Today is the launch of our first Kit the stuff in it is very cute. If you love Halloween it's a must. Here's a bit about it.
The concept of Sweet Treats is a monthly limited edition embellishment kit club. Unlike most of the scrapbooking “kit” clubs our intention is to be just embellishments, and NOT your standard scrapbook fare. We will search for the unusual, the vintage or collectible; sometimes they will be reproductions, but always the unusual that will set your projects and pages apart. Occasionally things may not be completely acid free because of age, so think about what project you may be using something on and act accordingly. Some months there will be a theme and this first one is heavy on the Halloween just because we love Halloween, but November’s kit will be a fall color palette.
Each month you can sign up in advance and be guaranteed a kit, or you can wait until the release date and make your decision. But these are very limited quantities. For October there are only 15 kits and 8 have been spoken for. When they are gone, they’re gone. The cost this month is $19.95, but this will probably vary depending on what treasures we find.
So welcome to Sweet Treats. This month’s kit includes:
Vintage (1950’s) Halloween Treat Bag
Black buttons, both vintage and newer
1 yard of black grosgrain ribbon from the 1920’s
1 yard of vintage orange ribbon tinsel probably 1940-50
1 yard of Vintage Halloween Crepe Paper Festoon
3 New Tarot style cards with a wonder witch graphic
Reproduction Vintage Poison Labels
New black, orange, purple and green glass beads
Vintage dictionary pages from the late teens or early 20’s. Spooky words on every page.
2 new Sterling Silver charms
New flowers stamped with spider webs
Reproduction Halloween images
Vintage and reproduction German and Dresden Scrap
So if you have already ordered, your First Edition of Sweet Treats can be picked up Wednesday, October 1st at 10:30am. If you want to take a look first you can see them then. But remember when they're gone, they're gone!!
Don't forget about our auction, lots going on right now. No rest for the wicked I guess.
