Brand New Christmas Goodies + Frida Niche Shrine By Kim Collister

Happy Weekend Everyone! We have so many fun new goodies in the shop this week. First, we have the awesome new Stickles and Liquid Pearl holiday sets! The custom colors are only found in the sets, so grab them up while you can! We also have some wonderful new Christmas Ornaments, Tiny Snowmen, and fabulous Miniatures! Oh yeah!

Art Time Feature With Kim Collister!  

Design Team Member Kim Collister has a beautiful tutorial for you Frida fans! As always her piece is wonderfully thought out, using so many symbols to pay tribute to such a fantastic artist! Make sure to hop on over to Kim's blog and read her entire post. She also gives you an amazing tip for turning the Niche Shrine into a music box. Stunning piece Kim!

 Be sure to check out the full tutorial!

Tombstone Garland Tutorial By Sherry Matthews!

Design Team Member Sherry Westfall Matthews has a wonderful idea for you, turning the Masonite Tombstones and Sugar Skull Ornaments into awesome Halloween banners! She also shows you how to achieve a fabulous wood grain look. Great project Sherry! You can find Sherry's tutorial here:

This is a great way to use up extra Tombstones you may have. And you can mix n' match the different sets!

Inspiration By Chrissy Colon!  

These Christmas villages by Desgin Team Member Chrissy Colon are so amazing! Read more from Chrissy's post below and don't forget to hop over to her blog!
From Chrissy: "Since we are starting to get the jump on Christmas, I have a cool one for you! It uses two kits that you've seen me use before! Another tip, break out that beading wire and put it to good use to create "flying" elements in your work. It's one of my most favorite tricks to do on a project like this.
This project uses loooooads of Retro Cafe Art Gallery goodies all of which are linked in the blog post!"

Snowman Inspiration By Kim Collister!  

Design Team Member Kim Collister created these darling Snowmen for an ornament swap, and they are sure to make you smile! We love the beautiful winter colors, and of course all the glitter! Such handsome Snowmen Kim! They are fantastic!
(Another fun option Kim and I discussed, is to add a layer of transparency film between the frame and niche so you can add glitter, sequins, etc. and turn them into shakers!)
Inspiration Snowman Shrine Kit:

She Also Used Our Mini Ornate Frame Cut Outs (for the niches), Christmas Word Paper Cuts, Heart Cut Outs, and Snowflake Charms. Our Black and Orange Pearl Pens would work great for the faces, and our Glitter Snow is a great option too!

And as of today,  we have TINY SNOWMEN shrines too!

Special Announcement: Many of you that follow me on Facebook already know that I'm expecting a precious baby girl in November. In order to spend time with our new addition and enjoy the holidays
with family, the website will be temporarily on vacation from November 15th through the end of January. If you need any Christmas goodies (or other goodies) for swaps, ornament making, etc. now is a great time to order! xoxo Kristin
