    Cabana Beach House and New Beachy Charms! ALL Houses on SALE!

    Filed under Art Projects, Back in Stock, Giveaways, Kristin Batsel, Laura Carson, Sale, Tutorials

    Ohh! Remember the Cabana Row House Set? (Ages ago though we’ve continued selling the mini set — shown below.) Well this Single Cabana Row House is one of the houses from that original full-size set (my favorite of the house shapes, with all kinds of coordinating embellishments — windows/doors, palm trees, beach umbrellas/trims).

    So today (in addition to the return of this house), we’ve got tons of new beach-themed charms! AND a new sale on all HOUSES which includes the new house, and the mini set mentioned above, but also chipboard houses (and birdhouses); resin or ceramic or wooden 3D houses; even a NEW metal lighthouse charm and a NEW haunted house charm!

    And, in honor of the return of this cabana house, I’ve picked out TWO projects from the Design Team to show some art ideas (from 2016… I did say AGES ago)!

    I’ll stop babbling: let’s start with the new goodies!

    What is new today?

    And back in stock, too! Oh, those resin bottles have been hard to come by! Plus there are even more new beach-themed charms highlighted down in today’s Giveaway. Lots of items today: click here to see all of them!

    NEW Flash Sale: ALL Houses!

    This collection has tons of houses: chipboard houses to decorate; resin or ceramic or wooden 3D houses; even the new lighthouse charm, new haunted house charm or birdhouse charms!

    30% off on EVERYTHING in this BIG group: Over 60 items!

    Psst: anything tagged clearance or clearance charms in this collection is marked down to 50% off!

    The sale ends MONDAY NIGHT, May 11th at midnight PST. See the entire sale collection here!


    Of course there’s artwork! As I mentioned above, I’ve picked out 2 projects using the Single Cabana Row House.

    First, there’s this set of Mini Beach Cabanas by Kristin Batsel! (That center one is the back-in-stock house.) Kristin used images of some bathing beauties (hiding behind doors and windows) throughout.

    On the far right house: she used scallopy wave trim (and that fat seahorse on the door) from the Seaside Decor & Beach Umbrellas set. That set also provided the starfish and a sand dollar (above the doors of the other 2 houses).

    Plus Kristin used the Seaside Doors & Windows Set for the door in the center house. The 4-pane window on the side of the house on the left side is also from that set.

    Kristin ran cardstock through her die-cutting machine to make the shingles on all her houses, but the Chipboard Scalloped Shingles – Half Scale is a good size to shingle the roof instead.

    See everything in the Mini Beach Cabanas supply list. And here’s a link to Kristin’s original blog post (with helpful tips about constructing the chipboard house)!

    Hooray for the Cabana Beach House Giveaway!

    Next, there’s the beautiful Shell Cottage by Laura Carson! Laura used the same Cabana Row House (and Seaside Decor & Beach Umbrellas and Seaside Doors & Windows Set) as Kristin, but the results are soooo different!

    That fussy cut babe is also from a collage sheet that Kristin used: Bathing Beauties #2. The shuttered windows and the doors on Laura’s house are from the Window Frames & Shutters Collage Sheet. And Laura painted the Palm Trees in the background (they’re also shown in a photo below).

    See everything in Laura’s supply list. Note #1: Laura made TWO projects on that date, so her supply list also includes items from a Rose Cottage — both can be seen on the original blog post.

    Note #2: Laura’s blog post has lots of eye candy and tips but come back here for links to her supplies!

    A special treat: One lucky winner will get all of these items used on one (or both) of the art projects shown today!
