    New Vintage Victorian Ornaments Kit

    Oh, what pretty papers! The new Vintage Saga 6×6 Paper Pad inspired this kit, with its mix of collaged images from vintage ephemera, sheet music, angels, roses, birds, and fairies (not a normal “Santa Claus Christmas” group). Then I added 2 wooden ornament shapes, Red Roses Dresden Scraps, and a custom set of 5 ribbons. You should have lots of options for making ornaments!

    Go see the new kit for more info and more photos (plus more coordinating goodies and Design Team artwork is below).

     
    Angel Themed Christmas Ornaments & Tags by Laura Carson

    I love these classic ornaments by Laura! (And note she made more than the ones shown here… also, another is shown below in the Giveaway section!)

    These ornaments and tags were inspired by the December Vintage Victorian Ornaments Kit and the lovely Vintage Saga 6×6 Paper Pad. I was drawn to the non-traditional color scheme and imagery (pinks, cream and red with flowers and birds) on the Vintage Saga paper. I was also inspired to create a series of new collage sheets to complement the paper. The new flowers and bird collage sheets would also work well for all kinds of other themed projects. The new Mini Birds Half Sheet is Free with Purchase for a limited time (more info below).

    Using lovely paper, Dresden scraps and some images it was easy to put together a set of Victorian-style ornaments using a die-cut wood ornament shape as the base.

    While I was at it, I thought, why not make a set of large gift tags for some of the girlfriend Christmas gifts I am giving.

    Thank you, Laura! Your ornaments are beautiful; I know your friends receiving them for Christmas will be thrilled!

    Go visit Laura’s blog post for tips and more photos! Here’s her supply list. And read on, as there are tons of Christmas treats still below.

    Well, as you can probably guess by the name, this Giveaway starts with one of the new kits! That gets you the scrapbook paper set, rose scraps, wooden base, and ribbon needed to make Laura’s ornament shown at left.

    FREE Gift with Every Order!

    It’s Day 3 of this sale and we have a new gift kit AND a new FREE collage sheet by Laura Carson!

    So you’ll have more fodder to make gift tags similar to Laura’s ornaments, I’ve picked out this Ribbons & Tags Gift Kit (shown at left) for today’s FREEBIE for physical orders! It includes yards of Christmas-y ribbons (most from kits that have sold out) plus a set of 3 mini manila tags (in 3 sizes).

    BONUS: The digital version of Laura’s New Mini Birds Half Sheet will automatically be sent with all collage sheet orders placed today (whether you order digital downloads or a physical sheets).

    How it works: Buy ANY COLLAGE SHEET (over 1300 options) and put the digital version of the Mini Birds Half Sheet in your cart and the Mini Birds will show up as FREE when you check out! (That could even be the cardstock version of the same new collage sheet if you’d like both the cardstock and digital versions.) The link to download the hi-res pdf will be in your order confirmation email.

    Note: the site is fighting me… you cannot use 2 discount codes on the same order (and this free digital collage sheet counts as a discount). So if you want to purchase items from the FLOWERS FLASH SALE and also get this collage sheet free, I’d suggest placing 2 orders (note: if your order with the free collage sheet is all digital, you won’t be charged shipping.)

    BONUS #2: If you spend $50 (also the threshold for free shipping in the US), then I’ll substitute the fab 3D Santa & Silver Charms Kit shown below (2 kits are shown in that wide photo). That kit includes the Jeweler’s Tin shown in the photo, too! Some items are custom to the gift kit, but here are those available to purchase separately. Note: you’ll just get one of the charms from the Round 12 Days of Christmas Number Charms Set (so not everyone will get the number “12″ shown in the photo). If you spend over $50 and want the Ribbons & Tags Gift Kit instead, just leave a note on your order.

    There nothing special to add to your order! (No discount code to enter!) All orders TODAY will receive one of the free gifts! Note: If you guys go crazy, I may substitute an item if I need to make up more kits, but there are already bunches ready to go!
