A Fussy Valentine -Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida

Hello friends!

Confession time.  It seems that any time I try to do shabby chic, it turns out more shabby than chic!  More of a hot mess!  But it doesn't stop me from trying - tee hee!

So I thought I'd try again.  I pulled out a bunch of Spellbinders(TM) die templates, some stamps and embellishments, and went to work.

I started with a circle card base from CTMH. Then I background stamped the entire base with a music stamp from House of Three.  I used plain white copier paper to make the rose, then splattered it with two colors of misty paint.  I really love that Rose Creations set!  And I really love the little tassels from Banner Basics Two!
I'm determined to learn to 'do' shabby chic!  I have a hard time knowing where to stop - ha!  But I think it's good to depart from your style occasionally, don't you?  

Be sure to stop by the Spellbinders Blog  this Thursday.  I made a mini-album using the newest Creative Book Pages that will be featured, complete with instructions!
