Curtsey Kit Sneak Peak and Back to School Digital Freebie

Curtsey Boutique "Little Red Wagon" Kit Sneak Peek

You may have noticed the blog's been a bit quiet lately. This is partly because I've been spending time with the kids, traveling to see family and teaching my summer session - but it is also because I've been hard at work creating the Curtsey Boutique's first kit, "Little Red Wagon". It is chalk FULL of almost 100 items including:

Dyed doilies
Stick Pins
Embossed Glassine Bags
Embossed Kraft Bags
Mini Flags
Cork Embellishments
Felt Embellishments
Mini Albums
Custom Bingo Card
Custom Flashcards
Paper Bag Pockets
and lots more...

The photo above is a sneak peak. I was inspired by the Back to School vibe that's filling the air and my kid's backpacks with new school supplies. Whether you are a card maker, scrapbooker, or packaging fan this kit has something to please every crafty palette.

 The kits will go live for purchase on Monday. Because most of the items are hand made by me limited quantities will be available.

I've also been working hard on finding vintage school themed images so here are two freebies. The first is a 4x6 journaling card and the second is a PNG image (it will have a transparent background) of two sweet little girls working on a chalkboard from a turn of the century Sears Catalog.

You may use the images for commercial use, personal use or scrapbook for hire if you link back to my blog. 

Enjoy the freebies and have a lovely day,

Wood Grain Kraft Bag Packaging Ideas

Curtsey Boutique Wood Grain Kraft Bags and Glassine Polka Dot Bags

I love pretty packaging, and half the fun of running my Etsy shop is embellishing the purchases my lovely shoppers make. These Medium Kraft Bags embossed with a wood grain pattern are now available in the shop and they look sweet with the Polka Dot embossed Glassine Bags.

This parcel is for a sweet bride who purchased some of my fancy blooms and had me turn them into hair clips for her. I think everything about a woman's wedding should be fancy - why not her packaging to?

I used hot glue to adhere the tops of each bag back and to adhere the Polka Dot Glassine Bag to the Wood Grain Kraft Bag.

The doily is one of my Raspberry Tea hand dyed doilies. The lace and flower embellished dress forms and grid labels will be available in the shop soon as well.

Here are the links if you'd like to do some shopping!
