my daughter wanted me to make a 'countdown supermarket' as she works at one. I made a box to begin with and cut out the long windows and the doors in the front. sponged the 'door frames' with Tim Holtz walnut stain distress ink and put a small brad for door handles. Inside in the back I glued pictures from their advertising of the 'fruit and veg' department, the butchery and bakery departments. Cut 2 ladies from the Pink cartridge and coloured them with Stampin up pens. Put them on with dimensionals so they looked like they were 'chatting' at the fruit and veg department. Used precut lettering for the 'countdown on the top. added their logo from their advertising flyer. Used florist wire to make the 'trolley bay' and made two trolleys from the basket on Tags Bags Boxes and More 2 cartridge. Put the handles to the side and added circles for wheels (they really do mean 'more' on that cartridge lol) flowers in the garden were from my stash. the traffic lanes are white ribbon and I cut the ENTRY from cricut basics. Stood the box on a black piece of card so that the card become the carpark. After taking the photos I cut 2 pieces of cardstock so that they formed a straight piece with a square on the top. I bent the narrower bottom of the piece of card and glued it to the garden and popped a flower on the piece that I had glued. These then formed the two poles that have advertising on them. It looked really good in the end and I am quite pleased with the end result. Just a shame that my photography is not so good.
