Hey y'all! Happy New Year! 2012 is here! Woot Woot! I hope you all are having a great New Year's so far! Today is the 1st of January and that means we have a new reveal for you guys over at the Berry 71 Bleu blog. As you may already know, Marivic is the owner of Berry 71 Bleu and she makes the most gorgeous handmade tags! For this month, Marivic sent me a beautiful tag in a Parisian looking theme. I knew the moment I saw it I wanted to use it on a frame for my Mom. My mother changes out the decor' in her kitchen regularly and one month she uses a Parisian theme. I thought this would look nice displayed on the counter top. I sure hope she will like it!
Tag: Berry 71 Bleu
Patterned Paper: Fancy Pants Designs
Cardstock: The Paper Studio
Rhinestones: Studio G
Electronic Cutting Machine: Cricut Expression (Provo Craft)
Software: Cricut Gypsy
Cartridge: Summer In Paris
Frame, Floral Accents: purchased at local discount store
Adhesive: Helmar, hot glue/hot glue gun
I just adore Marivic's tags! Every little detail and embellishments she adds makes them so unique!
I added a grouping of rhinestones to the corner of the frame. I cut the 'Paris' phrase out using my Cricut and 'Summer In Paris' cartridge. I cut it out once in a black glittered cardstock and once in a cream colored patterned paper. I did a bit of cutting with my scissors to make both layers of the cut show up a bit better.
See all the yummy dimension Marivic adds with buttons, flowers, and other embellishments? I love it!
I hope you have enjoyed this project! I appreciate you taking the time to stop by my blog!
Happy New Year & Happy Scrappin'!
