    Day 7 Theme & Giveaway: Alice in Wonderland

    Filed under Alice in Wonderland, Cat's Away... 2011, Giveaways, Kits, Sale

    Note: most of the links on this post no longer work, as we moved to a new Web site in 2018. However, you can see the supply list of items that are still available on the new site.

    Hey, it’s Day 7 (the final day) of the “While the Cat’s Away…” Giveaways! And today’s theme is Alice in Wonderland! And I have to say: I think I’ve saved the best for last. I love the colors in the new Engraved Garden collection (not specifically designed to be used with Alice in Wonderland, but with those flamingos (and fans and oddities like a sofa apparently in an overgrown Victorian jungle/greenhouse) I couldn’t resist.

    I went a little crazy and took extra photos, so click on all the photos in this top/overview section to see more details.

    And why are those bottle caps in the kit? Because Design Team Member Kristin Batsel create a great little tutorial on making Bottle Cap Jewelry.

    Here’s my final recap of how this works: I’ve gathered new (and current) items around a theme. All of them are on sale for everyone. And I’ve pulled together a lovely Giveaway Kit made from those goodies that will be awarded to one lucky person (click on the photo at right to see even more of the today’s Giveaway Kit).

    To enter the Alice in Wonderland Giveaway drawing all you have to do is leave a comment on this blog post (don’t forget to leave your email address, too, so I can contact the winner; note, your email address does not need to be made public).

    After midnight I’ll randomly pick the previous day’s winner.

    More info on the Holiday Closure & Giveaway Rules (including how you can get entered twice in each day’s drawing).

    Note: all the indented items below are included in the Giveaway Kit. There are some additional (related) things just(!) put on sale that are not in the Giveaway Kit (down at the bottom of this page). Some of the additional sale items are new, too!

    Halloween in Wonderland: Tea Party Scrapbook Paper

    Related Sale Items
    (not included in the Giveaway)

    Engraved Garden Ephemera Pack
    (at left)
    New & on Sale! A mix of die-cut cardstock and printed transparencies (plus a couple puffy, 3D pieces) in a Victorian illustration meets steampunk meets Alice in Wonderland design. I love the hot air balloons and the odd plaid sofa (and don’t forget the flamingo). Also includes numerous butterflies, 2 bicycles and a pocket watch.

    Set of 63 pieces.

    Engraved Garden Copper Foil Scrapbook Paper
    New & on Sale! Copper-foiled 12″ x 12″ cardstock sheet with almost gothic-arches (like trellises or windows in a greenhouse).

    Engraved Garden Bird Shimmer Vellum
    New & on Sale! 12″ x 12″ vellum (semi-transparent).

    Tacky Glue Stick
    New & on Sale! Such a simple solution: triangular shape for full coverage on corners!

    Aleene’s is a great all-purpose glue for craft projects. The quickest and easiest solution for adhering lightweight items together (like those bottle caps).

    Wonderland Tea Scrap Sheet
    Double-sided cardstock, printed with lots of images of Alice, the tea party, teacups, the White Rabbit and the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland. Perfect for gift tags or collage.

    8″ x 19″ sheet (folded in half for shipping). Note: These are not die cut or perfed; you’ll need to cut out the images (but most of the images are laid out so when you cut out the pic on one side, a full image automatically gets cut out of the reverse side; perfect for tags where both sides will show).

    Tea with Alice Clear Stamp Set
    6″ x 8″ set with 29 separate stamps. The story characters, along with many small accent stamps and sentiments, such as “it’s a very important date’ and “it’s an un-birthday party’, are perfect for creating scenes on your projects. Many of the characters can ‘hold’ things like the tea tray, cake or teapot.

    Once Upon a Time Clear Stamp Set
    Set of 9 “inchie” clear stamps (1″ square) plus an acrylic mounting block. Use one image repeatedly for a background (or mix some for a checkerboard effect, skipping every-other square).

    Soiree Clear Stamp Set
    8″ x 8″ set of clear stamps with tons of images for a tea party (or birthday party) or just fun banners to add text across the top or corner of a collage.

    Includes separate little words like “birthday”, “party”, “bash” and “soiree” (and a teapot, cupcake, cake, multiple cake stands and a candle). 37 stamps in the set!

    Giant Crown Rubber Stamp
    The unmounted version is part of the 99 Cent Stamp Sale!

     
    Here’s the recap of the Giveaway Rules. And check yesterday’s post for some “Cats & Kittens” items that are still on sale.

    So leave me a comment and tell your friends. And Happy New Year!
