Fairie Dust – Round Storage Box and Album
By Alexandra Morein
“When I saw the designs of the Fairie Dust collection, it was love at first sight. The patterns, graphics, and colors were so special. I wanted to create an equally special project with this collection.
So here is my round storage box, created from scratch out of medium weight chipboard, with a matching circular shape album inside.
The box is 9” in diameter and 4.5” in height. It has 2 compartments, one of which holds the album. The other one can be used for storing more pictures, cards, or other knick-knacks.
The album has a fabric cover, and I did my best to match its color to the tones of the paper.” ~Alexandra

Announcing Club G45
Last Thursday in our newsletter we announced our first ever kit club for 2018, Club G45! This took off faster and with more enthusiasm than we had ever dreamed of. All of Volume 1 kits sold out in less than three hours. As thrilled as we were with the popularity, we wish we could have been more prepared to meet the needs of our G45ers. We are adding as many additional kits as possible for Volume 2, and will continue to increase availability with future volumes in hopes that we can meet the demand.
Fortunately, we are still able to offer the project sheet and YouTube video tutorials to everyone. You can swap out the sold out Fairie Dust 8×8's for the 12×12 collection pack and still create a stunning project, or try using another one of our paper collections. Below you will find all the info for our new program including a FAQ section below.
