Design-a-House

Remarkable Holiday Madness Blog Tour - Day 4

I knew immediately that I wanted to play with the new Decor Accents Design-a-House from the Holiday Mini Catalog (page 37).  I can't believe it only costs $5.95!!  What A Bargain!!!

I have seen many beautiful designs by other Stampin' Up! demonstrators - many gingerbread houses and haunted houses that would knock you out with their creativity.  Well, because I do not want to even try to compete with theirs (Hey, I have feelings ya know LOL), I decided to make a replica of my house, sorta.


I  used the Deck The Halls fabric from the Holiday Mini, like yesterday's nite lite sample, for the door, roof & chimney.  The 'siding' is made from the 1/2" Seam Binding (Mini page 21).  The window trim & other white trims are made from fun foam bought at a local craft show.  The land is from a foam core poster board that I cut with my Hobby Blade (IB&C page 199) then used a mix of ink pads (Pear Pizazz, Certainly Celery, Old Olive, & Always Artichoke) I just rubbed the pads directly onto the board to make it look like grass....my real grass isn't all one beautiful color either. Pine cone trees from the tree outside my daughters apartment and the sidewalk is made a sheet of Deck The Halls Designer Series Paper (Mini page 18) - add in some 'moss' with my Always Artichoke Stampin' Write Marker (IB&C page 169).  

Want to see the inside?    Great, come on in- my alter ego is waiting on the sofa to greet you!    Oh, and check out that cute little door knob.........it comes in kit!  How Cool Is That?
 Wall paper from Deck the Halls DSP, Drapery from the matching material, photo, and a chandelier too (made from the snowflake punch, and 2 Basic Pearl halves combine to make that center drop, and you can't see it, but the Basic Rhinestones are the bulbs, both from the Jewels (IB&C page 188).  OK....there are too many products to keep typing them all out - but all of the furniture, including the 'glass' table are made with Stampin' Up! products, punches, and Big Shot dies.  The 'homeowner' is from a retired set and the copy of the IB&C on the table...printed from my computer (reduced in size of course)  Here's the rest of the house.....





One thing you may not know is that the Decor Accents Design-a-House also comes with patterns!  This makes designing your house so EZ.  I am only showing a small part of the patterns.  You can't see all the pieces, and I want to point out that there are separate window patterns for the windows (and all windows) that you see in this photo.  Stampin' Up! really thought this kit through! Love It!
Off to work on more projects . . . see you tomorrow!  Until then, enjoy the rest of today's tour.
