Shabby chic is growing on me.

If you are here for the Jumpin June Bug Blog Hop please scroll down one post!

Looks like I am getting better and better at this shabby chic/vintage/distress style since lately ALL of my swap partners are into it! Gives me lots of practice! Although it is not my favorite style it is nice to step out and try it and have it go semi right! The following items I made for my Secret June bug on the cricut message board. She received them awhile back so I hope she liked them like she said she did. Here we go.

I found these super cute and small notebooks at Joann's a while back. They are Kraft colored and have a burnt looking papers inside.
It is hard to tell but I used the Viva Decor pearl pens on this one, but smeared it all over for a pearly shine.
This was the first time I had tried to do two step crackle, it came out alright I think.
This is another altered luggage tag from Michael's dollar bin that I turned into a bookmark of sorts. I sure hope Terri liked them as she said her favorite colors were green and brown right now. I tried to do her style, I hope I got it right. I also included some fun store bought goodies, picture below.
