Thanks for all the positive comments on my post last weekend. I appreciate all of them dearly. That's one thing that's amazing about being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator--joy in creating.
In order to make the blog hop viewable, we are limited to 4 photos per post. Otherwise, hoppers could be there all day! I wanted to add more photos and details about my projects, so here they are. Wednesday will bring a tutorial on the gingerbread house. Come on back to see that!
First, the pumpkin.
"Hexagon Box Tutorial." As I wrote in my original post, one of her swaps at Convention was a cute little hexagon box. I thought it looked just like a pumpkin and wanted to make one. So very cute! I found it hard to make the Crystal Effects seal, but that's just my messy style. Once I added the crimped cylinder of Old Olive in the center, it all worked out just fine. I used the Pennant Punch for the triangles, but free cut my mouth all my own.
Next, the Haunted House:
My last feature today is the Birdhouse. As I wrote in my blog hop post, I was inspired by the beautiful papers in the Frostwood Lodge Suite.
The roof was made by layering scalloped pieces of the birchbark paper. The roof looked a little bare, so I added a quilled flower. I then used more red Baker's Twine to make a hanger. A cute, but rather easy Christmas ornament.
Remember, I'll explain the gingerbread house on Wednesday. Until then,
