    Mini Lemonade Market Stall! Fruit on SALE!

    Filed under Art Projects, Beach Cabana Kit, Miniatures, Shannon Cooper

    Before I get to the AMAZING “All Things Lemon” Market Stall by Design Team Member Shannon Cooper, there’s a new set of papers (also used in that artwork): Summer Fruit Stand 12×12 Paper Set. It’s a set of FIVE double-sided cardstock-weight sheets with bright, fun prints (and nice small sizes for small projects). From dots & stripes to lemonade and cherries.

    And in honor of this new paper set (and more new lemony things shown below): the Fruit Collection is on sale through tomorrow night (Monday night, August 17th)! (So the new paper is included, too!) More info on the sale is below!

     
    All Things Lemon by Shannon Cooper!

    Wow! Amazing is right! Beside being a beautiful little miniature scene: the new Market Stall Niche Add-On is only 3-1/2″ tall! It was made to be attached to the front of the Cabana House Niche Shrine to create a mini market stall. I swear Shannon must have tiny elves that help her with these super-mini projects.

    Here’s some of the intro text from Shannon’s blog post:

    Oh, August. I’m going to be honest with you. You’re miserable. And hot. And buggy. And these daily afternoon downpours only make it worse. Doing anything outside (or even opening the door) is right out. So I thumb my nose at you, August! My curtains are closed, the lights are off, and my new Niche Shrine from Alpha Stamps arrived, so I don’t even have to think about you.

    This unbearable weather has me a little irritable, but luckily, creating a cute little market stall distracted me long enough to change my attitude.

    What better way to cool off than with a nice, tall glass of lemonade! Maybe have a lemon tart or two?

    I love, love all of the niche shrines. They are quick and super fun to make. Each new one instantly turns into my favorite, but this little Cabana House Niche Shrine with the Market Stall Niche Add-On? Be still my heart! And it is super tiny; an amazing 5 1/2″ tall and 3″ wide! The House Ornament Base that the market stall sits on is 4-1/2″ square and couldn’t have worked out more perfectly for the extra minis I added around the stall.

    I love this project, Shannon! Everything looks so realistic (and yummy) even though it’s so teeny tiny!

    Here’s Shannon’s supply list and you can read more in her blog post (plus get more info on papering the house, like the preview pic below… and that second photo showing how to transform a fence into a punny sandwich board).
