Free Printable! Vintage Wallpaper Collage

Look what came out of my fortune cookie today!

Cute, I thought, and stashed it away. I only just realized it has come true! 
I sat down tonight to start creating again, and I've been having some fun making mixed-media style background papers out of old wallpapers!   These are really easy to create. Why don't you try some of your own?! They are great starters for all kinds of creative projects. 

Here's one I thought you might like to print out and use in your paper crafting. Would also make great wrapping paper!

My new Princess Collection with Prima is about to be released at the international Craft and Hobby Association's annual trade show in Anaheim on January 10th, 2014!

This is another really sweet, vintage inspired collection featuring old-world princesses, butterflies and birds, and of course lots of pretty florals and rich textures. This is just a peek, so there is more to come! More embellishments, and more flowers.

A Delightful Little Giveaway!

Hello peeps! Can you believe I got so busy these last 6 months I forgot to introduce you to my new 'Delight' Collection?!?! Crazy, I know.   Most of you have already seen it and love it.  Thank you for purchasing and for all the wonderful comments and feedback you have been giving me!!

Let me show you the Delight Collection here in detail again now and at the bottom of the post is a wonderful 'Delightful' little giveaway for you. All you need to do is comment FROM MY FACEBOOK FAN PAGE HERE.  Tag 2 people in your comment on Facebook, and I will pick a winner next Wednesday January 8.   Have fun, good luck! If you don't have Facebook, then you can comment below.

Filled with fanciful vintage details and charming nostalgic imagery, the Delightful Collection is perfect for soft feminine paper crafting projects and to preserve the memories of those that delight you most.

Here are the papers:
 Let's look at these up close to see all the yummy detail!!

These papers are available individually at all good scrapbook stores, and also in a 6x6 inch pad:
And an A4 pad:
The Delight Collection Kit contains 20 sheets total - 2 each of (12"x12") eight double sided papers = 16 sheets total, one type and tab sticker sheet, one journaling spot sticker sheet, two journaling card sheets
 (see below).
Journaling notecards are back! You get 30 in a pack, with 6 different designs. 
And of course Prima have created some gorgeous flowers and other embellishments to compliment this collection!

The chipboard for this collection was awesome!!! But unfortunately it sold out straight away because Prima didn't order enough of it. Lesson learned, I hope they order big next time!! :)

I'm really proud of this collection. I love all the little bits and pieces and think it's one of my best yet. 
And look at all the awesome creations that people have made with it!!
