Well, hello there! I'm sorry to disappear like that. But the truth is I have been working around the clock getting my holiday shop update ready. Turns out I had more ideas than time this year. But, I will have lots of new, fun stuff in the shop on Monday morning. I will more than likely continue to add things since, as I said I have lots of ideas, and also, we have plenty of time before Christmas still. I thought I would show you a few peeks today and will pop in over the weekend to share more. The above little winter wonderland scence might seem familiar to you. That's because it was a Little Pink Box project last year, but I liked it so much I decided to bring it into the shop this year. So that is one of several new kits that will be a part of the holiday shop update.
In addition to several vintage December daily kits that I will show you later, I also made several holiday themed deluxe hankie kits. They have a sweet hankie journal kit along with vintage fabric, trims, buttons, millinery, and vintage ephemera too. I've included vintage wallpaper, vintage wrapping paper, calendar pages from the 1940's, vintage holiday tags, etc. Plenty of materials to make a super cute little memory book or journal.
And once again I am bringing back my collage angel kit. She is just so near and dear to my heart as she was the very first kit Isold 8 years ago this month! I can't believe I have been running this crafty little business of mine since 2006! I feel so blessed to get to do what I do, and of course I couldn't do that, if you all didn't love what I do and buy my kits and supplies! I'm going to be running some promotions, doing some giveaways, free gifts, and more starting next week, to show you how much I appreciate you all so you'll want to stay tuned!
But back to my sweet collage angel ornaments, I made a new example this year from the same kit. The kit actually has the materials to make 3 angels, but has enough vintage wallpaper and other papers that you could make a ton of ornaments! It's like a vintage wallpaper pack combined with an ornament kit.
I made this one by layering vintage wallpaer with a pretty rose print wax paper (included in the kits) and covering the body with mica flakes. (also included in the kits!) The wings were made by layering more vintage wallpaper.
I'm curious, what is your favorite color palette for this years holiday season? For me I seem to be drawn to the pale pink and gold. But also surprisinly, I'm kind of liking some vintage black and white Christmas items. In fact, I plan to have the same December daily kits I had last year, but also some different color themes as well. (some of which will just be "one of" kits)
I'll share those later, but I can let you know that this kit will make a return, along with some varying materials.
So, I'll be back tomorrow with more peeks at what is to come with the hoiday shop update. I can't wait to show you everything I've been working on!
Happy weekend! Cerri
