    Two Tiny Projects Plus New Halloween Papers

    Filed under Art Projects, Back in Stock, Giveaways, Halloween, Miniatures, Newsletters, Sale, Shannon Cooper

    Oooh! That talented Design Team Member Shannon Cooper has made TWO tiny wonders for us today! Before we ooo and ahhh, here’s a reminder about the collage sheet sale and FREE kit, both ending tomorrow!

    Continuing from Thursday and ENDS MONDAY night, July 24th:
    NEW Mini Cigar Boxes FREE Collage Sheet!

    In honor of Laura Carson’s fab new addition to her Steamtown House (that includes some tiny cigar boxes amongst the many items in the study), I designed a new Mini Cigar Boxes Collage Sheet (with cigar boxes to fold together in 2 sizes plus a ton of options for tiny labels).

    Free for ALL orders — through Monday night, July 24th! Note: all-digital orders will receive the collage sheet as a pdf file!

    You do not need to do anything to receive the new collage sheet. In fact, IF you add it to your order, I’ll assume you’re buying a second copy.
     

    Also continuing from Thursday:
    EVERYTHING in the Steampunk Collage Sheets section is on sale for 50% off!

    The sale ends TOMORROW night, July 24th!

    Note the sale also includes THREE new Collage Sheets by Design Team Member Laura Carson announced on Thursday (the new Steampunk Explorer Collage Sheet is shown at right)!

    Over 30 to choose from! See them all
     

     
    Aw… so darling! Shannon Cooper made a vintage cupboard (with paint appropriately cracked and with the “chicken wire” a little torn) using the Matchbox Cabinet and the new colors of mni resin jars (and a big bunch of other bottles and labels)!

    (Psst! Scroll down just a little to the first wide photo to see the bottles on the inside shelves; there’s also a photo of the full cabinet with the door open down in the Giveaway section.)

    My cabinet decided it wanted to be old, well-used, and suitable for maybe an aging farmhouse. It was glued together, gessoed, then painted with beige paint. Finally, it was covered with white glue and a coating of white acrylic paint, creating the aged effect. The center of the door was cut out and “chicken wire” was added.

    Inside the cupboard is every sort of pantry item you could think of. Even a condiment bottle and cocoa container! Having a few different collage sheets of labels made it really easy to fill the shelves. In about an hour, I had a handful of items after gluing on labels and occasionally painting a lid. There are two jars, one with peach halves and one with pickles, that were made from polymer clay, an even tinier jar, resin, and a scrap of fabric. There was still room to cram in a spice rack (thanks, Leslie!) and a few baby food jars worked perfectly as the spice containers. I love those jars. The lid comes off and you can fill it with (a tiny amount of) whatever you wish! I built a little rack from balsa wood and made concave sections to hold the jars at an angle by wrapping sandpaper around a thin dowel and sanding the wood. So simple.

    The chicken wire is actually a piece of tulle netting that was colored with a silver Sharpie. The holes in the chicken wire were accidentally made with a heat gun, but I liked the look and left it.

    That Shannon is so inventive! Tulle as chicken wire is perfect, and making a tiny spice rack for “spice jars” from the (incredibly tiny) baby food jars!

    Here’s a link to Shannon’s supply list for Aunt Tess’s Cupboard, and stop by her blog to read more and see more photos.

    Wait! There’s more! Yes, Shannon was on a roll and created the tiniest wishing well you will ever see! (See the second wide photo below for some close-ups.) I don’t know how she managed to get a wishing well, trees, tiny flowers and mossy rocks into a new Mini Cigar Box – Matchbox that’s only 2-1/4″ tall! (That small photo at left is me holding one of these cigar boxes.) More info about it is also on Shannon’s blog post, and here’s a supply list just for the Tiny Wishing Well.


     


     

     

    Hooray for the Vintage Kitchen Cupboard Giveaway!

    Here’s a few highlights from Shannon’s supply list. (Yes, all 21 items are included in today’s Giveaway! Note: If an item is listed twice — if it’s in the kit and also listed separately, for example — then you’ll just be getting one of those items.) Starting with some of the tiny bottles in the top shelf:
    - Baby Food Jars
    - Orange Marmalade Mini Resin JarNew
    - White Resin Cocoa Container

    Then moving to the bottom shelf:
    - Amber Resin Potions Bottle
    - White Oatmeal Box
    - White Resin Condiment Bottle
    - Vintage Pantry Labels Half Sheet (some of the varied labels!)
    - Oh, and I almost forgot: That tiny red checked print as the shelf paper: Paper Dolls 6×6 Paper Pad

    To enter the Vintage Kitchen Cupboard Giveaway drawing all you have to do is leave a comment BELOW on this blog post TODAY or TOMORROW (the deadline is 11:59 pm PST, Monday, July 24, 2017)!

