Fear not! Even though this kit is now sold out, there are still links to the individual items that were sold as a kit on this page. (Plus lots of eye candy from the Design Team!)
I love the color palette in this new kit! I saw those silly birds on the Curiosity - Intrigue Scrapbook Paper and thought... hm, I can do something with that! And one thing led to another, and now there's An Odd Bird Kit.
I designed a New! collage sheet specifically for this kit: An Odd Bird Inchies Collage Sheet that has a mix of birds (in clothes and hats) and humans because I thought you could interpret "an old bird" to mean an actual bird or an eccentric person (and quite a few of the Design Team samples include people who have moved into the birdhouses included in the kit).
Plus I've included the New! Spanish Crowns Collage Sheet, that has tons of vintage crowns in various sizes. And the lovely Finches Collage Sheet as the colors are just perfect for this set.
An Odd Bird Kit also includes a Chipboard Birdhouse Shape (actually, 3 of them) and a gorgeous New! Copper Dresden Border Sampler Set. Plus 3 nice, big, full-size (and beautiful!) scrapbook papers.
While I'm explaining what's in the kit, everything in this month's kit is also available to buy separately (until sold out).
If you're reading this on February 2nd, scoot over to the blog and see what's in today's Giveaway that includes this kit! Hey, there are extra goodies that would be fun trims for this kit (and more related papers from the Curiosity and Looking Glass collections!) so regardless of entering the Giveaway, I'd recommended checking out the blog post.
And, in honor of this theme, I've put the ENTIRE Birds Theme On Sale! That's a HUGE section with everything from charms and embellishments to paper pads and collage sheets!
Check out the fun artwork by the Design Team on this page (or more in the Gallery).
All options are postage-paid! USA only.
(That's postage to get the kit to you — not return postage if you're participating in the swap.)
$15 per month
Kits are announced the first weekend of each month. However, if you sign up for a subscription, your kit will probably have already been mailed to you.
A note on timing for subscribers: the kits don't ship till your automatic payment is made; the recurring payment date is based on the date you signed up for the subscription. If you'd like to make a 1-time "catch up" payment so that you'll be first in line to receive all future kits, contact Customer Service.
If you buy a subscription after the 15th of the month, your first kit will be for the following month (so if you subscribe on February 16th, the March kit will be your first kit).
Kits from previous months will be available for purchasing until sold out.
If you are participating in the monthly swap, artwork should be postmarked by the last day of the month (but the due date for the February swap is March 7th). Note: You do not have to buy the monthly kit to participate in that month's swap (however, the collage sheets & other components are sold at a discount if purchased in the kit).
But you don't need to join the swap to enjoy playing with the goodies in the kit!
And remember, here's a link to everything in this month's kit that is also available to buy separately. Below (past the lovely samples by the Design Team!) are some coordinating papers and trims... more coordinating goodies are listed on the blog post annnouncing this kit.
