Bakery Window Box: addicted to scrapbook paper?

Good morning!

Last night I worked a bit more on the bakery display furniture. I have to admit that my preference for style leans towards the minimalist modern. My house is all earth tones browns and pretty plain as for a layout.

This is because I :

a: cannot decorate, I don't know how
b: don't understand why you cannot have a brown floor and brown furniture and brown rugs...
c: am not very girly

I have accepted this, but having a very girly, frilly daughter makes you look up terms like shabby chic, girly glam and dazzle design.

So where does a earth tones gal like me look to inspiration after looking up wiki?

Scrapbook Paper... and I may now be addicted to it.

You can see some of the patterns I have used in the furniture here:

I love the fact that on one piece of paper you can get seven different looks, designs, pieces etc..I have used this bakery paper before when wrapping boxes for food jewelry. I figure I will cut pieces and layer it as signs and pictures/art for the wall

 
I also have added a few pieces of trim to the furniture and added the scrapbook paper as wallpaper backing for the display.
 
You can see a few cake "blanks" that have yet to be decorated.
 


work continues.. maybe I will go look for more paper...I can stop anytime I want..I just... don't want to..

  1. Hi Jane, You are a woman after my own heart! I too, LOVE scrapbooking paper and I am always on the lookout for more! As you've mentioned they are versatile, Acid free, and usually you get at least 2-3 sheets and often double sided. They are wonderful and I have found that the craft section at a Super WalMart has a really good selection to choose from as well. Your choice of the bakery wall paper is sooo cute and your daughter is no doubt in her girly element as the 2 of you put this together! These are the treasured memories of tomorrow!
