    More Holiday Weekend Sales! New Halloween Art & Paper Sale!

    Filed under Art Projects, Back in Stock, Coins Coasters & Holders Kit, Giveaways, Halloween, Sale, Shannon Cooper

    In addition to the shipping sale (see right) — AND the Marie Antoinette Collage Sheets 50% off sale inspired by Daniela’s snarky Marie art last Thursday — I’ve just put ALL Scrapbook Paper on sale at 30% off! All the sales end TUESDAY night!

     
    Black Hat Society Art Coin Mini Book
    by Design Team Member Shannon Cooper

    Yay! Beside (all of our) favorite holiday (Halloween, of course!) it’s so fun to see how the same kit parts can be made into different themes… like Shannon’s Black Hat Society Art Coin Mini Book below and Daniela’s Marie Antoinette book from last Thursday.

    Here’s a bit from Shannon’s blog post to start:

    It isn’t just art coins in this month’s kit, there are also square art coasters (clever!) and pockets, folders, and holders for all of your new art. Neat! I was a bit overwhelmed with all of the bits sent to me because, honestly, what couldn’t you do with a bunch of these? In the end, I smashed a bunch of the pockets and folders together to make a mini album. I think a group of the little pockets and coins would be cute if glued vertically along a ribbon and hung on a wall. Maybe next time.

    The book has two signatures, each of which is made from two 3″ coin holders

    As I’ve not shown all the pages inside Shannon’s book, it won’t make sense to quote more (about which holder is on which page), but you can read more with all the photos to help make sense — and a tutorial on how to put the book together (!) — in Shannon’s blog post.

    Here’s a link to all of Shannon’s supplies. And check below for a photo of all the art coins in the Giveaway section! AND don’t miss the new Halloween goodies and Scrapbook Paper Sale between here and there!

    Witchy Art Coins Giveaway!

    There’s all the art coins from Shannon’s Black Hat Society Art Coin Mini Book!

    I love all the monotone witches, from the Something Witchy, Witch Stock and Women In Costume Collage Sheets.

    Today’s Giveaway includes ALL the supplies in Shannon’s project! That’s 19 items, one of which is the kit, so more than 19! Beside tons of background papers and collage images, there are trims like Thin Fleur Dresden Borders and Halloween Dress Up Half Sheet!

    Note: if an item is duplicated in the Coins, Coasters & Holders Kit (included in the Giveaway) and also listed separately in the supply list, I’m just including one of those items. HOWEVER, I am including an extra set of Artist Trading Coins so you’ll have 4 to play with!

    To enter the Witchy Art Coins Giveaway drawing all you have to do is leave a comment on this blog post TODAY, TOMORROW or TUESDAY (the deadline is 11:59 pm PST, TUESDAY Night, May 28, 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 Come Sit Next to Me Giveaway from Sunday’s newsletter? That would be Carla M! Congrats! Check your email for info.
