Fear not! Even though this item is now sold out, there are still links to related items on this page. (Plus lots of eye candy from the Design Team!)
The November theme is "Cigar Box Sweeties", inspired by the "Cigar Box Secrets" line from Prima. I love the designs and colors. I’m avoiding the "autumn leaves" colors/theme this year (though with the turquoise and gold colors in the papers, it kind of looks like a crisp autumn day).
I've designed EIGHT New coordinating collage sheets, including two sheets with paper models to put together mini cigar boxes (two sizes on each collage sheet, including a cute little one sized to hold a gift card). Plus some trims and fetching babes from vintage cigar box labels. With so many options, there are TWO kits this month.
I'm including FOUR collage sheets in the main kit and FIVE collage sheets in the add-on kit (and all are On Sale! in case you'd like to buy them separately).
First, in THIS Main November Kit: Cigar Box Sweeties:
- Cigar Label Banners Collage Sheet
- Turquoise Mini Cigar Boxes Collage Sheet
- Mini Cigar Box Trims Collage Sheet
- Cigar Box Label ATCs Collage Sheet
- Cigar Box Secrets Panatela Scrapbook Paper
- Cigar Box Secrets Corona Scrapbook Paper
- Cigar Box Secrets Presidente Scrapbook Paper
- Antique Bronze Fan Charm
- Resin Senorita Cameo
(And more 12" x 12" papers from the Cigar Box Secrets Line are in the Cigar Box Sweeties Add-On Kit.)
While I'm explaining what's in the kit, everything in this month's kit is also available to buy separately (until sold out). See the "We Also Recommend" section, below, for links/pics.
If you're reading this on November 2nd or 3rd, scoot over to the blog and see what's in today's Giveaway that includes BOTH kits!
Hey, there are even more goodies that would be fun trims for this kit, so regardless of entering the Giveaway, I'd recommended checking out the blog post.
And, in honor of this month's theme, I've put the ENTIRE Paper Dolls & Models Collage Sheets Section On Sale through November 16th! Bonus: as that section includes paper dolls, there are a big bunch of Alice in Wonderland sheets included in the sale!
And check out the adorable Cigar Box Mini Fairy Bed (at left) by Design Team Member Nichola Battilana! So sweet! Beside using the papers (and fan and cameo) from the kit, she added some of the 3mm Thin Gold Stripes Paper Tape and some Thin Fleur Dresden Borders. Read more on Nichola's blog (and it sounds like Mz Battilana is going to gift that artwork to some lucky stranger). And here's a link to Nichola's Supply List.
Note: artwork by more Design Team Members (using this kit) will be added throughout the month (so check back on this page, check the Gallery, or sign up for the Alpha Stamps Newsletter — see the link in the left column of this page).
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 October 16th, the November kit will be your first kit).
Kits from previous months will be available for purchasing until sold out.
And remember, here's a link to everything in this month's kit that is also available to buy separately. More coordinating goodies are listed on the blog post announcing this kit.
