Pink is one of my favorite colors (I blame it on Funny Face, Paramount 1957!) so I tend to collect lots of bits and pieces of it when I’m out and about. But one of my favorite ways to play with pink is in the form of sweet sewing and paper crafting notions! Being February and a perfect excuse for me to indulge my love of pink even more than usual, I thought it would be fun to pull together a Pink Color Story filled with some of my treasures.
The spools are assorted threads by Madeira that I use with my embroidery sewing machine. I don’t use it as much as I’d like to but I sure do love it when I do! I’m hoping to get a few embroidery projects done this spring with this thread! While strolling down the paper crafting aisle at Target, I found these sweet wooden buttons and push pins by K & Co. Too cute to pass up! Michael’s is where I found the vintage key stickers by Martha Stewart Crafts. Finally the fabric is from a sewing pattern that came with one of my issues of Mollie Makes magazine. I just love the little surprises that come with that magazine!
Some peachy-pink pom-pom trim from JoAnne Fabrics and a few conversation hearts complete this little scene. The polka dot cups that are holding the thread are actually Martha Stewart Crafts Pastel Dotted Baking Cups. Love these! By the way, do you like my background paper? It’s actually wallpaper from Lowe’s! I have a roll of it and use it for so many projects other than wallpaper! In fact, I’m working on a couple that I hope to share with you soon!
This group is more of a paper crafting collection… as a base I used my ruffled crepe paper. I’ve had it for a year now and I continue to be in love with it! An ivory floral pin from the Salvation Army that I found for .25 cents adds a nice white relief to the scene.
Next are two more pieces from K & Co. that I found at Target. The “Happy Heart Day” flag and the stitched dimensional hearts. These are so easy to put together I’m thinking up my own version of them for a craft that I hope to share soon too.
My most favorite piece in this group is this “Sweetheart” sachet. I actually hang it on my daughter’s bedroom door. It’s so adorable – just like her! 😀
Do you get inspired by little collections like these too?
I hope you enjoyed this Pink Color Story – it was so fun to pull it together for you!
