the NEW ticket holder GIVEAWAY!

Ready for a few more peeks at what we released at CHA?

How about a closer look at our cha-buzz-inducing-gotta-have-it ticket holder coming this April.

When we first saw this tucked away in one of our favorite euro antique spots we knew we might be on to something....

There were so many things to love from its worn wooden base to the carefully hand-coiled springs gently holding fat stacks of ruffled transit tickets.  It smelled of old papers, musty wood, a tinge of inkiness... it carried the allure of distant journeys and curiosity of where each of those tickets had whisked passengers off to.  

We wanted it.  And we knew we had to share it with gypsies everywhere.



So we brought it back to the workshop and imagined.  What kinds of memories could be tucked behind the coils?  Could our ephemera cards and findings fit? What about photos and recipes? How big could they be?  Just how could creative gypsies use this?

We imagined something like this....

layers of tiny tickets, trinkets and tags


or maybe this...

big 8x10 photos, juxaposed with ephemera pieces and tiny bits


we figured we'd need to create some inspired tags and tickets to fit perfectly in the ticket holder like these...

retro train tickets


months of the year tickets



or lucky #7 tickets?


they look darn cute adorned with rubbings and label stickers...



What will you do with your ticket holder?    

Post a comment that inspires us and we'll pick our favorite to win a prize pack that includes a new ticket holder, tickets and a mini ephemera set!

Comments must be posted by midnight Thursday, February 18th.  We'll announce the winner on Friday!

This is AMAZING. I would love to use this as a countdown for the end of a deployment. Now that my son is old enough to understand numbers and the days of the week, I think this would be perfect.

kelly lautenbach said...

Love love love... I've got lots of "brand new grandson" ephemera that would be so cool in there!

mindy gallagher said...

These are awesome! I want to get one to use as an inspiration holder for when I'm working on a project, or stuff that I've got that tickles my fancy! So I can mount it to my creative space & make it snazzy! :D

Lita said...

I'd love to use it as an inspiration station of sorts. Im always finding bits of paper, fabric etc with patterns and colours that make me want to create, and i think this would be a great way to dipslay those kinds of things that just make a crafters heart happy!

Teresa said...

I'd love one of these ticket holders to display the ATCs from our monthly group meeting. It's a shame to just shove them in a book - I'd love to have them out so I can see them for the whole month.

Sandy Davis said...

This ticket holder is awesome, and I love the "months" tickets. The holder would be great for displaying special ephemera items.

Denise said...

Love your new vintage ticket holder! It's such beautiful home decor. I want to decorate one with cream lace along the bottom and show off some Vintage ATC cards with pictures of my family. I think it would look great in the kitchen :)

Anonymous said...

This ticket holder is AWESOME! I would use this to secure little cards of Scriptures that I want to memorize. There are many, many comforting Scriptures that make my day, and I would love to jot them down and clip them on this ticket holder!

Gypsy Lady said...

I see this hanging in my kitchen with the day's menu and recipes on it!! Love it!

Nancy said...

I LOVE this!!! LOVE IT!!
and, me, inspire you? I'm liking all of the ideas I'm reading here - the tickets - as an inspiration station (that one gets my vote!) - to hold pictures of all of my amazing grandchildren, along with their artwork & notes to us - oh! for my daughter to have all of her concert & movie tickets where she can see them (they're on a bulletin board in her old room) - oh! to hold some Truth Cards from Soul Restoration! YES! Quotes, inspiration pictures ... ok, I need more than one of these! Now, please?

jengd said...

I'd like to use this as an advent/countdown calendar for my son for a variety of events and holidays- Valentines, Easter, end of school, birthday, start of school, Halloween, Tgiving, Christmas... whatever else I can think of.

Dale Tiernan said...

It would make a great daily job chart. There are 7 spaces and 7 days of the week.

Jenny Lilac said...

I just received a beautifully hand-carved tree that I'm going to put on my mantle - I would put the ticket holder next to it!

Karen Wilson said...

I saw this and instantly pictured the pictures of my son with a family heirloom vintage car his father has...with loads of tickets...vintagey fabulous!! Oooh heaven!

MandyKay said...

