An Almost Valentine Wonderbox plus Charms & Filigree SALE!

Filed under Art Projects, Back in Stock, Giveaways, Kristin Batsel, Sale, Valentine's Day

We’re revisiting a fun shadowbox that Design Team Member Kristin Batsel made in 2015: An Almost Valentine Wonderbox. That raw chipboard shadowbox is long since sold out BUT I’ve just had 2 shadowboxes with rows of square cubbies cut!

See the photo at right for the 2 new shadowboxes: Shadowbox with Square Cubbies – 6×6 or Shadowbox with Square Cubbies – 8×8. They’re both 1″ deep. The cubbies are bit under 2″ x 2″ (approx 1-7/8″ square).

Back to Kristin’s colorful project: a galaxy of little 2″ x 2″ collages (all united by the turquoise and red color palette). There is so much to take in… and I love the way Kristin mixed in everything from Juliet, circus elephants, the Queen of Hearts, and Casanova… all the way through the Easter bunny!

And at the top: brass cupids hold a banner made from washi tape and baker’s twine. (Check below, too, as those cupids and the brass header at top are both back in stock!)

Below are a few of the items from Kristin’s supply list (yep, many are still available!)… and keep reading as there’s a related sale and a Giveaway based on this shadowbox!

What else is New today?

Oooh! check out the new (and back in stock) raw brass stampings below! Some are back as Kristin used them in her shadowbox. And these brass pretties (in the “charms” section though they have no holes per se) have inspired the new FLASH SALE, which means they are on sale, too!
