    New Time Keeper Collection, More Salvaged Metals

    Filed under Art Projects, Caroline Ouzts-Hay, Giveaways, Newsletters, Steampunk, Vintage Vagabond Kit

    A quick reminder before getting to the (amazing!) eye candy…
    the Half Price Sale on Steampunk Collage Sheets (and FREE collage sheet offer) announced in Sunday’s Newsletter ends tomorrow night (Friday, April 24th). And that perfectly meshes with some gorgeous new papers below…

    “To help celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition I’ve created some postcards highlighting events from the Expo. When I was done making the postcards I felt like I hadn’t done enough. I’ve been itching to make a book accordion file so voilà, the perfect way to store postcards!”

    Of course she did! Design Team Member Caroline Ouzts-Hay has exquisite bookbinding skills and I don’t think she realizes that not all of us can whip out a perfectly-aligned accordion book like she can. Caroline’s blog post today explains the overall project (and the funny postcards) and in the future she’ll have a tutorial showing the accordion book (to keep the postcards in).

    Here is Caroline’s Supply List and see her blog for more info and more photographs!
