    New Garden Minis, Garden Papers Return + Related Sale!

    Filed under Altered Tins, Art Projects, Back in Stock, Bella Ayers, Miniatures, Rhonda Secrist Thomas

    We have 2 beautiful paper pads back in stock (both from across the pond) and there are related altered tins using each design! Which inspired a brief return of the Altered Tins SALE!

    To start us off: the Imagine 8×8 Paper Pad is back! This pad has muted colors and layered collage images. It works really well as backgrounds on tiny projects, too. And you may recognize bits of these 2 sample sheets as backgrounds in the Fairyland Tin by Miz Bella (Kimberly Ayers) below!

     
    Fairyland Tin by Bella Ayers!

    You may remember this tin from Bella from about a year ago (when 3 garden-themed Altoids Inserts were announced). All 3 of those are used in Bella’s tin (though the Gothic Tree & Fence Insert is on the front cover — not shown here but you can see more photos in the original blog post). The Gazebo Insert and Ivy Corner Insert are both shown in the photo at right.

    Bella fussy-cut images from the Fairy Ballerinas and Signage & Doors for Tin Covers Collage Sheets and layered them with leaves, rose buds, and papers from the Imagine 8×8 Paper Pad.

    Beautiful work, Bella! Here’s her supply list and Bella’s blog post.

     
    A Secret English Garden by Rhonda Thomas!

    Yep, that’s the same Gazebo Insert, but it looks completely different with a whitewashed look in A Secret English Garden tin by Design Team Member Rhonda Thomas (scroll down just a bit to see the wide photo).

    And here’s the second returning paper today: the lovely English Garden 6×6 Paper Pad! It contains 40 pages printed on heavyweight cardstock (4 each of 10 double-sided sheets) with elegant pearlescent and spot-varnish effects.

    Rhonda covered her tin (inside and out) with these papers and picked up the color palette for “foliage” she punched with a fern paper punch (and painted the chipboard ferns on the front cover).

    The Signage & Doors for Tin Covers Collage Sheet was used again (for the “Secret Garden” sign on the front cover) plus the Winged Things Collage Sheet was the source for the very English-looking couple on the inside.

    Nice job, Rhonda! Here’s her supply list and blog post.

     
    What else is new today?

    (Beside the 2 paper pads already mentioned) these new (or back-in-stock) items are perfect for a miniature garden — starting with that new set of fern leaves!
