24 NEW Collage Sheets, 5 NEW Coffee Break Design Shrine Kits, + a GIVEAWAY!


Hooray! We have some WONDERFUL new goodies in the shop! For starters, 24 new Collage Sheets by Cassandra Vancuren. We've got Theaters, Owls, Dresses, Ephemera Backgrounds, and so much more! They are all fabulous, but if I had to be pressed for a favorite, it would have to be the owls!


I'm also excited that my two favorite Shadow Box Shrine Kit Designs, the Pocket Watch and Retro TV, are now available as Trinket Shrines and Tiny Trinket Charms!



Here are some super cute earrings I whipped up using the new Tiny TV Trinket Charms and Tiny Pocket Watch Trinket Charms. For the TV, I left the masonite natural and simply added an image of Superman, coated with Diamond Glaze. For the Pocket Watches, I added a layer of Black Gilders Paste and then some   on the top. Inside I added watch parts and covered them with Diamond Glaze. Finally, I attached Earring Posts using E6000. So easy and fast!


And, our Exquisite Shrine is now available in LARGE! I hope you agree this is great news!

........................................................................


Our Design Team has some wonderful samples for you highlighting the new Collage Sheets and other goodies. The above journal page is by Bianca Mandity. The two new Collage Sheets used are Blue Ephemera Backgrounds and AlphaBianca also used the Cracked Egg Stencil, Egg-splosion Stencil, and Large Egg Background Stencil. The chicken came from one of her drawings - isn't he fabulous?


Next up, Design Team member Jennifer Ingle created this adorable card using the Altered Owl Collage Sheet and Altered Tree Collage Sheet. Such a sweet, clean design. Jennifer makes the most wonderful cards and makes it look like a piece of cake, though I know from personal experience it's not! You rock the cards Jennifer!


Design Team member Gerri Herbst created this gorgeous piece titled "Beautiful Together". It's a standing reversible black and ivory ATC. The new Collage Sheet Gerri used was the Ephemera Backgrounds ATC Collage Sheet. She also used DP122 for the faces, Masonite Heart Cut-Outs, Tidings Tissue Tape, and Silver Stickles.


Fantastic work Design Team!!!

Ohhh, I almost forgot to mention, I'm also in love with our new Vintage License Tags! They make this jewelry makers heart melt!
