Weekend show and Upcoming Sneak Peek

Hello everyone!

I have been so busy!  This weekend there is a scrapbooking show up in Rhinelander, Wisconsin on Saturday from 9:00-3:00 at the high school gym.  I will have a booth at this event selling Paper Fashions Boutique kits!  I will also have 3 make and takes going throughout the day so make sure you stop by my booth and say hello!

If you are an online customer I just want to make you aware that tonight I will be zeroing out all inventory totals in paypal in order to take all inventory with me to the show.  On Sunday evening or Monday morning I will reload what is left of my inventory to the site and you will again be able to purchase. 

Watch the blog next week when I post a sneak peek of the kits I have been working on for October.  Hint.....I think fall is in the air!

Did you know?

Hello Paper Fashions Boutique customers!

Did you know that once a kit sells out that the instructions are then posted separately for sale on the website?  It's true!  All instructions are posted under the tab marked "previous kits."  So if you already have some product of your own you want to work with and do not want to purchase an entire kit, you can just pick up the instructions.  You can see the Good Eats Recipe album instructions by following the link. 

For September I am going to do 2 different project designs.  One will be available as a complete kit as always and for the other I am going to release instructions right away.  That is correct!  So for so many of you who want instructions right away, this is your month!  I will not always be doing this, but occasionally so the folks who would like instructions right away can get them!

Watch the blogs because I have sneak peeks of both projects coming very soon!

September, Changing things up!

As you know I've been creating two kits and launching them at the beginning of each month.  I know many of you have said you really want to use up your supplies that you have on hand and you just want instructions.  So with that in mind I am going to do things a little different for September. 

First I am going to do one kit for purchase for September.  This particular kit is going to be all pre-cut!  So all you will have to do is take your adhesive and put it together.  There will be no cutting or trimming involved!

Second, instead of doing a second kit for purchase I am going to create a set of instrucitons and offer those right away without introducing a kit first. 

So those who like kits will have a kit to purchase.  Those who have been wanting instructions right away will also have instrucitons to purchase for a second project!

This one is from the vacation mini album and it is a couple of pics of the interior pages.

Next are a couple of pictures of the card kit detail.

August Kit Reveals!

Hello everyone!

I am so excited to be able to show you the August kit reveals!  Here are the pictures so you can see what I have created for you for the month of August!

Just in time for your summer vacation photos!  This 6"x6" mini album has lots of character starting right with the front cover.  See that stitched luggage tag?  That is a real luggage tag that will hold your intro vacation photo right on the front cover!  You will also notice the darling tag hanging off the ball chain attached to a binder ring as well!  The inside pages contain pockets and tags and all kinds of wonderful things! 

The second kit for August in a beautiful boxed card set.  I've had so many of you ask for a card kit and I thought I would introduce my very first one with a bang!  The colors are stunning!  The kit contains the box, 6 card blanks, 6 linen finish envelopes, a designer pen, and all the papers and embellishments (with plenty to spare) to create the boxed kit as shown.  This is a lovely gift item for the upcoming holidays and there is nothing quite a wonderful as giving a handmade gift!

On a side note:  I will be attending the Craft and Hobby Trade Show in Chicago July 26-31st, returning home on Sunday August 1st.  These kits will be released for purchase on August 1st and I will begin shipping all orders out on Monday August 2nd.  Any order that come in while I am at the trade show will ship out on August 2nd as well.

Make sure you follow me on Twitter if you want to see my reports from the trade show floor and other events.  My twitter name is PaperFashions.  Or just click on the link at the bottom of my blog page below!

August kits

Well there were some very good guesses for the upcoming August kit release!  The two kits for August will be a Vacation Mini album and a Boxed card set.  I will be sending the newsletter out with the full reveal photos in the next day or two so watch for that to come shortly!

Also the Good Eats Recipe album is sold out.  So that means you can now purchase the instructions by going to the previous kits page on my website.  Once a kit sells out in most cases you are then able to purchase the instructions. 

Next, I would love some feedback from you! 

1.  What kits have been your favorite so far?
2.  What type of kits are you hoping for in the future?
3.  Anything else you would like me to know! 

Please send an e-mail to me at with your feedback above.  I'd love to hear from you!

