Inside Out Halloween House

Hello everyone!

Well, I'm finally back in the craft room, and just in time for Halloween.

I call this year's project the "Inside Out Halloween House".

On the outside it looks like a regular house, with lots of windows and a front door   But this house has a secret, which is....

...it opens up!

Hello everyone!

I have uploaded the construction videos for the Treetop Fairy Village and Mini Album to YouTube.

There is also a Materials & Cutting Guide, as well as Templates for the Village, and a Materials & Cutting Guide specifically for the mini album up on Dropbox.  These are all PDF files which can be downloaded for free.

Treetop Fairy Village & Mini Album

Hello everyone!
Here I am back with another new design- the Treetop Fairy Village.

The project features Graphic 45's Nature Sketchbook paper collection, and is about 17" tall on a 14" x 14" base.  Hidden inside the landscape is a mini album.

The trees have a PVC pipe structure, but otherwise the entire project is constructed from chipboard and paper.

There are three little houses in the village, and lots of flowers, Ladders provide access to all the levels and there is a bucket hoisting rig for bringing supplies up top. On the highest platform, there are lounge chairs for the fairies to relax and enjoy the view.

Winter Village - Completed Project

Hello everyone!

Back at the beginning of November I designed a village with 12 buildings and some stoops.  I called it the "Blank Canvas Village" because it was designed to showcase any desired theme, paper collection, or mixed media techniques.

I took my chipboard village and turned it into a winter village.  I chose this theme so I could play along with Linda Coughlin's Fifth Annual 12 Tags of Christmas.

The paper, techniques, embellishments etc. that I used on each of the 12 buildings were in some way inspired by the corresponding tag that Linda designed.
