One of my very favorite things is to collect all sorts of things that work well together, put them in a fun container and offer them to you as a product collection or kit.
Today, I have TWO such offerings...and they are as different as night and day...or black and white...or (you fill in your favorite here but you get the point :)). Let me introduce you to what I have and let the collections speak for themselves. And, speaking of black and white...drumroll, please...please allow me to present:
THE ULTRA CHIC BLACK/WHITE/IVORY COLLECTION!
Yum, yum, yum! This color combo is a big favorite with the creatologie fans, for sure. I've gone through my boxes, trunks and baskets and found some of the coolest black and white trims and fabrics, a few embellishments and a hand created houndstooth cloth book, AND A TRUNK...JUST FOR YOU!
OK, what's in this delectable collection?
It starts with a highly distressed shabby black metal trunk with its fair share of dings and scratches. The trunk is 12x8x5 3/4 and I know that you will love it for its display properties, not to mention the storage possibilities! I've filled the trunk with 48 pieces of trim, each at least 1 yard in lengh and some with 2-3 yards for your creating pleasure. You will find lace, printed and plain twill, printed and plain grosgrain, trims made in France, satin, rayon binding and velvet as part of the collection. There's also some vintage rick rack (you will love how SOFT the pieces are) as well as other vintage lace and trims.
Also included in this fabulous collection is a bundle of 14 fabrics. They vary in size and shape, but each is large enough to be usable. You will find lace, embroidered cotton, printed quilting cotton and wool in this beautiful collection.
And, oh yes, I did mention the houndstooth cloth hand made book. Well, take a look at this ultra chic goodness!
The exterior and interior covers of this 8 1/2 x 11 (approx) hand made book are made from houndstooth canvas and the remaining 12 interior pages are solid natural canvas. The black organza flowers are just a design idea...they are included but are just temporarily pinned in place, which makes for easy removal to work up your very own creative cover.
For this collection, I also provided a few fun embellishments and 10 delightful appliques, including collars, a square, a shield and a flower. The little embellies are packaged in a black and clear damask zippy bag which you can use for storage after you've made your project.
If you love what you see and you just have to make this delightful collection yours, I'm offering it for just $167, plus shipping (within the US only, sales tax included for AZ residents). When you see what's included, you will have to agree that it's an exceptional value...and exceptionally chic, too!

FOR A STUDY IN CONTRASTS, PLEASE ALLOW ME TO INTRODUCE THE NEXT OFFERING...COLOR ME HAPPY!
This one is sure to make you smile!
I envision this one as a possible holiday gift for a daughter or granddaughter who loves color...or maybe something for you to brighten up a corner of your studio.
This collection includes a "I Start, You Finish" class sample, a very fun and funky apple green lunch box, fabrics, trims and flowers.
The album is a 9 x 8 1/2 heavy chipboard 3 ring binder decorated with lots of bling and bright, happy colors. There are 16 interior surfaces and each one of them is decorated with at least background papers, many of them have a lot more. You will love finishing this one with your pictures and journaling and the trims, fabrics and flowers I've included in this collection.
The metal lunch box is slightly distressed with a few pings and dings. It has a beaded handle which would be so much fun to embellish. It might be a fun project to further distress the lunch box with some sandpaper and a bit of white gesso...hmmmm, everything we touch is alterable, right? :)
I've included 25 bright and happy trims in this lunch box. Most of them are at least a yard in length and many of them are ones I purchased in my travels around the country...I'm delighted to share them with you!
The trims include hand woven, uniquely patterned trims, funky elastic, grosgrains (mostly printed), chenille, tulle, ball trim, and rick rack.
There are five delightful fabrics in this collection as well. Three of them are brightly colored organza...yum!
You will also find two collections of flowers...stitched, brightly colored felt and wonderful paper flowers. Yummy!
Color yourself happy with this book, lunchbox and trimmings...all for just $87 (plus shipping in the US/sales tax for AZ residents). And yes, that's not a typo...it's a REALLY great value!
