Creating Ephemera Sets

Today I'm sharing a fun Ephemera Set I made
up for my sweet friend, Karen, as a thank
you for the blessing she's been to me in the past couple months!
These sets are perfect for gifting to anyone who enjoys:
~ scrap-booking
~ card-making
~ journal decorating
~ smash books
~ mixed media projects
~ altered art
When creating a set like this, 
it's helpful to use a theme such as:
Holidays (Christmas, Valentines, Easter, etc.)
Seasons (Spring, Summer, Winter, Fall)
Americana - July 4th - Patriotic
Vintage - Retro 
Victorian - Floral - Roses 
Masculine - Lodge - Hunting
Specific Color Scheme
Things to include when making your own ephemera set:
Ribbon/Twine/Lace
Washi Tape
Tags
Clips/Pins
Buttons
Die Cuts
Journal Cards
Designer Papers 
Doilies
Fabric/Burlap
Mini Envelopes 
Tickets

You'll want to visit THIS LINK to see what Karen created with the set I sent her!
She's one talented lady! 
If you don't have the resources to make one of your own, 
but would like to gift one to a
 fellow crafter, grandchild, niece/nephew etc. -- 
I currently have a Valentine themed one available for purchase in my Etsy shop.

Yes, I agree with Lori, good suggestions. Thanks for the link to your pinterest board of free printables. I got hung up there this morning with my first cup of coffee, a fun place to be.
