Holiday Closure & After-Christmas Sale

I hope you stayed safe and warm on Christmas (a big feat this year!) and had lots of yummy food with loved ones. In case Santa didn’t bring you your heart’s desire (or if you’re just looking for a good deal in prep for 2023 projects)… It’s the first day of this week of While the Cat’s Away Sales & Giveaways! (Can you believe it? This is the 15th Annual Cat’s Away Sale!)

Remember, the shipping staff are on vacation till January 3rd, but for sale prices and/or freebies, I think you’ll be able to wait. Shipping will BEGIN on January 3rd, so you’ll need to be patient if you’re ordering during this sale. More info on the sale and holiday schedule.

On to today’s goodies: THREE sales, a FREE GIFT with all orders, and a Giveaway!
 

ONE: ALL Scrapbook Paper is on sale at 40% off! Plus clearance paper is on Sale at 50% off!

Note that this group includes single sheets, paper sets, vellum and rice paper! Over 250 items!

The paper sale ends Sunday night, January 1st, 2023 but first come, first served and most of the papers will not be reordered! I will merge orders (to save shipping) if you order multiple times during the sale.

TWO: ONE-DAY SALE on ALL Supplies from the Hearts Aflutter Mini Valentine Hutch!

Wow! Design Team Member Shannon Cooper has made (an amazing!) Hearts Aflutter Mini Valentine Hutch using a Wooden Hutch or Buffet, plus 80 bajillion items I will explain!

Beside the tall overview pic, there are 2 wide close-up photos below (showing 2 of those 3 jam-packed shelves), and there are more photos in Shannon’s blog post:

After the hutch was painted (including the Etched Wooden Banner I glued to the top), I lined the shelves with strips of polka dot paper. Tons of images from the Tiny Little Valentines Collage Sheet were cut out to fill the shelves. There are candy boxes, two valentines card boxes, two gift bags, and a (mini) handful of vintage valentine cards on the shelves and on the lacy border. Peeking out from behind a white heart cake on the top shelf is the cutest kitten you’ve ever seen. Thanks for making some extra tiny cat valentines, Leslie!

Whenever I am making a miniature hutch or shelf of some sort, I tend to crowd stuff in there, jamming as many tiny things as will fit. The project sort of turns into an “I Spy” game, which is kinda fun. Some of the things you’ll find are:
– a red jam jar
lemon cake with LOVE frosting
heart cookie cutter
polymer clay cake sprinkles in glass bottles
tiny resin cupcakes
pink strawberry cakes
candy jar pre-filled with red candies
tiny heart buttons
tiny heart-shaped chocolate cakes
– and an embossed gold Dresden heart
Whew!

Most of the minis in this project were altered just a tad, like the Red Canisters. (I just glued a heart from the Polymer Clay Valentine Hearts Slice Mix to the front!) Some of the jar lids were painted or colored with a red Sharpie before being filled with microbeads, or more polymer clay slice mix. The lid of the Frozen Yogurt Container on the top shelf was also colored with a red Sharpie, and I drew on a little heart.

The Tiny Lace Borders worked out perfectly for the shelves. The bottom lace was cut from a wider section and I added pink rhinestones along the top. The heart-shaped lace border was just trimmed and glued on. So quick!