    AND tell me: Requests for tutorial(s) — or at least tips — from Shannon? Personally: I’m interested in how she made that tiny white paper bag (with the rolled-up top… bottom shelf in the cupboard) AND the tiny foliage and rocks at the base of the wishing well. But there are lots of options; just a few ideas: how she made the wishing well itself (and/or the tiny shingled roof), trees around the wishing well, spice rack (top of top shelf of cupboard), tiny peaches inside the jar with the red gingham fabric on top…. I’m sure there’s more.

    Don’t forget to leave your (hello! correct) email address, too, so I can contact the winner; your email address does not need to be made public. Note: I’m offering free shipping, too, but only within the USA. International shipping will still apply.

    Please be patient! Spammers try to post crap here a lot so comments are moderated. So if you don’t see your post in the comments section, be patient and check back in a few hours before re-posting it, please!

    After midnight, I’ll randomly pick the winner (via Random.org). So check your mailbox on Thursday morning to see who won and for the next Giveaway and Newsletter!

    Wow! It’s an action-packed newsletter so I’m plunging in!

    First is this fun & witty The Wyrd Sisters School of Beauty by Design Team Member Lora Mahaffey. (The second project today is part two of the industrious Steamtown House by Laura Carson, and photos and more info is at the end of this post, down in the Giveaway zone!) Now back to Lora’s fun project:

    Welcome to the WYRD SISTERS SCHOOL OF BEAUTY!

    Yes, indeed, and we are here to help you achieve your beauty goals. All you have to do is pick up the phone and call 1-800-555-WART and you’ll be on your way to a beautiful new you!

    Wow! I think Lora may have had a bit too much caffeine (?). But I love the project! Kind of slyly sliding into Halloween art (in an unexpected palette of green and pink). I love the use of the 3″ x 4″ Mini Cigar Box as the box to house the “cosmetics”, rotated and using the lid like a book cover. And that container of honey cream (with a pearl on top) is actually a paint can.

    Curious about some item (mainly bottles & tiny boxes) you see in Lora’s creation? Check out her supply list! And read more about The Wyrd Sisters School of Beauty on Lora’s blog post!

     

    NEW Mini Cigar Boxes

    Hooray for the Victorian Study Giveaway!

    But first! Let’s talk (a little bit) about the Steampunk Explorer’s Study that Laura Carson made in the bottom floor of her Steamtown House (here’s a link to the last post from this series, with info on the house this study is built in). Remember the cello from a few week’s ago? I can see a bit of it behind (and to the left of) the chair in the photo at right.

    To start, I’ll quote some of Laura’s intro from her blog post:

    The wait is over, the identity of the new tenant of the house on Irongate Street is none other than H.G. Wells.

    The Steamtown Weekly Journal has all the details with Amelia Goodbody snagging the exclusive interview. She covers topics like “Her Exciting Life in the Clouds”, “Thrilling Adventures Traveling Around the World” and “What’s Next For This Intrepid Explorer”.

    I love the brown chesterfield tufted chair with its velvet foot stool. Next to the chair are her favorite cigars (Lucky Fellow) and a decanter with her favorite brandy.

    (Yes, that was “her exciting life…” and “her favorite cigars…”)

    And note: Laura’s blog post has a lot more info and tips on building items (and more photos!) and includes a video tutorial.

    OK… back to the Giveaway! I picked out a bunch of cool items that Laura used in her project (click here to see photos of her entire supply list, but only the ones listed below are in the Giveaway). Note: I constrained myself to just the chair scene shown in the larger photo above, and the cool chandelier hanging above the chair (close-up at left), but the whole room is shown in Laura’s blog post.

    - Steampunk Explorer Collage SheetNew
    - Chesterfield Chair
    - Victorian Table Kit – Black
    - Brandy Decanter Kit
    - Mini Wine Glasses – Set of 2
    - Oval Metal Tea Tray
    And Chandelier parts:
    - Raw Brass Box Feet – Cones
    - Amber Glass Globes – Set of 4
    Plus the Mini Cigar Boxes Half Sheet (as promised!)

    To enter the Victorian Study Giveaway drawing all you have to do is leave a comment BELOW on this blog post TODAY OR TOMORROW (the deadline is 11:59 pm PST, FRIDAY, July 21, 2017)!

