Mosaic Majesty Shrine By Sherry Matthews + New Shrine Kits


The other day it occurred to me that some of our Mini DOTD Shrine Kits would look awesome in a larger size. A size that would be great for Sandra Evertson Relics & Artifacts and so much more. They are slightly less deep proportionally too, so images and assemblage bits will really pop. I started with my two favorite designs! And they are both on sale this week! We also have lots of dresden back in stock this week too.
