I love photos like the ones below. It's a creative mess that you just want to dive into, right? All of the wonderful supplies that I'm so fortunate to own and play with...it makes me happy every time I walk into my craft room.
I was inspired today by some new patterned paper that I got from Nichole's local scrapbook store. The line is called Sweet Shoppe from Collage Press and is it ever heavenly. I need to order some more soon when I find a good online source!
I went a little vintage pink with my cards today, combining Papertrey images with a shimmery cream ribbon, a homemade patterned background using Guidelines 2...some pink shimmery Martha Stewart glitter.........
...the images I combined use a Vintage Picnic basket from the set I designed and Nichole so wonderfully illustrated. I paper pieced the basket from some of my lovely patterned paper. The flowers are from Everyday Button Bits, topped off with adorable little pink Vintage Buttons and some white vintage buttons from my antique finds. The images are stamped on little journal sheets from Making Memories that I found at Archivers. Little clear sequins finish off some of the flowers.
I got so inspired from my finished cards that I decided to make up a few Vintage Pink Mishie Mini Kits for my Etsy shop. It's a little bit of all things cute, combined with cheery pink and olive green accents.
There's pretty patterned paper from Sweet Shoppe, pink and green velvet ribbon snippets, journaling sheets from Making Memories........and below are pieces from an old book that have been distressed with Ranger inks and sprayed with pink and pearly colored Glimmer Mist....and a few punched leaf accents.
Add in some sweet little flowers with pink sequin centers....and some scalloped punched circles with pretty tied buttons and some hand cut, creamy white circles......and you've got yourself some button baubles.......
It's a cute little kit...totally girly.....with a vintage feel......just waiting for something creative to happen. Each kit will come with the contents shown below, enough to create a few cards, a scrapbook page or maybe decorate a cute sack.
