Home Made



December 1st, wow! Sorry it's been so long... Thanks for all the nice comments and well wishes for the craft fair. I enjoyed it and sold quite a bit! I've been working on lots of different things, here's a house I made with the Home Made stamp set and template. These little houses are so fun to create.



I tried to go for a Christmas look for this one and used bits and pieces from other stamp sets, like Believe and Home for the Holidays. I also added Icicle Stickles and other glitter to the roof to look like snow, which I adhered with a spray adhesive (one coat before the glitter and one coat after to seal in place). The glitter is so pretty!

Thanks for looking!
Melissa

So cute. Hey, do you have examples of gift card holders that you might be selling this Christmas? I know someone (me) who is interested.

Beautiful home. Thanks too for the tip on spraying with adhesive after applying the glitter. This home is on my list to sent to family with little stuff tucked away inside. My goal is to get it accomplished before next week!
