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.

New kits and and some lovely cards by Lisa

Well I worked hard this week to bring you 5 new kits - made with the fabulous vintage laces I had delivered in the past few weeks I have been so excited to use them!!!

And I am so delighted to receive wonderful pictures of the work that you clever ladies do with my products I am always happy to share - so much talent out there and so many great ideas.... In February there is a competition .... I will let you know on the 1st Feb all the details - or it is on page one of the newsletter

Lisa Hanrahan has provided me with 2 fabulous cards she made using Tattered Inspirations goodies - but also in particular Lisa has used the wrapping goodies that I include on every package. I love how Lisa has used all the bit and pieces to make cards that are truly original! Thanks Lisa for agreeing to allow me to put your wonderful cards on my blog - I am sure people will really appreciate seeing what can be done!

Best of All

New Kits
I have been working extra hard lately to keep up with demand in the Etsy shop - I have loads of ideas but I am reasonably time poor with a big day job.... whenever I feel like I am getting on top I find that the shop gets really busy and lots of things go at once..... but I am loving this journey - even though my sleeping is not all that is used to be because I create often well into the night (read early morning!)

So here they are the new kits - 2 full kits and 2 mini kits - a drum roll please.......

Strawberry Fields

Strawberry fields
lots of vintage elements, handmade flowers and ephemera

The cutest flower cabochons, vintage ribbon and motif,
and of course a hat pin!


Strawberry Fields
Vintage lace, puffy chintz flowers and ephemera
The ruffle and a closeup of the flower and vintage lace

Cherub - a mini kit
Vintage lace, Swiss vintage flowers, a locket charm
and handmade vintage lace flower
The awesome ephemera prints - which definitely inspired the kit!

Angel - mini kit
Vintage lace, buttons, ephemera and a cute daisy motif
Love this ephemera don't you?
And that cute locket.....

That is it for today I think - Rachel has created an awesome OTP which I will share tomorrow with you....

And I am hoping to get the newsletter out today or at least by tomorrow evening.... I am still finalising some things

Have a wonderful creative day

With lots of love and thanks for sharing this journey
