Proudly presenting Design Team Challenge Number 2

In the Creating with Details Team we were talking about spring, new beginnings, reborn and I immediately thought of a Wall Art Hanging for a New Born Baby as a project for the Design Team.
The pacifier can be switched out later with a photo of your own choosing or even with a Marie Antoinette picture if you like and used forever in another form.

To give this Wall Hanging some substance I used a white damask place mat as my substrate, and covered it with 2 of my white doilies, my own stash.
From then on the creating process took place using material from Mai Larsen's

I added to both sides of the place mat one of her beautiful embroidered beige laces which I cut in half to cover both edges. I then proceeded to use one of her very ornamental white laces to cover the cut edges of the beige one.
I centered a beige linen doily with crocheted edges on top of the white doilies and centered a beige lace frame on that doily to give the impression of a picture frame. 

The crowning of this “New Reborn, Spring, New Beginnings Wall Art Hanging, is a Pacifier tied with white tulle ribbon in the center of the lacy picture frame. Which I mentioned above can be switched out later with a picture of your choosing. The picture can even be slipped under the fabric lace frame and will stay.

At the very bottom I used a very new product, a lace Mai carries in her which is just to yummy and beautiful for words. It is so delicate and about 5 inches wide, a must have for any project you might chose.

The two bottom corners I covered with a fabric flower each in a complimentary color of the beiges and whites used in this wall hanging. I used above and below Mai's Satin Roses in ivory and made these roses appear bigger by adding some more fabric flower surroundings which I made from laces and tulles. 

The crowning top is a trim with organza flowers, lace and pearls hanging, which you can find in her store under "Beaded Lace Collar" and give's the impression of dew drops in the morning. I can't  think of anything more prettier then this trim to crown this Wall Hanging.

This shabby chic wall hanging has layer upon layer of Mai's goodies from
And finally it hangs on a ornamental Shabby Chic white hanger with clips.

You too can create something similar with Mai's trims, laces, metals and more from her shop. Please have a look at her shop and order, your order of $25.00 or more you get you 20% OFF by using this coupon code at check out MARION20.

Proudly presenting Design Team Challenge Number 1 for April 2016

I discovered at one of my Estate Sale I frequent a large book, covered in Linen, which was tattered, scratched up and just not very nice looking anymore. I wanted to see who the writer was and discovered that this was actually a box with a magnetic closure. Well “glory be” my mind was racing what I could do with this! Here was my first substrate for the Design Team challenge. 99% of the material I used is from a fabulous store called

Please take the time to check it out, if you do, you can claim a coupon for 20 % off, use coupon code MARION20 at check out of your order. Hope to see you there.

I sanded this box down , primed it and painted it a nice warm cream color, put some round feet underneath it and then came May Larson and the crafting items. Her assortment of laces, embellishments, rhinestones, fabric flowers, ah, anything you can imagining - she can provide you with for your crafting ideas and needs you have.

I started out with a piece of lace from my stash and covered the entire lid, I then used all crafts supplies from the to embellish this beautiful box. Her wide Cream Linen Lace came first at the upper part of the lid, and I then used one of her beautiful laces for the bottom part of the lid, it looked like Cathedral Windows upside down.

Now I have 3 layers of laces on the lid.
In the upper left corner I started to fastened one of her lacy beautiful fabric flowers with Pearls, looking like Spring itself had settled down on top of my lid - and to cover up the stem on the other end in the corner of that beauty, I used one of her single fabric flowers from which I removed the hair pin. I then arranged the flowers just so to please the eye and surrounded this arrangement with her Ivory satin roses, and some smaller ones from my stash to fill in the small spots. I also used Creating with details Pearly plastic flowers in which I centered a pearl.

I then topped the hole arrangement off towards the center with a pearl and rhinestone button.
On the right lower side I used a Cameo with frame from Creating with details and surrounded them with an old pearl string from my stash. I placed some little cut of lace pieces from here and there on the lid, they looked like flowers and I centered them with a single pearl. I then continued to frame the lid edge in flat back pearls from Creating with Details Store.

My eyes then wandered to the sides of this box and I found just the piece of lace from Creating with Details that would fit perfectly for the sides of this lovely box. I then continued to use flat back pearls on the edge of the bottom on the box.

Now to the back of the book box, I decided that the same lace would fit just fine and completed this Shabbyliscous, Chic, Beautimous Treasure Box.
Can be used for Wedding Card Box, Jewelry, “any kind of box you like it to be”, or just because you love it and have to have it.
Thank you for looking and sharing. Please don’t forget to check out the and make use of the coupon code MARION20.

Looking forward to see you there.
