January Kits!!! (and a giveaway). . .
So I know its a little early, but being that it is almost Christmas Eve and I have vowed to take a few days off, here are the kit previews for January!

This month's Papercrafting Kit has been a vision in my head for a long time. I wanted something vintagy, crisp, romantic - pale, pale pinks, silver greys, snow white (you get the picture)! The pale pink feathers are the icing on the cake (and you get several)!! Lots of exclusive things here from some new Silver Bella Friends (Hope Wallace, Cari Kraft and Heidi from Birds of a Feather)!

And just in case you thought it was just for girls. . .

This month's project kit is also divine!! It is an acrylic postage stamp album from Scrapworks with tons of vintage goodies (including this tiny repro valentine postcard I had made)!

And. . . just a little peek at the Add-On kit, chock full of vintage bliss!!!

New Years Eve - 12:00 midnight central time (you'll be up anyway, right)?!?!?

Sale of past kits will continue through January as well so be sure to check out those that are still left.

And. . . as promised, let's do a giveaway of some Open House stuff! The winner gets a vintage crystal salt and pepper shaker full of German Glass Glitter and a mix of other vintage goodies! Just post between now and January 2nd for a chance to win!! (I will post a winner on the 3rd).

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of you!!

As promised- new kit and Past Kit Sale!!

So I know I said January, but I decided there was no reason everyone should have to wait! Right now, under Past Kits you will find all remaining kits on sale for 25% - 70% off! All but two of these have less then 10 available. The August Project Kit (the ice cream box) is not on sale but can be found here (I just re-stocked this is you were wanting one)!
I have also added a few more of this month's sold out Papercrafting Kit. Only a few though. . .
And. . . I added 6 leftover class kits from the Open House (they do not include the Christmas Photo Tag Kit included with the class and are at a lower price). You will find these under Limited Edition Kits.
And. . . finally, I have added the Mary Engelbreit Bird Book Kit under Limited Edition Kits as well. I have almost an endless supply of these since it is mostly JBS product so there should be no problem meeting the demand.
It is 6:00 central time and everything is up now at the site!
Stay tuned this week for a fun giveaway!!

Hours: 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
What you will find:
  1. Past JBS kits at discounted prices (sale to be offered on the website as well in January).
  2. Various scrapbook supplies (papers, embellishments, etc.) at deep discounts (bits and pieces left over from more then 2 years of kit making)!
  3. Vintage and antique bits and baubles (jewelry pieces, trims, buttons, letters, flash cards, playing cards, cabinet cards, ledger papers, music paper, repro. millinery flowers, old album pages, German scrap, findings, etc.).

  5. Vintage and antique organizing containers and decor items (old scales, apothecary bottles, flower frogs, etc.).
  6. The entire JBS line of products!
  7. Original jewelry and collage pieces.

Here is a little preview of some of the goodies mentioned above (bad light- sorry. Had to use the flash)!

As mentioned before, we will also provide you with a directory to local antique/junk malls as well as directions out to Franklin (40 minutes away) where you find a ton of antiquing (including my FAVORITE place - Scarlett Scales Antiques. AND, best of all, you will get a coupon for 15% off your entire purchase there)!

We will also have some refreshments in case you decide to hang out for a while!

You can still sign up for the class (see past post below, from 10:00 - 12:00). I will also offer the extra kits on Monday for those that have asked. Please keep watch here on Sunday/Monday morning for exact times I will post them as I only have a handful.

The Mary Englebreit Bird Kit is coming Monday too- stay tuned here.

I will also post then about any other items I may be posting from the Open House. I will also do a giveaway or two so everyone can join in the fun.

Hope to see you there!

For your viewing pleasure. . .

Bits and pieces just waiting to be re- purposed into necklace pendants and mix-media projects (I really need to stop collecting and start making)!!! The paste flower baskets above are my favorites- the rhinestones are so subtle! And I love the fact that there are two and I can make one to keep and one to sell!

Old clock faces and pocket watches (my major weaknesses)!! These will all be for sale at the open house. Whats left will make it over to my booth. . . (and I promise to post a few goodies on the site when I have the time)!
