By now you probably know how I feel about kitsch…kinda awesome!
In January I made some pretty kitschy art journals, so I thought it would be fun to put some ephemera packs together too.
Filled with all manner of kitschy goodness, cards, game pieces, images, postage stamps, the usual suspects.
Of course with all the orange and green goodness that befits the 60’s and 70’s.
50+ pieces in each pack, including some pretty cool paperclips to decorate your project.
I made eight of these, and each one is totally unique. Please pop over to my Etsy shoppe to see the full line.
…and as always,
Thank you for the visit,
Have a great week,
It has been a while since I’ve had the time to work in my shoppe, but I promised myself that I would focus primarily on my family over the last few months.
Between the Holidays, my son’s wedding and family in and out of town, I didn’t want to miss a moment, and I’m so grateful I did, so many wonderful memories!
But now it’s back to business!
These “mid-Century Children’s Books” ephemera packs are just the beginning!
I took a break, but my brain didn’t, and I have quite a few “Themed” ephemera pack ideas waiting in the wings!
Actually, if you have any ideas for ephemera packs you’d like to see, I’d love to hear about them!
And, I’m happy to say that my art journal inventory has dwindled quite a bit over the last few months. I can’t wait to get started building that back up again!
If your interested in seeing the full new line, 12 in all, follow this link to my shoppe.
So stay tuned for more fun stuff in my shoppe!
And as always,
Thank you for stopping in,
Have a great weekend,
I’ve been beavering away in the shoppe this week, and wanted to share some of the highlights, and offer a 20% discount!
Here’s what’s new:
Sweet “Little Golden Book” art journals.
I try to buy the most vintage versions of these books, so a lot of these are from the 50’s. Hence, the “Well loved” look.
Some Granny Chic paper clips.
I try to make the backs of these cute, because of the page turning thing.
I went in a different direction with these art journals. They have a rustic, vintage look to them.
If you want to see more details of all this goodness, pop over to my shoppe by clicking the word shoppe, or the link in my sidebar.
Also, if you find something you can’t live with out, use the coupon code: CUSTOMERLOVE20 at check out and receive 20% off your entire purchase.
See you soon,
New art journals and ephemera packs in the shoppe today!
One of my favorite things to do is to gather up books and ephemera within a theme. Christmas and Halloween is easy, but some of the other themes I come up with are a bit trickier. I’ve had this one on the back burner for quite a while…
…”Country Life”, just in time for summer!
Each ephemera pack has 45+ pieces with matching paperclips (loved making those!).
Lots of farming, barnyard animals, and fruits and veggies.
The journals have lots of super cute pages with a country theme.
Each one comes with their own small selection of ephemera of course.
And painted art pages.
Please mosey on over to PattysArtJournals if you would like to see more details, the link to my shoppe is in my sidebar, or click here.
I’m happy to say that I’ve decided to do these “Shoppe News” posts during the week from now on. I want to leave my weekends free for sharing my latest creative projects, or in the case of this weekend’s post, thrifting! Yay!
Thanks so much for the visit
Hopefully I will see you this weekend,
My goal of finishing up “half-baked” art journals is well on it’s way.
I’m one of those people that gets super inspired, then wants to jump in before I loose my momentum, leaving partially finished projects in my wake.
This journal is from a batch of mini art journals I made back in 2015. They were really popular, they may have to make a comeback.
The final page spread. Time to move on…
…but before I do that, I want to share the new ephemera packs this journal inspired me to make for my shoppe.
There’s a lot to take in here, flower cutouts (I cut way more than I’ll ever use), stamped images, floral postage stamps, vintage images from an old gardening book, birds…well, you get the idea.
I think these are my favorite ephemera packs to date. I made 10 of them, so if you’d like to see more, pop over to my shoppe by hitting the link in my sidebar or go here.
I’ve struggled over the last week as to which “half-baked” art journal I want to jump back into for June, and I have finally chosen one. I’ll share more about that next time.
Thanks so much for stopping by,
Have a great weekend,
