I am so thrilled to be bringing you this project. This month's theme is Summer and I wanted to share these beautiful Bouquets, Garter, Boutonnieres and Corsages  I created for a wedding using some of the products from Gone Artsy... I used Calla Lilies, Lily of the Valley, English Ivy and Wire Stem Crystal Accents in the bouquets. The Boutonnieres and Wrist Corsages were also made with Calla Lilies. I used buckles with flat back pearls to accent the Boutonnieres and Corsages along with satin and sheer ribbon. I used the GORGEOUS White Ostrich Feather Trim to accent with. I created the bouquets using the Straight Handle Bouquet Holders  and wrapped the center of the handles with the Silver Toned Diamond Wrap Mesh Bling


For the garter I made it using the popular Ivory Crochet Ruffle Stretch Lace along with the beautiful White Ostrich Feather Trim and a stunning 15mm WHITE Rose and Rhinestone Embellishments (these come in a set of 2). The dangle pieces are left overs from the 
***The black lace trim is also a product from Gone Artsy, but not currently available.

Today I want to share a handmade Birdcage Veil. Very traditional during the 50's era.... and I love the 50's!!! Here I used the cool mesh that I saved. It had those flat clear pebbles in it. I attached the beautiful Long Floral Applique to the edge and allowed some to dangle 
of the end... so pretty! Next I used the the stunning Vintage Style Rhinestone and Metal Embellishment. This piece is so gorgeous and the price is AMAZING!!!! Lastly to the other side I added another fabulous piece of bling from Gone Artsy... the Scalloped Five Petal Pearl and Rhinestone Flower Embellishment. So easy and with these gorgeous products from Gone Artsy well you can't go wrong!

Helloooooooo everyone...
today I have created a stunning, vintage style book mark using some of the gorgeous products from Gone Artsy... these make wonderful gifts especially for those friends who love to read!
I of course used one of my favorite products on this... the Ivory Crochet Ruffle Stretch Lace. Next I ran a piece of the oh so cute Dainty Vintage English Trim w/Blue Roses down the middle and just hit each rose with a drop of hot glue. Using a jewelry finding kit to finish off the ends I next used the beautiful Large Cameo Charm to give it that extra special touch!!!

**NOTE- I made this approximately 12 inches in length... but you can do them even shorter and have an array of sizes to work with depending the size of reading material :)

Hello Crafty friends...
This month we are doing traditional wedding ideas for the DIY Bride!!!
Here I have done an ADVICE BOX for the guests to leave heartfelt advice for the Bride and Groom.

I used a paper mache wine box to alter. I gessoed the entire box and wrapped it with some very cool flocked netting. I created a beautiful fabric flower using the Ivory Crochet Ruffle Stretch LaceChiffon Flower TrimDusty Pink 4 Petal Flower Lace and finished it off with a beautiful Tri-Color Faux Pearl Flower for the center!!!

I wrapped the box with the NEW Long Floral Applique and the NEW Fan Dangle Lace... added some pearl strands and wrapped the bottom edges with some vintage satin ribbon. One side I added the stunning Golden Peach Glass Rhinestone Bling.

To the top I used one of the gorgeous brooches from the 5 Piece Mixed Brooches to use as a knob to lift the lid off. Then using some scrabble tiles I added ADVICE and gessoed each tile some to give a shabby look to them!

Its Military Theme this month at Gone Artsy...
and in honor of our fallen soldiers I have created this shabby style flag. I love it cause it's so Americana. This is a total Pinterest idea, but I loved it so much I wanted to do my take on one using the beautiful laces and trims from Gone Artsy. I must say... this is also a great way to use up scrap pieces too. There are several on Pinterest that gave me the inspiration to do this. Even the hanger is scrap... lol! I cut the bottom section from it to make a hanger for another project and so I just kept bending this till I got the desired look I wanted.

Then away I went adding laces from the Gone Artsy Shop, ribbons from my stash, the wonderful Seam Binding from the shop. I even cut sections of the White Floral Embroidered Lace to make the "stars". I have also included sections of the NEW TRIMS that you will see being introduced all month long!

I added some fun charms, used some scrap denim and then highlighted areas with gesso. I also added gesso to the hanger to shabby it up some too.

Its Military Theme this month at Gone Artsy... and as we honor those who have fallen, we also want to honor those in the military who will be tie'ing the knot.

I have created a colorful bouquet in our nations colors of roses using the straight handle bouquet holder. I added in some white tulle and some beaded accents.

Next I wrapped the handle with the 3.9 inch Scalloped Doily and added the beautiful Square Rhinestone Metal Embellishment.

I wrapped the underneath with left over mesh from one of the new beautiful wide laces... that will be out soon in the store. The gorgeous dangle lace you see will also be out this month... so be on the lookout!!

The lovely pearl and rhinestone heart metal embellishment I added to the bouquet for a nice touch is also new to the shop... another gorgeous piece to be looking for!!!
