French Fashion Miniatures, New & on Sale + Artwork by Laura Carson!

Filed under Back in Stock, Laura Carson, Miniatures, Shadowbox/Room Box, Streets of Paris, Tutorials

Do you remember Design Team Member Laura Carson’s amazing The Streets of Paris series? It was a series of post leading to building a group of miniature Parisian shops in 1:12 scale. You can see all the posts from the series.

BUT FIRST: there’s a FREE GIFT with all orders placed today (May 26, 2022): a set of the Mini Hat Stands! (All 5 shown in the photo at left.) By the way, that set is back-in-stock today and was also in Laura’s artwork I’m featuring today.

TODAY I’m focusing on the Maison de la Mode – House of Fashion Boutique from Laura’s series. Plus I made a new collection from Laura’s supply list — and put them all on Sale! More info below!

Maison de la Mode – House of Fashion Boutique


I love the contrast of that bright blue window with all the ochre of the building exteriors. Plus all the lovelies on display! I also like how Laura mixed up the display windows (so the downstairs blue window outside the cafe is for the upstairs boutique).

Lots of the pieces Laura covered in past posts (like making shelves from slides, making & decorating purses & shoes — and of course, constructing the buildings and adding wallpaper) are all coming together in today’s project.

As you can see (above), the boutique takes up the entire second floor of the shops. Laura added interior doorways between the 3 room boxes so that the top floor can be one shop.

Note: Laura created an elevator between the 2 floors in a separate post (but you can see a bit of the gold railing on the bottom left corner of the right photo below).


Laura created FOUR collage sheets and TWO Digital Image Sets for this project (whew!), with lots of posters & magazines to decorate/display. And more construction-y (my new word) items like pieces to build awnings (and mini shopping bags). Here are all of the collage sheets and digital sets used in the boutique.

See everything Laura used (inside and out) in her Maison de la Mode supply list. (Note: as Laura covered making the buildings for this project in an earlier post, those items are in a separate blog post.)

Come back after enjoying her new video tutorial (and lots more info & photos) for more back-in-stock supplies, and that SALE drawn from Laura’s project!

More New & Back-in-Stock Miniatures!

Many of these are either in Laura’s artwork or would be cute in a little boutique. (The 3 items in the row above plus everything shown below that does not say “new” are all in Laura’s artwork so included in today’s sale!) Check this link to see everything new or back-in-stock this week.

NEW: Maison de la Mode SALE

This is a custom collection that includes the ALL the supplies from Laura’s Maison de la Mode artwork! Note: I snuck in a few substitutions, too (like the Shop Counter at far right, as the wooden one Laura used has been unavailable for ages).

Use coupon FASHION when checking out to get an additional 20% off on EVERYTHING in this collection!

The sale ends SATURDAY NIGHT, May 28th at midnight PST.
