Shop News: 13 to 19 November 2021

Hello! This week, I’ve listed three new items in the shop. The first listing comprises of 12 different paper packs created from a 1979 copy of Edith Holden’s The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady. Each pack consists of pages taken from a specific month of the year. You can buy each one separately and they are priced according to the number of pages in the pack. September and December have already sold out though, so don’t delay in bagging your month!

Bursting with beautiful illustrations and fascinating text, these pages would make a lovely addition to any papercraft project. They would also make great birthday or Christmas presents for a papercrafter or journaler. If you would like to see photographs of all the pages from a particular month, please feel free to send me a message via Etsy. You can see the full listing information here.

The second listing added this week is a Vintage Garden themed embellishment kit. This lovely kit contains over 60 journal embellishments that have been thoughtfully created and collated for your use. Made from a mixture of contemporary and vintage papers, these embellishments will bring the beauty of the garden into your projects.

Each pack contains:

  • a variety of tag shapes
  • a variety of banner/flag shapes
  • a variety of label shapes
  • a variety of postage stamp shapes
  • tabs in three styles
  • scrapbook paper scraps (6×3 inches)
  • vintage paper scraps from The Complete Gardener (published 1968) and The Concise British Flora In Colour (published 1965).

You can take a closer look at what’s included over on Etsy.

And finally, this week’s third listing is a Vintage Needlework themed embellishment kit. Just like the last kit, this pack contains over 60 journal embellishments and papers and will bring the timeless enjoyment of needlecraft into your projects.

Each pack will contain the following elements made from a mixture of scrapbook paper and vintage paper:

Shop News: 31 October to 05 November 2021

Hello! Just a quick update this week. The packs of colour vintage photographs that I listed last week, were so popular that they sold out almost immediately! This week, I’ve created some more packs for those who missed out. They are bursting with a fab variety of photographs that have been carefully removed from vintage books. There’s people and places, animals and inanimate objects, with lots of lovely aging. I hope you like them!

To find out more, please visit the shop. Thanks!

Shop News: 25 to 31 October 2021

Hello again! Well, it’s been a busy week in the shop. The paper sets that I listed last week, have been flying off the shelves, which means I’ll be rummaging through my stock and putting together new sets of photos and illustrations, so do stay tuned for those.

This week, though, I have added three new sets of Inspirational Quotes and Sayings. These are the last of their kind, as I have thoroughly mined the book they came from and now the seam is empty!

Each set contains 35 inspirational quotes to add to your journals and/or use a prompts for your writing and art. They’re also great for collage and for adding to mixed media art pieces. These quotes have been carefully cut from a vintage book and thoughtfully assembled to inspire you. Each piece is approximately 13cm (5.5 inches) wide.

Please feel free to send me a message on Etsy, if you have any questions or requests. Thanks! x

Shop News: 18 – 24 October 2021

Hello again! I hope you’ve had a good week. Over the last few days, I’ve been creating and adding some lovely new listings to my shop. If you like to add illustrations, diagrams, drawings, paintings or photographs to your projects, I’ve got just the ephemera packs for you.

There are packs of the following:

I’ve also added some more blank vintage paper packs to the shop as well, so now there are three different sets to choose from:

Everything in the packs mentioned in this post has been carefully removed from a wide variety of vintage books and has been trimmed neatly for your use. Each pack contains at least 50 pieces. As the papers have been cut from old books etc, they will show their age. There may be yellowing, fading, discolouration, wear and tear, pencil and/or pen marks etc, but this all adds to the vintage character and charm of the pictures! Ready to ship.

EBDUK: Life Cycle of an A5 Core Sheet

Life Cycle of an A5 Core Sheet

Hello, stickerators! It’s me, Natalie. For this month’s EllieBeth Designs UK blog post, I wanted to share how I get the most out of one of my favourite sticker sheets: the A5 Core sheet. It’s almost inevitable that not every sticker on a sheet will be used the first time around, so I’ve created a little system for making sure that, ultimately, no sticker is left behind.

Firstly, when my A5 Core sheet arrives, I slip it into a poly pocket and add it to the A5 Core sheet section of my A5 sticker binder. Sometimes, I get an A5 Core sheet as part of a mini essentials kit. When that happens, I add the whole kit to the same poly pocket in the A5 Core sheet section, just to keep everything together.

Next, when it comes time to use the A5 Core sheet, I set up my weekly schedule with whatever stickers I need from it, and then I peel off the excess sticker paper, punch the backing paper and insert it into my bullet journal, so that if I need more stickers during the week, they are to hand.

After that, once the week is done and I have used all the stickers I need, I put what’s left of the A5 Core sheet back into its poly pocket (along with any other sheets from the same collection) and move it to the BACK of the Daily Log section of my sticker binder. This is where I keep my Days and Days sheets and any other leftover sheets that could be used to set up my daily logs.

Lastly, when setting up the daily logs in my bullet journal, I take sheets from the FRONT of the Daily Log section of my sticker binder. Once I’ve finished setting up a week’s worth of daily logs, I move those stickers to the BACK of my Daily Log section. This way, all the different collections of stickers (made up from whatever sheets and leftovers I have) cycle through my sticker binder which keeps my bullet journal fresh and makes sure everything eventually gets used. Once I have used absolutely everything I can use from this section of my sticker binder, I take any leftover stickers and add them to my reusable sticker album, which I keep in my planner pouch. This is very useful, as it means I can grab whatever I need whenever I need it for whatever spread I’m working on.

So, that’s how I get the most out of my A5 Core sheet – and all my sticker sheets really! How about you? How do you make sure no sticker is left behind?

Thanks for reading. Until next time … keep stickerating!
