    New Prima & G45 & Stencils? Lacy Tags? Under the Sea? TWO Sales!

    Filed under Art Projects, Back in Stock, Giveaways, Newsletters, Rhonda Secrist Thomas, Sale, Spring Farmhouse Kit

    Wow! There are some cool new items today that I’ve been awaiting since January! Plus the styles/themes of all the goodies and artwork are so varied, I’m sure you’ll find something you need. And with all the different art styles, I’ve put TWO sections on sale! More info below.

    New Rusty Teapot Alterable Metal Frame!

    So cool… and screams for an Alice in Wonderland tea party scene!

    Including the spout, it is approx. 8-1/2″ wide” x 7-1/2″ tall” x 2-3/4″ deep. The back plate is removable so you can decorate the inside easier (I just bent the tabs with my fingers so no extra tools are needed — see the far right photo below).

    If you are so inclined, I included a photo with a side table and the back of a bookcase in 1:24 scale (to show size — see the first photo below)… which leads me to the first of today’s sales: ALL Half Scale Dollhouse Miniatures are ON SALE!

    Half Scale Dollhouse Miniatures on SALE at 25% off!

    We’ve been expanding this section: 50 items are included in the Half Scale Dollhouse Miniatures Sale!

    Psst! The sale includes the Half Scale End Table with Vintage Phone and the 1:24 Bookcase I showed for scale in the Rusty Teapot above.

    The sale ends at midnight TOMORROW NIGHT, March 25th.

    New Travel Album Set!

    A heavy chipboard album cover (with pockets on the inside of both front and back covers) that has an elastic closure AND 3 elastic loops that secure 3 notebooks inside:
    - 1 grid paper notebook
    - 1 watercolor paper notebook
    - 1 lined paper notebook

    Each of the 3 notebooks also has a heavy cover (and the notebook covers also have pockets on the inside of both front and back).

    Rearrange the notebooks… take one out to use separately (or to leave out while doodling)… you might want to use only 2 in the album if you go wild and make really thick artwork.

    The album is approx. 4-3/4″ wide x 8-3/4″ tall x 1-3/4″ deep. Each notebook is approx. 4-1/4″ wide x 8-1/4″ tall.

    Note: I used a giant manila tag as a prop in a few of the photographs — mainly for color contrast so you can see the various size/shape of pockets.

    New Stencils & Spring Time On The Farm by Design Team Member Rhonda Thomas

    Ah… how sweet! I love these vintage/shabby tags (and a box to hold them in) by Rhonda! Let’s start with an intro from Rhonda’s blog post:

    It’s finally Spring and I am ready! How about you? To celebrate, I made this Mini House Front Box that is included in the new Spring Farmhouse Kit.

    I decided to create some shabby farm-themed tags with bits of vintage paper and fabric along with the papers included in the kit: Spring Farmhouse 8×8 Papers and Eggs and Easter Collage Sheet. I have always been a fan of images of various bird eggs, so this worked perfectly.

    I had some extra goodies to use, the new Cathe Holden Eggs & Alphabet and Lillington Stencils. Just gave me so many options.

    I also love the fact that there are tiny holes on either side of the house so with a little twine I have the option to hang it from a hook or clothes pin. You could also use some wire, vintage lace or seam binding.

    Beautiful! I love Rhonda’s tags! Remember to come back after reading the rest of Rhonda’s blog post (and to see her idea of hanging her tag box) and/or seeing her supply list so you can enter today’s Giveaway! (And ’cause there’s a LACE sale so you can make some homepun tags like Rhonda’s!)

    Today’s 2nd Sale: ALL Lace ON SALE — 50% off!

    With all those lovely tags that include lace by Rhonda, I thought it was perfect timing: ALL Lace is on SALE at 50% off!

    The sale ends at midnight TOMORROW NIGHT, March 25th.
