It's a MAD Pink Tea Party!!!

I could get all dainty and Victorian on you telling you that you're in for a delightful afternoon of cucumber finger sandwiches on white bread with the crust cut off, a spot of tea under a shady tree and nice game of croquet. Isn't that what proper ladies do at tea parties? Maybe. . . but not today!



It's a party! Let down your hair. Have a glass of champagne before noon *hiccup* Invite someone dangerous to lunch. Throw caution to the wind and see what life throws back. To help you celebrate the 2nd Annual Mad Tea Party hosted by A Fanciful Twist and Beverly's Pink Saturday I am giving away 1 free invite to the {Paper Doll • ology} tutorial. Just leave a comment here and you will be automatically entered to win. For details about the tutorial, please view the video above.


Now for the party favors! The first 20 students to purchase {Paper Doll •ology} by visiting The Artful Paper Doll will receive $15 off the regular $65 price. This means that the first 20 people to sign up will receive the complete tutorial for only $50.


Door prize and giveaway number 2, is a kit complete with instructions and everything needed (except adhesive and glitter glue) to assemble a fairy paper doll as seen in my work. If you commented on and answered the question in my last Pink Saturday post you were automatically entered to win the drawing to be held on Monday, June 29th.

Happy Mad Pink Tea Party Saturday. Wheew! I dare ya to say that 3 times fast!

xoxo

Hi Sharon,

I was getting a chuckle out of your comments tonight. Thank you so much. I need them tonight while waiting for the video to upload. I about need toothpicks to keep my eyes open because I've been up for about 21 hours now.

The discount for the tutorial is for the first 20 who purchase which is on a first come, first serve basis. You can purchase on www.papercatdesigns.ning.com. Feel free to contact me at kreynolds@papercatdesigns.com if you have questions.

Cheers and hugs! =D

Hi Kitty!.. It was funny how I just commented on another site how I would like to be learning something new, but never seem to follow through, for one reason or another. I want to, but I guess I just keep saying "one of these days". So this may be that pleasant nudge, putting it nicely, that I need! I remember making my own little paper dolls when I was a young girl, and I KNOW I would enjoy this now, so I'll cross my fingers! Love the "ooh la la" corset you made too! Happy Pink Saturday, and hope you have a wonderful week!

Marsha said...

Oooh, la, la, LOVE the corset!!! Happy PiNk SaTuRdAy! :) Marsha

Bill C. said...

My wife would kill me if I spent $65.00 on a paper doll class, but I think it would be incredibly fun! I know. I'm a weird, crazy guy. But weird and crazy is synonymous for a lot of fun! :O) Anywho, I'm putting in my entry for a chance to take it free. I'm not a cheapskate. Honest. Life is just too expensive!

Happy Pink Saturday!
Bill

Lorraine @ creativedaily said...

Hi Kitty - is your tutorial a video class or pdf's?

Ann said...

love your artdolls. and what a wonderful chance to take this class that i can't afford!! thanks for the chance!!

Elaine A said...

Hi Kellie -

What a fantastic idea. Very interested, will the presentation be like the La Belle Fleur Diaris set up? I know I've been on hold a bit with things, but I love that I can at least go back at my leisure and look at the information you provide for us. In other words, work at a pace that will accommodate my schedule. Headed over to the Artful Paperdoll Ning site now.
Happy Pink Saturday!

Love and kisses - Elaine Allen

The Artful Paper Doll said...

fairykin said...

Your paperdoll with the little box in the center of it's heart and belly intrigues me. It is like the soul of the paperdoll and what changes you could make from doll to doll.
I would love to win your cd for I have never won a cd before and would love to learn all of your beautiful techniques.
