A Shabby Chic Project and Tutorial

Hello friends!  Today I created a little tutorial over on the ODBD Blog on how I created this wood framed art piece. I used several of this month's release  as well as several older sets, including Recipe Card Lines Happy Marriage Recipe, Kind Hearts, Sentiments Collection, Sweet William Small, Love, Sewn with LoveI also used this month's ODBD Custom Recipe  & Tags Die, ODBD Custom Apron, &Tools DieThe focal point   is an accordian style file with recipe cards insdie, and I give the full tutorial on that, as well as the basic steps used to create this entire piece.  I hope you'll come over and have a look!