THIS.IS.AWESOME.
I can see mine holding keepsakes from the month...photo booth pics, stubs, cards, love notes...

Hayley said...

Oh my goodness! I love love love it! I would put it on a shelf in our kitchen for fun pictures, postcards, really anything to celebrate our every day. But, I look to you all for inspiration since 7 Gypsies and Memory Lane changed how I document memories!

Dagmar said...

Truly great find...I am inspired by all things around me,outdoors, inside, colors, paper, magazines, music, books..you could take any of these and be creative! There are so many more things..but my most favorite is thrift stores..by buying in a charity store, someone has a job, and an old doily or tablecloth is re-loved!! Is that a new word?

Bohemian Gypsy said...

I would love to use it for pics taken of my grandbabies during each month to just look at and remember and smile and then design pages for their albums using of course one of my all time fav paper packs Victoria and some ephemera. I would love to have another one for positive affirmations just for me. And then another one in the kitchen for handy hints, fav recipes, phone numbers etc. I just love the whole concept of this ticket holder. Man the Gypsy team just get bigger and better ideas. . .thankyou so much.
Hugs
Michelle

Marva said...

Oh this would be so awesome to hold ATCs and 4x4 pages with your ephemera tickets and tags!!!

auntdeedee said...

Yummy! That's how i feel when i see some new neat toy to play with...it's YUMMY!! As soon as i saw the month and number tickets, i would use it display and honor the birthday honorees of that particular month. Going through and working on our family heritage i can actually incorporate older generations along with the new. And this way it's a new look each month!!! Yup....totally YUMMY!!!

Anonymous said...

Tina M
OOHHHHH, I LOVE THIS.....I would use it as an inspiration/love stand! It would be perfect for holding pictures of our kids and grandsons who we treasure, and the little love notes my husband & I leave each other, our schedules are so different sometimes all we get for a day is love "words"! Thanks for the chance.

Dawn-Marie said...

I'm loving this! I would use it to countdown to memorable events that are happening in my boys' life. Like Scout Camp, Youth Conference and their birthdays!

Kerstin Bulin said...

This is wonderful, i´m from germany and i hope i can buy your stuff here, it´s very hard to find it here.

Kerstin from germany

Lacey said...

How FANTASTIC is this! Love the idea and the tickets. Would look fabulous on a fireplace mantel. My Birthday is thursday (17th) - crossing my fingers to win! Thanks for a chance and fabulous products!

MaRyKaY said...

Totally love these. I think it would be cool to have one to display my child's yearly school pics for the last 6 or 7 years progressing a year every slot, then starting anew at the end each time. Also would like to have another for the kitchen counter top to hold recent favorite recipes. I dont think I could have just one.

Suzanne said...

I love this! I'd use it to hold misc current favorite bits and bobs... a little lace maybe, some paper ephemera definately, and something with glitter on it for sure!

pballard said...

Hmn~ Saturday I turn 39! I think I would use it for a countdown to 40! I would like to journal more for the last year of my 30's. Thanks for the chance to win... Pam

eric and denise costa said...

I would use this to keep the weeks appointments, errand, and shopping or weekly menus. This is so stinkin cute LOVE IT !!!!
Thanks for a chance to win
Denise

Susan said...

Oh my gosh - this is gorgeous! It would be a great ATC holder or a memorabilia holder from a special trip!
Susan

Scrapamum said...

Pick me! Pick me!!! (Jumping up and down waving hands).
I would love the ticket holder. I'll be honest I probably won't use it to hold tickets but probably to display some cool vintage photos I have of my family.

Rhonda V. said...

What an original concept - so CUTE!!! I'd use it to stage my next projects... gather up embellies and photos and mish mash them all together to inspire me!

I love the idea of storing all my ephemera tickets and yummies in this too!

Vic said...

It's fab! I'd love to doll it up and use to "stage" my cards & tags for photographing.

Paper Pile Kitten said...

I love that amazing ticket holder! And those tickets are awesome!

ona_i_ja said...

This is aweoseme idea. W would love to use as holder my ATCs and Tags :))

Hugs

Nancy Wethington said...

