Madge's Scrappin' Lounge

My friend, Madge, decided to try her hand at creating and selling an embellishment kit.  She got a small group of test dummies (like me!) to go in on her first round.  Wow, this is one time, I was SO happy to be a test dummy.  The first kit came with all sorts of goodies - banners, tags, labels, die cut shapes, buttons, twine, eek!  Fun!  What's really cool is that I would probably not have picked out 1 or 2 of these items - before - so it was super fun to try new things.  

This first one includes from the kit:  a die cut label, a banner.  The kit came with some yummy twine, but I used Timeless Twine from my stock (since I am a Twine-ista, ya know!)  I added the cardstock, ribbon and the stamping which is from "Moon Beams & Heart Strings," Unity Stamp Company.  I colored with moons with a Wink of Stella Glitter pen in Silver and the stars with a Copic glitter pen in gold.  The sentiment is embossed with Ranger Embossing Pearl in Pale Gold.

The second card I made for my FIL's birthday and includes from the kit: button and die-cut label.  The other items are paper from my stash and from a Halloween paper kit, 3 Girl JAM burlap ribbon and "Everything More" from Unity Stamp Company.

And I have oodles of other new stuff to play with....  Special thanks to my friend and DT sistah, Madge, for including me in her trial run.  And thank YOU for checking out my post today.
