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.

Wow what a day - we are back and the shop is open

It is wonderful to have things back on track after what has been a very busy few months. We have finally sold our house - and have moved into out new house, painted that and I have run a retreat. I cannot believe how busy it has been. We did escape to Cairns and enjoyed two weeks break and this week I have got the shop up and running again as from 6pm tonight!

Our most exciting news though is that the beautiful Belinda (Belle) Comerford has joined our team as a Design Team Member and we are so very happy to have her on board. Belinda's work compliments the work of the rest of the team - Michelle Lark, Rachel Walsh and Helen Jolly. We all know Belle very well and are so excited to have her on board!

So I want to thank everyone for your support over the past months and hope that you will love our shop as much as ever. It has had a complete overhaul and has lots of new products which I will show you below.

Flatback buttons are  a new line from a clever shop in the US. They add a lot of pizzazz to your work and are available in the shop now under this listing     Flat Back Buttons

Flatback Buttons are available in a range of designs and colours  
Posies are a new item also which use some beautiful flowers threaded through a hand dyed vintage doiley and tnd tied with a ribbon, braid or lace. The flowers are sourced form all over the world and there is nothing like these on the market (yet:)
This is the listing      Posies

Pink but lots of other colours are available too
Vintage tiles are always popular and there are lots in the store .... these are 5beautiful resin tiles with an embellishement and they work beautifully for cards and scrapbooking
They are listed int he shop here   Vintage Tiles 

So many to choose from too you will be spoilt for choice
I am often asked about supplying cameos and so I have decided to stock them. These are the best on the market - they are not the cheapest - but the quality and detail is exquisite and you will not be dissappointed!! I sell them both in setting and without settings.    Cameos

There are 3 sizes to choose from ... all look fab on your work
These hat pins are still excellent sellers - I can proudly say that they are the best on the market - as I only use hight quality beads and jewellry findings. Most beads I use are glass based including the pearls as I think depth of colour and quality is important. I could talk about beads for hours but honestly I think they really speak for themselves.
The shop listing can be found here  Hat Pins

Such gorgeous colours I am sure you agree
These vintage sprigs tend to sell really well and it is easy to see why - they are smaller than the vines available and use a wide variety of flowers and leaves. All are different and they are not mass produced, I carefully produce each one in my studio.
Some, like this one, have surprise elements such as the toadstools pictured here :)
The listing can be found here   Vintage Sprigs

These are very popular!
 These gorgeous hand dyed vintage doily packs are amazing value. Each pack contains 9 hand crafted and hand dyed doileys off all sizes to really add zing to your work. What could be cuter that a sweet bird too or other embellishment which is also included. The listings for these vintage treasures is here   Vintage Doily Packs

Lovely colour ranges to choose from

I love vintage lace and here is some of the best. Over a metre of vintage lace trim and braid in a hand dyed pack of 5 laces, all put together with a flower, tiny doily and pin. Sweet and very useful too! For the listing Vintage Lace Packs 

Beautiful lace all vintage and gorgeous
There is no doubt about it ... I love ephemera and I have quite a collection for sure. So I have put together favourites to enjoy in your crafting - you will love these and there is enough for a couple of projects in each pack. The ephemera kits can be found here   Ephemera Inspiration Kits 

Well I still have more to show you and to share but I think for now your head must certainly be spinning - so I will leave you to enjoy the shop and the new things ...... have lots of fun I will catch up again soon

With love
