Vintage Shabby for That's Crafty

I have to say vintage shabby is a favourite of mine and I used these gorgeous Justrite cling stamps to make a little shabby zipped purse. Yes I know it's another one but Hubby has decided I have a build of crafty makes so he is going to do a craft fayre later in the year and see if he can flog some of them LOL. So I thought I would make a few more of these type of things. As long as I don't have to stand on the stall as I hate trying to sell things, much rather browse round other stalls and buy stuff.

If you would like to know what stamps I used and how I made the purse please head over to That's Crafty for more details.

I thought I would share a few pictures I took the other evening. We live very close to a nature reserve and seeing it was one evening without rain we went for a stroll and I took these on my phone. It was more or less deserted there and so peaceful.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend. We are off to Devon next week so better pack our macs and wellies. Haven't been there for years so I can't wait for all those yummy cream teas and lots of walking on Dartmoor to try and compensate for all that clotted cream.

Take care & Happy Crafting XX

This is a blog hop

Another gorgeous make Paula! I happen to have those stamps and love them too!! They kind of really compliment the CI ones too I think....

What a supportive hubby you have! Mine just quietly indulges me but I cannot imagine in a hundred years that he would offer to sell some of my stuff.... Love your beautiful nature picks too and enjoy those cream teas lol, well and the walks of course. Hope the sun will shine a little for you!!

That is stunning! Your bags will definitely sell, and I'm not just saying that as I know it can be difficult to sell craft items but these have got so much appeal. How kind of hubby to stand on the stall for you - I would feel the same as you do,

Enjoy Devon, a favourite holiday spot of ours, spent many happy hols in East Devon and on Exmoor (around Dulverton), and you never know, the sun may come out next week.

I will never tire of viewing your stamped purses as they are exquisite time and time again.
They will definitely sell, that is a give. Your hubby sounds as though he is such a lovely guy and so supportive of your artistic endeavours.

You've done it again Paula, another little purse that looks absolutely amazing and perfect for selling. The contrast of the background with the stamps and lace is gorgeous and it has that soft feminine appeal. Such a beautiful creation. Thanks for sharing it at Tuesday Treasures and linking the blog hop.
I would never have thought your photos were taken on your phone, the scenery is remarkably pretty and gives me a real sense of calm. Such a lovely place to explore.
Have a wonderful time away in Devon, I wish you time to relax and reflect and enjoy yourself.
