The Watering Can Collection embodies all that you find in the garden, from the flowers and the soil to the rake and the watering can, it takes all the parts to work together to make the garden grow. This collection blends vintage garden art on a combination of kraft and ivory papers that work beautifully together.
The papers for this collection were designed with different garden themes and in a range of scales making it perfect for crafts of all kinds, including card making, scrapbooking, party decor, invitations, atc, mini books, home decor and just about any other craft project you can think of. Printed with black art, this collection is prime for coloring – bringing to life the florals, greenery, critters, tools and other pieces of the collection.
The first part of the collection is printed on our ivory paper and is perfect for adding color, fussy cutting, die cutting and more. We have a wide offering of black and ivory prints that are great with this collection as well.
The Seed Packets paper is so perfect for making gift tags that say just the right thing. You can use them as they are or…
add color and pop them into a basket of flowers you put together for someone very special. We love how beautiful fresh spring flowers look when arranged in a basket, the perfect teacher, birthday, Easter, Mother’s Day gift or Just Because.
The 12×12 kraft papers in the collection offer a rich contrast to the ivory and are great just as they are with touches of color, we love how the different the colors look when added to kraft and ivory. Adding touches of our black and kraft papers offers nice balance to the beautiful artwork, letting each one stand out.
To bring a little color to this collection we choose green and yellow, but like a garden just about any color grows and works in the garden. These new papers are not only great with The Watering Can collection, but they are also perfect for baby showers, weddings and the greens even work for Christmas, our papers are so fun to mix and match, no telling what combinations you will come up with. We think green and yellow look great with the line, but you can choose any color to suit you style and theme. Check out our entire line of printed cardstock papers.
The papers are so beautiful you can use them just as they are to make a beautiful card like this one Beth Byrd created for us.
You can add color by adding flowers that are real or handmade, like these paper flowers Lynne created with our printed papers and paint to give them watercolor look. We will be featuring this banner in an upcoming blog.

Here is a garden inspired memo board that features The Watering Can Collection. To see the printed fabric in use you can see how beautiful it looks when painted, this was just Glimmer Mist added with a paint brush to create a hand printed fabric look, all created with just a touch of paint. The Birds and Bees on Ivory on cardstock paper makes it easy to fussy cut the shapes out and strong enough to become a pocket. Behind the painted fabric and the burlap are two pieces of cardboard that are perfect for pushpins and so easy to do. Our Chalkstock can be cut into pieces and added into one of the blocks and used to keep important phone numbers (write them with a white pen) or for daily notes and use actual chalk, it will wipe off.
We offer a selection of pre-die cut tags with this collection. The Black and Ivory Herb Tags are nice large tags that are prefect to wrap around mason jars filled with your favorite dried spices or herbs or for wrapping gifts of lavender soap or muffins. The smaller kraft tags were designed to adorn gift packages, add to craft projects or just because. You can add a touch of color or just use them as they are. The Mower tag is 10 tags in one pack and great for the guy or girl in your life who is responsible for cutting the 1000’s of blades of grass in the yard and needs a special thank you.
This fun canvas envelope is filled with Oregano seeds, this is a great idea little gift for a bridal shower, hostess gift or teacher gift when spring is in the air. We love the line with the accent of Avocado burlap.
