The new year just seems like a good time for a fairy tale. We had so much fun with the Little Red Riding Hood Kit a couple years ago that another Brothers' Grimm story seemed like a good option...
The January kit is Snow White. (Actually, a lot of the new chipboard items being announced this month are more about The Evil Queen (and her mirror — "Mirror, mirror, on the wall...") than Snow herself...)
I designed a new set of Fairy Tale Frames Altoid Inserts (a big set, each with 2 options for layered label holders). ONE of the frames (plus its 2 matching label holders) from the new set is in this kit. You can stack up both of the label holders or just use one over the insert (and maybe use the other on the outside of the Altoids Tin cover).
PLUS a Blank Altoids Tin to use with that chipboard insert!
AND the kit includes 1 sheet each of all 12 designs from the Winter Wishes 6x6 Paper Pad (A pretty winter/snowflake themed set... yet with enough woodgrain, pine cones and black to work with the darker themes in the Snow White tale.)
AND Tiny Mixed Size Flat-Back Pearls
A custom mix of tiny pearl cabs. From 1.5mm to 4mm diameter. I'd suggest tweezers to set the tiny ones! A mixed bag with a TON of pearls (the amount shown in the tin is from one baggie).
This kit also includes TWO new collage sheets!
Poison Apple Collage Sheet
More than just the poisoned apple here: also images of the pretty laced bodice that the Evil Queen tried to kill Snow White with before almost succeeding with the apple (the illustrators may have had a bit of confusion over the years, as some images show ribbons or belts instead of a laced bodice... maybe they were trying to show fashions that were in favor at the time they illustrated the story).
Fairy Tale Titles Collage Sheet
Lots of options: Snow White, Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Red Riding Hood (most of those in German, too) and more generic phrases like "Fairy Tales", "Enchantment" and "Once Upon a Time." Plus some by request, specific to Snow White: "Poison Apple" and "Bitch, please!"
(And remember: all the collage sheets are on sale for 15% off (and the digital downloads are on sale for 40% off!), so those new collage sheets are on sale, too!)
Aside: did you notice there's an article on The Brothers Grimm Fairy Tales? With short histories and links to collage sheets or stamps for a few of the tales.
See the "We Also Recommend" section below for photos/links to all of the items in the kit, also available to purchase separately.
AND: all the items in the kit are On Sale, too!
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 are listed on the blog post announcing this kit.
Design Team Member Kristin Batsel made Snow White's Refusal (see the wide photo below). More info in the blog.
