Pretty in Pink - 3 Pink Themed Projects
By Mistra Hoolahan

True Friendship

Hi everyone!  Today I have 3 project to share that use the same flowers, trims and papers, I loved the colours so much when I created the layout that I kept going until I had used every bit of them!

I have used one of  my favourite Lace Trims as an accent under a punched border strip...

All the pink blooms I could gather!  I have used Primula's, Heirloom
 Flowers and Silk with Swarovski Flowers.

I've also trimmed some of the Silver Diamante Trim into single elements to use as blingy accents, and tied some of the gorgeous Polka Dot Organza into a bow to pop in among my flower bouquet.


Family First Bird House

I had a wonderful collection of Pink flowers left on my desk, so thought I'd
 create a cute little OTP Bird House with them.

This time I have used one of the PinCushion Flowers as well and popped a Primula in the centre.  I carefully removed the beaded centre so the Primula would sit flat.  The cute centre will create a nice embie on it's own so I've put that away for later.

I trimmed some of the Lace to create a little 'eave' border on the house.
This lace is really versatile and if trimmed can hold it's shape.

Finally I finished the Bird House off with another Polka Dot Organza bow.  This organza is so soft and delicate, it adds that sweet gentleness to girly work!


Take Delight - Card

I created this little card while I was on a roll... using the last of the Lace Trim I had, some sweet soft pink Pearl Trim and more Silk Flowers with Swarovski Crystals.

The Swarovski Crystals really add that perfect sparkle to a project.
