    New Forest Tea Party Paper & Chipboard PLUS Tea Party SALE!

    Filed under Back in Stock, Fairy Garden, Giveaways, Sale

    This new Forest Tea Party 6×6 Paper Pad is such a cute set! A sweet mix of rabbits, deer, foxes, hedgehogs, snails, squirrels, birds & mice. With teacups in the forest (and some sitting in the teacups and saucers). Of course they are.

    Contains 24 double-sided cardstock sheets (4 each of 6 different designs).

    Plus there are 3 cute new chipboard sets that coordinate — and a related new SALE!

     
    What else is NEW today?

    I LOVE these chipboard sets (related to the new paper)! They are both etched and tinted (and can be colored using paints, inks, pencils, etc.) but I think they are beautiful just as they are!

     
    Back in Stock, too!

    An odd group together but all 3 of these are popular (and those cute little owls have been unavailable for ages)!

     
    Tea Party SALE!

    I was inspired by the new Forest Tea Party Paper & Chipboard! This sale is a mixed group of items: from charms to miniatures to collage sheets. A fairly tight group (38 items) but all so useful! Tons of tea cups & tea pots!

    New Outdoorsy Miniatures + New Artwork & Giveaway!

    Filed under Giveaways, Kristin Batsel, Miniatures, Tiny Retro Bakery Box Kit

    Tiny Bakery Box and Book by Design Team Member Kristin Batsel

    Tiny is right! Scroll down just a bit and you can see the size of the 2.5×2.5 Kraft Folding Box (also included in this month’s kit). Lucky thing that Kristin had a tiny chunky book in her stash that fit inside: Kristin’s little book & gift box is perfect!

    Here’s an intro from Kristin’s blog post to get us started:

    This month’s new Alpha Stamps kit contains the cutest little bakery box you have ever seen! At 2.5″ x 2.5″, it fits perfectly in the palm of your hand. (I can’t help thinking that it would be the perfect size for an American Girl doll.) The box is easy to put together and fun to decorate. Who wants fresh baked donuts?

    I gently removed the window cellophane on the box lid in order to trim the decorative paper added to the top of the box. Once that paper was trimmed, I replaced the cellophane and added a picture of yummy donuts so they’d show through the window. Mmm! Tiny polymer clay cake slices make a fun swirly design element for the box top.

    Polka dot paper on the inside top of the box hides the back of the donut photo. I just happened to have the perfect sized chunky book that fit in this little box, so I altered it with Delicious Scrapbook papers and vintage housewives.

    Great job, Kristin!! I love the tiny size of the patterns on those scrapbook papers. You can see more photos on Kristin’s blog post. (Plus see below — after the cute new minis — for a Giveaway that includes everything in Kristin’s supply list!)

     
    What is new today? Outdoorsy Minis!

    New or back in stock: like the popular Metal Cauldron or Pot and the natural color of the Mini Wooden Barrels! See all the new items here.

     
    Tiny Bakery Box Giveaway!

    Yes, I said it! EVERYTHING in Kristin’s Supply List is included in today’s Giveaway!

    Starting with the Tiny Retro Bakery Box Kit — shown in the photo at right! (That’s 15 items… hm, in the kit, not in my photo!)

    Just click on this Supply List link for photos and links to everything in Kristin’s artwork, which are also all included in the Giveaway!

    Plus the 3 items in the row below (that’s the full sets of the Bakery Box Banners and Tiny Baking chipboard sets — a mini version with just a few trims from each set is in the kit). And the Polymer Clay Valentine Hearts Slice Mix cuz they’d be a fun alternative to the cake slices Kristin used on the box top!

    To enter the Tiny Bakery Box 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 Night, January 22, 2021).

    And tell me: what will you make from these items?

    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.

    Let’s Bake! by Design Team Member Shannon Cooper!

    Filed under Miniatures, Shannon Cooper, Tiny Retro Bakery Box Kit

    This is such a cute kitchen mini project! Shannon started with this month’s kit, plus a couple pieces of 1:12 furniture (and a ton of tiny things!) to make a scene with a very mid-century feel!

