Gypsy Rose Paperie is sharing a unique approach to paper crafting with their brand new “Gypsy Kits”!
Gypsy Kits are built around rare, classic elements delicately complemented by the latest industry releases. Designers spend months collecting bits and baubles that have been tucked away in niches and corners; notions unloved and forgotten by time itself, now destined for new purpose as the cornerstones in their exotic Gypsy Kits. These beautiful bundles of inspiration are overflowing with found objects of all kinds, from heritage laces and vintage German glass glitter to antique fabrics and imported textiles.
Taking inspiration from publications like “Somerset Memories,” “Belle Armoire,” and “Altered Couture,” Gypsy Rose Paperie offers paper crafting collections with an artful combination of bold personality and obvious feminine grace. Their heritage art kits give you the resources to create an unforgettable legacy of unique beauty. If you’ve been looking for a paper crafting kit that begins with vintage supplies (seam binding, ric-rac, antique sheet music, cabinet cards, textiles, collage items and many others) and complements those pieces with modern products, this is it!
You’re invited to peruse their website this week and participate in a blog scavenger hunt for your chance at one of twenty five RAK’s – these include collage images, vintage lace bundles, and imported textiles and beads, among others.
While you’re there, set your sights on their gorgeous “strip-teases,” delicious peeks and hints showcasing their upcoming kit releases. “Haute Couture,” is exactly what its name implies – only the best in color, texture, quality, and attitude. Think fall with bold colors, distressed textures, a little grunge and a little sparkle. Look for this release during Paris Fashion Week, and click here for more tantalizing strip-teases!
“The Masquerade,” a wickedly beautiful combination of papers reminiscent of Edgar Allen Poe’s famous classic, can be seen here. It’s your ticket to a Victorian Gothic celebration of the harvest season. Black velvet, lots of glitter, silky-soft feathers, and of course, a special kind of mystique you won’t find anywhere but Gypsy Rose Paperie.
This week they’ve also announced the addition of a weekly creative team, providing inspiration with a series of free ephemera downloads you’re encouraged to print and use in your own artwork! You can view some of their beautiful projects here. They’re also pleased to confirm the selection of two supremely talented guest designers, Jennifer Priest and Oddbjorg Ringsby.
If you’re tired of the “unique” paper crafting opportunities you’ve been afforded thus far, stop in and see what Gypsy Rose Paperie has to offer. You won’t be disappointed!
