Dress form hair clip hanger and a card for a new baby

I've put both of these together very quickly but loved how they turn out. I saw a video of someone one YouTube did the dress form hanging it so I had to do my own. I cut the dress out of the Artise cartridge by CTMH and I loved it. I covered the front and back with papers except for the back I places my papers upside down to cut. I learned that the hard way from making the onsie mini. Anyhow so I went and and embellished but didn't want to over do because I will be adding more of my little girls hair clips on there. The card for a sweet lil baby girl. Thanks for looking

A little old a little new vanity

My husband has been wanting to get me a nice vanity for a long time but we have been holding off for the right one. So here it is finally. We found this precious thing at an antique mall.

It turned out quite nice. We still need to look for a mirror but just to excited to share with you guys.

My first altered frame

I love how it turned out. I got this frame from a Craft warehouse sale and I painted it with gold paint and just added laces. This was inspired by Suzie from my FB group mixed media vintage. the crochet flower was done by me and then I backed it with some laces. The second one I did the same style just a tad bit different. Having a blast with these, will definitely be looking for more frames soon.

Cards and girls

I've been trying to do at least one card a day, but I've been slacking. So last night I decided to stay up and do some of the cards. So here they are. It seems like I'm stuck on one style. I need to change them up a bit. I

More and more cards

I have found a local store that would take my stuff for consignment so I'll be making stuff like crazy. The easiest for me now are cards so here are a few so far. The happy birthday card was for a 3 year old.

A card for Sylvie

My crafty friend wanted me to make a card for her. So this is what I came up with. It's our favorite color. I used the oval cut out from elegant edges cricut cartridge and papers from the Mariposa DCWV stack.
