About Me

I've been into dollhouse miniatures since the early 1990's now and when I realized how much I've learned during that time, I thought I'd make a blog to share my knowledge with others. I'm mostly auto-deduct, but always found help on the Internet and in specific books. The mini-world starts and ends with your own imagination, so let there be no limit. And never say : I CAN'T .... because you can, you just need to try and have the necessary know-how. And that's the main reason why I started this blog, because I wanna share what I know with newbies in the miniature world or anybody else who might be interested in sharing what I've learned so far. So, hopefully, I'll be able to provide some useful hints, tips and tricks for those of you out there just starting with this wonderful hobby

MY SCRAPBOOK SHOP : A look at all the items I made

Hello again, nice to see you've found your way back to my blog

As I mentioned previously, I will use this post to show you more detailed pictures of all the items I made for my scrapbook shop

Remember, when I started with this project, I didn't even really know what a scrapbook shop was or what you could buy there, so I needed to browse lots of ol-nline scrapbook shops in order to "learn"

Then came the challenge to make all these items in 1:12th scale of course. Even though I had some help from Joyce Dean's DVD, I still had to figure out a lot myself

So let get started :

Scrapbooking paper .... seems to be a huge and very important part in every shop

So I started by making a rack first and then I started to cut out all the paper patterns I had previously imported to my computer, downsized to be used as a miniature and printed out. I have 5 sheets of each paper and the rack is well filled

Here's a piece of furniture I made out of scratch, a display for the stickers and cut-outs, rubbber stamps and more

Rubber stamps

Metal tacks

I even made 2 different sizes of albums

Wrapping paper



Rub on's

All sorts of closeout's


Paper kits

Ink pads




Another well filed shelf (DIY of course)

All the embellishments

and they fit into my DIY rack of course

Die Shapes (these hang on the wall)

as well as these self adhesive stickers

and cards

or tags

and cardstock stickers, all neatly displayed on the wall of my shop

and of course, last but not least, my shop needed a sign


I even thought of making gift vouchers for my shop

This is what you see on your right when you enter the shop .... and it gives a little privacy to Stacey, the owner, when she sits at her desk and does some paper work or simply enjoys a cup of coffee

Everything's in place

And the customers seem happy

This is a look behind the counter ... there is and old fashioned cash register and lots of stuff I made

A bird's eye view at Stacey's little work space

and to finish this post, a look at the left wall of Stacey's personal space with pictures of ..... me and my hubby on one of our vacations in NYC πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€, ah I just love to add these little personal details

I hope you've enjoyed the tour of my Scrapbook Shop
Now I'm off to play with my 2 crazy cats

See ya soon
thanks for stopping by


  1. By the way, I used to subsribe to the tv...Do you know if they are all old videos? I thought they stopped recording them. I met one of the presenters from the show at the Tom Bishop show in Chicago.

  2. This shop is complete! I can't think of another thing it might need!
