    New Songbirds & Snowy Houses Kit; New Houses & Trims & Papers, too!

    Filed under Christmas, Collage Sheets, Giveaways, Songbirds & Snowy Houses Kit

    Songbirds & Snowy Houses Kit

    Yes, I know it’s actually Halloween on the day I’m announcing this Christmas kit, but it’s past time to start your holiday crafting!

    This kit includes TWELVE sheets (all the designs) from the new Vintage Christmas Songbirds & Sheet Music 6×6 Paper Pad (which inspired the theme of this kit).

    All those nostalgic Victorian images led to some trims:
    Small Red Mulberry Paper Christmas Poinsettias (3 are in the kit),
    Larger Miniature Candy Canes (2 are in the kit), and
    Translucent Vellum – Antique Calligraphy (half an A4 sheet).

    Plus I designed a set of Tall Houses (an idea that has been bouncing around for awhile) — that could be a village or used singly as tall tags to decorate. Note: the middle height one (5-3/4″ tall) is in this kit (just short enough that you could cover the entire height with a sheet from the new paper pad).

    And some chipboard house trims: a snowy icicle roof trim and 3 windows from the new Windows for Tall Houses set. Note: there’s a also a new set of Tall 3D Houses that fit the roof trims and windows (more info below).

    Finally, a new collage sheet: Tiny Winter Birds Half Sheet! A sweet little group of cardinals and robins from vintage greeting cards and other ephemera. They are sized to perch on a window (or behind a window) in the chipboard windows set from this kit.

    Go see the new kit for more info and photos on all 8 kit items (plus related new items, a new sale and a Giveaway are below).

     
    More New Items!

    Beside that cute new 3D Tall House Set I mentioned, there’s a new Victorian Christmas Custom 12×12 Paper Set for some larger sheets similar to the vintage prints in the kit.

    In addition to the new kit (shown in another photo at left), I’ve picked out a couple more items that coordinate nicely:
    Small Painted Metal Rocking Horse
    2 Inch German Fir Tree

    AND, 3 collage sheets (from the new sale — more info below) that will give you more birds or antique images like the prints in the kit papers:

    Winter Fun ATCs Collage Sheet
    Vintage Toys Collage Sheet
