EtsyInspired Challenge #50 ~ Mrs. Kwitty's Cottage and a Giveaway

This week's EtsyInspired shop is Mrs. Kwitty's Cottage. This cute little shop has all sorts of stuff in it. She has cute fabric stuff like totes, brooches, memo book covers, cell phone pouches, keychain wallets, tote bags, tissue packets, business card wallets and lots more. She has adorable paper stuff like bookmarks, tags, cards, collages, and garlands. Actually, she has more stuff than I can name. What's amazing is that her shop looks very focused and together. I don't know a lot of shops that can pull that off. I really like her eye for putting different patterns together. Her style is sweet and shabby chic and it comes across in everything she does.

This week Mrs. Kwitty's Cottage is giving out an awesome prize made just for this challenge! It's a sweet little covered notebook with these adorable little set of matching vintage button paper clips. All you have to do to win is go to Mrs. Kwitty's Cottage and pick out any item to be inspired by. Make any creation you'd like and post a link to it right HERE on this post. Have your project linked by next Friday Aug 28 by noon Pacific time. If you upload to SCS or PCP, please use keyword EIC50.

In addition to the wonderful giveaway from Mrs. Kwitty, we have a sponsor this week! Our sponsor is Ildi Co. They have a bunch of really adorable stamps. I hear there are gonna be a bunch more stamps really soon too! They are offering up 3 digital stamps of the winner's choice and a 10% off coupon for their next purchase. So, two awesome prizes!

Go be EtsyInspired!



Here is my card for this week. I was inspired by THIS piece. I noticed that she likes to combine florals and polka dots. I thought that was a cool idea. The stamp is Unity and the designer paper is Stampin Up. I used the GetSketchy sketch from this week for the layout.
