    Fairy Godmother’s Wardrobe, plus Xmas Sale & Free Gift!

    Filed under Art Projects, Collage Sheets, Giveaways, Miniatures, Newsletters, Nichola Battilana, Sale

    Reminder: ALL Christmas Collage Sheets AND Angels and Saints Collage Sheets are on Sale at 50% Off! That’s over 140 options! There’s still time to download some digital images or collage sheets for making last-minute gifts!

    The sale is through Sunday night, December 24th (Christmas Eve!)

    Speaking of Christmas, I’ve just posted info on the “While the Cat’s Away…” After-Christmas Sale. Note: we are working this week but I cannot guarantee any orders will arrive before Christmas. Still, a little gift for yourself to arrive the week after Christmas would be something to look forward to…
     

    Fairy Godmother’s Wardrobe by Design Team Member Nichola Battilana

    Oooh! This is fab! I’ve been wondering what this new wooden cabinet would be turned into…

    I’ve been sitting on this project for a couple of weeks. I received an Unfinished Wooden Wardrobe and had a few ideas. I thought of a magical portal, storage for a saucy burlesque star, something pink and filly and Marie Antoinette. Why not all rolled up into one?! A fairy godmother wardrobe!

    I love the pink/glittery cabinet (and all the trinkets inside)! Note: Nichola is going to follow up with a second blog post later this week with a “how-to for some of the wee bits inside.”

    There are books about magic and kissing frogs and toads, a tea pot and postcard memories. Godmotherly magazines. Pumpkins appear throughout (I’ve given them a wash of orange to add more colour.)

    And Nichola created a new Fairy Godmother’s Cupboard Collage Sheet with all the paper items, book covers, magazines, postcards, photos, labels, and posters inside the cabinet!

    Read more in Nichola’s blog post and/or see everything from her supply list. And check out the Giveaway below, as you could win tons of her supplies!


     


     
    Bonus: have you been following that crazy-busy Nichola’s blog? I neglected to point out a delightful project using tons of 1:12 scale toys that she posted on December 1st: her Jollymaker’s Toy Store Window!

    I spy a:
    Jester Jack-in-the-Box Toy,
    Painted Rocking Horse,
    Tiny Resin Teddy Bear,
    Tiny Train Set,
    Xylophone Pull Toy,
    Mini Clown Jack-in-the-Box,
    and a bunch of wrapped packages in a red wagon!

    Plus the Classic Christmas Chimney Bricks Scrapbook Paper (that made quick work of creating vintage brickwork) and Half Scale Widows Walk Fencing around the top.

    Go check it out; it’s beautiful!
     

     
    Reminder: FREE Gift with all orders ends Tomorrow Night: Angels or Demons?

    I created 2 new collage sheets in honor of Thursday’s artwork:
    - Krampus Postcards Collage Sheet
    and
    - Victorian Angels Collage Sheet,
    either of which would provide even more images for creating a similar project as Bella’s or Rhonda’s. (And both are on sale as part of the Christmas collage sheet sale!)

    So back to this free gift: Angels or Demons? Your choice of the 2 new collage sheets. Just leave me a note on your order. If you don’t specify, I’ll pick one.

    ALL ORDERS through Monday, December 18 (2017) will receive one of the 2 new collage sheets FREE! And all-digital orders will receive their choice as a pdf file.
     

    Hooray for the Fairy Godmother’s Wardrobe Giveaway!

    Bonus: I’m including all 3 of the new shiny confetti mixes (they just seem like something a fairy godmother could use!) AND I’m including the new 1:12 Wooden Clothes Hangers and 1:12 Champagne Bottle (as they would make perfect substitutes for the hangers and wine bottle that Nichola used).

      I would definitely be making a blue/green/Pink/purple Fairy chest! I think I would make a portal in the back where the fairies go if they need to hide from the Muggles to avoid being seen!
      I have the whole set of G45’s Faerie Dust Collection and that would be my starting point for this project! TFS!
      Sending an email with my info right now! Thank you SO much!

    12. Nancy Says:

    13. Nancy O Says:

      A special cabinet for wands, crystals, bottles of elixirs, books (love Nichola’s books and magazines). I would create special shelving and hidden nooks and crannies in the interior of the cabinet.

    16. sheila AR Says:

      Nichola’s pinks have me dreaming of spring…yet there is always the lure of a Halloween or Curiosity cabinet where the oddfellows need to put their stuff. Both sides of the equation are strong with me!

      I love this wardrobe! Been planning on doing a closet room for Pryne Fisher of “Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries” and to of these will be perfect for one wall in there! I’ll have the doors open from opposite directions and decorate the wardrobes in Art Deco as her books (and the TV show) take place in 1929

    22. Kat Cashwell Says:

      This wardrobe is awesome! I would have to do a witches wardrobe!!! Thanks for a wonderful year of fantastic & amazing projects!!!

    23. Margaret D Says:

    24. Sandra Manring Says:

    30. Marilyn Ray Says:

      I’d make a wardrobe for Santa. I’m sure he has more than one suit. And he probably needs a special place to hide mrs Claus’ gifts

      Oh I adore this! So fun! I would make the a fairy God-mother wardrobe to go with my little fairy dolls!

    36. Kathleen S Cole Says:

      Well, let’s see…..of course, a Witch’s cabinet is always my “go to” project. But I’m also thinking of choosing a Fairy Tale and making a wardroom for them. What would Cinderella have in her wardrobe, assuming she’d be allowed one….or Peter Pan….or some of the evil fairies of folklore like the “evil stepmother”……so many many to choose from!

    37. Judy Goodwin Says:

      Fairies are wonderful. I love this fairy godmother closet.

    38. Laura Says:

      I love the fairy godmother’s wardrobe, but I think if I were to make one it would have a bit of a darker look. I generally lean more toward Halloween and goth type things so maybe a darker looking, but still friendly, fairy godmother’s collection of things.

    39. Nancy E Says:

      I just love the fairy godmother’s wardrobe. I would reproduce for a very special friend!

    40. Barb A Says:

      Love the wardrobe, so many possibilities…..fairy godmother, witch’s wardrobe, Santa or Mrs Santa’s wardrobe, a little girl’s wardrobe full of dress up things……the ideas are endless.

    41. Jennie Ingram Says:

      I think I’d make a Dark Fairy wardrobe. Something a bit more goth. ;-)

    42. Daphne Says:

      Adorable wardrobe that would be perfect for a little girl’s clothes and treasures (dedicated to my granddaughter) or even a shrine!

    43. Lynne Says:

      This looks like a versatile little piece! I’m thinking a sweet mini shop display piece.

    44. Roe Says:

      Of course I’d have to do a Halloween themed wardrobe. Probably for a witch.

    45. Debbie S. Says:

      Love the Wardrobe and the toy store, so many options. I have always planned to do a toy store. I have been collecting for it, could use the wardrobe in the store for a display. Congrats to Barb M.

    46. Jackie P Neal Says:

      Seeing how all the ingredients will be there for a fairy wardrobe, I would go this route…although I thought it might be fun to add a hiding Krampus inside! !!!

    47. Jackie P Neal Says:

      Merry Christmas everyone at Alpha Stamps!
      Thanks for a great 2017!

      Because I love Christmas so much, I would give the Fairy Godmother a Christmas themed wardrobe!
