    Holiday Weekend SHIPPING SALE! New Marie Art & 50% off Sale!

    Filed under Art Projects, Back in Stock, Daniela Costa, Giveaways, Marie Antoinette, Sale

    It’s the unofficial start of summer! In addition to the shipping sale (see right), I’ve put ALL Marie Antoinette Collage Sheets on sale at 50% off! (That’s in honor of Design Team Member Daniela Costa’s fun projects shown below.) And I’ll be adding more sale items this weekend — stay tuned for more info!

    Marie is Drunk Art Coins & Simple Pockets Album

    Daniela went all-out with the May kit! She has made THREE snarky Marie-themed projects for today! (I know… fun, colorful and beyond expectation!) Plus she’s working on even more things with a Marie Antoinette theme for later this summer — can’t wait to see what she makes!)

    Back to today: the first project is Marie is Drunk Art Coins & Simple Pockets Album. Ha! And they are a delight. They look easy to make, too… here’s a bit from Daniela’s blog post including short instructions:

    I am a lover of anything Marie Antoinette themed, so this was a really fun month for me. I love snarky comments as well, so put this all together and you have Marie is Drunk… Art Coins.

    You know its a great (design team) kit when a word collage sheet is included called “Bitchy Words.” I think I’ve used almost all of the sheet, I love it so much.. I need to order more!

    “Be a sweetie and fix Mommy another Martini”
    “I’m the person your mother warned you about”

    Making the art coins is so much fun. Find beautiful background paper and cover your coins. Sand all your edges, then either ink them or use wet glue and glitter. Cut out collage images, and flowers, etc, decorating each coin. Find snarky comment you love, cut, ink and adhere to coins!

    The coins are in the 4.5″ Simple Pockets, and I’ve used some beautiful Blue Fern Paper from the site. Here’s a complete supply list for this project. WEEHOO!

    Be sure to visit her blog post for lots more info & photos (of ALL THREE projects)! AND see below in the Giveaway section for a photo of another project and a chance to win lots of Marie-themed supplies!

    New & Back in Stock Goodies! Perfect for your own Marie Book!
