Paper Dolls :)

***Edited to add: tonight I will be at my daughters'Annie production performance, so I will be missing the Anya VSN and the PaperTrey release, but I will will be back to order and check out all the goodies, you can bet on that :)***

WhooooHooooo, lookie at what I came up with for my niece. A paper doll little play set :)

This is what started, let me start for the beginning. PaperTrey Ink added a new category for their Guest Star Stamper using Lauren's My Timeless Template. So I knew I wanted to try something this time around. Then over at Club Anya blog they were having a contest called Club Couture: Spring Fashion Show 2009 for the release of the new Anya stamps. Now when I think of a fashion show I was thinking of a RUNWAY!!!!!

So my concept of a paper doll play area took shape. On one side is the Runway part of it and the other is the forest :) I know my niece is gonna have a blast playing with this.

I used Anya & Ian and all their little clothes. I stamped, colored and cut all of them out. I had to figure out how to make the clothes be interchangeable, so I laminated the dolls and the clothes and then added magnets on them so they stay on to play with but easy to change when she wants her dolls to be dressed in something else :)

And this side is the forest. I used the stamp set, Forest Friends and Father knows Best over at PaperTrey Ink. I am so excited to mail this to her and can't wait to hear from her and hear what she thinks of it.

Thank you for letting me share this project with you. I had soo much fun making this and seeing it come together. Have a good Thursday, I will be in and out all day and actually until Saturday. My daughters performance of Annie is 3 days in a row with 4 showings, so it is gonna be busy busy for us.


  1. This is just the coolest idea, and i love that you laminated them {thought it may of been stamped on acetate at first} so you could have them interchangable, very clever indeed!

  2. This is such a cute idea!! I am sure your niece will have hours of fun with it.

  3. This turned out cool. I was wonderfing what template you were gonna use. Great job!!!

  4. How fun is this idea! I just love how it unfolds and would still fit easily on a shelf! Beautiful scenes you created and such gorgeous colorign!



Thanks for taking the time and leaving me a comment :)
