    Witchy Memorabilia, New Spooky Stuff, Metal Filigree on Sale!

    Filed under Alice Accordion Book Kit, Alice in Wonderland, Coins Coasters & Holders Kit, Susan Killam, Susan Yee

    Wow! Lots of new items, a 40% off sale (!) and 3 projects by 2 Design Team Members (both named Susan)! I’m diving in quickly!

     
    Witchy Memorabilia Box by Design Team Member Susan Killam

    There are SOOO many cool things in this box (and the box is decorated as well)! Susan used tons of the goodies announced with the May Kit for her treasures (like the 3 Inch Dimensional Coin Folder shown at far right). I love the addition of metal clasps (and feet, and a handle) to the chipboard pockets.

    Plus she includes some tips on using black gesso to hide the tan chipboard-colored perforations on the folders.

    Here’s a link to all the supplies Susan 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!

    So many new things to mention today, they’re not all covered in the previews below! Click here to see all THIRTEEN of them!

    Keep reading (too) as there’s a FLASH SALE, related to the New Filigree!

     
    TWO Alice Projects by Design Team Member Susan Yee

    Wow (again)! Susan has made 2 very different Alice in Wonderland projects, both using a Blank Altoids Tin. The accordion-folded book at right, using panels from the Altoids Tin Accordion Book (but cut apart and re-connected with ribbons) is called Mend My Broken Heart. So inventive! And check Susan’s blog post for lots of in-process photos showing how she built up layers. Plus here is the supply list.

    And below… BIG WOW! Those 2 photos are just showing part of a larger (actually taller) piece called the “Where’s Alice?” Treasure Box. I love all the layers and texture, and the fun parts like the animals holding a sign “Where’s Alice?! It’s time for CHESS!”

    Here’s a link to all the supplies Susan used for this second project. Be sure to visit Susan’s second blog post for more info on how she made this project (including hollowing out part of a paper mache dress form to nest the tin into)!

     
    ALL Metal Filigree ON SALE!

    This is a 40% off sale on over 40 options… including the highlights below (and the new ones shown above)!

    The sale includes standard “filigree” & some fancy pieces in the beads/bead caps sections.

    The sale ends at midnight on FRIDAY night, May 10th. Click: FLASH SALE to see everything!

     
    Witchy Memorabilia Giveaway!

    I know… so much eye candy today you can barely remember Susan (Killam’s) witchy project above! But seeing we’re almost 10 days into May (eek!) I think it’s time to give away some items from the May Kit — starting with one of the kits! That will give you the scrapbook paper and one each of the 2 shapes of 2-1/2″ heavy chipboard pieces Susan decorated.

    In addition, I’ve picked ELEVEN more items from Susan’s supply list for today’s Giveaway:
    - the 2 metal clasps (and feet, and a handle) that I mentioned above — so that’s 4 items
    - ALL SEVEN Collage Sheets Susan used (with lots of witchy images, of course!)

    To enter the Witchy Memorabilia 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, Friday Night, May 10, 2019).

    And what are you going to make?

    Don’t forget to leave your (hello!) correct email address, too, so I can contact the winner; your email address does not need to be made public. Note: I’m offering free shipping, too, but only within the USA. International shipping will still apply.

    Please be patient! Spammers try to post crap here a lot so comments are moderated. So if you don’t see your post in the comments section, be patient and check back in a few hours before re-posting it, please!

    After midnight, I’ll randomly pick the winner (via Random.org).

    Hey, who won the Mad Hatter Hat Giveaway from Sunday’s newsletter? That would be Lea Cook! Congrats! Check your email for info.
