    New Art, New SALE, New Products, New FREE Gift, New Giveaway!

    Filed under Giveaways, Halloween, Jewelry, Newsletters, Sale, Tristan Robin Blakeman

    That super-creative (and glittery!) Guest Designer Tristan Robin Blakeman has made a Romantic Vintage Style Tag Album (with lots of tutorial tips and photos!) using Tall Tag Folders to create a mini album… and it’s beautiful!

    From Tristan’s blog post:

    When I got the supply box from Alpha Stamps with the materials to create a mini album from the terrific Tall Tag Folders, I was excited to see all the fun things I was going to be working (well, it was really like playing!) with!

    Beautiful papers, including the Graphic 45 Floral Shoppe collection, several styles German scrap images and borders, silk ribbons, tag blanks, miniature paper flowers, small metal pressing embellishments, delightful collage sheets, and – of course! – the requisite Tall Tag Holders!

    Aren’t those tags beautiful? I love all the attention Tristan paid (cutting & layering collage sheet images over scrapbook paper and Dresden roses; plus adding paper flowers, ribbons & paper butterflies).

    Beside these 2 photos of Tristan’s project, be sure to visit his blog for tons more photos and tips. And see Tristan’s supply list, too.
     

    New Products!

    Just a snippet from the new products are shown below (hm… that new Alice in Wonderland Props Silicone Mold Set got me thinking about Alice. See below for what that thought turned into!)

     
    NEW Alice or Halloween Pendant FREE Gift Kit! AND Pendants & Settings Sale!

    You know… I had intended to make some round images (sized for today’s new pendants) that were all flowery (kinda like Tristan’s artwork). But then… it turned all Halloweeny! And then the White Rabbit and Alice (and the Mad Hatter) started interrupting, too!

    So this custom mini collage sheet shown (with images that fit 25mm (1″) diameter pendants emerged. It is part of this FREE Gift Kit!

    In addition to one of these beauties, I’m also including EITHER:
    – one of the new Bronze Setting for 25mm Round Cabochons (with a matching 25mm glass cab)
    OR
    – one of the new Black Metal Setting for 25mm Round Cabochons (with a matching 25mm glass cab)

    ALL ORDERS now through Monday, July 9th will get one of the new Alice or Halloween Pendant Gift Kits FREE!

    And there’s a related SALE! Let’s try out some new features on this new site! This is a 25% off discount coupon: enter promo code PENDANTS when you check out. (The discount will only effect the items in your cart from the sale section… read on!)

    25% off the Pendants & Settings Section, including collage sheets sized for pendants or ornaments (like that Skeleton Slides Collage Sheet shown at right), plus metal settings & glass cabochons) — the discount is on top of current sale prices! The coupon expires at midnight on Saturday night, July 7th.
     

    Hooray for the Pendants & Tags & Alice Giveaway!

    Wow… this Giveaway is wandering around a bit, but I think they’ll be a fun group of goodies to play with.

    To start with: everything in the Cabs & Settings Section, including all the new settings announced today (shown at left)… and I’m including multiple 25mm Round Glass Cabochons so you’ll have one to fit all the matching settings!)

    Plus a 12mm Setting Bronze Steampunk Diving Helmet (that you’ll already be getting a couple different cabs to fit).

    (Psst… do you remember the fun creature in her Mad Scientist’s Laboratory that Design Team Member Laura Carson made using that diving helmet with one of the 12mm Glass Cat Eyes? You’ll be getting both of those items!)

    AND these items from Tristan’s supply list:
    Tall Tag Folders (2 of them)
    – Both sizes of Manila Tags

    Mini French Labels Collage Sheet
