Whats been happening?

Yep, things have been pretty busy here at LRR. Im almost out of buttons again so Im going to have to shut up shop again for a while soon.
I made 200 buttons in one night but the sore fingers are all worth it when I see them all packaged up ready to go to their new homes.
Above you will see a small sample of the labour of love that is Lil' Red Rocket.
3 of my fabrics arrived today and can I just say, Im IN LOVE! I couldn't help but let out a little squeal of delight when I opened the package. They are going to make some really adorable buttons.
Ive also been shopping up a storm again with another 3 GORGEOUS fabrics just purchased today.
That means that so far we will have a total of 11 new button designs for our next shop up date provided that the 2 fabrics on back order arrive on time. YAY!!!
See how much I love you guys. LOL.
In other news you will now receive your Lil' Red Rocket purchases in the new and improved packaging and it will still arrive to you all wrapped up like a cute little present as always.
You will also find a little gift with purchase included for all orders over $5.00 so if you have placed an order with me since the last shop update , keep an eye out for that.
More exciting things are happening in September and we are going to have some celebrations, challenges and prizes for our first birthday in October.
So stay tuned.

So whats up?

There's lots of new and exciting things happening for LRR and boy am I ever busy!
Since the store reopen the response has been really over whelming thanks to every one who made a purchase this week. You guys ROCK!
As you can see from image above, Im working on a new blinky. I just thought the old one was looking a little bit tired.
Ive designed 3 different images so far and Im just tossing up which one I like best.
Its a little time consuming, for instance the one above originally had a blue bike and now that just wouldn't do so I had to change it to red.
Any way when I decide on which one I like Ill create a blinky code so you can all have one for your blog if you want.
Ive also designed some new labels for my packaging and Im working on a new banner for the blog and maybe a make over.

Unfortunately Ive had to order the ink for my printer because they didn't have any in stock so the new bottle tops wont be ready til next week or the following week.
The good news is that I have 2 new sets of really cute vintage flash cards and 5 new and AWESOME fabrics on order and 2 on back order so, we will have another fantastic shop update next month.
There are also some other hand made embellies previously unseen in the store that are now in the planning stages and I hope to have them ready for the next update but Ill keep those a surprise for now.

I also have 4 new sets of lace to add to the shop early next week.

I can hardly believe that LRR will be having its 1 year birthday in the first week of October so stay tuned for a really BIG give away.

OK thats it for me. Ive had waaaaay too many late nights this week and we are off for our little family get away this week end so I guess Ill see you all on Monday. TFL.

22 July 2010

New in store.

These little babies went in the shop today along with some other products that I have previously shared sneaks of.

The felt rounds will be in the shop tonight and I have 4 completely new bottle top designs ready to go as soon as I can get more ink for my printer so hopefully Ill be able to share them with you tomorrow.
Fairies for the girls and some cowboys for the boys along with 2 other designs but Ill show them all later.

20 July 2010

More gorgeous inspiration from the Design Team.

These first 2 adorable LOs by KIM feature the new Peter Rabbit buttons. These guys are 1 1/2 inches and the perfect finishing touch to a baby page or LO.
Stunning work as always Kim. Thanks for sharing them with us.

Next up is this awesome double LO by Leanne.
Leanne has used the vintage childrens book butterflies, Red Retro Floral buttons and a Lil Cutie button which are also 1 1/2 inches and come in both boy and girl sets.
I love every little bit of it Leanne. Thanks for letting me share it here.
Well Im frantically typing up listings and finishing off some new products and I plan to have them all in the shop ready to find new homes by Friday evening.
I think Im in for a few late nights so I best get back to it. TFL.

We are open!!!!

Hi all. I just wanted to pop by and let you all know that we are open again but not all of the new stock is loaded yet.
I will be doing this over the next few days.
I am aiming to have everything new in the shop by Friday.
I will be away over the weekend so if you need to contact me during that time, send me an email or a convo and I will get back to you by Monday.
Ill be back later today with a gorgeous LO by Leanne. So stay tuned. TFL.

18 July 2010

More inspiration from Leanne and a Thank you.

