fabulous shabby trims!!!

i doubt there are very many scrappers out there who aren't eagerly awaiting (read: impatiently drooling over) this luscious trim from American Crafts Dear Lizzy line! most specifically - the gorgeous pink flowers on tulle at the bottom of this card...oh. how. i love it!


but here's the thing: i want it now and i want a lot of it. not necessarily with the other pretty trims on the card. and in lots of colors.

so i did what any tenacious and determined girl would do - i set out on a hunt for a similar trim:) i was immediately taken with this beautiful ivory trim that my niece found on etsy...isn't it gorgeous?!? as soon as i placed my order, i convo'd christi - the owner, and inquired about possibly getting more colors. and she was so responsive and helpful and fast!!! while she did a little research - my gorgeous ivory trim arrived in the mail:)

i grabbed some past layouts of mine and threw them down on the floor this morning to photograph and show you how the trim looks...i love it! now, of course, it doesn't "belong" on these pages cuz they're already finished - but it gives you an idea of size, etc! (sorry - but i didn't take time to edit - i was too excited to share the rest of the story with you!!!)











i ordered the ivory trim - but she also carries black and white...




and here is the really exciting news!!! christi convo'd me last night and told me to check out her new colors....look at what she found!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i think these are simply gorgeous...and i can tell you (after a lot of research) that her prices are sooo reasonable. and no - i didn't know christi before and i have nothing to gain from spreading the word:) but i did warn her that she might need a lot of this...


oooh - i love this and i'm not even a purple-lover




gorgeous salmon color!




my personal favorite: eek!!!



and of course - we must have pink!


would anyone be interested in a link to her shop?!? (just in case - here you go): christi at frogfeathers! she has wonderful customer service and carries other fabulous treasures and trims in her stores:)
happy thursday everyone:)

I am a sucker for trims and beaded embellishments. I can spend a fortune on them with no thoughts on how to use them at the time. Crazy about the shabby roses you have shown. Sea Witch

Those trims are absolutely gorgeous. I'm drooling over those shabby roses, no wonder my blog name is rita's shabby chic rose... Would love to buy some of the pink trim so thank you for spreading the word.

Ooh, I love it all! I have something similar that I found at JoAnns - I used to to trim some curtains a couple of years ago!

WOW! Beautiful flowers, great colors! But, I must say my fave is still the cream.

Thanks for sharing the link, but unfortunately it seems to be offline... Does anybody have a mirror or another source? Please reply to my post if you do!

I would appreciate if a staff member here at vintagepatina.blogspot.com could post it.

Thanks,
John