    And tell me: How will you use the chair & table and all these goodies? Bonus: What’s your favorite tip in Laura tutorial video?

    Don’t forget to leave your (hello! correct) email address, too, so I can contact the winner; your email address does not need to be made public. Note: I’m offering free shipping, too, but only within the USA. International shipping will still apply.

    Please be patient! Spammers try to post crap here a lot so comments are moderated. So if you don’t see your post in the comments section, be patient and check back in a few hours before re-posting it, please!

    Fairies & Stars

    Filed under Collage Sheets, Giveaways, Kristin Batsel, Matchbox Cabinet Kit, Nichola Battilana, Sale

    Let’s take a brief break from all the potions & apothecary cabinets & impending Halloween-ness for… fairies! Before we look at TWO beautiful new projects and some flully clouds, here’s a reminder about the miniatures sale and FREE kit, both ending tomorrow!

    Miniature Paint & Stamps FREE Gift Kit!

PLUS a custom mini collage sheet with a few of the labels from the new Tiny Craft Room Labels Collage Sheet (sized to make rubber stamps with the wood strips — and note: the wood is really easy to cut to size) plus a few labels that will fit the bottle (in a couple styles). You can get the A Witch’s Grimoire or Secret Spell Book Labels Collage Sheets for more witchy labels to fit the same bottles (and both used by Teri).

    I know! Isn’t that the cutest thing you’ve ever seen?! (And I bet you thought I was talking about Nichola when I said fairies… but just wait, she’s got an adorable project today, too!)

    Design Team Member Kristin Batsel made this charming Lucky Stars project with the Matchbox Cabinet that’s also included in this month’s kit.

    Did you ever wish upon a star, or thank your lucky stars? Well, then you’re going to want to meet this little pixie, who sits up near the moon and collects those stars, making them available to those of us who need them. I made this tiny shadowbox using a Matchbox Cabinet from Alpha Stamps. Here’s the little pixie, perched on a shelf, removing stars from the sky. He’ll fill that bottle and store it below with previously harvested stars.

    I love everything about this star-filled little shadowbox, from the teeny 3mm Gold & Silver Stars at the top to the Bronze Pentagram Charm hanging from the bottom!

    Here’s a link to Kristin’s supply list, and stop by her blog to read more about this pixie and see more photos (and some tips about using sticky foam to elevate one floor of the cabinet).

    What? There’s more? Yes, Design Team Member Nichola Battilana has made a miniature version of a Fairy Apothecary she showed off earlier this week, using a new Mini Cigar Box – 3×4… you’ll want to check out the Giveaway below for a photo and a chance to win EVERYTHING in her supply list! But first, look at those fluffy clouds and starry skies! I picked out some scrapbook papers perfect for the background of a pixie project.
     

     
    Hooray for the Fairy Apothecary Giveaway!

    Oooo! Not only a fabulous (and fabulously busy) little shadowbox (note: that clever Nichola left the lid off the new cigar box, stood it on end and used it as a shadowbox), and a new collage sheet, made by Nichola, with all the sweet labels for the bottles, but… Nichola also made a video tutorial! She explains “recreating the look of authentic old glass. It’s not over the top grungy… but it absolutely replicates the appearance fairly accurately.”

    But before you run off and get engrossed in that video, here’s a few highlights from Nichola’s supply list (and. yes, all 16 items are included in today’s Giveaway!) Starting with some of the tiny bottles down on the bottom row:
    - Amber Resin Potions Bottle, a smaller version of same, and a Pickle Jar with Lid
    - Corked Vials (the tall bottles)
    - English Fairy Garden Collage Sheet (the butterflies!)

    To enter the Fairy Apothecary Giveaway drawing all you have to do is leave a comment BELOW on this blog post TODAY or TOMORROW (the deadline is 11:59 pm PST, Monday, July 17, 2017)!

    AND tell me: What will you do with all of those bottles? Will you use them in one project? Or do you have multiple ideas for using them?

    Don’t forget to leave your (hello! correct) email address, too, so I can contact the winner; your email address does not need to be made public. Note: I’m offering free shipping, too, but only within the USA. International shipping will still apply.

    A Hutch for All Seasons, Collage Sheet Sale & New Free Gift!

    Filed under Art Projects, Collage Sheets, Giveaways, Miniatures, Newsletters, Rhonda Secrist Thomas, Sale, Teri Calia

    A new sale! EVERYTHING in the Dollhouse Miniatures Collage Sheets section is on sale for 50% off!

