    Over the Summer Sea by Laura Carson, New Goodies & Clearance Sale!

    Filed under Art Projects, Collage Sheets, Giveaways, Laura Carson, Newsletters, Sale, Vacation Memories Kit

    There is so much to cover today, I’m jumping right in.

    First, another inventive project using the July kit; this time by Design Team Member Laura Carson.

    Laura made the new Over the Summer Sea Collage Sheet (to coordinate with the Seaside Victorian Children Collage Sheet that’s also in the kit). She used images from both collage sheets for the inside of the small box and also the children standing in the middle.

    Note: she made the children double-sided, so they can be viewed from any angle. Clever!

    I love the seashells that Laura cast from the 7 Seashells Silicone Mold (around the box top, mixed with other buttons & real shells & metal shell charms). And she matched the vintage colors from the Beach and Shore Backdrops Collage Sheet images she used on the outside of the box. Plus, note the knob she created for the box top, from a brass ship wheel sitting atop a verdigris bead cap.

    Beside these photos of Laura’s project, there’s another photo down in the Giveaway section, where you can enter to win lots of supplies from Laura’s supply list! And be sure to visit Laura’s blog for more photos and tips (and a video tutorial on that origami sailboat)!

    New Products!

    Beside that new collage sheet by Laura, look at that adorably tiny jewelry box! And the tiny keys are just the right size to work in the jewelry box, too! Plus some playing cards perfect for an Alice in Wonderland project…


    Wow! Yes, all those lovely items left behind are ready: I’ve put the old site back online, so… the CLEARANCE SALE is on!

    The entire site is 50% off!

    Note: If there are items in your old wishlist that were moved to the new site, you can still purchase them on the old site but they won’t be on clearance.

    Grab ‘em before they’re gone!

    Hooray for the Over the Summer Sea Giveaway!

    I picked a photo showing the other side of the standing children. Note: everything I’m listing here is included in today’s Giveaway:

    - The July kit AND all the collage sheets used in Laura’s project
    - All the seashell charms or buttons

    Click here to see everything in Laura’s supply list, though “only” the items linked in that last paragraph are in today’s Giveaway. (Even though there are just 2 links, the Giveaway includes the kit (8 items, including the Double Explosion Box and 1 collage sheet), 3 more collage sheets AND 4 more seashell embellishments!)

    Note: if an item is duplicated in the Vacation Memories Kit (included in the Giveaway) and also listed separately in the supply list, I’m just including one of those items.

    To enter the Over the Summer Sea Giveaway drawing all you have to do is leave a comment BELOW on this blog post TODAY or TOMORROW (the deadline is 11:59 pm PST, Monday Night, July 23, 2018).