Love at firswt sight! This is to-die-for-wonderful. A few ATC's, a couple of photos, one or two vintage letters in envelopes with some 7 Gypsies tickets - ahhhh heaven.

Cristina said...

I love this! I have been thinking of making an inspirational piece that says "make something pretty today" because between work and a crazy life I cannot get crafty every day and seeing that pretty creation on my desk would make me smile and keep me going until my next crafty time. :)

Anonymous said...

I could keep my bills organized and ready to pay BUT in a way that I enjoy looking at them. I would put my vintage postcards in the seven holders and the bills behind them along with lots of decorative ephemera. It is smll enough to put on my desk and could hold a lot of things that are now piled up and NOT cute. Mary

Christina Aiton said...

This is such a super idea - I am thinking I would use it like an inspiration board for my work table - I would fill it with color and photo inspirations for holidays and/or other times of the year - like now - lots of greens for St Patrick's Day and for Spring. thanks for the chance to win.

Scrapthat said...

I would do a "What inspires me" catcher...most likely it will hold pics of my DD and Daddy and me together but not limited to that...maybe day trips and ephemera. I could change it up on a regular basis.
I love the look of the wood and wire together!! Here's hoping I get lucky on this one!

Candy C said...

I saw these at CHA and immediately fell in LOVE with them! I am a huge fan of 7 Gypsies and would love to mix some of my grandchildren's pictures in sepia and add some of 7 Gypsies ephemera to create a lovely "vintage" display.

Inkqueen said...

OHHHHHHHHH I LOOOOOOVVVVVEEE IT!
I cant wait to get that on my desk at work. I can see a lovely collage with lovely bits of ephemera tucked every which way! Do we really have to wait until April?

Larajc said...

I would make 7G's inspired tags to display in my home!

April said...

This is fabulous!! I think I would use it to hold different quotes each week. Quotes that would inspire me to keep going when things are hard, or to remind me to appreciate each and every day I have, or to hug my little ones tight every chance I get. All those little things that make me smile and remember how blessed I am. :)
- April W

JulieB said...

I think I would use it like a family notice/message board. Each family member could have their own space and phone messages or reminders about tasks etc could be popped behind their faces. The space in front of their faces could be decorated with little pieces of memorabilia which represent the members personalities...tiny vase of flowers for the gardener in the family, bat and ball for the sporty types...musical instruments and tiny rolls of sheet music for the musicians.Possibilities are endless...especially considering how much beautiful Gypsies ephemera there is available.

Babsarella said...

Oh WOW!!! It is awesome!! I would use it to create an inspiration "board" and fill it with all sorts of things that make me smile and will inspire new creations.

Dimitra said...

What an inspiration. All the photos and memories can be constantly exchanged to suit my mood. Love it !

kate said...

I Love 7 gypsies! How awesome! I would so use it for my crazy obsession with tea. I would alter it with your beautiful paper, add some lace and embellies and then put some of my favorite tea bags and most used recipes on display with a few pieces of ephemera mixed in here and there. I have just the spot on my new kitchen hutch.

Lindy said...

AWESOME!!!! This is just wonderful. I'd use it to counttown different events for my daughter. Valentine's Day; Easter; her birthday; Halloween...things like that. Thanks for the wonderful chance.

Anonymous said...

WOW!!! It's so amazing! I would olove to countdown to events with the kids with this one - it's perfect!!! Dena

Debby said...

Oh, I would love to use this as a place to display the cards I have created or as a docking station for all of the great 7gypsies stuff I accumulate so it is all together in my line of sight- inspiring me to create!

Hollie Haradon said...

This is so cool! I would love to have it sitting on my desk and fill it with photos of family and little pieces of artwork from friends. It would be my little island to remind me of whats most important to me.

Theresa said...

First of all, let me say that this is so amazing!! I can't wait to have one in my house.....I would take it and put it in either my kitchen on the table to catch all those little bits: buttons, tags, notes, and pics that are dropped on the table and sit there....If that didn't work out, I would put it in my living room where it would continue to "catch" all of those little bits that get left behind in there...tags, receipts, photos, and notes that sometimes get forgotten! I LOVE this thing.

