    New Tim Holtz for Halloween!

    Filed under Halloween, Newsletters, Sale, Tim Holtz

    And new swap art posted! (And a swap contest prize announcement!)

    Yay! New Tim Holtz items from the Summer CHA trade show have started arriving! And since we’re in the midst of multiple Halloween-related swaps (thus: Halloween Theme Section Sale), I decided to put ALL of the new Tim Holtz goodies On Sale, too!

    Starting with the Laboratorie 12×12 Paper Stash (shown at right)… sigh. It’s a pad of 20 double-sided sheets! A nice, spooky collection — and the full pages (12″ x 12″ designs) are also reproduced in 6″ x 6″ size, then again in a grid at even smaller 2″ x 2″, ATC, and border sizes.

    Next up is the coordinating Laboratorie Tissue Tape (shown at left), a versatile set including the periodic table of elements. 4 rolls, 10 yds each.

    4 more new items are below (well… 5 if you include the red version of the Trimmings Set (farther below) that isn’t exactly Halloween themed). And remember: they’re all On Sale

     Thursday Newsletter Recap

    Wow! Did you catch Design Team Member Laura Carson's amazing Halloween Carnival? (Complete with video tutorials, challenges with fabulous prizes, and free images?!)

    And see that "Haunted Carousel" at right? Both it (and the "Spinning Cauldrons" and "Ride a Witches Broom" Rides) all spin!

    Laura has designed TWELVE New! collage sheets, with all the signage, characters and props needed for the carnival's attractions (4 collage sheets each for the rides, games, and the carnival itself). PLUS, all the images from the collage sheets are available as silhouetted PNG files sold in 3 sets. (Here's a link to see all of them, including the digital sets.)

    And did I mention: everything needed for Laura's Carnival (including the new collage sheets and digital sets) are On Sale! I've gathered everything together into a new 2013 Halloween Carnival Event Supplies section.

    Psst! Photos of specific carnival booths are on each of the collage sheet pages. And here's a repeat of the link to Laura's Tutorial.
