~* Shabby Chic Mason Jar Hanging Using Tilda Country Escape Paper Stack *~

Aloha!
I created this mason jar wall hanging starting off with a mason jar chipboard diecut, some Tilda Country Escape paper stack diecuts, and a cute heart hanger from this kit that I purchased from amadoreros on YouTube.  I then embellished away with goodies in my stash.  I distressed the edges of the mason jar and the hanger with gesso.  I tied some crochet lace in a bow on the hanger.  I hope to include some family photos on this wall hanging soon!
I used some corrugated cardstock to make the lip of the jar and I distressed it with gesso.  I used some crochet trim and lace and trinket pearls around it and I knotted the trinket pearls and added a cluster of flowers.  I added some fabric Thickers to spell out "Loves".  The big cluster of flowers has some vintage wedding spray, a stickpin I made, a flower bud spray, a bunch of Wild Orchid Crafts roses, a frosted flower cabochon, vintage lace, delicate lace, and an applique.  I added two blue birdies that were diecuts in the paper collection and I also added a cute heart pearl button.
On the "back," I did the same thing with the corrugated cardstock.  I added a "I heart you" wood piece from Prima that I distressed with gesso.  I cut apart a big doilie from Daiso from my friend Joanne.  I added a frame that I fussy-cut from the paper stack.  I added a cameo that I distressed with gesso and some Wild Orchid Crafts roses.  I made a cluster of Wild Orchid Crafts roses and rosebuds, and a doodad.  Lastly, I added three pearl cabochons from Wild Orchid Crafts at the bottom left corner.

~* Shabby Chic Upcycled Treat Box *~

Aloha!
Hope you are all having a wonderful summer :)!  Things are just too busy over here, hehe.  I saw this kraft treat box in the kitchen at work and once the candies were gone, I knew I wanted to alter it!
I made a shabby chic treat box for my grandmother's birthday!  I hope to fill it with some sweets!
I used the DCWV Primrose Stack from my friend Vicki as well as tons of laces, rosettes, and flowers from Lavish Laces on Etsy; some Hobby Lobby pearl trims and trims; my fave May Arts laces, a doilie; some cabochons from Em's Emporium; some fabric leaves; some Prima flowers; some pearls; some halfback pearls and cabochons from Wild Orchid Crafts; a button; and some laces in my stash.
I'm entering this project into the following:
