and we have a great line-up of kits this month, with lots of exclusives and lots of vintage!
This month's Papercrafting Kit has beautiful muted color and includes one of my favorite most recent finds - two strips of original cigar box side labels with amazing color and graphics. I am also in love with the exclusive wood veneer frame, reminiscent of an old style photo frame . . .
The Artisian Add-On this month is so full of little details, you won't know where to start (but the gallery will be full of ideas to get you started)!!! . . .
The Historian Add On is full of the great items you're used to like journaling cards and extra alphas, but you will also swoon over the little zipper bag from freckled fawn - perfect for holding all of your extra goodies!! . . .
I'm in LOVE with the Antiquarian kit this month. While it has many items that will blend with the Papercrafting Kit perfectly, I designed it with a naturalist theme in mind and have included so many lovely vintage and natural items including vintage paperback French novels, beautiful sequin trim, tiny vials, handmade pressed ferns and so much more. . .
I have longed loved to collect Sailor's Valentines. In the Victorian era (and beyond), sailors collected shells and glued them to boxes and frames to bring home to their sweethearts. This month's Crafted Kit is my interpretation! You get two boxes and plenty of seashells, some tacky glue, antique ledger paper and an antique calling card. . .
This month's Flea Market is off to a great start with some truly unique items including . . .
vintage French glass beaded trim . . .
a rare billows camera with hexagon face. . .
A great Buddy L Kennels collectable truck with adorable dog graphics. . .
a truly wonderful small leather menswear catalog with fabric samples, a catalog and order forms . . .
a cute little Ruby industrial camera. . .
and one of the most amazing stamp sets we have ever had, complete with phrase stamps that politely (and not so politely!) tell a customer that their account is past due. . .
And don't miss our JBS Flag Banner Chipboard pieces at only $.99 this month - a great deal!
Happy August! I'm headed to the 127 Sale next week (also know as the world's longest yard sale) and promise to post some updates on my finds here (will try to be better at posting in August). Follow my adventures on Instagram too - jbowlin7.