Jingle said...

I would so love to create a series of related ATC's and display them with this in my home! It would be perfect! I've been really drawn to my yoga relating to my art lately and this would be a wonderful way to express that connection in a gorgeous display in my home to serve as a reminder!

Nathalie Thompson said...

What Pack Rat would NOT endorse this super gizmo?! (certainly not ME!) Old wood, old metal, springy clips? SwOoon!

This ticket holder would be completely at home in my studio holding the day's (the week's, the month's) gleanings or the specific pieces I am using in a current project and need to set aside (organized!) to come back to later.

Kids and meals always seem to need attention in the middle of inspiration...

I might NEED SEVERAL ticket holders to create permanent assemblages!

Carol said...

AMAZING! The holder would fit prefectly in my old home. What a perfect way to hold/display postcards & pics that my grandfather sent to my grandmother during the Vietnam war. Thank you for the chance to win.

Annette said...

oh my goodness...really???!!! i sooooooo want/need one!!! :) i love what you guys keep showing up with! thanks for all the creative 'toys' !

bluejn said...

how fantastic! i would put family pictures in sepia and aphemera, but i love that you can hang metal charms from the metal holders

Becky Handforth said...

I would use this to display the wonderful ATC's I am getting from around the world. I would change the cards for the different seasons.

Michelle*G said...

There are lots of ideas that come to mind (LOTS!), but I really think I'd love to use this for a year in review display piece. Something I'd update every month with last month's pictures, thoughts and other daily stuff. I'd love to see what it'd look like at the end of the year!

Donna said...

I would stuff it full of precious keepsakes, swatches, pictures,schedules, favorite blog sites, tickets, cards, layer upon layer. Thank you for your sweet blog!
Donna

Midwestern Sewing Girl said...

What a wonderful product!!!! As soon as I saw it I though of some old handwritten recipes I have from my Great Grandmother...her writing was beautiful and the recipe cards are so old & vintage-y...;) I think these would be beautiful displayed in a ticket holder in my kitchen where everyone can see them. I would probably add beautifully colored seed packets to them as well as decoration for the spring & summer months...;) The possibilities are endless! Thanks so much for the chance to win!

IndyCinD said...

One for my grandkids for "job of the day" cards. One for my daughter to display pictures and ephemera from her kids. And a couple for me to show off ATCs and use as an Inspiration Station!

milkcan said...

I think the ticket holder looks like the perfect place to put brand new supplies I want to remember to use. I can imagine it sitting on my desk, tempting me to break into the packages of buttons and flowers and bling!

Robyn said...

This is the coolest thing ever! I have never seen this before so I was so excited to see it in your release! What can go in it - anything and everything! Photos, ephemera, artwork of paper flowers...my mind is spinning! LOVE it!!

MvM-design said...

I just love it!!
you can better ask what I don't want to do with it..... nothing!!
:)))
I love to mess with it... like I always do with everything :)
Hope I win!!
Hugs Marleen♥

Debby said...

I went on a European trip last year with my son. I still have receipts and some small pictures of us that would look perfect in this piece! Would love to have the chance to win this one!

Olivia M. said...

I think it would be great for pictures and little notes. Or even something to hold some inspiration or something. Another fun item to put on the ever growing wish list.

julie said...

Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous! your ideas never end and I absolutely love all your gypsy stuff. ;-))

Queenie said...

Loooove it!!!

I love packaging,packaging, packaging and yours are the "best"..
i have kept each packet i have ever bought from 7 Gypsies....
what can i say i love to look at them,lol,now i could add pics and display my package collection along with fav scraps of papers and fabric..the list is endless!!

Thanks for the inspiration and the chance to win.

Renee said...

your new release is just drool worthy.

I would use this to put up a monthly view of same time last year ...I think it would be a fun way to change out lots of photos to view.

Dolly said...

Ou I'd use it in the kitchen to display old recipes and foodie pictures! Maybe that will inspire me to bake more often!

That is a wonderful find, I love it!

Smiles, Dolly

DeeDee said...

Great job on the remake of the ticket holder!!! So far we've been really great about taking photos of the new addition to the family, I'd love to set the ticket holder on a shelf above the crib with all the photos from birth, Gabe's own little time line!

