Laundry Day

I have a very quick post to share, a little something I made as a “paper fancy” gift.
The main stamps used are from the recent release from Character Constructions, Blue Daisy collection with the wonderful French Laundry stamp from one of the older collections, a French Laundry set.
This is actually a paper lavender sachet or should that be a lavender, paper sachet?
The image was stamped onto lovely paper from a vintage French Agenda, some of the pages containing beautiful writing.  By stamping onto this paper, I liked the whimsy of the day of the week appearing on the image , as though Mercredi is laundry day (I really should have scheduled this post for yesterday!)
With the sachet being simple in approach, I wanted the tag to be in keeping with this simplicity.   Old denim jeans formed the base, although I did layer it to kraft cardstock for stability and  a place to jot a message.  A sweet vintage button is all that embellishes the stamped and fussy cut Blue Daisy dress, oh, I also stamped buttons.  This smock dress is a cleverly designed stamp because the open design allows for so many possibilities whether under-stated or adding wild, doodled patterns. A great stamp to use with Gelli prints.
That’s Crafty are U.K. stockists for selected Character Constructions stamps, including the recent addition of two sets from the Blue Daisy collection.  If you have any queries regarding availability of Character Constructions stamps, either contact Laura Holland at That’s Crafty or contact me and I will pass your query to Laura.

    Wonderful, sweet and lovely both sachet and tag, you have such clever ideas, my lovely friend. The stamps are wonderful, and the idea of using them onto old French paper, makes the viewer believe it is all from another year , also because of the sepia look it has !! Love the tag, with French laundry, and the old wood pegs , suits it all so wonderfully, Lynne. xx

    Just playing catchup but these tags are so lovely, Lynne. The little bits of lace add just the right touch. And I love those stamps!
