Fear not! Even though this item is now sold out, there are still links to related items on this page. (Plus lots of eye candy from the Design Team!)
It's time to announce the February Kit: Cute as a Button!
Yes, yes... this an amazingly, syrupy-sweet kit! Between The Three Little Kittens, The Owl and the Pussycat, and all of those silly kitty cat buttons, it may all be too much for you. If you like the sewing/button theme but you'd like a few less kitties, check out the Add-On Kit (which has a more straight-up "vintage sewing" theme).
But for those of you who remain, you brave souls, you grown-ups who can still appreciate whimsy and beautiful illustrations from vintage children's books: I am forging ahead! I have a large collection of children's books. And a drawer dedicated to books about cats & kittens. I've made collage sheets (and rubber stamps) based on Puss in Boots in the past (though there are still some cute unused images so Puss may be making a comeback when I find the time). And I've also made collage sheets about The Three Little Kittens (note that link to the Mother Goose article), but I've never put together a kit around the theme.
But the combination of finding some new scrapbook papers with a sewing theme (including that adorable Montage Mercantile Scrapbook Paper with a collage of Victorian advertisement all retinted in a pink, turquoise and sepia palette) AND a horde of cute painted cat buttons led me to reopen that drawer.
There are 3 full-size (12" x 12") scrapbook papers and 3 collage sheets in the kit. (See the "We Also Recommend" section below for photos/links). Note: there are 14 items in the kit and the site will only allow 9 to be shown below so do check this custom search to see photos of all of them.) And all those papers and collage sheets are On Sale, too!
In fact, the ENTIRE Vintage Sewing & Cooking Collage Sheets Section AND the Household Charms Section (where you'll find things like scissors) are both On Sale through Sunday night, February 15th!
Plus some NEW cat, owl and tiny heart buttons, miniature wooden spools, and 3 yards of coordinating seam bindings are also in this kit.
(And remember, there is also a related Cute as a Button Add-On Kit available on another page.)
Kits are announced the first weekend of each month. However, if you sign up for a subscription, your kit will probably have already been mailed to you.
A note on timing for subscribers: the kits don't ship till your automatic payment is made; the recurring payment date is based on the date you signed up for the subscription. If you'd like to make a 1-time "catch up" payment so that you'll be first in line to receive all future kits, contact Customer Service.
If you buy a subscription after the 15th of the month, your first kit will be for the following month (so if you subscribe on October 16th, the November kit will be your first kit).
Kits from previous months will be available for purchasing until sold out.
And remember, here's a link to everything in this month's kit that is also available to buy separately. More coordinating goodies (and even more new collage sheets and cat buttons!) are listed on the blog post announcing this kit.
More artwork made from this kit is in the Gallery.
