    Stamperia Pads x2; Paper Theatres are back! Collage Sheet Sale!

    Filed under Art Projects, Back in Stock, Kristin Batsel, Lora Mahaffey, Miniatures, Paper Dolls/Theatres

    Lots of pretty papers (and artwork) today! First up: 2 paper pads are back in stock from Stamperia and I’ve tried to be good (timewise) so I’ve only grabbed one photo of sweet Design Team artwork for each. Next: there are some new miniatures and some fancy hinges (and some tiny box feet that would be cute for a tiny little paper theatre).

    THEN (oh my!) there is a BIG section of artwork in honor of the Small Paper Theatre Boxes being back! AND since this month’s theatre kit AND those Paper Theatre Boxes are related: a new Paper Theatre Collage Sheets Sale!
     

    The Cosmos 8×8 Paper Pad is so lovely, and perfect for star-gazing or mystical projects. 1 sheet each of 10 double-sided designs (each sheet is a different design). Plus the back sides of the front & back covers are 2 more designs! Kinda reminds me of all the Lucky Stars papers from the February Kit.

    And the art preview: Nichola Battilana made a Cosmos House Shrine. More info in the blog and/or see the supply list.

     

    The Time Is An Illusion Collection Pack is back! Ten 12″ x 12″ sheets of double-sided cardstock-weight scrapbook paper, each with a different design. Plus the back sides of the front & back covers are 2 more designs! Plus there are still a (very) few single sheets from the same collection.

    And the art preview: Susan Killam made Time is an Illusion: An Ode to Love. More info in the blog and/or see the supply list.

     

    What else is new today? Bits and Bobs!

    Beside all the cute new minis, those Fancy Filigree Hinges are back! I love them as they are AND I love them recolored antique silver (as Design Team Member Laura Carson did in her Spells & Potions Book project shown at right)! Here’s more info on that artwork.

     
    Back in Stock: Small Paper Theatre Boxes

    Do you remember these Small Paper Theatre Boxes? Practical chipboard boxes with a curved front window. They ship flat but easy to put together as the fold lines are scored. The inner dimensions are 5-3/4″ x 4-3/8″.

    I designed SIX collage sheets that fit these boxes! THREE are shown below (and all 6 are shown at the bottom of the Small Paper Theatre Boxes page — and all are on sale as part of the Paper Theatre Collage Sheets Sale!

    AND after that collage sheet preview row, there are 2 projects shown below using these Paper Theatre Boxes (including the photo down in the Giveaway section)! Plus the photo at left of the fab Venetian Paper Theatre by Nichola Battilana — see what I mean about practical boxes?! Here’s the supply list for Nichola’s little theatre.


    Lora Mahaffey’s The Great Escape is so fun! I love the depth (and all those contrasting orangy-yellows and royal blue).

    Lora used colored pens to make that bright sun from the vintage image in the Alchemical Spheres Collage Sheet. And also I love the cute wooden feet she added, painting them blue and adding gold stars!

    Here’s a link to Lora’s supply list.
