Quoth the raven, “Nevermore.”

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary

Over many a quaint and curious pile of forgotten findings,
While I ogled and quoth “Mama Mia,” suddenly there came an idea

I thought of artists of board, paper and bindings,

of fabrics, fibers, rusty knobs, and wire windings
`’Tis my calling,’ I muttered, `to provide these with a panacea –

For creations of varied kindings.’

READERS, TAKE NOTE: We are offering these kits at a discount, pre-order only, to the readers of our blog. If you reserve your kit BEFORE October 1 by e-mailing us at gauchealchemy at cox dot net, we will knock $5 off the price of each kit. These kits are limited edition – only 10 of each will be offered! (For those of you hoping to score one as a our guest designer, you should have a couple of days to take advantage of this offer after we announce our GD.)

Nevermore Main Kit

Retail: $39.95 (pre-order $34.95)

This is only a sneak peak – remember there will also be our signature vintage ephemera and a custom collage sheet included.

Hmmm… let’s see… a 12×12 sheet of transparency frames, 2 sheets of double-sided Cosmo Cricket Nevermore paper, 2 sheets of skull/raven paper, 1 sheet of striped paper with subtle handwriting detail, a sheet of Doodlebug ironwork patterned paper, a sheet of Basic Gray Eva Dauphin paper, Daisy D’s green brocade-patterned paper (with beautiful blue and orange flecks!), a sheet of gorgeous blue-gray paper with flocked scroll work at the top and bottom edges, a black chipboard mini-book with it’s own custom case ready for altering, sparkley glitter alphas from Teresa Collins/Junkitz, and K&Co tags (FORTY of them!).

Now don’t tell me that’s not sweet. Just don’t even try it.

Nevermore Add-on Kit (perfect for mixed-media artists and scrapbookers/cardmakers who love embellishments!)

Retail $29.95 (pre-order $24.95)

Keep in mind this is a sneak peak. You will also receive some shabby vintage hardware and, of course, our signature paper ephemera.

2 swatches of yummy fabric, Heidi Swapp ghost clock faces (6 of them!), a 10-inch length of chain, lace, fleece fibers, chunky/fuzzy burnt orange ribbon, punchinella in rich brown and orange colors (non-standard sizes), Heidi Swapp chandelier crystals in kiwi, orange and gray waxed thread spools (the gray isn’t shown here), Tim Holtz sprocket gears, and 7 gypsies gaffer tape.

Does that make you drool?

Don’t lie.
