December 2022 - The Gossamer Collection completes our year!

Tricia Morris Tricia Morris

The Gossamer kits are all boxed up and ready to be labeled and shipped from our Wisconsin warehouse. Our team couldn't be more excited to get this beauty into your hands. Due to a high volume of orders, it may take us two full days to get your box onto a truck. Thanks in advance for your patience . . . your kit will fly in before you know it!

View our "spoiler" box opening on Facebook, or if you prefer, watch on YouTube.

There is no possible way to convey the beauty of this collection on a one-dimensional screen. I can only suggest you find a way to get your hands on this paper for yourself. We located two hard-to-find shades of Plum, and a stunning cover weight Black Metallic. Load up on individual sheets if you're a fan!

A Note from Tricia

It's gift giving season, and also that rushed time of year. Maximize your crafty minutes with this adorable special release project, the "Pint Size Pocket Portfolio." It's perfect for your purse! The 2.75x3.75" folio has eight fully-loaded pockets ready for memories and photos. The project kit includes printable instructions, a workshop video, portfolio paper, printed cutaparts, nesting paper, folding board for the button, and the elastic closure.

After two weeks of camp in Wisconsin's north woods, our team is ready to enjoy the holidays with family, friends, and each other! We celebrated Friendsgiving last week Tuesday and will be on a weekly rotation of potlucks during staff meetings. Aside from planning 2023's line-up of monthly kits, we're also preparing for our next scheduled expo: the Great Lakes Mega Meet in Novi, MI. Mark your calendar for May 11-13, 2023.

What's Ahead?

January will bring a lively, cheerful color palette and theme -- Mariachi! Celebrate the new year with a fun, yet completely neutral page kit prime for any occasion. We've also developed another set of festive (yet easy) structures for the card kit and a gorgeous sheet of stamps. Stay tuned to your CS emails for reminders of our next spoiler date tentatively scheduled for December 28.

Fonts and Inks

This month's font may seem a little familiar to you. It's a single font with a script and serif style called Summer Lemonade. If you happen to own the Fly A Kite stamps (May 2020), all of the images and sentiments are perfectly interchangeable! For matching inks, turn to the following CS® pads: Ash, Yellow, Amethyst, White Pigement, India Black. (Our discontinued Orchid color matched perfectly, too!)

Gossamer Page Kit

Even thought it's still difficult to fully appreciate the beauty of this kit before it's in your hands, here's an attempt with a video preview:


The kit goodies have been very popular since our "unboxing" video. If you're wanting to stock up on the frosted tags, silk flowers, ribbon, or charms, don't hesitate! I'll show you how to incorporate all of the goodies into your finished pages during the workshop video. Tune in for all kinds of tips!

If you haven't already, treat yourself to the best gift ever . . . a page kit membership! You'll start saving on kits and other orders, plus you'll get our bonus page formula each month to help you use your paper stash. Don't hesitate to give us a ring at 888-634-9100 if you need a little encouragement. ;)

Gossamer Card Kit

Check out the papers, cutaparts, goodies, ribbons and card sets in the Gossamer Card Kit!

We'll be making a very clever card with a double angle fold on the front, and I'll share the super-cool technique I discovered for making the nesting panels nest correctly. (Trust me. It's a thing.) Don't miss the workshop video. I'll spill the beans during the paper trimming section and "Set B" assembly.

Join our fast-growing card kit membership, and you'll ultimately improve your card making skills and grow your completed card stash!

It's not included in the page or card kit, but if you're fond of stenciling, add this beauty to your next shipment from Club Scrap: the Gossamer Dragonfly Masking Stencil. Check your stash if you were around in 2013. You may already own it.

Gossamer Stamps

The Gossamer stamps have an excellent combination of images and sentiments. The two little "glow" images add a bright element to the lanterns and fireflies on the sheet. Spark your creativity by checking back on the blog where Julie showcases her card creations!

The fun with Gossamer is just getting started. We can't wait to see what you create with your kits. Don't forget to join us on our private Club Scrap Chat group on Facebook to share what you've been up to!
