Hello friends! Sorry I have been a little absent from the blog lately. I have been busy working on a custom order for my Etsy shop and have been creating several layouts and cards that I can't share quite yet. Also I am just enjoying summer with my boys! But of course I made some time to create a project for this week's Etsy Inspired Challenge!
Our featured Etsy shop this week is a great little vintage shop that I discovered while browsing. Octavia & Brown is filled with wonderful vintage items for the home. Although I'm more of a clean and simple kind of gal, there's something about the charming vintage pieces in this shop that make me want to head out to flea markets and estate sales to see what goodies I can find!
I was inspired by the graphic feel and colors of the vintage numbers and letters in the shop.
These are the pieces that inspired me to use some new American Crafts goodies that I picked up last week. Isn't that number paper fun?! I wanted to highlight the number 3 so I used my Spellbinders Nestabilities to create a circle frame and added extra detail with a white gel pen. Then I used some great May Arts ribbon and American Crafts thickers to finish off the card.
To play along in the challenge simply head on over to Octavia & Brown and find an item that inspires you, create a project of your own and link it up to the Etsy Inspired blog for your chance to win! This week you could win some beautiful vintage plates from Octavia & Brown. Or a wonderful prize pack from our sponsor this week, Charleston Scrapbook Company!
