Etsy Shop ReVamp

I am SO excited to finally have updated My Etsy shop with some newly created products.
It was time to see what other product designs I could come up with. I am showing my favorite creation first. These little scalloped cone paper Earrings!
These are really really cute on! At first my husband looked at me like I was crazy and then I put them on and he got it.
I have listed the most basic and beautiful pair so far. Just a simple Ephemera earring. But there is so much to do with this concept. I need to paint the paper first and add some beading and so on.. This technique is going to be a very fun one to play with! And how fitting that you should be wearing paper earrings to your scrap nights and art classes!

It was time to retire the 3 Trim Tag sets for a few months and create some simpler supply tags that you can take apart and use. Above are individual tags wrapped with ALOT more trims than before. Vintage Mini Millinery roses handstitched onto vintage book paper tags were a beautiful embellishment for this tag.
There is no reason to do away with my signiture coffee dyed hand cut tags but I was interested in seeing what kind of tags I could make with ephemera. I have many beautiful old books that have served their purpose and are ready to be used for art. Above is a beautiful solution to this. Using vintage delicate book paper I hand punch tags, stamp images with staz- on ink and add a simple cotton string.
I have a beautiful collection of many Vintage Rhinestone pieces that really should stand alone on a supply tag. Here is a vintage rhinestone bow pinned onto a vintage music sheet scalloped circle.
This supply tag has 2 yards of each vintage lace, a few scalloped circle tags and a vintage rhinestone jewelry bauble.
These Ephemeral Tags have been printed on directly instead of having been stamped.
It creates a very original look that would be beautiful for Jewelry tagging I believe.
And my final product that I have just listed are the most amazing ephemeral sheets you have ever seen. I have sold sheets like this before but the vintage book paper I had used before was just too thin and delicate for printing. These sheets however are from a sturdy book printed in the 1890's. It is a French Art book called (CALZINE ,VRBINO)
All items seen in this post are listed in my shop now and ready to take home!!!