Romy said...

Oh wow, this looks amazing! I totally love the ticket holder. I think I'd decorate it with lots of romantic papers and embellishments and then add pictures of my parents to it...it would make a wonderful gift for their 20th wedding anniversary next month.

Jacquie said...

I love making tags, and little vignettes of layered prettiness on paper. I would SO use this to display these beautiful creations!

Chris T said...

Well what COULDN'T you use this versatile ticket holder for! All of the lovely ideas mentioned here and that's the key!-one week a memory and photo holder, the next a 7 gypsies ephemera collection, and on and on. It would be whatever inspires you each week, each month. It is portable and easy to change as you wish. Fabulous item.

amandajane said...

I love the month tickets! I would add a few photos and some ephemera each month, then as I update each month I would scrap a page with the previous month's bits.

Crafty Me said...

I love the new ticket holder. I can think of so many uses for it including my University of Tennessee tickets along with pictures from the games and other orange and white ephemera. It could change during the Olympics to hold my favorite sports schedule, pictures of my favorite athletes and little sports related items.

JJ Sobey said...

gorgeous! I might need two! This would be really cool for ephemera from a favorite vacation.

gm glimmerglass said...

The Vintage Ticket Holder would make a beautiful and practical way to display an entire spectrum of ribbons!

With space at a premium in my studio, I am tempted to get a few, flip them over and mount them to the wall.

Those 7 little clips say, "ROY G. BIV" to me! In fact, they may get a personalized label saying just that.

Anonymous said...

Love, love, love it! I picture it sitting on my counter in the kitchen holding family & friend photos, well worn favorite recipes, reminders to get milk and bread, list etc. Love, love, love it!!!

Janet Weser

Train Wreck said...

What a fun little piece! I myself love to work with your products you have such a great style. I even use your packaging in my work I love your little Gypsy truck. So this would have to be on my table holding my next pieces of paper,cards,scrap etc to add to my next piece. Thanks for asking;)

Tona said...

I think that I would put it up on my mantle & change it out each month with different photos of that months happenings maybe adding a movie ticket stub or a ferry ride ticket, a little glass vile holding a a small flower that bloomed that month, or one of your small jars with some sand from a beach trip etc. I guess it would become my "monthly memories" holder lol.

Anna Maria said...

I would love the ticket holder as a place to put all my Italian postcards and pictures of my Italian family. I have just discovered my family and they have been sending pictures of homes where my father and grandfather were born. I haven't been to Italy to meet them but the journey has begun with the pictures.

kim said...

OMG I am in luv!!! this is awesome I have so many ideas for this little beauty

Anonymous said...

I would post all my fav projects done with all my fav 7 Gyppsy papers,emphera, embellies and such.

j.leija said...

i love anything that helps me incorporate scrapping into home decor. this is too lovely!

jan said...

You could mount it upside down and hang art pieces to dry~!

Rhayne said...

I would use it as a place to hold the secret notes I share with my children. Right now we use a hidey bit of cupboard but the kitties like to play in there and they've been known the eat the notes. Apparently, dogs may eat your homework but kitties will only eat your love notes :)

Deborah said...

I've never seen a ticket holder, so cute too, so many uses. I would hang it upside down to hold bits of lace an ribbon so it would be easy to see what I have as left overs to use instead of digging around in a box for stuff.

Jax said...

So many possibilities. When I saw it, I immediately knew I would use it to hold instax photos. My daily craft: spend a few minutes choosing my photo and dress it up with rub ons, epherma, trinkets, etc., put it in the ticket holder, and watch it grow and grow. Not only will it proudly display photos I love, but it'll also function as a way to develop crafting techniques. Yes. I like this a lot.

Tracy said...

Now that I can breathe...oh my how I love your stuff!!!!! I would sit this on my window sill with a few tickets and maybe an ATC card made with gypsy goodness. Thank you for the chance to win!!!

carriep said...

So fun!
I love the idea of current photos, to be changed out on a whim.
maybe cards of the season, vintage, ...

Domenico said...