    The sale ends Monday night, July 17th!

    That includes the Little Potions Collage Sheet shown at left.

    And the sale also includes TWO new Collage Sheets announced today (photos & info below)! Plus a few that Teri Calia used in her fab artwork shown below!

    Over 80 to choose from! See them all


    Yay! Another chance to see 2 completely different ideas using the same new item! My fave!

    First is the tiny reproduction of Design Team Member Rhonda Secrist Thomas’s real life craft studio (or a piece of it) using the new Storage Hutch and the 4 Inch Wide Chest of Drawers – 2 Drawers. (The second project today is by Teri Calia, and photos and more info is at the end of this post, down in the Giveaway zone!) Now back to Rhonda’s fun project:

    Welcome to my miniature art studio. Not only does my beloved hutch have multiple shelves, I also have two large drawers and a large desk top to work on. It’s my favorite spot to play.

    One can never have too many ink pads or paint brushes.

    True to life, my miniature desk top is covered in paint, just like my real desk top.

    Do you like my mini paint tubes? (Note: see the wide photo below for a close-up.) You will not believe how simple they are to make. I was inspired by this tutorial on Miniature Paints that I found on Pinterest. That place is addicting!

    In the tutorial, she used some type of thin metal. I couldn’t find mine so I used this adhesive silver tape I had instead. I trimmed a tad of the back paper off so I could use it to adhere my paint tube together.

    To make each tube an individual color, I used washi tape in different colors and darker designs. Then put some white clay in the top and added color to make them look like paint was coming out.

    Nice job, Rhonda! I love all the details. Rhonda used a collage sheet I designed specifically for her project: Tiny Craft Room Labels Collage Sheet (with all sizes of labesl: from the ridiculously tiny 4mm tall labels for the baby food jars to rubber stamp labels sized for the 1/4″ and 3/8″ strips of basswood (and lots of labels sized in between). Labels for rubber stamp ink pads, acrylic paint, gesso, and rubber stamp labels from our very own rubber stamps.

    And check below ’cause the new FREE Gift Kit includes a mini set of wood strips and labels from this collage sheet to make some tiny stamps of your own.

    Curious about some item you see in Rhonda’s creation? Check out her supply list!


     

     
    Miniature Paint & Stamps
    FREE Gift Kit!

    Since the artwork today by Teri and Rhonda both use the Even Tinier Bottles (and Rhonda also made adorable miniature wood-mounted rubber stamps using a 3/8″ wide Basswood Strip) I’m including 1 of the bottles and a little sampler cut (3″) of each of the 3 widths of basswood strips! PLUS a custom mini collage sheet with a few of the labels from the new Tiny Craft Room Labels Collage Sheet (sized to make rubber stamps with the wood strips — and note: the wood is really easy to cut to size) plus a few labels that will fit the bottle (in a couple styles). You can get the A Witch’s Grimoire or Secret Spell Book Labels Collage Sheets for more witchy labels to fit the same bottles (and both used by Teri). I also added some from the Tiny Magic Books & Potion Labels Collage Sheet.

    Free for ALL orders — through Monday night, July 17th!



    Hooray for the Wise Woman’s Giveaway!

    But first! Let’s talk about the beautiful Wise Woman’s Apothecary Cabinet that Teri Calia made (with the same hutch and chest of drawers as Rhonda’s project). Note: there’s a wide photo below with more images. To start, I’ll quote some of Teri’s intro from her blog post:

    The Oxford Dictionary defines “wise woman” as a woman considered to be knowledgeable in matters such as herbal healing, magic charms, or other traditional lore. That is the kind of woman I envision using this apothecary cabinet.

    She would keep all of her herbs and other ingredients in well labeled, tightly covered, glass jars so nothing would be misplaced or misused.

    She would have lots of books, scrolls, and papers to fill up those two large drawers, and yes, sometimes, to leave stacked on the worktop. Her mortar and pestle would be well used and perhaps a bit dented.

    And note: Teri has included a tutorial on how she made the open book (with a teal blue bookmark) on top of her work table, using pages and covers from her own Tiny Little Grimoires Collage Sheet.

    OK… back to the Giveaway! I picked out a bunch of cool items that Teri used in her project (click here to see photos of her entire supply list, but only the ones listed below are in the Giveaway).

