Gorgeous Layout and Altered Bag

Hi, MBT Fans!
We've got two new impressive projects for you today from MBT designers Kelly Peters and  Misty Busby. Misty brings us a delightful scrapbook layout that she did for a swap. You'll love the darling colors and florals she used! And have you ever used gift bag and wished there was a way to make it less plain and boring and more appealing? Kelly has done just that! Imagine giving a gift in a bag like this! Or better yet, imagine receiving a gift in a bag like this! The bag itself is so beautiful that it truly is a gift itself. Just take a look:


Satin Pearl Flowers
Black Crocheted lace
Acrylic Bell Flowers
Paste Flowers with Satin Center
Wheat Sprays
Daisy Pearl Trim
Medium Mulberry Flowers
Mulberry Daisies in Brown
Prima Engravers Paper Collection

And here is Misty's Project:

Mixed Media Grow Layout

It has been a long time since I have done a layout, but I joined a swap over at Creating the Crafty Life where we had to make a 12x12 layout with photo mats that needed access to have a photo added by your partner. So that was just a little challenging to me. So although it looks like you don't have access to the full photo mat, you do. I glued everything to the trim, and where they overlap its not adhered down there, so you can just slide in a photo. I used tons of gorgeous MB's Treasurista treasures, like all the flowers, wheat sprays, candy gem sprays, lace and trim, and of course the gorgeous Secret Garden paper collection that i'm so in love with. I did do some super fun mixed media touches to it with Starburst Sprays from Lindy Stamp Gang and used modeling paste with the lattice template from Prima. I hope that you like it and so does my partner Rosa :) 

Full Supply list is below!
