A Little Whimsy With The Scraps Of Elegance July Kit~

One of the things that I loved creating with my Pawpaw when I was growing up was miniatures. We would create little log cabins, fairy gardens and sweet little whimsical worlds that were bound by only our imaginations, and you will see my love of creating those secret worlds in a lot of my work. The following projects are an oversized tag pocket and a card that I created with the Scraps Of Elegance July Kit~Patricia's Memoirs and they show my love of the whimsical and miniature worlds.

I used the kit and add ons to set the scene of being outside ones doorway.

For the oversized tag, I layered on kit papers, and on the top layer, I stampled a brick pattern with a small Prima stamp from a past kit and some Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Ink,  then fussy cut one of the doorways from the paper, and added a stash Dusty Attic Door Lock that I inked with Tim Holtz Wild Honey Ink. I then fussy cut out a sweet little Vintage Image of a girl carrying a flower basket, and added her to the doorway.

At the bottom of the tag I added some Reneabouquets Crochet Lace #004, with flowers from past kits, and some Reneabouquets Pink Mini Texture Roses,  the "My Beloved" Sticker from the kit, a twine bow topped with one of the Prima Brads from the Elements Add On.

At the top of the doorway, I added more flowers, tucked in one of the Blue Fern Chipboard Windows from the kit that I inked up with some Vintage Photo Ink, fussy cut out a little bird from the kit stickers and then added on some Tiny Treasures Debutante Butterflies.

For the hang tag, I used some of the Crochet Trim from the Elements Add On, then created a bow with hand dyed seam binding and more of the crochet trim, topped it with one of the Prima Brads from the Elements Add On, and then tied on a large key from a Reneabouquets Key Trinkets Pack.

On the backside, I layered on more matching distress kit papers, and formed pockets from paper topped with Reneabouquets Crochet Lace #004. The top pocket has a little label created from the kit stickers and some of the Prima resin roses in the Elements Add On.
The bottom pocket was formed with the same paper and Crochet lace, then I added a Reneabouquets Brass Spoon Trinket, a sweet little past kit clip holding one of the Kit-Bo Bunny Noteworthy pieces.

Here you can see the tags created with the Bo Bunny Noteworthy pieces and fussy cut paper pieces from the kit and accented with the resin rose and brad pieces from the Elements Add On.

These little pieces are so perfect for journaling and small photos, and the pockets are so perfect for holding small momentos.  

For the card, I layered on distressed layers of kit papers, stamping the brick pattern, fussy cutting out the doorway and Vintage image, and layering them on with some of the same goodies that you find on the tag.

I used the "Friends" sentiment from the kit stickers on this card accented with one of the larger keys from a Reneabouquets Key Trinkets Pack.

I created another Window with another one of the little Blue Fern Chipboard windows, and added on some of the same flowers that I used on the tag.

The back side of the card is finished out in matching kit paper for a designer look.

I hope you are having a FABulous weekend!! Here is to magical, whimsical worlds and using our imaginations to create things that make us happy! Hugs ~Renea
