hang on the wall. The back of the cardboard frame has a hanger attached. 

One of my favorite things to make is collage art using several items that can be found in most homes. Various pieces of papers, stamps of your choice, lace, vintage jewelry and of course the most important thing is Anna's gorgeous flowers. 

This was a very simple project and perfect for the neopolitan flower collection.

Shabby Chic Dress Form Hanger

I had so much fun creating this Shabby Chic Dress Form Hanger, the possibilities are endless with a wire hanger. 

I placed a crochet trim around the hanger first as my base and then added a honecomb style lace as the collar, to top that off a beautiful sequin and pearl applique that was hand tea-dyed from my wedding dress collections, I added some ruffle trim from a vintage nightgown, Tim Hotz Dress Form die cut with a thread spool and lace as the base for the center dress form.  The dress form could also stand up on its own for a creative display.

WOC Flowers, hand-made flowers and OLLVT  flowers.  The top of the hanger I added a vintage thread spool with lucsious shabby chic fibers wrapped around the thread spool, paris eiffel tower charm and fleur-de-lis charm.  

Shabby Chic Journal

I love Shabby Chic and the designs that are at Michael's Arts and Crafts in the $1 and $2 Spot, they have been so pretty lately. I found a Shabby Chic Spiral Journal and Altered it a little bit. I love adding my Vintage Rhinestone Pieces to my Designs and making Flowers out of Laces and Trims. The fluffy trim is fibers wrapped around two fingers and then glued in the middle of the lace flower. I used my favorite glue to adhere it. Fabric Tac is great in so many projects and you don't burn your fingers hehe. I hope you have a fabulous Day!

Graphic 45 Altered Dominos

I wanted to make a miniature piece of collage art using products that are sold
on http://www.artfire.com/users/oohlalavintagetreasures

Wood Dominos
Vintage Hand Tea-Dyed Lace
Vintage Wedding Applique
Miniature Rose Bouquet Burgundy
Graphic 45 "Curtain Call Collection" Eiffel Tower Image
Graphic 45 "Le' Romantique" Collection Bride Image

I wrapped the lace around and secured the dominos as a book layered the front cover with Indian Trim and Wedding Dress Applique and a small rose complete the front. Inside I edged them in Vintage Photo Distress Ink by Tim Holtz, wrinkled up the images and added Glossy Accents to give them a real vintage look. This is a great little display.

I made my first Shabby Chic Mini Album

I had so much fun creating my first Mini Album. I used the Maya Road Chipboard and Envelope Book. One $5.00 Shabby Chic Grab Bag from Ooh-La-La, Home Made Shimmer Mist, Prima, Vintage Rhinestones, Paris Images from a Calendar, Feathers and I also made some hand-made tags. The paper Line is from DCWV The Lace and Linen Stack.

What's In Your Vintage Purse Swap My Goodies I received from Theresa

What's In Your Vintage Purse Swap

Hi lovelies, 

I participated in the What's In Your Vintage Purse Swap" hosted by Bona who is LiveLoveScrap on Youtube. We had to design a purse from Michael's Arts & Crafts and alter it any way we wanted. Then we had to fill it with only ten hand-made items. I had so much fun decorating the purse and the goodies that went inside. 

My partner's name was Theresa who is Enchanted Scrapper on Youtube. My idea was to make it a storefront design so my inspiration was a jacket that I purchased from my favorite Thrift Store Goodwill and it had storefront designs all over it. I cut it out and used that design for the cover of my box.

The Recipient of the 10 Item Traveling RAK

Well everyone I thought it was only fair to send my wonderful friend and Store Partner Patti (Scrappinings YT) the Journal and 10 Scrappy Items if your interested please go check her video out she was really surprised that I picked her. You never know where this will arrive next.

I have to admit that it was really hard not to add more things in the envelope. I can't wait to see who Patti sends it to next. Please go check her out at http://www.youtube.com/user/Scrappinings.

OLLVT Travel Journal Completed

This Journal will travel all over the world and visit many lovely homes. The concept is simple when you receive this journal show us on Youtube a video of your goodies referencing OLLVT Traveling 10 Item RAK. Then you send the journal and 10 scrapbooking pretties that you want to send to the recipient of your choice and sign the book with your Youtube Name, We want this to travel about every two weeks to keep the momentum going. I hope you enjoy our idea.

This is my designer bubble envelope that I created for my mystery recipient of the OLLVT Traveling 10 RAK.

OLLVT Traveling 10 Item RAK

Hello My Lovely Friends,
Patti and I are starting a traveling RAK. Here is the skinny on it, LOL!
1. You can only put 10 items in the RAK ( 6 pattern papers will count as 1 item)
2. You have to put your name in the journal with your YT name when you receive it.
3. Make sure the journal is in the RAK you are sending
4. Do a video of the RAK you received and link it to my video (YT channel is mybedazzledtreasures) Make sure you title the video "OLLVT Traveling 10 item RAK"
Let's try to keep this RAK going! We would like to see where in the world the RAK has been.
So watch out you may get a random RAK from someone! 

Hugs to you all,
Doreen and Patti
