A Little about Tattered Inspirations

Tattered Inspirations is a little business which aims to provide products with a vintage heart to use in your crafts - be it scrapbooking, card making or other crafty pursuits.

The Tattered Inspirations shop is here
Tattered Inspirations

Markets - we will keep you informed as we have no idea when we will be able ot go to the Old Bus Depot due to their rennovations. once I know I will pop it here :)

The business is only tiny and is not in any way out to make lots of money but rather to offer products to compliment the usual supplies available by big companies.

The Design Team Rachel Walsh, Belinda Comerford, Kathy Marchant, Daniella Tassone and Suzie Lowe creatively use the products to show people what can be done - and I treasure their input and design work immensly.

Thank you for dropping by, we aim to encourage and inspire you to do something different out of your comfort zone, in new and exciting ways.

Hat Pins for Creative Crafts

I have been trying to source hat pins for my own scrapping projects and card making and they have been very (very) elusive!

The ones that are available are totally boring - all the same, difficult to get and the same size.

So I made my own!!!!

Here is Yuletide Celebrations

They are available too on my Etsy if you want to look at more - and yes they do look very cool on layouts, cards, hats and lapels......

Another set - love these colours

I really enjoy making these - could be another addiction!!

And here are two pics of how they look on creative type crafts like scrapbooking and card making

So there you have it..... they are sweet and affordable - I hope you like them (I already have a say from California - pretty cool hey?)

I have quite a bit of vintage goodness appearing on my Etsy soon - so pop in now nad then to have a look