    - 10mm Square Glass Bottle with Lid (see below… 3 of them are on the top shelf of the hutch)
    - 12mm Wooden Drawer Pull or Box Feet
    - Storage Hutch – NEW
    - 4 Inch Wide Chest of Drawers – 2 Drawers – NEW
    - A Witch’s Grimoire Collage Sheet (for all those tiny labels on the bottles)
    - Even Tinier Bottles (yes, a set of 6, and you may want more if you try to reproduce this artwork)
    - Mini Cigar Box Set (on top of the hutch… again, see below)
    - Miniature Brown Paper Boxes Collage Sheet – NEW (also on the top of the hutch)
    - Tiny Little Grimoires Collage Sheet (so you can follow along with the tutorial)
    - Tiny Resin Skull Mix (Teri used them as drawer pulls!)

    To enter the Wise Woman’s Giveaway drawing all you have to do is leave a comment BELOW on this blog post TODAY OR TOMORROW (the deadline is 11:59 pm PST, FRIDAY, July 14, 2017)!

    And tell me: What will you make? An apothecary cabinet? A mini version of a bookcase (or craft supply cabinet) in your house? Something else?

    Don’t forget to leave your (hello! correct) email address, too, so I can contact the winner; your email address does not need to be made public. Note: I’m offering free shipping, too, but only within the USA. International shipping will still apply.

    Please be patient! Spammers try to post crap here a lot so comments are moderated. So if you don’t see your post in the comments section, be patient and check back in a few hours before re-posting it, please!

    A 2-story room box, or is it a dollhouse?

    Filed under Digital Images, Giveaways, Laura Carson, Newsletters, Sale, Steampunk, Steamtown House, Tutorials

    Before we look at a beautiful new project by Laura Carson, here’s a reminder about the miniatures sale and FREE kit, both ending tomorrow!

    Continuing from Thursday and ENDS MONDAY night, July 10th:
    Iridescent Star Ice Mix FREE Gift Kit!

    - a Mini Inkwell Bottle,
    - turquoise blue baker’s twine (a custom item, not available on the site), and

    See them all


    Remember the post about Laura Carson’s Steampunk Cat? Well, we have a treat today, as the 2-story house that that cat lives in is ready to be seen!

    Wow! Isn’t it beautiful? I love how Laura has decorated the outside of the house (and we’ll see more posts — and video tutorials! — over the summer to find out how the rooms inside come together). Note: Laura has included the interior wall, floor and ceiling coverings in today’s post, too — preview pic is below.

    Laura started with the new 2-Story Room Box French Quarter (and roof… plus some extra windows that she added to the outside).

    The new room box is a chipboard kit to put together a beautiful 1:12 scale, 2-story room box (more like a dollhouse). The kit includes a balcony, door and decorative door frame, window frames for all 3 windows (each with an extra border for dimension) with each with 2 windows (with panes) that can be hinged to open. It’s pretty big: the finished size is approx. 11-3/4″ wide x 19″ tall. (Psst… I had a half scale version made, too!)

    Laura used embossed brick sheets over the raw chipboard walls, then added trims from her new Architectural Trims Digital Download Set to add more details (like the keystones above the windows; they really make the house feel vintage, IMHO).

    Her digital set was also used for the faux round windows on the sides of the roof (over the new Slate Roofing Paper).

    Here’s some text from Laura’s blog post. Don’t forget, she has made a video tutorial, AND she is giving away a free collage sheet with scenes to put behind the extra windows, and a stained glass window image for using behind the door!

    In Steamtown, on Irongate Street, is a beautiful house that has sat empty for too long. Rumor has it that a famous explorer has recently leased the house and will be moving in shortly. Gossip flies around town as the residents try to guess who will be the new tenant.

    It’s a diamond in the rough and how fun it will be to see just what the new tenant does with it, surely bringing their love of travel, exploration and adventure to the decor.

    I’ve been chomping at the bit for a two story house kit and it was fun to help design it. For this project I’ve used it as a house, but it would make a great two story shop. The overall design lends itself to multiple facade styles. If two rooms are not enough you can use multiple kits joined together to have as many rooms as you like.

    This project is just the start, in the coming weeks I’ll be decorating and furnishing the rooms and adding other elements to the exterior.

    Here’s a link to Laura’s supply list, many of which are shown below as they’re new this week!


     

     
    Hooray for the Half Scale 2-Story House Giveaway!

    Not exactly what Laura used, but it won’t take up a lot of space (if you have a small apartment). And with Laura’s trims set downsized to 50%, you can make a pretty close facsimile of Laura’s project (plus I’m including a couple pieces of half scale furniture to get you started on the inside). By the way, I just love that photo showing the 2 houses!