As a brand new freshman in high school, this little beauty would be perfect for displaying all the memorabilia i'm collecting, or maybe a fantastic way to organize my week.

camille said...

I hope I am not repeating anyone as I didn't get an opportunity to read everyone's.
However, i would use the ticket holder to hold my goals. I have two lists of goals: one goal list is for 2011 where the goals are somewhat achievable and then there is a second goal list that is one day goals filled with the sky's the limit goals.

domslittleshop.com said...

wow i would love to have this amazing ticket holder. why well i guess because i would cherish it everyday. it would sit on my work shop desk, where i could place my thought on to tags and tickets and place them in the ticket holder. then at any given time of day or night i could read them and put them into a plan. weather it be a altered book or scrap book page, a new design or a lovely poem, or a photo i found and put away for later. they would all be at my finger tips. so yes to win this would be just amazing. good luck to all and thankyou for the lovely prize.

Jem said...

This is fab, and I have the perfect use for it. It's time to start thinking about sowing seeds in the greenhouse and if I had this I could have the seed packets displayed on this each week so I wouldn't miss sowing any.

Scrappy Do said...

I would use mine for work, to hold post its, and all those little notes that I have laying around my desk, actually I think I need would need to buy another one for scrappy table to hold all my journaling tags, which is my latest obssession.

Linda Waite said...

I love the new ticket holder you can use it in so many ways and then change it when you want. I love your creativity it is so exciting to see your project ideas.

{VICKI} said...

I LOVE to display photos of my son and this would be PERFECT!

Shay said...

Another clever product! I would have it hold the ATCs I receive from my monthly trade, plus anything else that catches my fancy. Thanks for the chance to win.

Caroline said...

Just another wonderful product, love it!

I would use it for my brainwave notes and the little love notes my husband and I write to each other... It has so many uses and it is already such a nice item to look at.

Caroline

Isa Creative Musings said...

My daughter is a huge twilight fan and has kept her movie tickets and other memorabilia, including pictures of her friends when they go see the movies. This ticket holder could be her twilight display to hold pictures and memorabilia.

TNChick said...

sitting at my desk, nose pressed to the screen drooling...ah this is my favorite time of the year...all of the releases...mentally planning what I can do. LOVE the new ticket holder...a great collage scape to recreate all of the time..

Tobey said...

Hmm, think I would use it for recipes and menus and shopping lists in my kitchen, it is so darned cute!!!

Lillian Child said...

I would definitely use these to hold handmade embellishments that I like to have within reach for my cardmaking creativity. What a fabulous product!

Erika M. said...

I'm thinking I would make a memorial to my mother who passed away recently!

Anonymous said...

I collect antique ephemera, and Iwould use it to display some antique postcards I have that I would like to show off, I could change it as the seasons progress, such as Valentines Day, St Patty's etc. Thanks for the giveaway
Debbie dscog@verizon.net

Vicky said...

I LOVE the ticket holder it's so darn clever! I think i would put it on my art desk and use it to put in little (or large) clippings and photos that inspire me.

Alice Meares said...

this would be a fantastic tool to display antique postcards and/or seed packages.

Mandy said...

This would be an awesome addition to my mantle with all kinds of family pics and ephemera. Thanks for a chance to win!

Dio said...

Oh, I need one!
Am planning on putting pictures of each of our six kids, with school play and concert tickets that they have taken part in behind their photo, and then a photo of my husband and myself in the middle with "date" tickets behind us from when we occasionally get a break from six kids!

gail said...

LOVE IT, LOVE IT! The new ticket holder is fabulous. I recently was given vintage photos, receipts from the family farm, and miscellaneous ancestral documents and would love to use them with the ticket holder to honor the my husband's French side of the family.

Katy Young said...

I'd have to use it to display my kids and my dog! Love it!

Jeannette said...

Wow...so many possibilities! My first thought is to use it to display some of my "do-dads" as my husband calls them....actually, they are vintage paper items I have collected through the years.

Tina said...

Oh My Gosh...I SOOOO have to have this!!! I think it would be awesome to use this to display 7 of my favorite quotes, as a daily reminder! You guys ROCK!!!!

Carey B. said...

