    New Miniature Botanicals, Floral Artwork

    Filed under Bella Ayers, Flowers, French Vintage/Belle Epoque, Giveaways, Lora Mahaffey, Sale, Spring Flowers Kit

    Ah… a sweet treat today: beautiful floral artwork by TWO Design Team Members! Starting with a happy ATC tote by Lora Mahaffey (yes, I think that green plaid says “happy”).

    Beside the inspired use of the papers from the Spring Market 6×6 Paper Pad on an ATC Tote Box, I love the ATCs Lora made with the Vintage Seed Catalog Collage Sheets!

    This is such a pretty project… another good candidate for a Mother’s Day gift.

    Here’s a link to everything Lora used.

    And don’t forget to visit Lora’s blog post, as she has step-by-step photos on how to decorate the tote box!


     

    Miz Bella (Kimberly Ayers) has created such a rich, moody set of ATCs in an ATC Folder (I love the projects Bella makes with an Art Nouveau theme).

    That green floral pattern (the back side of the Cottontail Springtime Scrapbook Paper) is perfect for this theme.

    Beside the photos of the cover and inside pockets below, there’s another photo of the ATC Ticket Journal (tucked into the left pocket) down in the Giveaway section — where you can enter to win EVERYTHING Bella used!

    Here’s a link to everything in Bella’s supply list AND a link to her blog post.

    And between here and the Giveaway, don’t forget to check out the new items AND the sale and free gift both ending tomorrow night!

    Hooray for the Many Happy Hours Giveaway!

    That is the quote on one of the fairy ATCs (“I post a letter in the flowers to wish you many happy hours.”) And isn’t that ATC Ticket Journal beautiful!

    And a couple extra items not used in Bella’s project are also in the Giveaway:
    - A set of the back in stock Tiny Antique Silver Keys
