    Snow Queen Shadowbox & Winter Snow SALE! New Minis!

    Filed under Art Projects, Back in Stock, Giveaways, Laura Carson, Miniatures, Sale, The Snow Queen Kit

    We’re revisiting a beautiful shadowbox that Laura Carson made in 2018: Snow Queen Shadowbox. And as the TWO chipboard shadowbox items used in the project are back in stock, I’ve created a whole “Winter Snow Sale” around the items in Laura’s supply list (plus I added lots more snowy/sparkly items to bring the sale up to 70 items)!

    Back when this project was created, it was based around The Snow Queen Kit (since sold out). However, most everything you’ll need to recreate this pretty shadowbox is now available again!

    From Laura’s original post:
    Through the window you can see a little boy having a magical experience encountering the frosty Snow Queen. She sparkles in the frosty night and the boy looks on with wonder. Flanking the window scene are various snowflakes, frosty picks and beads.

    Below are a few of the items from Laura’s supply list (all on sale!)… and keep reading as there’s that related Winter Snow Sale, new miniatures, and a Giveaway based on this Snow Queen Shadowbox!

     
    What is New today?

    Lots of miniatures (those tiny Color Pencils are delightful) plus a Cathedral Windows Set from Tim Holtz!

     
    NEW Flash Sale: Winter Snow

    This is a special sale that evolved during the planning. It started with the supply list from Laura Carson’s Snow Queen Shadowbox (including the TWO back in stock chipboard items used in the project). Then it grew to include all kinds of snowy, sparkly things! 70 items!

    Here are the sale highlights:
    40% off on Collage Sheets! From vintage ladies dressed for winter to retro snowmen! See the sale collage sheets.
    50% off on Digital Images! See the sale digital images.
    30% off on EVERYTHING ELSE in this collection! From glitter & rhinestones to resin snowmen to snowflake charms to laser cut shapes (wood, acrylic and chipboard)!
    – Anything on clearance in this collection is marked down to 50% off!

    The sale ends SATURDAY NIGHT, January 18th at midnight PST. See the entire sale collection here!