    Here’s what I’m including:
    - Half Scale 2-Story Room Boxnew!
    - Roof for Half Scale 2-Story Room Boxnew! (the half scale version is open on the back so you can decorate the inside like an attic — see below)
    - 1:24 Antique Brick Wall Sheet
    - Architectural Trims Set Downloadnew! (note: this is only available as a digital images set; if you cannot use digital images we’ll figure out a couple similar printed collage sheets)
    - Chipboard Scalloped Shingles – Half Scale
    - 1:24 Round Table & 2 Chairs
    - 1:24 China Cabinet

    To enter the Half Scale 2-Story House Giveaway drawing all you have to do is leave a comment BELOW on this blog post TODAY or TOMORROW (the deadline is 11:59 pm PST, Monday, July 10, 2017)!

    Oh! I love the beautiful sepia and turquoise palette (and the whole shrine!) that Design Team Member Nichola Battilana made with the Arched Shrine Shadowbox!

    From the story on Nichola’s blog post:

    Once upon a time a gentleman dove deep, deep, deep under the sea.

    Where he met his true love.

    Her frock covered all of her mermaiden parts so he did not know if she she had a swishy fishy tale beneath her skirts. And she refused to show him. She was a lady after all!

    They married under the sea horse arch with glittery shells and baubles…

    I’m going to jump in here and explain a few things Nichola used AND NOTE: everything in Nichola’s supply list is included in today’s Giveaway!

    - Orange Petals & Wood Planks Scrapbook Paper (you may not have guessed that the back side with the whitewashed planks is the paper on the inside of the shrine)
    - Mini Steampunk Seahorse – Set of 2 (they look so beautiful colored light turquoise and covered in crystal glitter!)
    - Seashells in Plastic Tin (also looking lovely and jewel-like with tons of glitter added… see the close-up on bottom right)

    And, of course, the Arched Shrine Shadowbox and Stairstep Shrine Base that are the structure for the shrine.

    NEW Matchbox Cabinet Kit

    What a great little kit! And a haul of tiny bottles & tins to get you started filling your Matchbox Cabinet (that’s also included in the kit)!

    The Matchbox Cabinet is a chipboard set to put together a miniature cabinet with one shelf. Deceptively simple but has lots of uses (like: leave off the cover/door and use it as a small bookcase (or a shrine), or use one of the door (or doorframe with window insert) options on the related collage sheets in place of the chipboard door). See artwork below showing 2 door options.

    AND the kit includes THREE collage sheets:
    - Matchbox Cabinet Doors Half Sheet
    - Vintage Pantry Labels Half Sheet
    - Matchbox Cabinet Windows Half Sheet (printed on clear transparency!)

    And all those bottles? There are so many things in the kit (13, actually!) that it’s easier to just show you all of them.

    Artwork! I love how this kit can be used in so many styles! The Pantry Is Full (see the first wide photo below) by Design Team Member Rhonda Secrist Thomas. More info (and more of that tutorial for making faux canned food — mini preview in the photo) in Rhonda’s blog post and see the Giveaway below for some of her supplies.

    Pocket Grimoire (see the second wide photo below) by Teri Calia, using two new collage sheets also designed for the Matchbox Cabinet! More info in the Teri’s blog post and see the Giveaway below for some of her supplies.

    More info and photos about the new kit are on the Matchbox Cabinet Kit page. And coordinating supplies are below and on the site.

    The Captured Mermaid, Shipping Sale & Spiffy New Free Gift!

    Filed under Art Projects, Giveaways, Lora Mahaffey, Mermaid Paper Doll Kit, Newsletters, Sale, Tutorials

    Note: as this is a holiday weekend here in the US: FREE shipping on orders over $50 (for orders shipping to USA) now through Tuesday night, July 4th!

    A new sale! EVERYTHING in the Decorative Metal section is on sale for 25% off!

    The sale ends TUESDAY night, July 4th!

    75 to choose from! Like the Tim Holtz Adornments – Metal Stars shown (and quite a few more Tim Holtz items, too).

    And the sale also includes all the gears, including 2 new rustic sets announced today!

    Some are being discontinued, so get ‘em while you can, and while on sale! View all
     


    I love, love, love the shrine that Design Team Member Lora Mahaffey made for her Mermaid Kit artwork!

    But before I quote from Lora’s (always witty) blog: the new Wrought Iron Gate for Arched Shrine Shadowbox! Designed to fit the Arched Shrine Shadowbox (but such a pretty piece, I’m sure you’ll find other projects for it, too). And it looks smashing painted black as part of the Victorian “cage” for The Captured Mermaid.

