We have 2 new colors of Gloria doublette crepe, double-sided crepe paper from Werola. Strawberry/Fraise (which translates to strawberry/strawberry, fraise is strawberry in French, odd since it's made in Germany) and Yellow/Apricot. Strawberry/Fraise is close to the same color on both sides. We almost called it Strawberry/Watermelon, but it wouldn't fit in the name field. This is such a pretty color combination which will give a subtle color shade in flower making. Yellow/Apricot is a nice yellow with an orangey apricot color on the other side. It makes us think of candy corn at Halloween time. Also lovely colors in double-side crepe.
We are excited to be able to offer the first collection of vintage inspired images on 12" x 12" fine acid and lignin free papers. Select from 24 different patterns. Beautiful as a traditional background for your next scrapbook pages, or cut them up to make banners, cover books and boxes, make cones for gifts. Whatever you can do with paper, do it pretty with this new collection.
Of course there is our version of the color of the year; Vintage Green.
Available at fine shops and boutiques, as well as on-line by the links on the right.
We know it's early, but now is the time to place your orders so you have plenty of inventory come October/November. Especially if you are making your own items to sell.
These Medallions make the prettiest ornaments and package toppers. They are perfect for the holiday season; Christmas, Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, Graduations, Birthdays and Anniversaries.
Start with a length of ribbon, gather one long edge, tie ends together. Then glue stacked Dresden decorations and stars. We used foam spacers to give them depth. You can also antique the Dresdens using easy painting techniques. Gold Dresdens are amazing for this project as well as the silver.
We could all use a little romance right about now, as winter is in full snowy glory here in the Mid-West, and on the East Coast.

Make a Pretty Spring Wreath using our Dresden Scrap and Millinery Flowers
We used 1 sheet each of butterflies W830 and W830a, 3 bunches of F3008 Tussie Mussies taken apart, and a few W850 centers to attach wires to the back of the butterflies. Just add your own white floral tape, 16 gauge covered wire, a thin bendable wire for butterflies,and a bit of pale green ribbon.
Sandwich a hooked length of thin wire to the backs of the butterflies with a dab of our favorite glue for Dresden's; Beacon 3-in-1 Craft glue, and a small circular motif such as our W850 star/flower to hold the wire, we formed a hook or circle at the top of the wire for maximum hold
Take apart three tussie mussie bunches, we used F1347.
Make a circle with the cloth covered wire using the thin wire to hold together. Gather a few flower sprigs and or wired butterflies and wrap onto wire circle with floral tape. Arranging as you go. Insert a ribbon bow and a loop to hang.
Embellish our Crepe Paper Cups with Dresden and Vintage Scrap

Valentines day is upon us once again, and this year we have had so many requests for our Candy Cone Kits and instructions that we are posting a link to the detailed instructions, from our retail blog; Rose Mille.
The nice thing about these instructions is that they can be applied to make cones for any occasion. The cones come in many colors, as do the party baskets and crepe papers.
It was only a few posts ago, but here is the project photo again.
