    Maritime Collection (+Vintage Voyage Kit & Giveaway!)

    Filed under Art Projects, Collage Sheets, Giveaways, Kristin Batsel, Newsletters, Sale, Swaps, Vintage Voyage Kit

    It’s almost April, and time to announce a new monthly theme and kit: Vintage Voyage — but not necessarily the chic Art Deco voyage you might expect. Instead we’re in the 1910-15 timeframe, the era of Edwardian fashion and the Titanic.

    The kit includes 3 sheets of scrapbook paper from the New Maritime Collection, 3 new collage sheets (including a sheet with miniature book covers for creating a travel album), lots of little envelopes for stashing treasures in the pages of your album (like that cute diagonal stripe kraft envelope at right), die-cut sand dollars, and a coordinating set of fibers for binding your album (perfect for adding some seashell charms or even real seashells).

    The adorable Mini Travel Album, at right, is by Design Team Member Kristin Batsel (with pages cut from the Maritime Collection scrapbook papers — and sized to match the larger covers from the New Travel Album Covers Collage Sheet — also included in the kit). Here’s a link to her full supply list. More photos are on Kristin’s blog. More photos are also in the Gallery. Note: more artwork will be added to the Gallery throughout the month.

    More info on the Travel Album Covers Collage Sheet: 3 covers are large enough to be covers for a book of ATCs, and the larger, wide, blue covers (the ones Kristin used) can accommodate all the sizes of envelopes included in this kit (like those tiny square glassine envelopes on another page from Kristin’s album, shown at right).

    And, in honor of this month’s theme, I’ve put the ENTIRE Beach Theme Section On Sale! That’s a HUGE section including charms, papers, rubber stamps, (a lot of) collage sheets… catch it quick as the sale ends April 13th.

    And, Design Team Member Caroline Ouzts-Hay is hosting a related swap! More info is in the Yahoo Group.

    Beside more new goodies related to the theme, see below for info about today’s Giveaway!
