Welcome to My Lil Shop at The PaperHaus Magazine

Hello there everyone! Not too long ago I shared, with much excitement, the very happy news of me having snagged a spot at the very new, and extensive, and exciting PaperHaus Magazine! 

With today being my debut appearance on the Design Team, I would like to share a special project, one that I tried making out of my comfort zone, and one that I spent much of my time and love creating. So without further ado, "Welcome to my Lil Vintage Shop" lovely peeps! This project is sooo ideal for a lil girl's room (and I'm going to do just that, put it as a deco piece in my dd's room :))

Thank you PaperHaus for this wonderful opportunity. I am truly looking forward to a creative year together! :) and readers, please drop by the blog to check out the super awesome projects by the DT! I assure you, you'll be inspired! ;)

3) Create window by stamping on transparency and adhere to the frame
4) Stamp on the outside and inside using script stamp (to give a vintage feel, also makes it look like moss on the building doesnt it *lol*)
5) Punch out a strip of patterned paper and make folds and adhere to create faux roof 
6) Embellish inner and outer parts of the 'shop' to your hearts' desire with resin embellishments and vintage finds
