♥ Crafty Secrets Tussie Mussie Pin Cushion and Linky Party! ♥

It's the First Monday of the Month! And that means it's time for the Crafty Secrets DT Challenge and Linky Party! Just link up any creation using a Crafty Secrets product to the Heartwarming Vintage Blog and you could win a $50.00 Gift Certificate to the new Crafty Secrets' Crafty Vintage Girl Store! I can't wait to see what you all come up with!!

This month the DT was challenged to make something using one of the amazing Creating with Vintage CD's! I chose the Creating with Vintage Patterns CD 1. If I was told I could only create cards using this CD, I would be just fine with that! It has everything on it! Beautiful shabby vintage papers, ephemera and embellishments!

First up, I made this super FUN Tussie Mussie. But I didn't want to just stuff it with the normal flowers or candies you normally would. So I thought what about a pin cushion! It looks so pretty hanging in my craft studio filled with some of my handmade pins.

But of course, I needed to add some vintage and shabby embellies to it! Love the Lock and Key and doesn't that timepiece look real! Yup, it's some of the embellies on the CD! Love it!!

I also made this card which would be perfect for a Wedding or Anniversary. I used the 3-D Pocket that is a template on the CD. You could fill it with money, a gift card or just write a little note on the pull out card.

Love that beautiful diamond button embellishment. I added some glitter to it to really make it sparkle.

I just adore these beautiful papers!! {The stamped Congratulations is from the Crafty Secrets Cutie Cats Clear Art Stamp Set.}

Now that you've seen my DT creations, now you must check out the amazingly gorgeous creations from my Super Talented Teamies!! Oh, and don't forget to join the Linky Party too!! ;)

Adorable Tussie Mussie, and such a fun idea for it to hold your pins. The card is so pretty too and I like how you incorporated that little bit of black and white onto it.
