Note: most of the links on this post no longer work, as we moved to a new Web site in 2018. However, you can see the supply list items from Laura’s project that are still available on the new site.

Hey, it’s Saturday of the 4-day “Black Friday” sale! Today’s theme is Snowflakes.

Before I hand this post off to Miz Bella (Kim Ayers), here’s a short recap on how these themed sale days work:

Each day I’ll gather new (and current) items around a theme. And I’ll pull together a lovely Giveaway Kit made from those goodies that will be awarded to one lucky customer.

If you order on Saturday you’ll automatically be entered in the drawing for the Saturday Giveaway Kit, which is EVERYTHING Laura used in her “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” Artwork!

Hey, and who won yesterday’s Giveaway Kit? That would be Roberta Schinner! Click here for more info on all the gifts & freebies going on during the sale!

Free gift for every order over $20! The photo at left is a preview of the mini kit for the “Snowflakes” theme that will be included as a gift for every order over $20 on Saturday, November 30, 2013! (A mix of snowflakes and the sophisticated, Art Deco color palette from Laura’s artwork featured today!) No need to add anything to your cart — all orders over $20 (before tax or shipping) placed November 30, 2013 will receive the “Snowflakes” mini kit. Wait! I love those little papers… what papers are in that mini kit?

Today’s Theme: Snowflakes

Laura Carson MUST have called in her fleet of Alien Art Pods to come down for the holidays; and do her bidding once AGAIN.

First before I go into all of Laura’s newest project (“Baby, It’s Cold Outside“), I have to tell you about this New and On Sale! The Avenues Door-Shaped Album. It is a whopping 10″ x 4-3/4″ (plenty of space to embellish all sorts of ways), the set comes with six doors and each door has a different design on each side. You’ll love all the different things you’ll think up to use them for; either all together or individually!

Laura (and her invisible army of Alien Art Pods) has taken 5 of the door panels, hooked them together (accordion style) with On Sale! Butterfly Hinges (and don’t they look sweet, decorated with Brass Snowflake Charms?), all sorts of snowflake embellishments AND… used images from her New and On Sale! Baby It’s Cold Outside Collage Sheet throughout. It’s all come together to make it quite a beautiful piece.

Don’t you think this will make an awesome holiday display on your mantel or table? Even better is the winter theme, which would make this perfect to go beyond the holidays .All you have to do is look at those sassy babes bursting out of the front door, bundled up and wishing on the stars, or running through snowflakes and they make you smile!

In her most generous style, Laura will be walking you through the construction and design of each of the doors, and will also cover how she created the paper embellishments with not one, but two video tutorials. (I give up on wondering if Laura ever sleeps!)

Before you head on over to Laura’s blog to see the tutorial, you might want to take note of all the New and On Sale! items she used:
