A little village

Hello dear crafters!

Can you feel the warmth of the Christmas spirit in the air? I hope you are enjoying this magical time of the year!

Today I would like to share with you my little village! Since we are in the midst of the holiday season I want to inspire you with this project that was created using the Home Sweet Home Thinlits Dies from the 2016 Holiday Catalog. I have a tutorial on how to make these adorable houses posted on 08/28/16.

For this project I used a piece of cardboard for the base (I used the back cover of one of my DSP) I hot glued 2 different size boxes to the base, then I added a battery operated light string and then I added a snow blanket on top (both purchased at my local craft store) The final touch of course was adding the little houses to make my village, I secure them to the snow blanket with hot glue.



I hope you enjoy this project and you give it a try.

Tea Box

Hello friends!

I have been having so much fun with the "A Nice Cuppa" stamp set and coordinating framilits and papers that I decided to make another little box.


These are the supplies I used:
·         A Nice Cuppa stamp set #140683
·         Cups and Kettles framelits dies #140624 or Bundle & save 15% #141074
·         Enamel Dots #140554
·         Delightful Dijon ink pad #138327
·         3/4" circle punch #119873
·         Scallop Oval Punch #119856
·         Small flower from the Itty Bitty Acc3nts Punch Pack #133787

Measurements:

Base Card stock of your choice 10" x 8.5"
Designer paper of your choice 2 pieces each:
3" x 2 1/2"
3" x 1 3/4"
2 1/2" x 1 3/4"
1 3/4 square

To make the box use the Gift Bag Punch Board and use the measurements to make a small bag. 
Score the horizontal line first on the 10" side; then use the measurements to make a small bag scoring only on the S and the side (don't score on the triangle side); next use your score board and score at 2" and 4" on the 8 1/2 side and then turn your paper to the 11" side and just finish scoring the box on the areas you were not able to score on the punch board using your previously score lines as a guide.

Here is the video tutorial.
