Pretty, Patriotic & Paper Issues!

I have some super exciting news to share with you today! I am officially on the Creative Team over at Paper Issues! I am so excited to be working with a huge group of talented girls. :) To celebrate, Paper Issues is having a 30% off sale on all their scrapping goodies. Be sure to check it out, you will be glad you did! I just went on a little shopping spree myself. :) For all the details, please visit Paper Issues.

Speaking of Paper Issues, they always host themed parties for me & you to link up and share our paper projects & creations. Right now, the party is Red, White & Blue! Definitely link up some of your 4th of July creations, I know lots of you out there are making them as we speak! It is lots of fun, you should join in!

As for my pretty/patriotic creation, I have to give full credit to the talented Michelle Jackson over at Vintage Street Market. She shared this project on the Vintage Street Market Blog back in May, and I knew I wanted to make one like it. It is a wreath made out of a vintage slide tray as the base. Isn't it genius? Since I went so cuckoo over it, I roped my mom, sister, aunt & cousins in and we had a party creating these! We had a great time reminiscing, crafting and we all walked away with one of these pretties! To see the tutorial on this fabulous creation, here it is...Patriotic Wreath.

I hope you are enjoying the summer! Happy Independence Day, and stay safe!

Oh my gosh, that slide tray is transporting me back to college and the hudreds of art history lectures I sat through, in the dark with slides clicking through. To hear them called 'vintage' mades me shudder LOL I do love the wreath!!
