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.

I have been busy

I have been busy I have a lot to show you...

New Kit
Firstly a new kit 'Man About Town' it is manly (of course) and vintage with real ephemera from the 1950s..... the predecessor of this kit (My Father's Lifetime) has sold out completely and it was time to create another version for all those manly type kits - it is up in etsy now!
Shelee will also be scrapping with this kit in the next few weeks - I look forward to seeing what she produces

Man About Town Vintage Scrapbook Kit
Available here

Detail of hand antiqued and and stamped vintage seam binding, cabochon and hat pin

Hand-dyed Vintage Seam Binding and Lace
Yep I did it today and now it is drying in the sun - gaining that aged look!
It is not the same as the one that was on etsy but it is beautiful and I know you will love this stuff too!!
I am hoping to card it tomorrow

The gorgeous colours of hand dyed vintage seam binding
Should be up tomorrow on Etsy
