    Filed under Art Projects, Back in Stock, Christmas, Halloween, Laura Carson

    What is new today?

    It’s an odd group of goodies but I like it: A little Christmas, a little Halloween — and both themes include birds. Hence the theme of today’s new sale! AND there’s a related Giveaway (revisiting a bright cardinal-adorned Winter triptych by Design Team Member Laura Carson)!

    So back to the new (and back in stock) items: beside the items highlighted below, see all 10 items!

    Here’s examples of clearance items (or clearance charms) in the sale (50% off)!

    Pretty in Red Giveaway!

    As I mentioned, we’re revisiting the Pretty in Red Triptych by Design Team Member Laura Carson! I thought of it when I saw that the adorably tiny (real) feathered cardinals were available again.

    Laura created a new collage sheet specifically for this triptych back in January 2017 (and though you can just see one of the colorful panels at right, there are 3… a preview is below).

    Here’s some background about the artwork from the original blog post:

    The inspiration for this triptych were the lovely ladies dressed for winter, which you will find on my new Pretty in Red Collage Sheet — the red is a nod to Valentine’s.

    To complement the color scheme of their coats, I’ve used silver, grey, red and white papers and embellishments.

    Beautiful work, Laura! You can see learn more and see more photos in Laura’s blog post. Plus here’s her supply list. (Remember, we moved to a new web site since then so see the items on that link above.)

    AND EVERYTHING in that list is included in today’s Giveaway drawing! From the triptych to the collage sheet and the silver trims (and of course, the red cardinal)!
