Ok so I completely agree...the ____palooza term is way overused. But this so totally applies!
Two of my girlfriends have daughters graduating together and have planned a duel open house for this afternoon. The theme...shabby chic of course!! My GF recently installed a wide plank wood floor for the barn. She collected old doors from the garbage for back drops, has hanging shredded sheets, and rain barrels. I'm so excited to see the final product. For the centerpieces she asked me to make some of these little heart bags from the Cricut tags bags boxes and more. I thought it would be super cute to make some pie boxes as well. She plans to have random frames with pictures of the girls, and various antique and shabby pieces all over the tables. I was so excited to be able to make these for her.

 Sorry the light quality is so poor. I have to use my phone because my camera is on the fritz and have been way too busy during the daylight to get good photos.
All paper is by Wild Asparagus.

 The yellow flowers are from Melissa Frances and the flowers are Spellbinders blossom 1. Big thank you goes to Lisa Gregory over at Swirlydoos for the butterflies.

 The metal pieces are from the dollar store. I have been experimenting with tarnished metal. Way too much fun. 
 Can you spot the toilet paper tube? If you guessed the leaf you would be correct!! There is a tutorial over at Swirlydoos for how to make these lovely little gems.

 Sorry this one is so blurry

 Here is another metal piece. This on I covered grunge board with foil tape and used multiple colors of alcohol ink. 

This box was my favorite. I love the soft blue with the yellow and brown. The tulle is just a piece guessed it...the dollar store.

Remember scrapping is as expensive as you make it. I enjoyed sharing my creations with you. Stay scrappy.
