New Kitchen Miniatures, Baking Art/Sale & Free GIFT!

Filed under Miniature Baking, Rhonda Secrist Thomas, Shannon Cooper

Lots of cute miniature items have arrived (mostly with a baking/cozy kitchen theme). Plus I picked out 2 very different baking-themed art projects to inspire.

In addition to the new items, back-in-stock items, and items in the gift kit, I added BOTH supply lists from the art projects to the new sale!

So I’m diving in with a few of the new things first. And don’t forget to read to the bottom for the DISCOUNT code on the sale collection!

Let’s Bake! by Design Team Member Shannon Cooper

This is such a cute kitchen mini project! Shannon started with sunny wallpaper and all the resin buttons from the Tiny Retro Bakery Box 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!

Here’s an intro from Shannon’s blog post:

The Tiny Retro Bakery Box Kit started me on this path, with its delightful kitchen themed buttons, 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!

Lots of items in Shannon’s project are back in stock (including the wooden table and spoon rack). Note: I’ve put everything in Shannon’s BIG supply list on sale! More info below… after more photos from this fun project.

There’s a work table in the center that holds pots, pans, and bowls on the bottom self, plus all of the baking accoutrements on the top: a 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), a milk bottle, muffin pan, rolling pin, cookie cutter, metal bowl, a cookbook, and a smattering of jars.

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. 🙂

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 with a label from a collage sheet, red canisters, more jars and containers, a rooster, a couple more cookbooks, and a tiny picnic basket (omitting the handle).

Note some substitutes I’ve added to the sale:
28mm Brown Fruit Bowl (for the second set of stacked bowls under the table)
Cup of Cocoa with Whipped Cream (there is one on top of the work table but this is a new style)
Tiny Round Serving Plate (for under the tart on the tabletop)
Tall Milk Bottle with Red Label (a pretty close match to the milk bottle also on the table… plus one of these is in the gift kit!)

Back in Stock

Note that the table is in Shannon’s artwork (plus the spoon rack and nut cracker). The 2 chipboard items (and ribbon set) are in Rhonda’s project (more info below).

Something Old & Something New Baking Journal
by Design Team Member Rhonda Thomas

I love this bright and jam-packed journal by Rhonda! She added lots of pockets to the 3 tabbed pockets already included in the Pocket Folio. And added tons of ephemera (new and old) into all the pockets.


Rhonda obviously had fun adding images and charms (and buttons, and miniatures, and ribbons…) to her pages and to the journal’s binding (see all the charms hanging from the baker’s twine binding). She also has tutorial photos on her blog post about how she tied the tabbed pages into the journal cover.

As an example of extra pockets: see the wide photo below with the triangular RED pocket (with the housewife holding an ice cream scoop… plus I spy a grater and a rolling pin on that pocket):

The inside back cover of the Pocket Folio was a great spot to add another pocket. Again, I just added some cut paper (the triangular red bit) and glued it down on two sides. Perfect spot for more collage sheet images.

Visit Rhonda’s blog post for lots more photos and info; and here’s her Supply List.
