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.

SO Much to Share.....

Hi everyone - I apologise in advance about the size of this post - It is large because there is so much to share and I thought (may be unwisely) that I would do it in one post - not the least because I have loaded so much onto facebook today, people will get totally fed up with me if I complete several posts here too as they are linked!

So here we go....

Congratulations are in order.......
The lovely Michelle Lark, who I am delighted to join her, is celebrating as we all are in her fantastic layout being on the over of Scrapbooking Memories this month - it is a beautiful layout by a beautiful lady!!! Congratulations Michelle - so very deserved!!

The Front Cover!!!!

Here is what Michelle says on her blog:
If you have ever submitted a project to magazine for publication I bet you can share with me the disappointment you feel when they send you a "thanks but no thanks" reply. Well you can you imagine my SURPRISE a couple of months ago when I received a "CONGRATULATIONS" email from the editor Kristy, to say that they loved my LO so much they were going to feature it on the FRONT COVER! Yes that's right - Scrapbooking Memories have published my LO on the April issue with a photo of my darling Goddaughter and I can't thank them enough for picking ME! Thank you to my dearest friend Lisa (aka: Vanilla) for sharing such a beautiful photo of her daughter with me and allowing it to be published for the nation to see!

Michelle has also used 'Washday' and here is her sublime layout - this lady is amazing - 0h it just rocks!
