A Handful of Hambly

Hambly Screen Prints just launched a line of Washi Tape, and it's been so much fun experimenting with it. The colors and patterns are great, and it's so easy to work with.

I especially love it combined with their overlays. I've always struggled using clear overlays because I've always found it challenging to adhere the sheets without the glue double-sided tape showing through. The tape works so great because it's meant to be visible, so there's nothing you need to try to hide!

Here's a peek at a couple of projects I've made where I've incorporated the tape. Also, a couple of Easter crafts too.









Warm Colors and a Wedding Fair!

I've been working on a new, very vintage-inspired wedding collection and I wanted to share a few images with all of you. I'm using lots of whites mixed with pale, warm tones. I think they would be perfect for a summer or fall wedding too.




I'll be posting these on Etsy soon, but first they'll be making their debut at a the 2nd annual Vintage Wedding Fair at Ghost Gallery in Seattle this Saturday.

Along with these new pieces, I'll be bring along lots of boutonnieres, bouquets, corsages, wedding cake toppers, and my Making Paper Flowers book/kit.

The theme of this year's fair is "All in the Details". The show will feature vintage-inspired vendors showcasing their hair accessories, jewelry, dresses, flowers, paper goods, hair and make-up artist services, favors, sweet treats and more. Guests will receive champagne, light appetizers and the opportunity to meet with a select group of local vendors who can offer unique and affordable options for the wedding day. The fee for the fair is $5.

The show runs from noon to six, but be sure to get there early - the first 25 attendees get a gift bag filled with all sorts of goodies from the vendors.

For more information, please visit their Facebook Page or shoot me an email with any questions.

A Crafty Wonderland Sneak Peek

I'm all packed up and ready to head down for Portland this weekend for Crafty Wonderland. I LOVE Portland and all the amazing crafters down there, so I'm super excited to be participating in the show.

The past few weeks I've been making lots of new inventory, and also working on some new display ideas.

I made a little cluster of sequined trees to hold the bird pins.


And lots of corsages, boutonnieres, and pins for Moms, weddings and everyday wear.



My booth will be packed with lots of handmade goodies and copies of Making Paper Flowers. If you're in PDX, please come on by!
