My brand new logo for Paper Fashions Boutique!  I was so excited when I saw it for the very first time!  My website is also currently under development so hopefully I wiill get to see some of that soon which I am also very excited about!  If you go to you will see my logo and there is also an area you can sign up to get my newsletter!  What are the benefits to getting the Paper Fashions Boutique newsletter?

1.  You will be the first to know about new project kit releases and when they are available for purchase.
2.  When I have a special in between kit release you will be notified of that as well.

In case you are stopping by my blog for the first time and don't know about my new venture, here is a little information for you.

I am starting a project based kit club.  Each month I will offer on average two brand new kits for sale at the beginning of the month with full step by step color instructions and the supplies to create the project.  You stop by the site and choose the kits you want to purchase.  I will rotate between layout, card, home decor/altered items, and mini album kits.  Each month you will get something differnt.  There is no subscription so you choose the kits you like.  Quantities will be limited and when they are gone, they are gone!  The good news is that once kits are gone I will also be selling the instructions individually so if for some reason you didn't want to purchase the kit, you can come back and purchase instructions!

If you have questions or want to tell me anything at all about this new venture please send me an e-mail.  I'd love to chat with you.  info at paperfashionsboutique dot com

Make sure you are signed up for my newsletter too so you don't miss out on any kits!

Want to win this complete prize package???????????????????????

Ok, I've been busy. Well actually busier than busy if that is possible! I am starting a new online business and I am so excited. Here is the concept-

I am starting a website which will feature monthly project kits. I will feature two kits per month which will be released at the beginning of the month. This WILL NOT be a subscription based site, but buy as you choose! Just know that when the kits are released at the beginning of the month there are a limited number and once they are gone, they are gone!  The kits will come with supplies and step by step instructions all included for you to complete the project.  Once the kits sell out I will most likely sell the instructions by themselves for those folks who didn't want the entire kit because they may already have had most of the supplies.

Now here is what you need to do if you want a chance to win the prize package above. Go to my new website which is and sign up for my e-mail newsletter.  Once you have done that come back here and post.  Once I reach 100 comments on this blog thread I will draw a random winner.  So send everyone you know who is interested in receiving my monthly newsletter.  The faster we reach 100, the faster I choose a winner!  Here is what is in the prize package-

2 complete packages of ribbon
1 Clear Scraps large house album
1 Clear Scraps package of Flowers
1 complete rubber stamp set
2 packages of flowers, one with brads included
Rain dots
Glittered fabric hearts
Cardstock stickers
Rub on letters

Right now my site is set to launch on June 1st!

Also if you have any questions, please post them in the comments or feel free to e-mail me-

Kit Club Update

So much has happened since I asked many of you to complete my online survey about doing project kits online! So I thought I'd give you an update of what I am doing behind the scenes!

First I am not doing an Etsy shop and I am also not doing a blog site...I am going with a regular website! Yeah! I am having a consultation with my web designer this morning and am so excited to get started building my site! I am doing a kit club but it WILL NOT BE a subscription based club. You just visit my site and buy the months you want to. Of course that means if you see something you like you should purchase right away because I will only be making so many kits and when they are gone.....they are gone!

I have been signing up for business accounts, licenses, etc. I've also been signing up with some manufacturers so I can begin to order product. In addition I have my first couple of kits planned out...nope I'm not spilling the beans yet! LOL You will have to stay tuned for some peeks as my release gets closer. I hope to be up an running the beginning of June online! So much to do that my head is spinning.

I plan to keep you updated as I move along in this process. In the meantime I'd appreciate it so much if all of you can get the word out to your crafting friends that I am going to do this. Have them follow my blog for updates! I really want my new venture to be successful! If anyone has any cost effective marketing ideas for me, I'd love to hear them!

Just do it!

Ok, I have made my decision and I have already taken steps to start my own online store selling project kits! Thanks to so many of you for your kind words, taking the survey, and showing so much support. I don't think I could have made this decision without all of you cheering me on along the way. All the positive things you said about my work means so very much to me so thanks to each and every one of you!

Everything right now is in the very beginning stages and I will continue to share with you along the way where I am at in the process. I am trying to get all the legal and technical stuff going and then will have to begin ordering product and designing kits and ordering packaging and shipping supplies and finding a way to print out instructions, and so many things to do!

So stay tuned right here on my blog for more information to come, ok? If you would like to be added to my database for notification about my website and kits please send me an e-mail with the following:

First and last name
e-mail address

Send this info to paperfashions at charter dot net

I will add you to the list and keep you updated!

Two More Questions!

You guys have been such great survey takers and have provided me with an enourmous amount of information. Thanks so much for that!

I do want to ask a couple more questions right here in this post to try to determine what would work best. Post your answers in the comment section and you will be entered into a drawing to win a colorful pack of Prima flowers. I will randomly draw 5 winner, so 5 different Prima flower packs will be sent out!

1. Should I start a blog style store to sell my kits and instructions or should I set up a shop over at Etsy? (If I do blog style store it will be a new blog only for this purpose)
2. If I started kits now aimed at Holiday gift giving would you purchase now to get started creating or would it be too early for this?

Thanks everyone and I will do a random draw for this post next week Tueday. So you have some time to post here for the random drawing!



First a million thanks to each and every one of you for taking my survey. I have a lot of excellent feedback and will read and consider it all! You are all so wonderful for helping me out with this and I wish I could send each of you a prize package! I do have a couple more questions for you as a result of the survey and will post them to my blog in the next day or two. I may have a few small prizes to give away to folks who post answering those questions so please check back! Most likely I will be posting it this stay tuned.

The winner of the survey prize pack is.....

Viji Siddharth

Congrats and please e-mail me at lfalduto at charter dot net with your mailing address so I can get your prize pack off to you. And since we hit 71 posts, I will be throwing in 4 extra items for you!
