Emma's Shoppe

Happy weekend! I am sharing a set of cards that I made using yummy goodies from The Craft's Meow. Big thanks to Lisa for letting me play with these fabulous products! =) Lisa invited the fabulous Nina Brackett to design stamps for her and Sarah Martina Parker to design card kits. I don't know where she got the idea, but she also invited me to create card kits for her store. I told her that she is doing this at her own risk, but she wanted me to do it anyway. Well, somebody has to be the weakest link on the team, right? =) You can see the announcement here.


The patterned paper is from the yummy Emma's Shoppe collection by Create Paper. I also used a mini stamp set called Just For You designed by Claire Brennan of Waltzingmouse Stamps exclusively for The Craft's Meow.


The seam binding, tiny tags die and a couple of the sentiments are from my stash. All others are from the Emma's Shoppe collection. The paper is from Emma's Shoppe Paper Pack B.


I stamped the doily image from the mini Just For You stamp set on the little tags. The chipboard flowers, baby carriage and the mini vintage pattern cover are from the Chipboard Accents sheet.


The journaling cards are from the Accent Cuts sheet. The doily is stamped on the kraft base with fresh snow ink. I just adore the vintage look from this collection!

That's all I have for now. Go to The Craft's Mewo Fan Page and be a friend of the store! Lisa is giving away a set of the 4 stamp sets designed by Nina Brackett that are being released on May 1st for every 100 fans by April 30th. I have seen these stamps and they are gorgeous, so don't wait! Also, don't forget to go and check out all the goodies at The Craft's Meow! =)



Have a happy day and thanks for stopping by!

You do cute cards so well. And now you do shabby vintage so excellently as well. Is there anything you can't do? I am so thrilled to be working with you, Alice!
