Siri’s Vintage Kitchen Scale

Pion Design’s new paper col­lec­tion “Siri’s Kitchen” has bold, bright red and blue col­ors with won­der­ful ging­ham prints and vin­tage images.  This project can also be found on today’s Pion Design blog here.  I know this may be an unusual project, but I thought that this new col­lec­tion would be great for alter­ing old-fashioned kitchen appli­ances like this vin­tage stain­less steel scale.  I cov­ered and sealed the body of the scale with the red ging­ham paper.  One scrap­book page in the col­lec­tion is filled with framed images of dif­fer­ent fruits.  I used the rasp­berry image off that page as I had fresh rasp­ber­ries to place in the scale for these photos!

Release of Pion Design’s New Paper Collection Siri’s Kitchen

 I wanted to share with you the won­der­ful new paper col­lec­tion just released by Pion Design called Siri’s Kitchen.   I have some kitchen projects planned with these cheer­ful, vibrant papers that I’m anx­ious to get started on.

This fall it has been five fun-filled years since Pion Design started up, and to cel­e­brate this they are giv­ing away no less than five com­plete col­lec­tions of Siri’s Kitchen in all dif­fer­ent sizes!

If you want a chance to be one of the lucky recip­i­ents of these brand new papers they want you to share the news of this Anniver­sary Give­away in your own blogs and Face­book pages. They would also like you to leave a com­ment on their blog here telling what kind of project you are look­ing for­ward to cre­ate using the Siri’s Kitchen collection.

The give­away is open for entries until Sep­tem­ber 29.

The kitchen is said to be the heart of the home and Pion Design is now wel­com­ing you to step into Siri’s Kitchen. With a scent of home­made jam and freshly baked cook­ies this is a place of warmth and togeth­er­ness des­tined to make you feel at home. Siri’s Kitchen is a paper col­lec­tion inspired by all the things you will find in akitchen of old times; shelves stacked with del­i­cate porce­lain, mono­grammed kitchen tow­els, ripe berries and use­ful labels. So let’s gather at the table and start doc­u­ment­ing those price­less joy­ful moments!

Woven Jeweled Ornaments and Jar

This method of paper craft­ing is super fun and I love the look of woven paper.  I made these orna­ments and jar using Pion Design’s Days of Win­ter papers and this post is also being fea­tured on their blog here today.  The tem­plates, cut­ting files, and meth­ods for woven paper projects can be found on the Paper­ma­trix blog here.  
We took another trip to Lon­don, Eng­land recently and vis­ited the Tower of Lon­don in hopes of see­ing the crown jew­els.  The line how­ever stretched for what looked like miles and was mov­ing very slowly, so I decided not to stand in the line.  I did how­ever, visit Hamp­ton Court and the National Por­trait Gallery in Trafal­gar Square again, and very much enjoyed view­ing the paint­ings of dress and jew­elry dur­ing that period of time, so was inspired to make today’s projects heav­ily jew­eled for a royal, regal look.
