Crafty Secrets and Eclectic Paperie (Shabby) blog hop

Hey everyone!!  Yay, it's finally here...
. Crafty Secrets/ Eclectic Paperie blog hop day!  I have been so excited about this.  Cant wait to see what all the girls have created!!    At the bottom of my post, I'll have links to all the eP and Crafty Secrets Design Team girls, along with links to eP and CS websites and blogs.
There are going to be some awesome prizes too!
Both EP and Crafty Secrets will be giving away prizes. I total of six prizes all together! You can find out more about the prizes on the Heartwarming Vintage and Eclectic Paperie blogs. The more DT blogs you visit and leave comments on, the more you increase your chances to win one of the 6 prizes. Winners to be announced on Monday. ( again all links at the bottom of this post)




Since we where going "shabby" with this blog hop, I thought  I'd go with a shabby layout.
I used the new Farm Chicks Clear Art Stamps and the new Farm Fresh Creative Scraps.


Loving "shabby"... roughed up , inked papers, lots of stitching, stamping , old photos and my favorite vintage images.  ( oh.. and a little Glimmer Mist spattered on for good measure)

I adore this chicken wire stamp SO much!

I used my epiphany goodies to create a dimensional embellishment ..using one of the elements on the Creative Scraps sheet.


Okay.. so I couldnt quit with these new images.    Here are some cards .. some shabby .. some not so much........but all using the same stamp set and creative scraps :)


The die cut shapes I used on these cards are from AccuCut.

 I know , I know.. I can stop using that chicken wire stamp!


I even used it on the twill on the card below. lol


I couldnt resist using some brighter colors on these. I "dig" (lol) the vibrant colors of these vintage images.
Again... about this time of year.. color.. is definatly what I need!

I didnt even begin to use all the images on this sheet of Creative Scraps..there are so many.   So plenty more for creating next week. ha     One of the things I love about Crafty Secrets images is that they are so beautiful.. they almost stand alone.  I can just dig around in my paper scraps and find colors I like with the image I'm working with  and very quickly put together a simple but cute card.


Okay... and heres one of my very favorite images on this sheet.  Oh.. it' just tickles me.



Hope you enjoyed a stroll through my projects today and travel on to the blogs below to see their beautfiul creations for this blog hop.
