Trendwatch Tuesday: Antique Labels

How-de-do, crafty neighbors!  I'm aiming for a digression free blog post today.  It would be a miracle, wouldn't it?  Let's get right to it.  I've been scouring the net for hot trends for you.  Here's one I think you'll like.  {As if you've disliked all the previous ones?}

Today's trend is... Antique Labels

There are a serious lot of antique inspired labels out there.  It seems like every new collection I've seen has a set of labels of some sort included either in the paper, the die-cut sheets, or the stickers.  I think it's a trend with staying power.

My current favorites?  You've gotta check out the Apothecary collection from Echo Park papers.  Ah-Maze-Ing!  Look at those awesome labels!


Halloween is coming and these have gotta be coming to my house.  I might actually make something out of them rather than just stare lovingly at them.  It's so hard to cut into the papers and use the stickers I love the most. 


Got a couple more for you, so stick around.  Look at this printed die-cut cardstock label from Little Yellow Bicycle.  It's part label, part frame, part title, and all kinds off wonderful.

I really really heart this mini book in the shape of an Antique Label from Theresa Collins:

Lastly, I love the vintage inspired label die cut shapes from the Jillibean Soup.  It seems like they've got coordinating ones for just about every one of their collections. These ones are the Spotted Owl Pea Pods Gorgeosity!

So, what can you do with your cutter to make vintage inspired lables?  Just about anything!   You can cut them in lots of different materials.  They are the perfect little frames on just about any project.  Why not cut them from vinyl to label your kitchen canisters?
Hey, so how was that for digression-free??

Time to get crafty, people!

Those vintage design labels are adorable. I personally love the red photo frame with the rose. Any photo would look elegant and sentimental in it. =)
