Dance the Night away!

Hi there!

I am here to share with you an inspirational post which I did for the awesome Magnolia-licious Store! Shawn sent me some Maja papers from the Celebration Collection, and other beautiful goodies (which you will see here) and there are awesome! These inspired me to create a vintage gift bag with the theme Have a Ball - dance the night away! See for yourself...

I have used quite a lot of dies, lace and pieces here, and those which you can find at the Store will be listed here, further down.

I really fell in love with this couple dancing so romantically :) I'm very soft at heart, lol. And look at that awesome rose lace.. isn't it beautiful? I did not wish to use it to say the truth, but my work is to promote the Store, and to do that I need to use the products, right? :)

I also did some foamiran blue flowers, to which I added a spray of white flowers and white leaves... Did you try out doing your own flowers yet? If not, what are you waiting for? They are easy to do, a bit time consuming, but very worth it.

 In the following photo you can see another detail, the Magnolia wedding lace DooHickey die cut I added...  its intricate detail goes very well with this bag's style, and I love how it came out! I inked its edges with Antique Linen and some dashes of Walnut Stain inks to take off the stark white of the cardstock. .

Here goes the sentiment I chose to add to the bag, a "Have a Ball" ticket, which I run through my Big Shot with the Rox Stamp border die to create those holes, and then I also inked it up with the same 
distress inks. I also cut the same border on the main Celebration paper... really love the effect it gives! 

Some more details.. this time it's the bottom part of the bag - with the film strip ribbon, organza bow and vintage button. Oh how I loved doing this bag :) I think it will be very difficult to give this away :) You can notice what is written on the bottom of the paper.. Dance the night away... shall you?

Now to the list of products used on this project which you can purchase from Magnolia-licious. You will be provided with direct links, just click on the product and voila!
