A Little Bit of 7 Gypsies meets October Afternoon

June 13, 2010

Can't tell you how many times I kept picking up the 7 gypsies vintage receipt holder.....not sure if it was because I loved it, or because I proclaim myself a "gypsy girl", and must LOVE everything the gypsies come out with. Well, after the deliberation of "should I, or shouldn't I"..., and having looked at the example at the back of the box...I decided to pair my two fave brands right now.....


So, here it is......and I got to say, I LOVED doing it. It really was a fun project. I have to confess though, that I did draw my inspiration from the back of the box of the receipt holder. The wonderful thing about doing this project is that, I got to use alot of product that I already had, and would not necessarily have used.
So for those of you who have the receipt holder, and are not sure what to do with it.....JUST DO IT.
Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead, filled with sunshine, laughter......and some time to create.


  1. Oh Dena... I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!! You are amazing. I am so stealing it from the store to lift - I mean to CASE it(copy and steal everything) Love love love it!!!

  2. Yours looks much better than the one on the back of the box. Another Dena masterpiece! LOL

  6. Dena, people don't really know how gorgeous this is until they see it live. It is ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING...I love this. I am going to use the receipt holder as an inspiration board.. clips and bits and pieces that make me happy. This is only because I cannot create the masterpiece you did. LOL
