Burlap, Glitter, and Flowers oh my

I put this together in a Lisa Pace class yesterday. It was so much fun. I got to sit next to some of my favorite girlfriends, and play with glitter! :)

Don't you love the burlap? Messy, but adds so much right texture and color. The class used pink and silver, but I wanted to do my favorites in green, brown, and yellow. Spring! :) 

There was a tiny bit of complaining by me as I threaded the buttons. Ouch, my hands were tired. 

Inside front cover.

One of the canvas envelopes. We added doilies, burlap, and milk bottlecaps. I love the vintage look with the pop of yellow ribbon. 

I added a bit of burlap and stitched a small piece of ribbon to the back. I wish I'd stitched it onto the paper, and then just glued it on, but I actually stitched all the way through the canvas. Haha. 

Um, have I mentioned how much I LOVE these pale yellow blossoms by Prima? SIIIIIGH. I think I will go back for more. 

I finished the back of this envelope with my left over supplies. The flower is made from a brown paper lunch sack I had sitting on the floor. 

Check out Lisa Pace's blog to see what the original looked like HERE. Happy scrapping! DeeDee
