    More Easy Gifts & Ornaments! New Minis & Site-wide Sale!

    Filed under Art Projects, Back in Stock, Gifts/Decorations, Giveaways, Kristin Batsel, Miniatures, Shannon Cooper

    Before I show off more easy and cute Christmas ornaments by TWO Design Team Members (and new items and a new Giveaway!)…

    Save an EXTRA 10% off the ENTIRE SITE! That’s 10% above current sale prices! (Even if the item is already marked down as a clearance item) AND it includes the new supplies below, too!

    Use Promo Code: LAST-CHANCE when checking out. No minimum purchase required (excludes gift certificates/cards, shipping, taxes).

    Last chance? What? Well, if you want to get your goodies by Christmas, you’d better act fast! Though if you’re like me, a package to keep me happily crafting during the cold weeks after Christmas would be welcomed, too!

    The coupon discount ends at midnight (PST) SUNDAY NIGHT, December 15, 2019!

     
    Presents for the Pets by Design Team Member Shannon Cooper

    Eek! How cute are these! Beside using them as gift boxes for pet treats, these would be perfect for packaging up home-made cookies! (Ok… I am not suggesting you give cookies to your pets.)

    Shannon started with the Kraft Milk Cartons we featured last month, added scrapbook paper, images from 2 collage sheets, and tied ribbon on top from the ever-popular Mini Bronze Butterfly Paper Clips. Super quick to whip out a few of these in an afternoon!

    Nice job, Shannon! read more (and see more photos) on Shannon’s blog post plus you can see her full supply list here. (Psst: check below in the Giveaway section for more new ornaments!)

     
    What is NEW or Back in Stock today?

    Some adorable miniatures (the Mini Metal Shadowbox and Glass Of Milk & Cookies are back in stock after a very long wait) plus the new Mini Candy Jar and Mini Brandy Decanter with Glasses in the first row are fab! Plus the Hampton Brick Scrapbook Paper (not shown below) is also back in stock after a long wait!

     
    Hooray for the Wooden Christmas Ornaments Giveaway!

    That crafty Design Team Member Kristin Batsel made 3 super easy and super cute ornaments, each using a wooden ornament shape as the base! (Scroll down just a bit to see all 3.)

    EVERYTHING in Kristin’s Supply List is included in today’s Giveaway!

    I’m only highlighting a few of the EIGHT spiffy items in the supply list/Giveaway:
    - (obviously) both shapes of wooden ornaments
    - Polymer Clay Christmas Candy Slice Mix (getting quite a workout lately! the snowflakes on the ornament at left are from this set)
    - Lacquered Holly & Berry Picks (also shown at left)
    - (last but definitely not least) NEW 3mm Fused Pearls – Red, Pink & White! Teeny tiny and also shown above. (Beside being used around the edges of both round ornaments, Kristin also used these pearls on her recent The Jolly Christmas Houses of Jingle Lane and Hanging House Ornaments!)
