you asked...we listened...

I'm THRILLED to introduce...

studio 490 KITS FOR ART!

we've had so many requests for kits...

store owners want them for in store classes
& for their customers to take home too...

groups of friends have asked for them for "girlfriend get togethers" so that each person can work on the same project...

people who have not tried ART PARTS asked for a trial package...
everything needed to complete a project...

we've had lots of requests for a kit that can be completed @ home...(in your jammies!) at your leisure...

we've had requests, so that several can be made for gift giving...

you asked...we listened...

each "kit for art" will contain all the art parts & Clearly for Art needed to complete the project.
also included in the kit are complete instructions, a supply list & some step out photos...

you'll just need to add the inking, stamping & your own embellishments...

you can follow the instructions exactly, or customize it with your choice of colors and stamps...

the first kit is the cover project from book #5...
since we've had a MILLION requests for that one!

here's the kit insert...



kit #2 will be released November-ISH and will be a project that is not in any book...

I have an idea brewing...
it will make a great gift...
with the holidays not too far away...
it's not too early to start thinking & creating...

the kits for art will only be sold thru stores...
I won't be selling them...

the kits are all made, they're sitting in Cleveland
& are READY to ship...
yippee! NO WAIT...I LOVE that!
you KNOW I have zero patience!
sad but true...

I'm anxious to hear your thoughts...

also...Stamptember continues over @ Simon Says...
the interview I did is posted today...


and don't forget...
the SALE continues thru today and includes...

don't miss out!

I'll be back on Monday morning with a
HUGE announcement...

this is THE NEWS that made me too excited to sleep...
YES...it's really THAT GOOD!!!

I can't wait to share with you...

have a great day &

make art!
wendy
ps ...GO BEARS!

Great idea! Hope my LSS carries them! Will they be available online too? It's been difficult to find the stamps to go with the parts, so this will make it loads easier! Fabtastic!!