    From Lora’s blog post:

    She was found tangled in a fisherman’s net, her arm badly broken. That day there happened to be a journalist at the harbor photographing the boats when the fisherman came in with his odd catch. Before anyone could say ‘Fish and Chips’ she was whisked away to London, her arm repaired with the most advanced technology of the Victorian era, placed in a large, specially made tank and hauled to the British Museum where she was the talk of the nation as folks came in droves to see her.

    Intrigued now, aren’t you? But before you run off and read more about the mermaid’s plight, stay here a bit to see some new items (like the new rustic gears Lora used atop her shrine), and the items from Lora’s project you can win in the drawing!

    Without delay, here are the items from Lora’s supply list included in today’s Giveaway:
    - Mermaid Paper Doll Kit
    - Arched Shrine Shadowbox
    - Wrought Iron Gate for Arched Shrine Shadowbox
    - Stairstep Shrine Base
    - Mini Steampunk Seahorse – Set of 2
    - Spanish Crowns Collage Sheet
    - Seashells in Plastic Tin
    - Seashell Sequin Mix

    Here’s a link to Lora’s supply list (including photos of all those Giveaway items I just mentioned).

    Read more of Lora’s story for her mermaid, and see lots more photos (including her tutorial).


     

     
    Mermaid Accessories & Shiny Bits FREE Gift Kit!!

    Now through Saturday night, July 1st! For ALL orders: either a chipboard shell handbag or tiny fan set PLUS either a bag of mixed color/shape iridescent beads or blue sky (with gold) glitter in a tiny glass vial with cork. So 2 items for all orders! (One tiny chipboard set plus one shiny bead or glitter item.)

    Orders over $50 will get ALL FOUR options! These are similar to the popular chipboard parasol & etched shell mirror from a few weeks ago.



    Hooray for the Captured Mermaid Shrine Giveaway!

    Yep, I’ve already mentioned what’s is in the Giveaway (see the list of the items up by the photos of Lora’s artwork, or click here to see photos of her entire supply list).

    Plus, see the row of 4 items (below) that were just put on clearance sale (and are also included in the Giveaway)! Those big filigree pieces would be fun to use at the top of your shrine… as a base to layer items on, for a variation of what Lora made.

    To enter the Captured Mermaid Shrine Giveaway drawing all you have to do is leave a comment BELOW on this blog post TODAY OR TOMORROW (the deadline is 11:59 pm PST, FRIDAY, June 30, 2017)!

    And tell me: A Captured Mermaid? Another scene in your shrine? Something with gears?

    A Dia de los Muertos Cat Mermaid Shrine?

    Filed under Art Projects, Giveaways, Miniatures, Newsletters, Sale, Teri Calia

    Before we look at a really WOW project (with some new zingy colors), here’s a reminder about the miniatures sale and FREE kit, both ending tomorrow!

    Continuing from Thursday and ENDS MONDAY night:
    FREE Mini Clay Pot or Tiny Dog? Your choice or we’ll pick!

    I just couldn’t decide between these 2 new miniatures… each of which could be used on/near the new chaise or another 1:12 scale chair. Maybe you’re not a dog fan? Then pick a clay pot (maybe leave the pot bare in a potting shed? Or (oh my!) check out Teri Calia’s artwork below, ’cause those PURPLE pots are these clay pots, colored with the new Nuvo Embellishment Mousse – Royal Aubergine!

    And orders over $50.00 can pick TWO (your choice… 2 dogs? 2 pots? 1 of each?)

    Just leave your choice in the comments section when you check out. If you don’t leave a comment, we’ll pick one for you.

    Also continuing from Thursday:
    EVERYTHING in the 1:12 Scale Dollhouse Furniture section is on sale for 25% off!

    The sale ends MONDAY night, June 26th!

    Over 70 to choose from! Like the Fancy Chair 1:12 Scale shown.

    And the sale also includes the new Chaise Lounge used by Shannon Cooper in Thursday’s artwork!)

    Some are being discontinued, so get ‘em while you can, and while on sale! View all
     


    See what I mean about WOW!? Teri Calia has made a crazy, colorful Dia de los Muertos Cat Mermaid Shrine! And a new collage sheet with parts to make an articulated cat mermaid paper doll of your own!

    And before I turn this description over to Teri, her shrine is sitting on the new Stairstep Shrine Base! A base (with built-in feet) designed to use with the Arched Shrine Shadowbox, but is just a cool platform by itself! As you can see, it has lots of room for adding a little scene in front of the shrine.