Sneaky Peeky for July

Ok, I thought I'd give each of you a tiny little glimpse of what I have up my sleeve for the July kits.  It was great fun last time when I encouraged you to guess, so feel free to guess on this thread or send me an e-mail.  This is the first of two sneak peeks since I am releasing 2 kits for August.  So come back tomorrow to see the next!

So, what do you think this one is?  Do you recognize the paper company/line?

Friday, July 9, 2010

Opinions please......

Ok, as you know I normally send out two newsletters for my kit club each month.  One comes about mid-month and is a sneak peek of what is coming.  The next one comes the day the new kits are available to purchase on the website.  My questions.....

1.  Do you like receiving both newsletters

2.  Would you only prefer to receive the newsletter the day the kits go live? (in this instance I would use the blog to post the sneak peek photos at mid-month)

I don't want to overwhelm anyone with too much e-mail so I thought I'd ask this question.  Please either comment in this thread or feel free to send me an e-mail with your feedback.

Saving you Time

So you have found the perfect collection of papers and embellishments in the Scrapbook store and you now have them at home and ready to use!  You love the colors and the design on the patterned papers and the embellishments are out of this world cool!  Now you have your scrapbook kit ready to go!  You sit down to begin your project so excited to create and then it happens...

Where do you start? 
How do you begin?

Sometimes our creativity flows so easily and other times we get stuck.  If you have ever designed your own project from start to finish you know that it can takes hours of your precious time.  That is time you could have spent going to the beach, spending with your family or friends, or doing a million other things!

I created Paper Fashions Boutique to save you time!  I do all of the design work, I write the step by step instructions and I insert the photos to make it easy for you!  In fact if you purchase a kit I even save you the time and gas money (or shipping fees) of shopping for the supplies!  Once your project kit arrives you are able to sit down right away and create!  It is already done for you, the choosing, the shopping, the travel time and expense, and the design time! 

I know you are busy and I created Paper Fashions Boutique as a solution for folks who are busy and still want to spend some time in the creative process of scrapbooking.

I will also tell you that for July I am releasing three scrapbook project kits!  A nice variety of projects and price points.  So, now for more guessing fun!  There are 3 photos below.  Can you guess what the project kits are for each photo? 

Ok, this is kit #1

Here is kit #2

Finally kit #3

Leave your guesses in the comments below!  I can't wait to see what you will guess!

Saturday, June 12, 2010


If you have ordered from me you know I ship each day because I want to get your kit to you as quickly as I can...because I am a scrapbooker and there is nothing more fun than gettting a package of scrappy fun!

Anyway, I wanted to give you head up that I will be out of town attending a conference from Sunday June 13-Wednesday June 16th.  So any orders that come in during this time will be shipping on Thursday when I return.  I will try to check e-mail remotely as I can in case any of you have questions!

Thanks for your understanding!

Ha!  Did I get you with the title?  Actually Vangie answered my last post encouraging me to post the peeks of my scrapbook project kits now!  LOL

Well, I am not ready for a strong reveal yet, but how about about showing you the paper line I am using for July?  I want to see if anyone can guess what company makes this line and what the name of the line is!  Post your guesses as a comment below!  Will be fun to see who guesses correctly first. 

Then stay tuned because in a few days I just maybe post a little bit more information for you!

Scrapbook Project Kits

So if you have landed on my blog it is most likely because you are in search of scrapbook project kits!  (or else you just like to visit my blog)  If you are in search of scrapbook project kits then you have come to the right place because that is exactly what my site is all about!

First I want to explain for anyone that is new here exactly what my site offers.  My goal is to bring you distinctive paper crafting project kits for a variety of paper crafters.  So you can expect to see kits that include layouts, cards, mini albums and altered items/home decor.  I know how busy you are and when you purchase a kit from Paper Fashions Boutique you are getting a complete kit that includes a custom designed work of art, detailed instructions and hours of love in providing you a wonderful creative experience.

Once kits sell out, I will then post instructions that will be sold individually for you to purchase.  So if you already have the supplies on hand you will be able to create the project using the instructions. 

At any time if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me for help.  I love being available and connecting to my guests at Paper Fashions Boutique!

