Introducing: The Couture Collection *a new range of crafting kits*

Hello you.

If you've visited my 'Julie Kirk' Etsy shop  or my 'With Julie Kirk' Facebook page this month then you'll have already met my latest range of colourful, creativity kits ... but if you only drop in to see me here, then you won't be formally acquainted ... so here goes ...

*THE COUTURE COLLECTION* is a range of fashion-inspired accessories kits tailored for use in crafting and gift wrapping and I created them to combine two things which make me happy, creatively speaking, on a daily basis: craft supplies ... and clothes!

There are currently 13 styles available, some of which are unique 'one-of-a-kind' sets and others have more than one kit available in that colourway. One size fits all and each has its own name inspired by a style of fashion through the decades.

Fancy a browse through the racks?
OK then, above, for example, we have images from kits called:
If you visit their section of the shop you can view more images of each pack [front + back] and read about their exact contents too as each one is a unique mix of new supplies, items I've collected over the years and vintage/retro pieces discovered on my treasure-hunting travels.

But, if the pinks and greens above aren't your style ... then how about these more restrained, subtle, and classic colour palettes? Including the most enduring design of all couture ... the Little Black Dress!
And I've saved the most daring designs until last ... these next designs are for those of you who love to experiment with colour and pattern:
There's everything from the soldier-or-circus? style Little Miss Military to  the sparkles from a mirrorball which is the Disco kit in there, each with strong colours and styles to either combine into your existing stash ... or to boldly clash with it.

Both sound like fun to me!


Give your crafty-wardrobe a makeover and pick up a unique, carefully accessorised, hand-selected Couture Collection kit for just £6 ... then use it to:
  • dress up scrapbook pages, handmade cards, mini books, mixed media artworks, 3D projects;
  • create ribbon brooches and hair bows [there are hair grips included in all packs]
  • embellish hairbands, cardigans, bags or cushions; 
  • add a special touch to the gift-wrapping of boxes, bag or envelope - make bows with the ribbons, add buttons and charms with twine and write on the tags and labels.
  • Or ... use them on anything else you feel needs a splash of fashion!
And, finally ... The Couture Collection would make a perfect Mother's Day gift [it's March 10th in the UK this year]:
  • either if you have a creative mother who deserves a chic-crafty treat
  •  ... or if you are a creative mother and would like to drop a hint to an obliging child/partner!

For examples of how I've used The Couture Collection you can:
I'll see you soon ... until then I'll leave you to browse the collection ...
