{Our Nest} a Shabby Green Door Class Kit

This is one of the latest kits designed for Shabby Green Door. Their kits are meant to help bring fun fresh projects to your local scrapbook stores. (Check with your LSS about other classes they offer from Shabby Green Door as well.)

I'm loving crepe paper lately and this was a fun easy way to use it to border the heart. Just by applying adhesive to the back edges of the heart, folding a 2" width of crepe in half, and pinch pleating as you go along. A cute way to finish off a simple die cut shape.

You are probably wondering what the twigs and nest are made out of too. It's a product called Paper Ribbons that was released by Daisy Bucket Designs a few years ago. If you have any in your stash I encourage you to get it out and try this. (if it's the wrong color try glimmer misting it ;) ) it's just dampened with misted water and manipulated into the twig and nest shapes. To hold the curly cues and nest into the cupped shape, I heat set it with my embossing gun.

If you aren't lucky enough to have a LSS that will be teaching this class, you can ask them about carrying the new On the Wings of a Dream line These items should already be in stores. So if you don't see them ask your store owner about them! :) I used these items to create the background papers, stamps and fabric Snip-its.
