    Bagatelle Boxes! Plus Frames & Fairies FLASH SALE!

    Filed under Art Projects, Back in Stock, Giveaways, Laura Carson, Newsletters, Nichola Battilana, Sale

    Reminder: The Design Team Call closes tonight! Note: you can apply as a paper crafter, collage artist, rubber stamper or miniaturist! Short story: deadline for submissions is January 31, 2019. Looking forward to seeing your artwork!

    I know… it’s cold. Some of you are hiding in your houses and wondering if the woolly mammoths will be running down the street soon.

    This may help a little. In addition to the flash sale on ALL Die-Cut Frames & Windows (inspired by Nichola’s artwork below — now 25% off!), I’ve also put the Fairies Collage Sheets on sale — 50% off!! Instant color if you buy a digital collage sheet file! See the Frames & Fairies sale section for a big mixed-up group of them both! The sale ends at midnight TOMORROW night, February 1st. A few more highlights from the sale section are below (beside the Miniature Bookplates Die-Cut Set shown at right… back in stock, in Nichola’s artwork AND on sale)!

    Next up: Do you remember these lovely little Fairy Dust Bagatelle Boxes that Design Team Member Nichola Battilana made a few years ago? The boxes (all SIX of them!) are now back: Bagatelle Boxes!

    Teeny tiny! That’s what these boxes are! Cute as little shrines (like Nichola made) or you can stack them into your own configuration (there’s a photo with one option farther below in this post).

    And all those cute “fairy dust” labels on the bottles are from Nichola’s Fairy Dust Collage Sheet! Psst: Part of the current flash sale!

    More info on her Fairy Dust Bagatelle Boxes is in this blog post, plus here’s her supply list.

    Note: check the Giveaway below for a photo showing a ton of little bottles that fit in the boxes.

    New & Back in Stock Supplies!

    (Or now for something completely different…)

    Wow! Design Team Member Laura Carson used TWO of the Bagatelle Box – 1-1/2 x 4 Inches (stacked on top of each other, laying horizontally) on a 1:12 scale dollhouse table to make a secretary! (See the photo at left… and those cubbies on either end of the boxes — like the one on the left side with scrolls inside: matchboxes!)

    The secretary was inside Ghostmore Manor: part of Laura’s Haunted Village… the final installment of her fab Haunted Village Series from 2015.

    The printed top of that secretary (plus a zillion spooky trims from the project) are on the Ghostmore Manor Collage Sheet Set (or its digital companion: Ghostmore Manor Set Download).

    More info on Laura’s project is on this post, and quite a few items from the supply list are still available.
