If you've seen my creations you'll know I love to make unique pieces using old, upcycled papers that I get from all kinds of places - books, magazines, adverts, music sheets, stamps, maps ... well, anywhere really! As such, I have a rather large collection of 'rescued' (please note - not 'hoarded') treasures ready to be reused. The thing is, the collection has got to be far more than I could ever possibly use. So over the holidays I came up with a plan to create some craft packs to share with other crafters.
|A birthday card pieced together using vintage papers|
|Unique luggage label gift tags using tourism postal adverts|
So I'd like to introduce you to Pink Flamingo Ephemera a new online place to buy vintage paper supplies for card making, scrapbooking, collage or any other paper craft that you enjoy. Below are a selection of some of the one of a kind packs you can buy which date from the 1930s - 1980s and are mostly from the UK.
|Vintage scrapbook words £2.50 Pink Flamingo Ephemera|
|Mixed vintage paper pack. 50 pieces for £5 Pink Flamingo Ephemera|
|Cut out vintage women embellishments Pink Flamingo Ephemera £2.25 for 20|
|Mixed pack of used postage stamps £2.50 Pink Flamingo Ephemera|
This is just a little sample of what's available, so please do take a look for more unique packs (with more added on a regular basis).
Over the year will also be posting lots of paper projects with ideas on how to use vintage and upcycled papers.
A New Year's clear out, a new shop and a new batch of paper craft projects ... I'm looking forward to 2014!
