The Shabby Tea Room ♥ Guest Designer ♥

This week I have the honor and pleasure of being the Guest Designer over at The Shabby Tea Room blog. What a great challenge blog!! They always have the most fun challenges and awesome prizes! {This week's prize, is a $100 Gift Certificate to JustRite!!!} If you haven't already been there, check it out! You won't be disappointed! Trust me! {wink} Thanks again Debbie and the DT for having me! :)

What a FUN challenge this week too! It is called 1-2-3! You must use 1 ribbon, 2 buttons and 3 punches or dies on your card/project! Other than that, you can use any design, colors or style. It doesn't have to be shabby!For my card, I used 1 12" piece of Debbie's {gorgeous} seam binding ribbon to make 2 small bows, 2 buttons and 3 punches. I used a 3" Marvy Uchida circle punch to make the curvy top of the bib tag, the Martha Stewart mini Butterfly punch and the MS Scalloped Edge punch.For starters, I cut a piece of light pink cardstock on an angle with my trimmer for the base of the pocket. Then cut a slightly smaller piece of patterned paper at an angle, adhered with tacky glue (or you can use a hot glue gun too) on the bottom and left sides onto the cardstock. Then dress up as you wish! And there you have an easy peasy pocket that you can put the tag into as well as a gift card or money! I distressed and inked my edges, added some punched OA paper to the top of the pocket as well as the Little Yellow Bicycle stickers, punched butterflies, rub-on, glitter and pearls.For the bib tag, I started by tracing a 4 1/2" circle (from a cup saucer) onto my pink cardstock, then trimmed out with a pair of scallop scissors. I then took the 3" punch, and using only half of it, punched out the curve. I then distressed the edges a bit, added a piece of The Girl's Paperie paper, the seam binding bows, buttons and Little Yellow Bicycles cardstock sticker. And there you have a fun and unique way to give a card and gift all in one! Just imagine all the different shaped tags that you can use. A balloon shaped tag for a birthday, ornament shaped tag for Christmas, wedding gown shaped tag for a wedding or bridal shower, the ideas are endless! Soo fun!!So don't forget to head over to The Shabby Tea Room blog to enter the 1-2-3 challenge and for your chance to win a fabulous prize! Have fun creating!! I can't wait to see what you come up with!

And don't forget to enter my Blogaversary Giveaway above! You just might win a Cricut Cake!! Have a wonderful day!

Hi I love your work, I kept going back and back to ck out all your work. If I win the cake I'm giving it to my 17 yr old daughter. She is going to school for culinary and is interested in cake decorating. This would be a great graduation gift for her. Tammy W

Hi Melissa
I was wondering if all is OK as I noticed you haven't been around for a couple of weeks. I hope all is well with your pregnancy and your family too.
