So I figure since it's getting close to October, you might like some SNEAKS???
October's kit will be AMAZING because I'm doing Webster's Pages "Postcards from Paris" WITH REAL VINTAGE POSTCARDS FROM PARIS!! Yes, I will have some of the postcards I got while at the Postcards and Stamp Flea Market in Paris this Summer!! I also have some of the other VINTAGE FINDS and other goodies from my Europe trip! This kit is going to ROCK, (if I don't say so myself ;)-
I've also got some GREAT Etsy finds and EVERY WEBSTER's PAGES embellishment in this new line!! So here goes ladies.... some MAJOR SNEAKS:
Can you see what these are?? They are VINTAGE CAMEOS!!! They are on plastic sticks and I'm not sure what they were used for?? Almost like stir sticks of cupcake picks but the sticks are pretty long. Anyways, I found these at Paper Tales a LONG time ago and was waiting for the perfect kit to put them in!! I only have 30 of them so there will be 30 kits with ALL the embellishments and 20 kits with mostly the papers and some of the embellishments.
I had my DEAR friend, Angela Harris make us some more vintagy tags!! She's made 3 this month b/c I couldn't decide which one to get so I got them ALL!!
Some Prima GOODNESS of course!! Here are their new Say it in Pearls AND there new jewel studs. The studs are in a beautiful coffee brown color that look so rich!!
O.k. check out this SUPER CUTE tape! I think it's like painters tape that they printed these beautiful images on! I don't have it in my posession yet, but I can't WAIT to see it in person!!
O.k. here's two things... The first is the handmade paper from Italy!! Yes, the script paper was from the day in Verona where my dear hubby saw a paper store and clued me in on it! Thanks again babe! I was off looking at other windows and he said, "you might want to go in this store!" Yes, I might have wanted to!!!!! hehehe... And the other pink flowers are like a Dresden paper I think, but VERY VINTAGE and WONDERFUL! It's another thing I've been saving for the PERFECT KIT!!
Oh, and the paper behind all these pictures is in the kit too! It's vintage inspired maps of Paris and I bought a TON of them. You won't be getting the whole 16x20 map, but I will be cutting it up into nice size to use in your projects!!
YES, this is the 1st time I've used TYPEWRITER KEYS IN MY KITS and I LOVE IT!! I found these and HAD to have them! Only the 30 heavy embellishment kits will have these but they are the perfect dark brown that goes with this kit!!! Yeah!!!
O.k. are you getting excited or what? I'm typing as fast as my little fingers can type b/c I'm SUPER DUPER EXCITED ABOUT THIS KIT!! This is why I've gone down to 50 kits instead of 150... It gives me WAY more creativity in bringing REAL VINTAGE goodies to my kits!! THAT'S what I want MY KITS to be ALL ABOUT!!!
VINTAGE TRIMS AND SEAM BINDING!! Gotta LOVE that!!! The brown is just gorgeous and the cream with tiny pink edging is so dainty!
And, here are some more scrapbooking embellishments from Prima, Maya Road and Jenni Bowlin!!
And here are more goodies from Europe! The brown swirly frames are from Venice in a really cute paper store that I've stopped into both times I've been in Venice! They have amazing paper as Italy is known for their intricate papers. Unfortunately, you only get to have 1 frame sticker each as I didn't buy enough to go around... But, you're also getting a VINTAGE POSTCARD FROM PARIS!! Yes, how cool is that? When I came home from Europe this Summer and saw this new line from Webster's Pages, I got on the phone THAT SECOND and ordered the WHOLE LINE! Now I've had the papers for a while, but I didn't want to bring you my kit until I had their ENTIRE LINE in my hands! It goes so perfectly with all my Europe finds so how could I resist??? Please check out Webster's Pages "Postcards from Paris" line here and make sure you come back to my blog and check out when they will be up for sale! I've got a call into them right now to see when everything is shipping and as soon as I get it in my hands, I will get everything together and REVEAL the kits! This will most likely be the second week of October but I will be giving you a LOT of notice on this blog on the exact date as soon as I know!!
Oh, I also have MORE goodies in the kit, but didn't want to share EVERYTHING... There has to be a little bit of a surprise! But as you can see, this is going to be ANOTHER PACKED KIT!!
So let me know what you think of October kit so far?? Leave a comment on HERE and I'll being GIVING AWAY ONE (MINI) OCTOBER KIT!! I'll give you a full week to leave a comment and announce the winner next Friday, Oct. 2!!
Have a WONDERFUL WEEKEND everyone!!
One more thing, I just blogged on the Clear Scraps blog so check that out here and then next week I'm going to post on their blog again and show everyone how to make this:
It's an acrylic "pumpkin" I made with one of their XL circle shapes and LOTS of Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks, Stayz On Inks, paint and the new Making Memories Fall line!!
O.k. gotta run to Isabella's class for "Apple Day". I'm the SCRAPBOOK MOM! Seriously... They had an announcement that they needed a scrapbook mom and Isabella was SOOOO excited! I asked the teacher if I could be "that mom" and she said I'm Hired!!! ;)- Yeah!! So I'm going to be documenting all their little parties and fun days with my camera and then doing a scrapbook album with the kids towards the end of the year! How fun is that?!
Did I show you what Isabella did with her hair? Oh man, I don't think I did...
Here's a quick picture and then I've gotta run...
