    FOUR New Amour Kits (Valentine Paper Theatres)

    Filed under Amour Kit, Giveaways, Kristin Batsel, Paper Dolls/Theatres, Shannon Cooper, Tristan Robin Blakeman

    The theme for January’s kit is Amour (Valentine Paper Theatres). Although the scrapbook papers in this kit were made for Valentine’s Day, with their bold graphics (and French themed icons), I think they’ll be useful far beyond February 14th.

    Note: I’m trying something new this month and have made FOUR smaller kits (the main kit plus THREE add-on kits):
    - Amour Add-On Kit
    - Cirque Facade Theatre Add-On Kit
    - Theatre Francais Facade Add-On Kit

    Back to what is in this kit, let’s start with an item that’s back in stock after a long while: Square Shrine – Gatefold. It’s made of 3 pieces of sturdy chipboard, made to be “hinged” together (just with paper tape… or metal hinges if you’re ambitious) to make a simple shrine. There are many collage sheets with images sized to fit this little shrine, and THREE new ones are in this kit:
    - Square Shadowbox Curtains – Red Collage Sheet
    - Gatefold Square Shrine Curtains Collage Sheet
    - Gatefold Shrine B&W Elements Collage Sheet

    Check out that adorable House of Alice Theatre by Shannon Cooper! It is such a creative piece (creative for the recipient, too, as it has multiple scenes that can be dropped into the theatre through a slot Shannon left open in the top).

    And i love that there’s a tiny teacup in place of a rose in the bouquet on the header. Here’s a link to Shannon’s Supply List. And read more (and see more photos) on her blog.

    Note: There are photos of paper theatres by THREE Design Team Members in the Gallery (and more will be added during January). Be sure to read the other two posts, too:

    - Kristin Batsel’s Zebra Circus Wagon (that clever girl used the new Square Shrine Shadowbox upside down so the header is a base for the wheels). And here’s Kristin’s Supply List.

    - Tristan Robin Blakeman’s Miniature Faerie Theatre (such a lovely piece that I built the Theatre Francais Facade Add-On Kit around Tristan’s supply list!)

    Preview pics are below but all 3 projects today are spectacular!
