FIRST: A new FREE Spring Floral Mini Kit! This mini kit includes a new exclusive collage sheet with flowers, fairies, and a few bunny rabbits, all chosen to complement the colors of the beautiful new mulberry paper flower included in the kit! One each of 7 pretty posies to give you a taste of how lovely these handmade paper flowers are.

SECOND: An embarrassment of riches: artwork from THREE Design Team Members using 2 sizes of the new 3D Cinderella Coach! (More info below)
THIRD: A new SALE: ALL Die-Cut Shrines & 3D Items are on sale for 25% off! The sale ends MONDAY night, February 27th. NOTE: this includes the 2 new 3D Cinderella Coaches, too!!
FOURTH: A new Giveaway: A Springy Floral 3D Coach Giveaway Kit!
On to the artwork! I love the Design Team! They are all so creative and I love to see what they make from the same materials. Case in point:
Shannon Cooper made the sweetest Miniature Cinderella Wedding Coach from the mini size of the 3D Cinderella Coach. It is so simple and elegant… it would be the perfect centerpiece for a wedding dinner… or since it’s only 3-1/2″ tall, it could be the decor on top of a wedding cake.
AND Shannon’s blog post includes a tutorial on how to add the seats and curved floor shown through the open door in that photo!
Next: Nichola Battilana lost her mind and made BOTH sizes of the coach. Her TWO Sparkly Cinderella Coaches are both covered in glitter! As she admits: “Because I’m as lazy as one can possibly be… and, let’s face it, I have an extreme glitter fetish… my immediate impulse was to bathe these beauties in the sparkly stuff. And because I have low impulse control, that’s just what I did.”
I will have to object: someone who spends the time to construct 2 coaches and then glitter and decorate them is NOT lazy! Read more and see more photos of her glittering artwork in Nichola’s blog post.
Laura Carson created a beautiful and functional item from the larger 3D Cinderella Coach: A Perfume Bottle Caddy. Laura has a drool-worthy collection of glass perfume bottles and has made a Cinderella coach (complete with a lace and pearl crown on top) to convey them.
Learn how she put the coach together (and painted and decorated it) in Laura’s blog post.
Don’t forget to come back (whether from 3 lovely blog posts or from getting swept away by the new flowers below) to enter the Giveaway!
