Shabby Chic

Did you see the badge on the side of my blog?! It's official...I'm educating for Swirlydoos! I am really so excited to have this opportunity. Stay tuned for some fantastic videos, projects, and prizes.

I have also started an Etsy store! That too is located at the sidebar. I am just getting up and running but keep checking back as I add more items.

Shabby Chic is so in right now. Admit it...we love it. The white wash, vintage, soft, and oh so romantic look has stolen our scrappy hearts. 

I am no exception to this and so I am presenting a new class series called Shabby Chic with Andie! Classes will be once a month over at the crop n shop. You can check out their facebook page here:

As my general swirly style is very 3 dimensional, I am having to seriously reign it in for these classes. Check out the first page.

Class will be May 8th from 6-8pm. All are welcome just sign up ahead of time!

I also wanted to share a page I made this last fall at a retreat. Of course I used a past swirlydoos kit. What else would I use?

 This is Liam at about 4 months old. His nickname was Sumo because he was so darn chubby!! The best part about a retreat is being able to use other people's stuff. The large stamp in the corner and the punch for the photo corners were all borrowed pieces.  This was one of my all time fav kits. Just sayin...I really love all of the different textures on this page. 

 Here I did a close up of my cluster. The flowers were from the kit but the stems were actually hand made!! I'll put a tutorial up on youtube for it.

Here is a close up of the stamp since it was difficult to see.



  1. Congrats Andie. I look forward to your tuts. I'm going to check out your etsy as well.

    Love the page. What a chubby cutie.
