    While the Cat’s Away Day 1: Marie Antoinette

    Filed under Art Projects, Cat's Away... 2013, Giveaways, Marie Antoinette, Newsletters

    I hope you stayed warm and dry on Christmas and had lots of yummy food with loved ones. (And I hope you had/have power… those ice storms back east look scary.)

    And in case Santa didn’t bring you your heart’s desire (or if you’re just looking for a good deal in prep for 2014 projects)… It’s the first day of this week of While the Cat’s Away Giveaways!

    And today’s theme is Marie Antoinette! Beside a beautiful Queen Bee Journal by Teri Calia (and pretty much everything Teri used in her book is in the Giveaway), we also have some new Marie-themed scrapbook papers (On Sale, too)!

    And ALL Marie Antoinette Collage Sheets are On Sale! And that includes FOUR new Marie Antoinette collage sheets Teri create for today’s project:
    - Floral Marie Antoinette Collage Sheet
    - She Could Be Marie Collage Sheet
    - Marie Antoinette Finely Drawn Collage Sheet
    - More Marie Antoinette Collage Sheet

    I love the torn paper “frame” on the front cover, mixing 2 music scrapbook papers and a new script paper (all 3 are On Sale!):
    - New! Nostalgic Music Scrapbook Paper
    - New! Nostalgic Script Scrapbook Paper
    - Merry Notes Scrapbook Paper

    Plus, those two On Sale! printed canvas ribbons are such a quick way to spruce up simple rings binding the book together. Here’s a link to see Teri’s complete Supply List. View more photos in the Gallery.

     December 27th Update:
     The Marie Antoinette
     Giveaway Winner

    Hooray! A Marie Antoinette Giveaway! Beside the items that Teri used in her artwork, Miz Meghan also pulled a few extra ribbons and crowns (and I added the new Vintage Silk Velvet Ribbon – Rose Pink and French Desserts Stickers)! Here’s a full list of 24 items in the Giveaway.

    Here’s how these While the Cat’s Away DAILY Sales and Giveaways will work: I’ve gathered items around a theme and put together a Giveaway Kit that will be awarded to one lucky person.

    To enter the Marie Antoinette Giveaway drawing all you have to do is leave a comment BELOW on THIS blog post TODAY (December 26, 2013) by midnight (PST).

    After midnight I’ll randomly pick the previous day’s winner. So make sure to check back tomorrow to see who won and to see what’s on offer for Day 2 of the Sales & Giveaways!

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

    And please remember: Our offices are now closed. The whole “While the Cat’s Away” theme is ’cause I’m the only one here! For more info about shipping (which will start when the staff are all back on 1/2/14) and the sale in general, please see the While the Cat’s Away…” Daily Giveaways: Year 6! overview page.

    A final note: Even though our offices are closed, orders for DIGITAL Collage Sheets and Digital Images are still fulfilled in real time!
