Vintage Velvet

I am in love with these vintage velvet flowers! They are so versatile! I recently did a scrapbook page using a red vintage velvet flower and I paired it with a paper flower. The paper flower was ho-hum, but once I added the Creative Charms vintage velvet flower it really sprung to life.

Here's a close up of the vintage velvet in action:

They come in 6 luxurious colors:

Also used in this layout are the Creative Charms Gem Stickers in Black. I used them right at the top above the yellow background flower. They are "Gradient" and come in sizes of 6, 5 and 3 mm. You get 76 gems!! Love these!!

Quick & Easy Spring BookMark

It's 5 pm and I needed to catch the 6:30 FedEx guy for a express package to my family oversea. I thought I could not send just a letter and should put some photos of my daughter too. Another thought followed: I could not just put a photo in the envelope and that's no presentation. So I went thru my stashes of photos frames and 30 minutes later I could not find a right sized frame. Thus, I dig in my scrapbooking stash and there is a solution.
I made this quick & easy spring bookmark with our new min Dream Garden sparkled butterfly and Countryside butterfly and some bling. The embellishment itself is so intricate and elaborate that I could get away with zero papercraft techniques.

It's so quick that I could make 8 of them. That will be enough for my realtives who all adored and spoiled my 4 year old daughter during our visit last year.
If you are short on time for a quick & easy gift, ... try this one. Did I mention I have fun playing too?

What's New!

Creative Charms has been very busy behind the scenes. We've added so many new products to our line of embellishments.

One of my favorites (and believe me I have many!), are these Blooming Garden felt stickers and brads. They also come in pink! So cute. They are part of our Spring Bouquet line.

Another one of my favorites, also a part of Creative Charms Spring Bouquet line, are these fancy felt flowers. Aren't they gorgeous???

I've paired up these great embellishments with some fun and funky paper to create this layout:
