    Alchemy Coasters & Coins by Nichola Battilana

    Filed under Art Projects, Back in Stock, Coins Coasters & Holders Kit, Giveaways, Nichola Battilana, Sale

    Beautiful! That’s what we’ve got today: Lots of new items, a 40-50% off sale (TWO sections!), and beautiful new papers (and artwork)!

    Alchemy Coasters and Coins by Design Team Member Nichola Battilana

    Oh my… just feast your eyes on those beautiful coins and coasters by Mz Nichola (they may be smaller than you think — the coins are just 2-1/2″ diameter). The photo of the coins is immediately below; the pic for the coasters is farther down in this missive. I adore Nichola’s artwork (and enthusiasm)!

    Alpha Stamps sent me this Alchemy 12 x 12 Pad and I have one word. SWOOOOOON! Ugh! It’s the type of pad you take extra care when cutting into because there’s something gorgeous on both sides of the paper.

    I used that gorgeousness with elements from this months’ kit: Coins, Coasters & Holders.

    I mean you wouldn’t think that moons and bees would go together…. but here we are.

    The coins and coasters that are the base of these pieces are super thick chipboard. If you know me, I like to beat my projects into submission so these extra thick beauties are a total treat.

    Here’s a link to all the supplies Nichola used. Be sure to visit her blog post for lots more info & photos! AND see below in the Giveaway section for a chance to win lots of the supplies!

    New & Back in Stock Goodies!

    Oh, and that new blank album is quite a treat! Keep reading (too) as there’s a FLASH SALE, related to the Stars Nichola used!

    Gypsy Collage Sheets and Glitter & Tinsel ON SALE!

    Woohoo! I was so inpired by Nichola’s beautful artwork that i picked TWO sections (and I’ve extended the normal length of a sale)! This is a 50% off sale on Gypsy Collage Sheets (that includes all the alchemy ones) AND a 40% off sale on Glitter & Tinsel (for all those shiny stars Nichola used)!

    Over 110 options… including the highlights below (and the alchemy collage sheet, stars & iridescent garland shown above)!

    The sale ends at midnight on SATURDAY night, May 18th. Click: FLASH SALE to see everything from both sections in one group!

    Alchemy Coasters Giveaway!

    Ah… there’s that mix of bees and the moon that Nichola spoke of (the middle coaster at left… by the way, those are the “larger” 4 inch coasters… a bit more space to “art on”)!

    In addition to one of the May Kits (that will give you a coin, a small coaster, and 3 chipboard holders to play with — and 2 of those 3 are in the photo of Nichola’s coins above) , I’ve picked more items from Nichola’s supply list for today’s Giveaway:
    - the 4 inch coasters
    - all the stars in Nichola’s artwork! including those brass stars shown at left
    - a 3 Inch Dimensional Coin Folder (see Nichola’s post for info on her love of chunky embellishments!)
    - a new Alchemy Paper Pad!!
