    Christmas Wishes Shadow Box Book + Giveaway!

    Filed under Art Projects, Christmas, Design Team, Giveaways, Newsletters

     December 19th Update:
     The BIG Christmas Sale will be ending
     Saturday Night, December 21st! AND all the
     sale prices have just been reduced another 10%!

     The Angels/Saints Collage Sheets section
     has been added to the Christmas Sale!

    Before I show off two (!) projects by Design Team Member Laura Carson, here’s a reminder that some Christmas sections are still On Sale!:
    ALL scrapbook paper is on sale! That includes the:
    - Christmas Paper Section (pads and single sheets)
    - Scrapbook Paper: Single Sheets
    - Scrapbook Paper Sets
    ALL Christmas Collage Sheets are on sale! (that’s a BIG section!)
    ALL Christmas Rubber Stamps are on sale!

    We wouldn’t want to leave you without a wide selection of sale goodies to choose from, in case you need supplies to work on your Christmas Stockings (or some Christmas cards or gifts).

    Ok.. on to the show! Laura has built a little box inside the Christmas Wishes Worn Book Cover and has turned into into a shadow box! (Clever!)

    I love the little 3D chimney she built on top of the book (outside “the house”) that’s directly above the interior fireplace scene (with an amazing array of toys and stockings).

    Visit Laura’s blog to learn how Laura built her scene inside a book cover. (And don’t forget to come back and enter the Giveaway drawing, because it includes EVERYTHING Laura used to make her Christmas Wishes Shadow Box Book!)

    And… check out Laura’s subtle, sophisticated Edwardian Christmas Ornaments! (With some pink, mint and cream confectionery New and On Sale! papers you might not expect during this season.) Laura started out with a base of On Sale! Layered Chipboard Ornaments, images from Parfumerie #1 and Parfumerie #2 Collage Sheets, assorted embellishments and ends them off with sweet New! 1 Inch Mini Tassels. (Psst: more tassel colors, too.)

    More new goodies are below (some in Laura’s projects, and some just good trims for a Christmas shadow box), and some are also included in today’s Giveaway!)


     December 7th Update:
     The Christmas Wishes Giveaway Winner is…

    Hooray! A Christmas Wishes Giveaway! That’s right, from the Christmas Wishes Worn Book Cover to the Olive Green Crinkled Paper Ribbon for the big green bow, we’ve included EVERYTHING you’ll need to make your own Christmas Wishes Shadow Box Book!
