Two Looks

July 5, 2008 at 3:58 am (Collections, Hippy Chic, Melissa, paper fashions fancy, Party)

Two variations on a theme, pretty and Bohemian.  Either would work perfectly  at a summer festival, on a cruise, or as dressy work-wear. 

I’ve got more paper fahions fancy items to post but I just had to get something up before we left on our Summer trip!  I’m loving paper fashions fancy!  Mel

Exciting News!

June 22, 2008 at 2:03 am (Melissa, News, Paper fashions)

I just found out today that Klutz has published a sequel to the wonderful Paper Fashions!  It’s called Paper Fasions Fancy.  I saw it in a gift shop then ordered it on Amazon today so I’ll be waiting eagerly by the door for the UPS man to deliver it.  Maybe there will be a new flurry of postings of fashions – this time with bling!  Sharpen your scissors!  Mel

Elegant Afternoon Wedding

November 15, 2007 at 2:14 pm (Cards, Classy, Formal, Melissa, Paper fashions, Semi-Formal)

Stylish and relaxed. The perfect dress for an elegant west coast afternoon ceremony. The delicate overlay and underlay of the sensuous silk chiffon create a beautiful flowing and soft dress for today’s modern yet romantic bride. The clean lines and elegant silhouette are Hepburnesque giving the bride timeless appeal. She will look as radiant and stylish today as she will when she wears this at her 50th wedding anniversary – truly a treasure.

Layered Chic

Layer a sleek top with luxurious quilted jacket add a sexy mini jean skirt and what do you have?  Why a non-stop high fashion outfit that takes you from “casual Friday” to “dinner and a movie” while turning heads the whole way through!  Stunning.

 Aunt Chirssy, the jacket is from the paper pack I got for my birthday!  The were a bunch of great emobssed papers in there thank you!  I’ve been snipping away the last week or so, but I just decided to do one big post.  I love seeing all these new ideas thanks to more bloggers!  Keep it up ladies.  Love Mel.

Fresh, sophiscated, and colourful.  This dress is not for the meek with it’s bright bold two pattern design.  You’ll dress to impress at your next shower, dinner party or fancy date!  You can’t go wrong with a purse and shoes to match!

Signs of Spring

Lovely in lavender!  This dainty and simply feminine outfit will bring a cheery spring lightness to any event whether it’s cold outside or the blazing heat of summer.  The flowing patterned skirt is nicely complimented by the lavender blouse, which is anything but boring with trim emblisments!

Note Cards

December 2, 2006 at 5:51 pm (Cards, Classy, Collections, Melissa)

I bought a box of blank note cards and made a nice gift by adding coordinating outfits on each one.  The picture didn’t turn out too well because the cream and green are not too contrasty but in real life they look better.  It was fun to try to make 6 different outfits and limiting myslef to just two papers.  I’m getting better at the hangers too!  Click on the picture below to link to the whole file it was too big for the space here.

Pilgrim Style

By Melissa 

Puritan yet chic with delicate sheer ruffle, asymetrical stitching, and a dramatic collar.  Celebrate Thankgiving with this tongue-in-cheek tribute to that mythical first Thanksgiving dinner.

Michelle inspired me to start thinking about holidays with her last post.  I’m pretty proud of tying an outfit into a thankgiving card – I realise now that there are no limits to the occasions that can be celebrated with paper fashion cards!

This stunning dress will make you feel like the most beautiful woman as you walk the stage as a Miss America hopeful.  A beauty pageant demands something extra special, and adorned with rhinestones in a graceful comet motif you’re ready! Go girl! Reach for the stars!

 Michelle sent me a delightful little pack of rhinestones in the mail and inspired me to make a pageant dress!  Thanks Michelle!!