I would use this in my Halloween room to display all of the adorable Halloween cards I receive and can never get myself to throw away but never know where to put. Thanks for always firing up my inspiration furnace!

Tamara said...

THIS IS SO COOL!!!! probably one of my favorite things yet! i'm drooling for the holder AND the tickets and goodies!

Angie said...

so cool, i would use it as an inspiration board it would hold pictures and little bits of things that i have planned for scrapbook layouts.

katschriber said...

i would need two of these. one for my kitchen to hold and sort my coupons, one for my craft room to hold my 'ATC's. i love it!

katschriber

Angie said...

really neat,
i would use this like an inspration board front and center on my desk
it would hold the pics that i`m wanting to scrapbook as well as little bits i have planned for that layout.

gongyandsquish said...

You've done it again! I would change out the ticket display with the seasons/holidays...using lots of vintage goodies, family photos and found treasures! Thank you for continually inspiring me!

Charity Becker said...

SO Love this ticket holder! I would use it to hold the assorted items I find when digging through my stash to create a masterpiece. It would be so easy to slip each item in and see how they complement each other!
Just as easy to put it all away and re-fill for my next project.
A must have for this Gypsy!!!

Anonymous said...

I would probably display on my 'bar counter' with family photos and any cards we receive. I have a hanging Xmas card holder still up & using to display our vday cards. Like that it doesn't look too xmassie that I can use it all year

Bambi said...

This ticket holder is INCREDIBLE. I would use it to hold things about our new home we just moved into. I love 7 gypsies. This looks like it belongs in my house.

kenna said...

My husband and I will have an empty nest in a couple of months and I think it would be fun to display all of the fun things we do together in the ticket holder.

KyleCMC said...

I gotta have it... it is calling to me! Watching the CHA videos with all the awesome Vintage products has me digging out and dusting off old printer boxes and trays that I bought in college (70's!!!)... and this ticket holder has my name on it!

Sheena said...

wow, the possiblities are endless

Kanani said...

Oh man...I LOVE this! Can't wait to get my hands on it!

maggie liz said...

well this is about the best thing you've done yet...I will have to have one and just hope that I can wait until April....thanks for the chance...so many "goodies" will fit in there.......

Ree said...

I just want to get one before Lorraine!! You gypsy girls know I want one...I think I need twelve of them and have them as calendars for the year!! However one would be amazing, vintage goodness :) I would display inspirational sayings and family history...absolutely love it xxx

debz said...

I would use it to put my daily project in it to keep me motivated. This is great!

mummakat said...

I would use this in my kitchen for vintage recipe cards and pictures. Or maybe some of the amazing tag swaps I've been in! So many ideas so exciting!

Lindsy said...

I think I need this awesome piece to hold name tags at registration tables at my events. Love it.

dlwidder said...

I'd want a couple of them and mount them upside down to the underside of the shelf on my desk's hutch and clip whatever sketches or inspiration images I'm currently working on to them (I tend to work on a few projects at a time). I've been having waaaaayy too much fun on challenge sites lately, so it would help me keep them organized! :-D

I have a few items & photos that are very dear to my heart and I have been searching for the perfect way of displaying these items... and this is it !!!

Manhattan Mandie said...

OH my gosh!!! What a COOL idea! I would use mine to hold all of the new goodies that I bring into my scraproom so I could see and use them instead of shoving them in a case and forgetting about them :)

Anette said...

Love the new Ticket Holder. I would use it on my scrap table to hold ideas for projects and just things that inspire me. It will go right next to my Library Drawer of course!

Cindy B said...

Wow! The ticket holder is so amazing! I LOVE it! So many uses for it....I would use one to hold project samples for my students to see as they create scrapbook pages at the monthly classes that I hold. (it would be GREAT for that!) Another one would sit on my desk, as I scrapbook for myself and create samples for my classes. It would hold inspiration for those projects. Then I would put a 2nd ticket holder in my studio, filled with photos of my precious 18 month old granddaughter. She now lives in another state and I miss her so much...so photos of her being held in the ticket holder would be perfect!And last, I would create a scrapbook "mini-album" of sorts, using the "ticket" theme,with ticket-shaped "pages", and the pages would be held in the ticket holder! Such a fun display that would be!
I would be THRILLED to win a ticket holder! Thanks for the chance!

