Houseful of Fun Craft

Welcome everyone! I want to 'Show and Tell' what I am Hooked on (houses anyone?)...and I want to show you the sweetest little house! There are so many wonderful blog parties today so click on the links to check them out!

Show and Tell at Kelli's House. I have been working on some tiny little books, scrapbooks, recipe books-as gifts. This is one!
This is a fun little craft. I went to the Stampington site below and they offer free templates. I downloaded this house template and then just cut with scissors the design on scrapbook paper I picked out.


I ended up cutting it a little differently because I wanted it longer....

Then I used my new Martha Stewart paper cutter to make some grass for the front of the house. I love how this turned out!
Then I added a door to the front of the house, little flowers, ric rac (one of my favorite embellishments!) and a little stitching by pen to the edge of the house.

I used a hole punch on the roof and then tied a ribbon through it connecting the pages.

On the back I spelled LOVE with stickers. I think I am going to have to make another one in other colors. Have fun with it if you make one. There are other wonderful templates on the Stampington site! WooHoo!