This would have to be one of my all time favourite LOs by Leanne. I just love every little bit of it.
Leanne has used a Lil Cutie button on this LO.
These buttons sold really fast but I have more fabric so you will find more in the shop when we re open.
Im busily getting the new stock ready and Im hoping to push the open date forward a day or so but no promises.
Ill let you know how I go.
While I have your attention Id just like to say a very big THANK YOU to all my loyal customers.
I always strive to bring you the best and freshest new designs to make your creations stand out from the crowd.
Artistic integrity is very important to me and therefore I will never copy some one else's hand made designs so you can be guaranteed that if you see it in my shop I have spend hours sourcing the best and most original fabrics from all over the world for you.
I believe this alone make Lil Red Rocket stand out in the crowd even if other sellers are now producing exact copies my hand made buttons specifically for scrapbooking.
I hope to bring you even more fresh and exciting products in the future and once again
thank you for your continuing support.
It means the world to me.

more sneaks and re open date.

Here's another sneak. The new Mini Yo Yo flowers. These are just so sweet and I cant wait to make some more in different colour ranges so stay tuned.
OK on to the shop and the date for the reopen.
Good and bad news.
My lovely husband has had some last minute holiday leave approved and so Ive decided to delay the opening till the 26th July as I hoping we may get a chance for a little well deserved family get away and this also gives me more time to make and design more stock that looked like they weren't going to be ready in time for the opening.
Ill still be available by email for any inquiries and Im sorry for any inconvenience.

14 July 2010

More Yummy creations from Kim and some sneaks.

First up the sneaks. Lots more vintage labels. I have many more sets with different designs available. These really are a steal at $1.60 for 5. I was doing a little bit of esty browsing the other day when i saw just one of the exact same labels I sell listed for $3.00USD I couldn't believe it. So you see mine really are great value.

More vintage tickets sold in a set of 8. Four pink and 4 turquoise. How YUM are those colours together?

More pretty blooms in a spring mix (the perfect match for the new vintage tickets) and..........................
an Autumn/Fall mix sold in sets of 3. Each bloom is full and pretty with a total of 12 layers.
I have some really cute mini Yo yo flowers to list in the shop too but Ill save them for later.

And lastly but by no means least is this Awesme LO by KIM. Its so adorable I just love it all.
Kim has used one of the new retro boy buttons and a Lil owl button on this page.
The retro boy buttons are 1 1/2 inches round and come in a set with a cute little dog featured on the second button. They will be making their grand debut soon along with a couple of other button designs that I am keeping under my hat til their launch.
Lil owl buttons have been a great seller and I don't have much fabric left so Im on the look out for some funky new owl designs.
OK thats about all the shares for today. Im hoping to have the shop open later this week and Ill be back to let you know when thats done so stay tuned.

07 July 2010

more sneaks and more inspiration.

What would the LRR blog be with out a button sneak. Buttons are still one of our best sellers and I believe our trade mark product.
Im having so much fun with the new sizes we offer and it has opened up a whole new world of 'fabric goodness' to me,.
So here's a sneak or 3 of our newest buttons in the 1 1/2 inch size range.
Peter Rabbit, Retro boy and Retro girl buttons.
I think the Peter Rabbit buttons might just be a new fav for me. I cant wait to make a card for my new sweet baby nephew 'Levi' with one of these little guys.

Ive also been working on some new flowers for the shop. I really like the way these turned out.
They have a generous 12 layers of fabric and netting so they are really full and pretty.
Im hoping to get some more sets in different colours made up before the shop re opens.
So stay tuned.

Now on to some inspiration................

I love this LO by KIM. The peacock feather, the charm, the chippy banner and that splash of red, just gorgeous.
Kim has used lots of LRR goodies on this LO including mini playing card, owl button and a vintage milk top. TFS Kim.

Ill have more inspiration soon from some fabulous customers and maybe something from me too.

05 July 2010

Time for another sneak.....

More sneaks for you today. Just some felt embellishments that have been in the pipe line for a while now. I had hoped to get them in the shop before the last shop update in early June but my supplies were running a little late and so now these lil' babies will be included in the shop update this month.
Being a Mum of boys I understand how hard it can be to find nice embellishments suitable for 'Boy' LOs and I imagine that as they get older this must become even more difficult.
So I have designed these comic book felts with the older boy in mind, although they would still be great on any boy or girl page.
Each felt round is die cut so they are perfectly round and each paper round is cut from vintage comic books.
Felt comic rounds measure 1 1/2 inches so they are a perfect size for a fun card as well.
In the coming days Ill have more felt round embellishments to share, girl and boy designs.
There are more,new fabric flower sets, button designs and a few more secrets yet to be revealed so stay tuned. TFL.
