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.

Seam Binding and Hat Pins

These have to be some of my best sellers - once you become addicted to seam binding it does not let you go....

why?? It is shimmery, verigated and scrunched, soft and works well with all sorts of layouts and applications..... from heritage, to shabby chic, to baby to grownups - there are a huge range of colours and so many applications

You can use it to ....
  • Tie into gorgeous bows... big and small
  • Use on tags
  • gather and stick ont the page
  • Use to tie things together - such as mini albums
  • platt together
  • Make ribbon roses
But the best thing about it - it that it just so beautiful! Soft and gorgeous.....  You can see the full range here in my shop ... Vintage Seam Binding

Hat Pins 

And Hat Pins .... these beauties are just so beautiful - I ensure they are excellent quality as I buy my beads and findings fomr all over the world and use only the highest quality beads in glass, a small amount of plastic and metal. The quality is just outstanding and they are made to add a real zing to your page, card or as a wearable item.
I use in my hat pins:
  • Faceted glass and crystal beads
  • metal fings such as bead tops, spacers and accent beads
  • Diachrondric glass 
  • Glass based pearls
  • Freshwater pearls
  • Cats eye beads
  • Rondels and coronets
  • charms such as butterflies, hearts and flowers
There are other hat pins available so look for the quality and clarity that your work deserves. Certainly I could produce hat pins more cheaply if I used plastic materials but I feel the quality is what makes Tattered Inspirations Hat Pins stand out fromt eh rest... :)
