This Beauty and the Beast Kit is lavish and romantic, featuring small patterned papers from the Midnight Masquerade line, plus a new gatefold shrine card, 3 new collage sheets and a trio of silver charms!
Let’s start with the new, exclusive Taj Mahal Folding Card! A folding card (lightweight chipboard, scored for easy folding). Approx 6″ tall x 4″ wide when the door are folded shut.
The kit includes TWELVE 6″ x 6″ sheets of scrapbook paper (quarter page cuts from all the designs in the Midnight Masquerade 12×12 Patterns & Solids Pad). See the photos below for some samples (love, love, love all the harlequin diamond patterns).
On to the colorful collage sheets!
Simply Beautiful Beauty and the Beast Collage Sheet – New!
I must say: I have been hoarding these illustrations for about a decade… waiting for just the right kit to use them in. See the photo below with the close-up of the lion (beast) in a Charles II wig!
Beauty and Varied Beasts Collage Sheet – New!
Such creative illustrators, with the beast appearing as a bear or a boar (and one looks like a werewolf).
Smaller Crane Beauty and the Beast Collage Sheet – New!
Similar to the Walter Crane Beauty and the Beast Collage Sheet but smaller images (sized for the center panel of the Taj Mahal Folding Card but will work well for ATCs, too). Includes a couple additional images: Beauty’s father picking the rose and being confronted by the Beast, and her father returning home with the rose.
Now back to the spiffy artwork featured today. Laura’s Beauty & the Beast Triptych is beautiful on the front and back (trust me… or better yet, scoot over to her blog to see lots more photos, and to learn how she made such a dimensional piece using paper and a folded chipboard card).
And… Shannon’s Mysterious Masquerade Altered Tin! (See the wide photo above with the black masked dancer and the purple flowers.) How regal with that crown (actually just a piece of the new Chipboard Fleur Border, bent into a curve and attached to the top of an Altoid’s Tin)! See more photos (and tips) on Shannon’s blog post!
More info and lots more photos are on the Beauty and the Beast Kit page. And tons of coordinating supplies are below and on the site.
Next: New Walter Crane Beauty and the Beast Collage Sheet (not in the kit but certainly related… and used by Laura in her fab triptych shown above)
Then, (and this is a coup): 1 each of the 8 double-sided sheets from the New Midnight Masquerade 8×8 Paper Pad.
