1:12th scale printable: Swapping with Ms. E

Good afternoon good folk of the good earth!

I hope you are all being crafty and planning little bitty things for the season! I am working on my many projects and items for the fair.

One of the things I wanted to do this year was have a handy little printout to show the different scales available for building with. I am also going to be bringing a 1:12th 1:24th and 1:48th piece of furniture as a little display piece for people to have a gander at.

Now I will first have a disclaimer..this is just random shots I found on the web no links to whom and it is simply to get a general idea of 1:12th scale. I did not measure everything on the page down to the cm so this guide is just a quick example for people to get eye scale down before they get into the exact science of 1:1 scale.

I am sure there are many wonderful books about that will give you better examples and measurements but this guide I think ...is pretty accurate

So print from my link here: 1:12th scale examples

On the top it will say print, and a box will pop up from the left that will let you set "margins" to "none" Also remove the header and footer option by unclicking.

After you print the sheet check the ruler to yours and make sure it printed to correct scale. Let me know if your folks have any issues with it..if its off.. so on.. and I will fix it..

I wanted to share a picture of the item me and the fabulous Ms. E of http://studioeminiatures.blogspot.com swapped. I think we decided it was simply a artistic exchange of ideas..not a swap, right Elizabeth?

Of course you all know what a simply stunning miniature artist and builder she is but also a fine lady and blog friend to many of us! Here is a picture of the jaw dropping beauty she sent me.

The details are stunning! Pasta, oil, jar of cherries the tin of cooking supplies parchment! Of course this is all set on a gorgeous shelf that she painted with the most amazing detail. You can see the dish rag and strainer measuring spoons..just WOW..Jaw dropping..immaculate work! 

A lot of these amazing items can be found as tutorials on her blog, as I am sure most of you know ;)

I have gotten so many lovely kitchen items from friends and my big goal since I started miniatures was to make a kitchen scene... I think its certainly time to make this happen!

I sent ms E a little basket of mushrooms, she did say she liked mushrooms ;)

Thank you again Elizabeth for honoring me with this wonderful exchange of artistic ideas!! 


  1. I love the basket of mushrooms that you have sent, and also the gift that you have received a great job!

  2. La estantería de cocina es preciosa, pero la cesta de setas es genial, está perfecta.
    Te felicito por el regalo y el buen trabajo que has hecho.
    Gracias por el imprimible.
    Un abrazo

  3. Creo que sois las dos unas grandes artesanas. Tanto la estantería como la cesta son una maravilla.

  4. Beautiful, detailed gifts you sent each other. Both of you are very fortunate! xo Jennifer

  5. Ooh, thanks for sharing her blog! I'm always on the lookout for new sites to add to my bookmarks. And what a lucky lady she is to receive some of your shrooms!

  6. Wonderful gifts! Every detail in them is perfect!

  7. Hello Jane,
    Great printouts for the season! I adore Elizabeth and her work. Great swap.
    Big hug,

  8. Hello Jane i love basket of mushrooms! Kiss

  9. Great swap! I do love the mushrooms very much. They look fantastic in that basket! The kitchen wall piece is stunning too. Thank you for the link!

  10. Thanks for this scale-printie! And what a wonderful swap - on both sides! Looks like we are going to see a wonderful kitchen scene of yours in the near future... of course after you're done with working miracles for Halloween and Christmas and... oh my... I should better get back to my crafting table... ;O)


  11. Hi Jane! Yes Indeed, your basket of mushrooms AND YOUR apple tart and the bundt cake, that you neglected to mention, were ALL WONDERFUL!!! Thank You once again for giving me the opportunity to include some of your Minifanaticus Specialties in my dollhouse! I adore those mushrooms Jane and I would love to have a few loose ones to have included on the kitchen table..... sigh...... sigh some more...... :))
    Anyway, I hope that you WILL DO a kitchen scene because I know that it would be just as Incredible as everything else that you have done!

    p.s. I have been had to put a lot of my minis on hold for the time being. My Real Life has taken over again. I am trying to keep up when I can, but forgive me if when you find I am lagging behind.

  12. Thanks for the printable guide Jane. :)

    Elizabeth makes just wonderfully detailed miniatures. I can't believe she was able to pack so many goodies onto that small shelf! I think my favorite piece (if I had to pick one!) would be the strainer. So rustic!

  13. Thanks for the printable guide.
    I really like this swap.

  14. Hi Jane, what wonderful and beautiful gifts you both made , the mushrooms look so realistic !
    Thank you for the printies :)

    Hugs Mieke xxx

  15. Hi Jane! I've just found your blog again, it was not in my readers list again (I have problems with this list for months and it seems it can't be solved by blogger, arghh!).
    Thanks for the link and the scale print. Yes, many of us know Elizabeth's work, I too: just like you, she makes the most wonderful miniatures! You both did a wonderful swap: so amazing and beautiful miniatures of you both :D!
    Hugs, Ilona!

  16. Джейн, поздравляю! Замечательный обмен! Вы и Элизабет - два больших таланта! Ваши работы всегда меня восхищают!

  17. Wonderful swap gifts both given and received. Elizabeth's shelf is wonderful and your mushrooms are amazing.
    Hugs Maria

  18. Great swap with Elisabeth =)
    And thanks for the printie! I always wanted something to compare size with =)

  19. que buen intercambio!

  20. I love that printable sheet. When you start off in minis it's so confusing. This is a great guide.
    Your mushrooms and Elizabeth's shelf look like they belong together in the same scene. You two are so talented. It's just amazing.
