Gauche Alchemy Goes Bare Nekkid

Hi everyone! Maggi here to reveal our new kits for November! *applause applause applause* Not only do we have a new kit for you, not only do we have a new mini kit for you but we also have some brand new punchinella that’s going to knock your freakin’ socks off! (or your stilletos, whatever type of sock or shoes you’re wearing at the moment…)

First up, our fun new kitschy WOOD GRAIN punchinella!

This super awesome punchinella comes in 5mm dark brown AND

6 mm light brown! I’m telling you, pictures just don’t do it justice, you HAVE to get this punchinella. Partly because it’s super happy funky cool and partly because this was a major find so once it’s gone, it’s probably going to be gone for good! Get it in the Gauche Alchemy store: Dark Brown 5mm Woodgrain Punchinella and Light Brown 6mm Woodgrain Punchinella.

Now for our new kit. Sometimes your projects scream for bright colors, tons of layers and millions of baubles and doodads glued to them. And sometimes it’s better to keep those projects clean, simple and buck freakin’ naked, artistically speaking of course. And what better way to get your project running around in the buff than with our new Bare Nekkid Paper Craft Kit!

Our Bare Nekkid kit includes gorgeous neutrals and simple designs, everything you need to strip that project down to the bare necessities…of awesome!
