Live & Love Crafts

This week at Live and Love Crafts the ladies have been playing with the Melissa Frances resin pieces.  They are super gorgeous and what an amazing collection available at LLC and even some new stuff!!  

I thought about one of the biggest resin pieces I have and immediately went to the little cherubs and found a matching vintage image from Pion Design's Gramma's Attic "Christmas Time".  I was trying to avoid covering up that oooooooooh so gorgeous "Alençon" lace.   I've also got some jute layered under the Madame de Pompadour lace for texture.

I don't normally use a lot of foilage on my bouquets and was determined to start when I saw some new dies from Noor Design.  I asked my teamie to send some over since I wasn't sure where to find them and no problem!  Thanks Tracy!!  I love them!  Once you add some gorgeous Kort and Godt rolled flowers, Melissa Frances pearls and some Magnolia vintage berries....WELL!  OH MA GOSH!  I might have to try this a few more times.  I LIKE IT UH-LOT!  (Jim Carey anybody? hee hee)

I managed to sneak in another resin piece with SANTA!  Maybe more appropriately "Father Christmas".  hee hee  I cut the image from a tag from the Maja Design "It's Christmas Time" collection.  Actually same with the numbers too.  I added a little shabby chic ribbon, flower and VOILA!

Here you see some of those oh so pretty Wild Orchid Crafts flowers that LLC now carries.  Love them hip rosebuds and I don't use them much but I might start.  They sure finish off a bouquet rather nicely don't you think?

So that's what I have to show you for this week.  If you haven't had a chance yet, I have to tell you, it's a must see at LLC's inspiration blog this week.  Oh who am I kidding it always is!!  ha ha ha!! 

OH AND also I have to tell you to check out the new pretties that are in stock.  Just click on NEW/Restocked.  There are some wonderful things there.  ENABLER ALERT!

Thanks for stopping by this week.  I love sharing with you guys and hopefully inspire you as well.  Have a great weekend and HAPPY CRAFTING!
