Home for Christmas


Just a really quick post before I go off to work. This is my entry for the Papertrey Guest Star Stamper contest for December using the Timeless Template Home Made.

I had recently finished making gingerbread houses and I still had them in mind when I made this house. The roof and sidewalk are made using Cosmo Cricket ' By Golly' paper. The walk is lined with pure poppy buttons. The roof and ground are glittered with an assortment of Martha Stewart glitters to make it really sparkle. I wanted trees but I didn't have any that were the right scale and then I decided I could make my own using the tree image from Holiday Tree. I stamped several and glued them together so they would stand up on the base and then I decorated them with Class-A-Peels stickers.

I hope you like it! I will come back later and post the full list of supplies.

This is so cute! Between the paper you chose for the roof and the buttons down the walkway, it really does look like there is candy here! It's wonderful!

This house is soooo adorable. Love all the glitters and the patterned paper that you used. And the tree behind the window is beautiful.

Stunning house! Great idea to use the trees from Holiday Tree to get trees of suitable proportions! Definitely reminds me of Hansel and Gretel's Gingerbread House!