    And… as there’s a new sale on the Baking Theme: most everything in Shannon’s project is on sale!

    Back to today’s artwork: here’s an intro from Shannon’s blog post:

    I know a lot of people have decided to pass the time in the kitchen baking cookies, pastries, cakes, and bread. My daughter has perfected the cheesecake with zero cracks. Truly amazing. Since I do not bake anymore, I did the next best thing — miniature “baking”!

    The Tiny Retro Bakery Box Kit started me on this path, with its delightful kitchen themed buttons, new collage sheets, a tiny mixing bowl…ack! It is too much! So, naturally, I took that stuff along with some other bits and bobs and crammed it in a 7×7 Corner Room Box. Yay!

    There’s a work table in the center that holds pots, pans, and bowls, plus all of the baking accoutrements on the top: kitchen blender (eeek, there’s a plug!), blue measuring cup (technically a coffee cup in a gorgeous retro color but a few swipes with a Sharpie turned it into a measuring cup), milk, muffin pan, rolling pin, cookie cutter, spatula, items from the kit, and a smattering of jars. Also a very cute mini cup of hot chocolate.

    A bit of paint has been added to the cutting board before being hung on the wall. I think it adds a nice touch, plus I really like that button. The shank was snipped off the back so it lays flat. The same was done to all of the buttons used, but I have a second set to sew onto something later. 🙂

    You can see the other buttons hung on the opposite wall alongside a spoon rack which I have been hoarding until the right moment. It belongs here.

    The hutch in the back has tons of things on its shelves and inside the opening doors on the bottom, like a grater (another button!), honey jar, little lemon cakes, red canisters, more jars and containers, a rooster, and a canister for spoons and a whisk.

    Great job, Shannon!! You can see more photos on Shannon’s blog post. And here’s her supply list. (Plus see below for more info on the related new sale!)

     
    What else is new today?

    New or back in stock: like the popular Iridescent Water Bubble Microbead Mix! See all the new items here.


    NEW Sale: Baking Theme

    Tons of items from miniatures to collage sheets (like the tiny cook book covers on the Domestic Little Books Collage Sheet at right) and even this month’s kit — all on sale at 25% off! Over 170 items! And this group includes many things in Shannon’s supply list!

    Psst: anything on clearance in this collection is marked down to 50% off!

    The sale ends SATURDAY NIGHT, January 16th at midnight PST. See the entire sale collection here!

    Here’s examples of clearance items in the sale (50% off)!

    Beautiful Miniature Decanters, Plus EXTRA 10% off EVERYTHING!

    Filed under Giveaways, Miniatures, Sale, Streets of Paris

    I thought of subtitling this newsletter “Sympathy for the Post Office.” I do sympathize; they have a lot more boxes to contend with, under a lack of funding and less worker bees than normal. On the other hand, I have many packages with new goodies delayed en route…

    So even though there are some lovely new items shown below, I’m giving you all an EXTRA 10% off what (zillion) items are already here! That’s 10% above current sale prices on the ENTIRE SITE!! Even if the item is already marked down as a clearance item or is one of the new items below!

    Use Promo Code: USPS when checking out.

    No minimum purchase required (excludes gift certificates/cards, shipping, taxes). May not be combined with another discount code.

    The coupon discount ends at midnight (PST) TUESDAY NIGHT, January 12, 2021!

     
    New Items

    Wow! The 3 new decanters are even nicer than I imagined. Those 3 and the new Mini Glass Cake Plate with Dome (also below) remind me of Laura Carson’s Black Cat Cafe from her Streets of Paris project. (Hint: see below for a Giveaway based on that project.)

     
    Revisiting the Black Cat Cafe Giveaway!

    Do you remember that amazing Streets of Paris project Laura made? Her Black Cat Cafe scene included display cases outside the cafe (like the close-ups at left), a patio with outdoor seating, and more seating and a bar inside (see far below for a photo of the bar, plus a close-up of some of the bottles below).

    I’m starting out this prize package with 1 each of the TWELVE bottles Laura used in that bar (not bad… 2-1/2 years later and we still have 12 out of the original 15 in stock)! Plus the Cafe Bottle Labels Collage Sheet Laura designed for labelling the bottles.

