    Santa’s Workshop, FLASH Sale & Special FREE Gift!

    Filed under Art Projects, Black Friday Sale 2017, Christmas, Collage Sheets, Giveaways, Laura Carson, Newsletters, Sale

    Hooray! It’s the final newsletter for this holiday weekend sale! (Whew!) FREE shipping on orders over $50 (for orders shipping to USA) now through FRIDAY night, December 2nd! Wow! The holiday weekend sales may be over by Monday, but you’ll still get a gift! Read more about the sale weekend.

    Plus see below for a Special Santa’s Toys Gift Kit (for orders placed today or tomorrow only)!

    Santa’s Workshop Diorama by Laura Carson

    Wow! Design Team Member Laura Carson has created a whole Santa’s workshop village using three of the Large Haunted House Shadowboxes announced for Halloween! (Plus a bunch of new chipboard trims AND new minature toys). I’m going to show a fair number of photos, but check Laura’s blog post for lots more pictures and a tutorial!


    There are FIVE new collage sheets today! Four are by Laura (and see below as you can get one of them FREE); one is by me (for making tiny pull toys of vintage circus animals) with a new Small Wheeled Platform). Laura used 5 of those same wheeled platforms to make two connected “trains” for the elves to transport toys to the wrapping department or wrapped presents to Santa’s sleigh.


    Things are hopping at the North Pole where Santa’s Workshop is in full swing pumping out toys.

    Everything in this wintry scene is covered in sparkling ice and snow. In the center is a new decorated tree standing on a giant drum.

    (See the left side of the photo below for that new tree and the sleigh — note: Laura includes a section in her tutorial on making and decorating the sleigh.)

    If you peek in the windows you’ll see lots of toys and elves at work. Santa’s doing his last minute check of his list.

    Note I zoomed in on that “Santa in the window” scene on the right of the wide photo below. The detail in this whole project is amazing… from the snow in the windows to the room in the little cubby behind the “glass” window panes.

    Read more (and see more photos & a tutorial) in Laura’s blog post and/or see everything from her supply list.

    Psst… See today’s special FREE Gift Kit below for some cute (!) toys and mini gift boxes to decorate your own Santa’s workshop.


    FLASH Sale (ends at midnight MONDAY night, November 27th)!

    Oh my… this is huge! ALL Christmas AND Angels/Saints Collage Sheets are on sale at 50% off ! Over 130 to choose from! Like the new Elves in Santa’s Workshop at right, Tiny Christmas Windows (far right) and Bouguereau #4 (Angels) at left, AND including more of the new items below!

    Santa’s Toys Gift Kit!

    I may have gone a little wild picking out items for today’s gift kit, as it’s the last one for this sale weekend. PLUS I’m packaging this group in another cute gift box (a paper-wrapped chipboard box with a removeable lid — the top left of the photo below, with the little display showing a reindeer is on the lid).

    The first 20 orders over $50.00 TODAY ONLY will get everything shown in a gift box. PLUS one of the new North Pole Half Sheet, designed by Laura!

    NOTE: every order today or tomorrow (November 26th and 27th) will get a free gift (still in the Toys & Tiny Presents theme, but not as many items as the gift kits shown, and not packaged in a gift box).

    Some of the items shown are ones that Laura used in her artwork, like the Miniature Flocked Teddy Bear, and the Foil-Wrapped Gift Boxes. Some are from items that have sold out on the site. Some are old friends, like the Frosted Mini Sisal Trees, Santa Sleigh Silver Charm Set and Tiny Train Set.
