Crate Paper Flea Market + a giveaway!




















{Reported by Ashley Harris}



Hello!   SO excited to be here today and share with you my thoughts on Crate Paper's Flea Market by Maggie Holmes.  When this came out I was a little wary because it looked a lot like Maggie's previous line.  For me that was great thing.  I must say when I saw it in person, I was beyond thrilled!  So let's get to it.


What I liked:
-Can I say what I LOVED?  All the gold foil touches are divine.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!
-I really enjoyed the patterns of the paper.  Such a good mix of them.
-I especially liked the mix of the ephemera pack.  FABULOUS!
-The overlays are my FAVE.  MUST HAVE!

What I didn't like:
Nothing.  Nadda.  Zilch.  The end.


What I made:




Supplies:  Cardstock:  Bazzill Basics; All other supplies Flea Market by Maggie Holmes Crate Paper



Where and How Much:
Product:  Flea Market Collection by Maggie Holmes
Manufacturer:  Crate Paper
MSRP: -
Available Online: Currently Unavailable


Bottom Line:  Get it.  All of it.  You will not be disappointed.  It is beautiful and stunning in all ways.


What do you think?  Is this collection something you would like to have or will it end up at the Flea Market?  Leave a comment by midnight EST on Tuesday to be entered to win a Flea Market prize pack!  US residents only and please leave a way to be contacted if you win!!

This whole collection SCREAMS "Tessa". I'm in love with ephemera right now. And overlays/transparencies. And Polaroids. And doilies. And globes And I have those thickers but not in shiny gold... I saw the gold washi tape that was it. I'm sold. If I don't win and have to buy parts of the collection myself, it will be really hard to reign myself in and not buy it all at once :)

This is yet another winner from Crate! Love the gold pieces, love the bows, love the overlays...really the whole collection is gorgeous! I actually like that the Anerican Crafts family of papers has a habit of coordinating lines from season to season - like Dear Lizzy and Amy Tan's collections, this one by Maggie Holmes can use some of the pieces from last season. More ways to play with my stash - and add to it! ;)
Thanks so much for the chance to win!