I'm so excited to get my hands on so many of your new items that are coming out soon, everything that you create and come out with is always a big hit with me! So fun to design with. Thanks for the fun

it would be so wonderful to use as an inspiration focal point or as a seasonal display of photos!!

Ticket holder - also a person who holds a ticket, who is waiting for an adventure to begin. Even gypsies must work, and wash clothes, and cook meals. But I'd steal a glance, in the midst of it all, at my ticket holder - which would hold photos and plans and a good map or two, reminding me that there are roads to be traveled, countries to see, and wonderous adventures just waiting for someday!

I would love love to have one-I would put pictures of my grandkids in till I scraped them-there for changing the display quite often. I would build the page in it by put all of little extras in till I had enough things for a page.

Johnna Moore said...

Love love love this! Oh the possibilities, I love to see what you guys find out there on your journey.

Anita said...

I can think of so many crafty uses for this holder, but I would use this to layer and hold family pictures for my father who is living with dementia. A reminder of people who love him close by and that can easily be pulled out for a better view.

Carole said...

I think I would use it to display pictures of our son with his great uncle and aunt taken at his graduation. They have both since passed away.

Pam said...

Very cool! I'd use the new ticket holder as a daily/weekly goal reminder...I could display each day what action I will take to achieve my weekly goal...some 7 Gypsies paper and embellishments would provide some real inspiration and motivation to achieve...I'm so motivated seeing this I'm off to scour my Gypsy stash to start recording my goal and actions for the coming week...

Carolyn said...

I love the new ticket holder. I want one. Do I really need to have a use for it? I don't think so! Sometimes, cute is cute, and inspirtion for use comes when you are holding it in your hands. Would love to have one.

this is awesom as well as being useful.
I immediately thought about turning it upside down and attaching it to the wall creating a shelf - an ideal place to display the latest finished projects/photos or whatnots i.e your fabulous new range of bottles. I would use the clips to hold messages/pictures/notations and sentiments to inspire me in creating forth coming projects.

Sweet! I am totally thinking a "journey" theme of my latest trip with photos, ephemera, trinkets...and the new tickets are the perfect fit! Love it!

Jo said...

Oh i do love this ... and it is the perfect way to display my vintage post cards, and cards with the odd little photo tucked in there, maybe a bit of vintage lace and then i could place my mom's baby shoes next to it ... and ohhhh ... i have the whole scenario in my mind right now ....

Laura Stewart said...

It's not crafting, but a stray dog just followed my fiance home during a road ride on his bike. He followed for almost 5 miles and got in the car with him when he got to his car. As long as no one claims him, we have a new family member. This would be a cute way to display our story!

Amy said...

OMG! Just when you think 7G's couldn't possibly top the last release, it happens again! I LOVE this, you guys rock! I think this would make a great monthly display for photos and journaling tickets. You could change it out monthly, add photos as you take them. Ohhhh...I can't wait!

calamity jane said...

With something that awesome looking, I'd have to find cool tickets, etc. to stick in! Love the monthly tickets and train tickets too. So hope I'm not too late!!

Veronica said...

Ohhh! It screams recipes to me.... perfect to embellish and have it in a corner of the kitchen bench with all my favourites recipe cards popping out. The little tickets would be the perfect touch to add onto each recipe card with the tittle of the dish. That way, quick to see each one and pick it up! Thanks for being so inspiring! :D Vron

Love this ticket holder. I would put photos of loved ones with some ephemera, journalling type cards, and fake flowers on display with this piece. Thanks for the chance to win.

I know I'm too late for the ticket holder giveaway but I had to post anyway. I absolutely LOVE it! I'm so glad it's not released in April, I've spent so much already on the other new stuff I'm broke! LOL I can't wait to get one. How many days away is April??

This Girl's Life said...

My Nana passed away last month and I inherited a bunch of old family photos. This would be an awesome way to display them along with other family trinkets!

darlene said...

I would love to have one I can thank of so many things I could use for--I probably need several+ a few for gifts
