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!)
Our October kit is Goblins! This kit took a bit of a detour from “ghosts and goblins” to (just) “goblins.” I found lots of images, from cute (like the adorable Brownies) to more sinister (though those ghosts may be lurking around for a future project). There are some trolls and dwarves mixed in, too. Plus the Brimstone Bulletin Scrapbook Paper (just one of four papers included in the kit) has some fun faux-vintage labels like “Prize Pumpkins... grown with care & enriched with goblin spit.”
I'm including FOUR collage sheets in the kit (and all are On Sale! in case you'd like to buy them separately):
New! Goblins Collage Sheet (A nice mix of styles here, from impish to a little creepy. And some of these are used in Design Team Member Kristin Batsel's Gravestones and Goblins artwork shown below.)
New! Green Goblins Collage Sheet (Not all green, but those green guys at the top, all reaching and grasping, have lots of collage art possibilities.)
New! Goblin Trees Collage Sheet (From the trees themselves being fairly creepy to scary creatures in the trees (and a whole flock of little goblin imps... following the Pied Piper? I don't remember that part of the story).)
New! Goblin Labels Collage Sheet (Oh my, just look at those cuties! Labels for either Goblin Grog or Goblin Potions. And note the tiny text on the larger labels ("Don't you want what they had?" and "When you need time to hide").) The largest labels are approx. 2-1/8" x 3-1/2" (with a bit of trim on the sides, they could be a background for an ATC or they perfectly fit the width of a Medium Manila Tag). Also shown in the small photo with 2" Glass Bottles.
The kit also includes:
- Four full-size sheets of New and On Sale! Scrapbook Paper
- Brimstone Bulletin Scrapbook Paper
- Brimstone Damask Scrapbook Paper
- Arsenic and Lace Scrapbook Paper - Floral
- Double Dot Chevron Scrapbook Paper - Charcoal
- And for some trims: strips of Baroque and Thin Looped Black Dresden Borders.
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 October 5th, 6th or 7th, scoot over to the blog and see what's in today's Giveaway that includes this kit and a few goodies used in Kristin's artwork!
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 extended the Halloween Sale through October 26th!
- The ENTIRE Halloween Theme Section (And that also includes the scrapbook papers in the kit, plus a huge group of charms),
- The ENTIRE Halloween Collage Sheets Section (And that also includes the FOUR new collage sheets in the kit!),
- The ENTIRE Halloween Rubber Stamps Section
And check out the Gravestones and Goblins (at left) by Kristin Batsel! I love the goblins draped around the gravestones, and the little touches like the tiny bits of moss "growing" on the stonework. Read more on Kristin's blog (including tips on cutting the little niches in the tops of the paper mache tombstones). And here's a link to Kristin'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 or sign up for the Alpha Stamps Newsletter — see the link in the left column of this page). Plus, see more artwork by the Design Team using this kit 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 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 annnouncing this kit.
