    Filed under Back in Stock, Collage Sheets, Dapper Gents Kit, Giveaways, Laura Carson, Playing Cards, Sale, Tutorials

    Mini Game Spinners FREE Gift Kit including the fun new Mini Game Spinners Collage Sheet!

    More info
     

    Related Sales! The Gypsy & Playing Cards Collage Sheets are on sale for 50% off AND the Game Pieces and Miscellaneous Items (HUGE) section is on sale for 25% off! Both sales are through MONDAY night, too!


    Design Team Member Laura Carson has made a game based on the Dapper Gents Kit, a ATC Size Hidden Drawer Book Box, and the new Retro Signage Chipboard Set.

    In addition to the Men in Hats ATCs and Satisfying Text Collage Sheets, Laura created a newIntimates” collage sheet of vintage women from (ridiculous) 1950s bra advertisements for her card game.

    In addition to a tutorial on how to make the game, Laura also created images and collage sheets that are free to download so that you can create your own Snarky Ladies Party Game.

    What kind of game would you make? Perhaps a game to play with Alice and The Mad Hatter at a tea party? You could use the same ATC Size Hidden Drawer Book Box (that Laura used) to keep all the cards or game pieces together (and to decorate). Or what about using one of the cover images from the Alice Book Covers 2 Collage Sheet for the cover? That collage sheet will also fit the ATC Size Hidden Drawer Book Box (and is included in today’s Giveaway)!

    There are a few more collage sheets designed for the ATC Sized Faux Book Box that would also fit (and provide the theme for a game):
    - Bird Book Covers Collage Sheet
    - Grimm Covers #3 Collage Sheet
    - Fairy Tale Book Covers Collage Sheet
    - Vintage Christmas Book Covers Collage Sheet
    - Cookbooks ATC Book Covers Collage Sheet
    - Jules Verne ATC Book Covers Collage Sheet

    Oh, or what about a black cat theme using that cute black cat spinner included in the new Mini Game Spinners Half Sheet (that is also in the new FREE Gift Kit)? A Black Cat Fortune Game with a Halloween theme?

    Check out the new items then scroll down to leave me a comment about what game you’d make to enter the Giveaway drawing!
