We are pleased to have Teresa Hall on our Design Team this year and already she has proven that she is a stunning paper crafter and designer. Her work is a blend of shabby chic beauty and vintage flair. Here is what she has dreamed up this month!


Potion Bottle was altered using Gecko Galz Love Potion No.9 Digital Label, Heart Stamp, and Love Ticket.
I first colored the labels with a blue marker, and  pretty blue stickles.
 I  applied a blue crochet lace adhesive trim, to frame the Love Potion No 9 Label, and set it aside for the glitter to dry.
A couple pieces of mesh ribbon material was applied using Mod Podge to adhere it to front & back of bottle. Any excess was cut off.
 A small strip of lace was added, around bottles center.   
While waiting for everything dry..
I embellished the cork lid, applying Mod Podge  to adhere a tiny piece of netting, lace trim, and crochet piece,and topping it off with a blue paper rose using a hot glue gun.

I threaded a metal heart through beige tulle and the mesh ribbon material & tied around the bottles neck. Adding a bit of the adhesive blue trim to that. Adorning neck of bottle with another rose and adding a 2" stick pin.

Finishing the front with a pink paper rose & love ticket!

The back of bottle was made,using the digital heart stamp,(colored & glittered) a small piece of crochet, blue rose, clear button, and cut pearl piece trim to adorn & finish the Love potion No 9!
