New Goods in the Shop, News, and a GIVEAWAY!
Happy Heart Day to you all! Now that Valentine's Day is here, it's time to start thinking about the craftacular holidays ahead. We are all set with St. Patrick's Day goodies if you need any, so moving ahead that means Easter and Spring! We have over 40 BRAND NEW things for you to play with, and I wanted to get them out before show preparation is in full effect. We will be vending at the Heirloom Stamping and Paper Arts Convention in Indianapolis March 3rd and 4th. I would love to meet some of you if you can make it! We will have TONS of Coffee Break Design supplies and so much more.
First, we have GORGEOUS German Cotton Spun Mushrooms imported from Germany. I think the photos say it all. They look almost good enough to eat! And of course I had to get them ALL. So yes they have their very own category.
We also have 12 Brand New Coffee Break Design Stencils. These were actually designed for a local store, Homespun, that sells modern handmade goods, but I can share them with you as well. Dinosaurs, Mustaches, Octopi, etc. are definitely not uncommon in this store! It's cool to be able to expand beyond the Scrapbooking and Stamping stores. They carry my handcrafted jewelry as well :).
And how about some adorable bunny ears for your collage peeps! The latest addition to our Collage Cut-Outs Accessory Line. Add some Glasses and a Mustache while you're at it!
Here's an ATC I made with the Bunny Ears and Chocolate Bunnies. I just couldn't wait to play!
And yes, I played. I used one with the channels popped out to make a necklace, and one with the channels left in place (to become a pin). Here's a list of the materials I used for these:
Circle Egg Trinket, ATC Nesting Collage Sheet, 25mm Crystal Clear Cabochon, Diamond Glaze, Ball Chain Kit, Open Balls, Mod Podge, Patina and Black Gilders Paste, and 10mm Red Cotton Spun Mushroom.
The crackled one is my favorite. I used paint, 2 step crackle, distress ink, and Gilders Paste to get the final effect. Click on the photos for a closer look.
Loved working on the backs too. I almost hate to cover one with a pin-back.
1. Leave a comment on THIS post and let me know which of the NEW GOODIES you like best.
2. On Wednesday March 7th (the day after my birthday!), I'll use a random number generator to select FIVE winners to receive one of the awesome new Egg Trinket Shrine Kits!
