Shabby Chic Vintage Tag for Gina's Designs Lasercuts Design Team Project

Hi everyone, and Happy Holidays! Kim here today to share with you my Vintage Christmas Tag, featuring our new Super Extra Large Tag from Gina's Designs. Now this tag is so new, its not even available in the store until January 1st, but I was so excited to show you, I just couldn't resist creating something with it!
This tag is 10 Inches in length and 5 inches wide, so it really is Super-Sized, and it's made from a very thick, sturdy chipboard.  I was so impressed with how it held up to all my mixed media techniques.  I had so much fun making this!  I did mod podge, embossing, texture paste, painting, you name it, I did it to this tag! lol

You can see above some of the paper I mod podged onto the tag.  I used some vintage music paper, and the gorgeous angel girls are from a napkin, which I peeled apart and placed on the tag. You can also see Gina's hanging clock which is painted and embossed and peeking behind it is one of the Snowflakes from the Snowflake Set and one of the delicate doilies from the Intricate Doily Set.

Above you can see some of the stenciling I did with the texture paste and another Snowflake from the Snowflake Set.

I have used some vintage laces and seam binding from my stash to line along the bottom of the Tag, and you can see more of the Snowflakes and one of the large Open Flourish Frames from Gina's Store as well.

Here you can see a close up of the script stencil I used and also here is a good shot of another new product which will be available soon in Gina's Store, which are the Clock hands made from WOOD! I have embossed them as well and used yet another snowflake behind them with a lovely little satin flower for the center of the clock hands.

On the back of the Tag I have used some Vintage Music Paper and more Laces and Trims from my Stash.

Above here I used a pretty little wood piece from WhichCraft which says "Believe", and some lovely metal wings from Craftsupplies1.  They went so well with the vintage and shabby feel of the tag.

Here is another Close up of my favorite pieces, I really love these Snowflakes!! You can do so much with them, and it was fun to experiment with all the chipboard to give them different looks and textures.
Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I hope you will check out Gina's store, and don't forget there is some AMAZING things coming up for 2014!!

Hello Everyone, I am here today to share my latest project with you! Now that the Holiday Season is upon us, its time to get thinking of some unique gift giving ideas, and this Create Banner by Gina's Designs is definitely one of them!

It was so much fun to make this, and for someone who is creative and crafty this would make a great banner to hang in a craft room or office.

The banner itself comes with 3 parts to each piece, the back piece, the top piece and the individual letters. I have kept the banner in a lovely shabby chic style and used some antique lace, and vintage material to create the flowers you see at each end of the banner.

Below here you can see some of Gina's other pieces I have added here the Steampunk Dressform, which I painted and embossed, keeping in the same vintage colour tones.

Here you can see the letter R, which has the Fashion Cameo in the corner there, which I have altered with some homemade texture paste, paint and the background is stamped and embossed with a script stamp. You also can see a close up of the vintage doily and the antique laces at the top and sides, which are from my stash.

I have used another Fashion Cameo and perfume bottle from Gina's on the letter E, the Perfume bottle is from the Parisian Shape Set.

 The last letter in create, is this E, and again, I have used a few more pieces of the great chipboard pieces from Gina's. The Eiffel Tower you can see done in the same style as the Dressforms. With paint and embossing powder, you can really change the look of these pieces. The Fleur De Lis at the top centre here is painted white and embossed with white glitter. I have also added one of my handmade flowers, the rolled rose on the right hand side, with a little paper flower in the middle.

 Here is another of my handmade flowers, I have used some vintage muslin to create this and then added a flower to the centre and some seam binding in a beige tone. There is one of these flowers at each end of the banner
Here is a close up of one of the Fashion Cameos I altered, I really love these, they really add a vintage flair to a project.
 Below here is one of Gina's Words and Phrases 1 Set, the word Dream is covered in some texture paste and I used some distress ink around the edges and added a bit of glitter to it to make it shine.

 And finally here is another of my favorite pieces, it is the Penny Farthing, Antique Bike set, I really love these bikes they are so much fun to alter, and I have continued the same look on this with the paint and embossing powder.

I really hope you like my project today, it was a lot of fun to "create" and I am sending this off as a gift to a friend, so I am excited for her to receive it.  Thanks for stopping by!
