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.

lots of hatpins and vintage tiles back in stock

I have been busy lately putting these gorgeous embellishments together and love the effect.
With the vintage tiles there is enough to keep everyone happy - birds, movie stars, art nouvea, fairies everything else. So lovely and so very useful.... use them on cards, on layouts or anything else you can think of..... I have more to load too in the week to come.... more William Morris, words, sentiments and flowers.

Using the tiles at the base of a photo (staggered) 
Yep that is me on the left (LOL)
Ode to William Morris Tiles (mini ones)

 This was from a layout I did with the words set of tiles
 It is hard to see but I put them on pop dots to give dimension and they look great on a heritage page

I have also been adding some lovely stamped findings to the packs too - so now many round tiles come with metal frames  so you can choose your favourite and pop that one in the frame - easy as!

Isn't this gorgeous - the stamped finding works really well
Just pop in your favourite tile and secure with a glue dot - easy as!

Butterflies are back and cute Chemist ephemera (Hair vigor anyone??)

 Art Nouveau flowers and gorgeous resin flowers on stamped findings..... so pretty

And hat pins are now back in stock too - As many of you know I went to LSBS Retreat last weekend and made lots of hat pins because it just felt right to do that! I really do love making them - and I only use really good beading and jewelry findings.... most of my pearls and beads are actually glass - they give a great depth of colour and a radiance not found in other suppliers.

 Recently I found some great findings in gold so now we have Midas, Eldorado and Ebony and Ivory added to the mix. These look wonderful on a page and add a touch of elegance.

Tomorrow I will use my darling husbands SLR and photograph 2 more kits - these are great!!!... Deb and Bec did a wonderful job with their layouts in the post below with these kits - so I will load them in the shop tomorrow...... I think you will love them

Lastly I want to say thanks you to Scrapbooking delights for stockign my goodies now for their ladies. I do hope that they will go well for you ..... and will order again.

With lots of love
