2 new kits in the shop

The last couple of weeks I have been creating a lot. After the creative dust had settled down πŸ˜„ I came out with as many as 5 brand new beautiful bundles. Two of them are now in the shop. Let me tell you a little bit more about those two.

1: The Embellishments On The Coin Envelope is a freebie

A small bundle that is so versatile. Lovely words, small phrases and of course butterflies πŸ˜ŠπŸ¦‹ There is also a template with instruction to make a coin envelope. The four gorgeous nature images with all those butterflies is from a vintage book, published on Flickr by th Biodiversity Heritage Library. Just click the image to check out the freebie!

2: The Basic Papers Set volume 1 – gorgeous neutral vintagy papers

While is was crafting myself, decorating pages in my journal, it occurred to me that I could use some pretty papers that are sort of neutral. To serve as a background for collages and things like that. Using several pretty patterns, combined with a neutral, vintage colour scheme, I created a Basic Papers Bundle. And yes, there are more like these to come… πŸ˜„ that’s why this is Volume 1.

I don’t want you to break the bank to be able to buy this one, so it is only $1… Click the image to get your bundle today!

New 10 minute projects on YouTube

With that template of the coin envelope, combined with one of the sentiments of the freebie – The Embellishments on the Coin Envelope – I created this beauty. I’ve filmed πŸŽ₯ the process, so that is a cute, quick & easy 10 minute project for you to follow along.

And what about this pretty one? An envelope made with one of the beautiful papers from the β€œThere is Music in the Papers” bundle, combined with the two cute girls from my freebie β€œThe Grandparents In The Pictureβ€œ. This one is a little longer, so I think this is a nice one as a weekend project πŸ˜„

The last video I would like to share with you is one where I filmed a flip through of a finished journal. This beauty has now arrived at her new home with one of my Instagram followers. Sit back and enjoy the lovely pages! I hope it will bring you some inspriation for your own journals.

So that is all of the good news πŸ˜„ Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your sweet, warm, kind messages & comments. It really means a lot to me.

Love, Maureen
