I LOVE the colors in this month's kit!
This Beauty and the Beast Kit is lavish and romantic, featuring small patterned papers from the Midnight Masquerade line, plus a new gatefold shrine card, 3 new collage sheets and a trio of silver charms!
Let's start with the new, exclusive Taj Mahal Folding Card! A folding card (lightweight chipboard, scored for easy folding). Approx 6" tall x 4" wide when the door are folded shut.
The kit includes TWELVE 6" x 6" sheets of scrapbook paper (quarter page cuts from all the designs in the Midnight Masquerade 12x12 Patterns & Solids Pad). See the wide photos below for some samples (love, love, love all the harlequin diamond patterns).
On to the colorful collage sheets!
Simply Beautiful Beauty and the Beast Collage Sheet - New!
I must say: I have been hoarding these illustrations for about a decade... waiting for just the right kit to use them in. See the photo below with the close-up of the lion (beast) in a Charles II wig!
Smaller Crane Beauty and the Beast Collage Sheet - New!
Similar to the Walter Crane Beauty and the Beast Collage Sheet but smaller images (sized for the center panel of the Taj Mahal Folding Card but will work well for ATCs, too). Includes a couple additional images: Beauty's father picking the rose and being confronted by the Beast, and her father returning home with the rose.
Beauty and Varied Beasts Collage Sheet - New!
Such creative illustrators, with the beast appearing as a bear or a boar (and one looks like a werewolf).
(And remember: all the collage sheets are on sale for 15% off (and the digital downloads are on sale for 40% off!), so those new collage sheets are on sale, too!)
Finally: 3 new charms! All enchanted characters from the film version of the story:

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.
Design Team Member Laura Carson made a Beauty & the Beast Triptych (see the wide photo below). More info in the blog and/or see the supply list.