    AND I’m adding all 3 of the new decanters shown above! That’s 16 items in the prize!

    (Psst: If you want to see all of the supplies Laura used in that cafe, here’s the full list.)

    To enter the Revisiting the Black Cat Cafe 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 Night, January 11, 2021).

    And tell me: what will you make from these items?

    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.

    Tiny & Tinier

    Filed under Back in Stock, Miniatures

    It just seems that’s where today’s new items are heading: tiny and tinier! (Plus I devised a related sale on that theme; more info below.) But to start, here are some of this week’s new items:

     
    Bunches of Minis are Back in Stock!

    Some things I’ve been awaiting since June! Catching up on late December arrivals:

     
    Tiny & Tinier Sale – 25% off!

    What an odd little group! I created a new collection of every item with “tiny” or “tinier” in the name! Yes, it’s a completely mixed bag (from Dresden to Collage Sheets to Resin to Laser Cuts) and there could be some items smaller than these that didn’t get caught up in the 233 items (!) ’cause they didn’t meet the name condition.

    25% off plus anything on clearance in this group is marked down to 50% off!

    The sale ends FRIDAY NIGHT, January 8th at midnight PST.

    A few highlights are below; see the entire sale collection here!

    We have the winner to announce from Sunday’s Tiny Retro Bakery Box Kit Giveaway: the winner is Jaimi B! Check your email for info about your prize package!)

    New Tiny Retro Bakery Box Kit plus more New Items & a Giveaway!

    Filed under Collage Sheets, Giveaways, Miniatures, Tiny Retro Bakery Box Kit

    Tiny Retro Bakery Box Kit

    What a flurry of tiny baking/bakery goods! One thing led to another and this kit ended up with FIFTEEN items (!)… so many that I’d recommend you check them all out here.

    This production began with the very cute (and tiny) 2.5×2.5 Kraft Folding Boxes. They’re like a tiny shadowbox! They come with a cellophane window but simple enough to remove it, if desired.

    Then I kinda went wild thinking up tiny banners and signage to turn the box into a cafe or bakery. Some of the photos above (and the snippet at right) show some of the chipboard banner options (and a couple of the color sign options from the new collage sheets, too). The kit includes a custom set of chipboard trims drawn from the 2 new sets designed for this theme.

    Yes, there are TWO new collage sheets!
    Tiny ’50s Baking Props Half Sheet and
    Tiny Bakery Signage Half Sheet

    And a blizzard of embellishments (6 resin shank buttons in perfect coodinating hues (and of course: theme) for the tiny bakery AND a metal mixing bowl and spoon). Don’t worry if you don’t sew: Just a quick snip with side-cutter pliers and the shank is gone and the buttons are ready to glue flat onto a collage.

    Speaking of coodinating colors: I have forgotten then possibly coolest thing in this kit: the new Delicious Scrapbook Papers! I love the retro colors and the teeny tiny prints. The kit includes 1 each of FOUR double-sided 6″ x 6″ sheets.

    What have I forgotten now… tiny Ric Rac ribbon! So cute to edge a retro apron or pot holder. The kit includes 1 yard each of 2 colors.

    Go see the new kit for more info and more photos (plus related new items and a Giveaway are below).

     
    More New Baking Items!

    Even more than the cuties below so check here to see everything new today (including the kit, 25 items)!

     
    Tiny Retro Bakery Box Kit Giveaway!

    Starting with the new Tiny Retro Bakery Box Kit — shown again in the photo at right! (That’s 15 items… hm, in the kit, not in my photo!)

    Plus the 3 items in the row above (those blue coffee cups are too fab)!

    To enter the Tiny Retro Bakery Box Kit 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 Night, January 4, 2021).

    And tell me: what will you make from these items?

    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.

Who knew I had so many options for this theme lurking! The 3 chipboard items are only available in this mini kit (that’s an odd little scallop shell purse in my hand (the back includes 2 holes for adding a ribbon or chain… obviously for a fashionable mermaid!), plus a submarine and a beach umbrella).
