"The Sewing Room" Mood Board Challenge

Hello everyone! I hope everyone of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day and were able to enjoy the Black Friday deals here at Tres Jolie! 
This project that I am sharing today is something that doesn't take a whole lot of time and is so fun to embellish. First I used the November Scrapbook Kit from Tres Jolie and includes the magnificent paper collection "Vintage Beauty" from Craft O' Clock! I have really enjoyed creating a scrapbook layout as well as a couple of handmade cards for any occasion. I've created a short video tutorial that you can follow. 
I have created this 3-D dress form about 8 years ago or so when I first started crafting. The credit for this tutorial does belong to Miranda (MsLiberty25) on YouTube. I followed her tutorial then and I'm actually surprised that I remembered it, you are welcome to see her video as well. 
I begin by using the Tim Holtz Sizzix Die "The Sewing Room" , if you don't have this die, I honestly think that any similar die would work too.
I cut 2 chipboard dress forms, I also cut (8) of book paper and (8) of pattern paper from the "Vintage Beauty" 12x12 paper pad from Craft O' Clock included in this months Scrapbook Kit. 
* You can also use all pattern paper or all book paper as long as there are 16 total.
Once all of the papers and chipboard were cut, I then set the chipboard dress forms aside and took the cut book paper and pattern papers and cutkm the top and bottom parts of the dress forms, as you will see on the video. Next you will take the cut pieces and fold each in half using your score tool to make the line crisp at the fold. I then inked all of the edges using Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
Once you have finished with the papers, take one of the chipboard dress forms and cut it in half vertically. Next you will paint them, I used Folk Art Vintage White Acrylic Paint. 
I used my heat tool to dry the painted chipboard pieces. Next I took one of my wooden script stamps and some Archival Ink (Black), you can also used Vintage Photo or any color you like and stamp the painted chipboard pieces. Dry them as well with the heat tool. 
I then took the chipboard dress form halves and adhered them center on each side of the other dress form. I adhered them using Aleene's Tacky Glue with some spots of hot glue just so it glue's fast and still gives the wet glue time to dry. You can use any glue you would like of course. 
I did let this dry over night and I then took the papers and began adhering the creased edge, while rotating each of the papers. There is 4 sides, 16 papers so you will be adhering 4 one each side. As you will see on the video, you can use your score tool to keep those crease lines pressed. Once dry you can go in again using the score tool again as I did on the video. 
I had this small wooden tray that I got at the Dollar Tree store that I had previously painted and papered for a project a few month's back but ended up making something else. So I thought this would go perfect with this dress form AND plus I would be able to fussy cut some of those gorgeous extra ephemera from the "Vintage Beauty" collection and use them in this project. My project back 8 years ago, I had just made the dress form on top of a wooden spool and a little embellished. So this time around I had a different vision. 
I fussy cut what I would be using on the tray and created some small stands so the images would be upright. If you have a different way of making some of these, please share. I just did this on a whim but it worked so that's what mattered. As you will see in my video. 
I did use the Vintage Photo ink on these fussy cut images then adhered them onto the tray with my hot glue gun for a quicker adhesive. 
I did add a crocheted doily on the bottom of the dress form and adhered it to the tray. I had added some pink fiber trim and some small Prima Marketing flowers to the dress form. Lastly I adhered one of the beautiful Little Birdie Pearl Pink flower from this month's Scrapbook Kit against the fussy cut sewing machine. 
I do hope that you liked what I created this week using this month's Scrapbook Kit which is gorgeous! Kits are still available so grab this while you still can! 
I also hope that you are able to follow my video tutorial because I used a different editing app and I hope it was decent! Please give this a try! 
I will be back on Friday with my first project of December so I hope you will stay tuned for our reveal and then projects from myself and my friends and team mates Dana and Crystal!! Till then....