    A dia de los muertos (day of the dead) cat mermaid shrine?? Well, why the heck not? I love cats, day of the dead shrines and mermaids are really apropos right now. So, I created a collage sheet with mermaid parts to fit the awesome Articulated Mermaid Paper Doll so you can make this…

    Isn’t she cute?? I love her, she has so much attitude! Anyway, you could just make a mermaid (or two) with the new collage sheet and be done with the whole thing… or you could make a whole day of the dead shrine to house her in!

    I made a shrine because I really do love day of the dead shrines and never need an excuse to make one.

    The shrine is composed of an Arched Shrine Shadowbox, a Balcony Balustrade – 12 Inch, and a brand new Stairstep Shrine Base. Plus a whole bunch of brightly painted doodads…

    I used the Tiny Scalloped Shingles or Scales Stencil – 5×5 Size to add some texture to the top of the shrine base…

    Of course I used Nuvo Embellishment Mousse – Aquamarine to push through the stencil because this stuff is the most amazing thing on the planet! Not only is it awesome to paint with and dimensional enough to hold its shape through a stencil, it is iridescent and comes in some luscious colors too!!! It’s now available in nine colors at Alpha Stamps. (To see the colors I used click on my supply list for this project.)

    Read more in Teri’s blog post! AND come back to enter today’s Giveaway, as it includes tons of items from Teri’s supply list! (Psst… check out those PURPLE clay pots below! And an offering of chocolate mice on the cat altar!)

    New Chaise Lounge, Miniatures Sale & Pick your own Free Gift!

    Filed under Back in Stock, Giveaways, Halloween, Miniatures, Newsletters, Sale, Shannon Cooper

    A new sale! EVERYTHING in the 1:12 Scale Dollhouse Furniture section is on sale for 25% off!

    The sale ends MONDAY night, June 26th!

    Over 70 to choose from! Like the Red Victorian Armchair shown.

    And the sale also includes the new Chaise Lounge used by Shannon Cooper in today’s artwork!)

    Some are being discontinued, so get ‘em while you can, and while on sale! View all
     


    How cute it that?! When I suggested this new 1:12 scale Chaise Lounge to Design Team Member Shannon Cooper, she knew immediately how she wanted to decorate it. I, on the other hand, did not immediately think “Halloween”… sure glad I have the best Design Team in the world!

    From Shannon’s blog post:

    The miniature Wrought Iron Table (psst! also part of the furniture sale!) looked nice along side the chaise, especially after it was given a furry edged table cover. The accessories like the Large Amber Onion Jar of roses, a pewter candlestick, a set of keys, and a few other things helped too.

    The chaise is a cinch to assemble and decorate as it comes, but it is equally simple to upholster it, making it soft and squishy like a chaise should be.

    The first thing you do is trace around the seat, back, and side pieces onto lightweight cardboard. I did this twice for two reasons. 1. In case I screwed up. 2. I wasn’t sure if I also wanted to lightly upholster additional pieces to add on the outside of the chaise, covering the entire thing in fabric. Can never be too prepared.

    Read more of Shannon’s step-by-step tutorial (and to see lots more photos).

    And here’s a link to Shannon’s supply list (with all those cool & creepy things on the table top).

    AND everything in that supply list is included in today’s Giveaway!


     

     
    Hooray for the Witchy Little Chaise Giveaway!

    Yep, I’ve already spilled the beans on what is in the Giveaway (see highlights of the items up by the photos of Shannon’s artwork, or click here to see photos of all of them).

    BUT… I haven’t told you yet what is the New FREE GIFT (free with ALL ORDERS through Monday, June 26th)!

    FREE Mini Clay Pot or Tiny Dog? Your choice or we’ll pick!

    I just couldn’t decide between these 2 new miniatures… each of which could be used on/near the new chaise or another 1:12 scale chair. Maybe you’re not a dog fan? Then pick a clay pot (maybe leave the pot bare in a potting shed? Or add some foliage for a garden scene).

    And orders over $50.00 can pick TWO (your choice… 2 dogs? 2 pots? 1 of each?)

    Just leave your choice in the comments section when you check out. If you don’t leave a comment, we’ll pick one for you.

    FREE with All Orders through Monday, June 26th! (And one of each choice is included in the Giveaway, too!)

    Note: I’m giving away single dogs and single pots… not a whole set of 6 pots as they’re normally packaged.