June 2010 Kits

This is my very first month launching my scrapbook project kit website!  This is so exciting for me and a dream come true.  So many people over the past few years have encouraged me in this direction and I finally decided to take the plunge!  My goal is to bring you the scrapbook and paper craft kits you are looking for.  So please post here on the blog or contact me via e-mail at any time with your feedback.  I want to hear from you! 

So, lets take a real look at the June kits.  How about we start with the Good Eats Recipe Mini album kit?  The love the old fashioned feel of this book and the fact that it is the perfect size to have out while baking.  How many times I've had out a large cookbook that just kept getting in the way!  I love the fact you just flip to the page you want and start cooking one of your favorite recipes.  My book is a collection of recipes from my grandmother, mom, and friends.  So many yummy and treasured recipes are in this book. 

Each page has it's own unique style and design!  You will find clipped pages, lower pocket pages, and side pocket pages, right along with single recipe card pages  This is a great scrapbook kit to get your creative juices flowing.  You can actually fill this little book with a lot of recipe cards since it has the pockets and clip.  That means you can fit several recipe cards into one pocket or under the clip allowing you to maximize your space.  The photo above is one of my mom's cookie recipes that she shared with me many years ago.  There is something that is very special to me seeing that recipe in my mom's own handwriting.  See why hand journaling is so important? 

The second kit for June is the Summer Birdhouse project kit.  Wooden birdhouses have to be one of my favorite things to alter.  I love the fact that you can make them seasonal because there are always birds around.  So this one is for summer and as you can see in the photo above I have it displayed proudly on my fireplace mantle.  I actually create seasonal displays year round (spring, summer, fall, and winter) and a birdhouse is a wonderful part of a seasonal display.  What do you think?  Should I offer seasonal birdhouse kits over the course of the next two years?  So may a winter birdhouse kit? 

As you can see in the photo I have added a bird to the perch.  Although this is not included in the paper crafting project kit I wanted to show you how I add the bird to my seasonal display.  Right now we seem to have cardinals everywhere and my 6 year old loves to spot them so I thought she would have great fun seeing one in our living room each day.

Please feel free to leave me a comment and let me know which kit is your favorite!  I love hearing from you!

Happy Crafting!

Welcome to Paper Fashions Boutique!

I am glad you found my website and blog! 

This blog will be the weekly place where I will keep you up to date about what is happening at Paper Fashions Boutique.  Sometimes, just while working on the next months scrapbook project kit I may put up a very small teaser sneak peek.  Or I may hint at something that is coming for a future kit.  Either way, this is the place to check when you are looking for new information!  Also make sure you are on the Paper Fashions Boutique newsletter list so you don't miss kit release announcements.  You can find a link right on the home page of the website.

The concept of Paper Fashions Boutique is simple.  We create distinctive Scrapbook project kits for you!  Each month will be something different.  There will always be a rotating variety of kits such as layout kits, mini album kits, altered item kits, home decor kits, gift item kits, and card kits.  Each kit comes with supplies and step by step instructions.  If you see a kit you like, make sure to purchase it right away.  I create my kits in a limited number and once they are gone, they are gone.  After kits sell out each month the instructions will then be posted on the site for purchase.  So if you miss a kit, you can still purchase the instructions, gather your own supplies, and create the project on your own.  Instructions will be sent to you at the e-mail address listed in paypal after you have made the purchase.  (I have to do this manually so your instructions will not come immediately) 

There is no subscription to my project kits.  You browse and shop when you like, and then make your purchases based on what you like best.  I will track what sells quickly to make sure I am meeting the demand of what people are looking for.  I read all comments on this blog so this is a great place to tell me what you like and what you would like to see more of!

If you live in the Plover, Wisconsin area and prefer to pick up your kit, please contact me via e-mail.  This way you will not get charged shipping by purchasing through the paypal shopping cart system.   So you let me know, I send you an invoice minus shipping (sales tax will still apply in WI) and then once you pay the invoice I will send out your kit.  For other questions, please check the FAQ area of the website.  If you still have questions about anything at all, please contact me via e-mail info at paperfashionsboutique dot com.  I am always thrilled to hear from customers and love to help!

Happy Crafting!
