    New 6×6 Shadowbox & FLASH Sale!

    Filed under Art Projects, Back in Stock, Cinderella Kit, Giveaways, Newsletters, Rhonda Secrist Thomas, Sale

    Wow! Not only a new 6×6 Shadowbox (with beautiful artwork by Design Team Member Rhonda Secrist Thomas) but a FLASH SALE, too!

    ALL Blank Books & Boxes: On Sale at 30% off! (So the new shadowbox is also on sale at 30% off!) Psst! That cute Mouse & Pumpkin Borders Set shown with the new shadowbox, at right, is also included in today’s Giveaway!

    The sale includes things like the ever-popular Small Paper Mache House (shown at left — and more highlights are shown below). The sale ends Friday night, February 10th at midnight PST! See ‘em all! Over 70 options!
     


    I love what Rhonda did with the new 6×6 Shadowbox! Filled with so many little treasures (in that row of cubbies, which can be used across the top, down the side, or across the bottom of your shadowbox). And all of those pretty pink posies! (And pink and black and silver chipboard silhouettes!)

    Here’s a preview from Rhonda’s Blog Post:

    There are so many wonderful items to choose from in this month’s Cinderella Kit. Decisions, decisions. Do I go with the pitiful Cinderella being pushed around, or the magical beauty taking on her destiny? How about both!

    And luckily I was using this 6×6 Shadowbox as my base which gave me lots of room for plenty of details and embellishments. And I’ve always been a huge fan of pink and black.

    I didn’t want all of my chipboard silhouettes to be the usual “black” so I decided to do some with a bit of color. I used a couple of shades of pink from Tim Holtz Distress Paint Line and for my black silhouettes I used more Distress Paints in Black Soot and Tarnished Brass. It gave a bit of dimension and character to my shapes.

    I always like dimension and one favorite “tool” from my creative kit is to use adhesive foam to make images stand out, and also some stand out further than others like the black silhouettes below.

    Vintage pocket watches are a great way to create a mini magical creative spot. I used an authentic one but Tim Holtz also has a wonderful faux version.

    I love the mix of Lilac Cream Variegated Tiny Paper Roses with other flowers, and a Tiny Metal Mouse peeking out (in the pocket watch). (And of course, the clock about to strike midnight!)

    Read more in Rhonda’s blog post and see everything she used to create her lovely artwork in her supply list!

    15. Peg D Says:

      I really don’t know. I love Rhonda’s Cinderella box. It is beautiful but I have no little girls around who would love it or to give it too. I am liking the Alice idea. I have a mountain of Alice stuff from papers to stamps that have followed me around for awhile now. But I am also thinking toward next holiday season and Spring. It would make a lovely garden box with birds and flowers or a house box with some of those windows from the oddities house. It is a wonderful giveaway :)

    16. Jennie Ingram Says:

      Maybe a Beauty & the Beast shadow box!

    17. LeAnn Says:

      I like the fairy tale idea but would probably make mine Halloween themed.

    18. Traci Says:

      Easter themed-just in time for the holiday. >^..^<

    19. Kathlene Ford-Walters Says:

      It would have to be Alice in Wonderland, maybe the scene from the Tea Party with the Mad Hatter. What fun!

      Something with Alice in Wonderland

    34. Nancy E Says:

      Just love this!

    35. Kimberly Says:

      I love the Cinderella theme. I’d go with that

    36. Emily N. Says:

      I love shadowboxes. I’d make a scene that is continued from cubby to cubby with miniature characters in each box.

    37. chark Says:

      well, I’m loving this theme, but maybe a Halloween one. Beautiful project!

    38. Jo Says:

      So pretty – and perfect for Valentine’s Day! But I would probably make a Halloween themed one from all the stash I have! :)

    39. Marilyn Hughes Says:

      I would probably do something in miniature with the flowers and flower pots you carry. Maybe a mini garden with the silhouettes as a backdrop.

    40. Jan K. Says:

      I would love to make a Valentines assemblage box using all the pink, white, and red fru fru I can find! Love this give away! Thanks!
