Time for Christmas

It’s getting closer and closer 🙂 And I for one am like a child – I can’t wait.

Talking about Christmas in all it’s glory, glitter and coziness ❤

One of my new Christmas decorations is the Gingerbread House Clock from Bird’s Christmastime SVG Collection:

The house itself is made from AC Cardstock in Caramel and decorated with White Glitter Paper from Best Creation and pink/rose colored POW Glitter paper from AC. The base is made from White AC Cardstock and the panels are patterned paper from My Minds Eye “Colorful Christmas”. The vellum is from a local craft store and is patterned with white swirls.

I embellished with different sizes of white glitter domes and painted the second hand with a white sharpie and rose colored Stickles glue.

As I was thinking it would be awesome to tell time at night also, I cut out the numbers on the watch through all the layers and added some vellum behind – works like a charm 😉

Love this Gingerbread House Clock. It’s tick tock’ing away in my living room and is a gorgeous addition to all my other luminary Christmas Decorations.

Thanks for stopping by today – I’ll be back soon with another Christmas project 😉

 

Christmas Is Nigh…..

….or at least Dec. 1st. is coming up real fast! Therefore I decided to make the gorgeous Gingerbread House Advent Calendar from Bird’s cute Countdown to Christmas SVG Collection

As you properbly know, I love color and I just had to add some to the Gingerbread House. So I decided to use the “Milk & Cookies” Collection from Doodlebug Design and as I was having trouble deciding which of the papers to use, the solution fell literally in my lab – the collection has a paper with all the countdown numbers on it 😀 How lucky and easy is that????

The Gingerbread House itself is made from (hold on….) 25 pieces of brown AC Cardstock and 3 or 4 white pieces. I added some icy Stickles Glitter Glue to the roofs and the icicles. I used different colored glitter brads as handles and finally I inked all the drawers with a white ink pad to make the stand even more out.DSC_0018

I did also add a few Sugarplums Sprinkles also from Doodlebug on the front door of the House which happens to be the 24th – Christmas Night here in Denmark where we celebrate Christmas and not on the 25th 😉

The construction of this Countdown Gingerbread House is sheer genius and it’s very easy to put together even though it might take a night or two of you time as there are lots of pieces to assemble. Just remember to watch Bird’s tutorial video, which you find on the product page 🙂

Now this house could stand alone, but I still thought it needed a little extra something, so I made the Tree Luminaries from Bird’s Home for Christmas SVG Collection:

For these trees I also used the Milk & Cookies Collection from Doodlebug Design and added some Icy Stickles Glitter Glue dots in strategic places to give them more shine 😉 The trunks are made from AC Cardstock that I embossed with a basket patterned embossing folder and added some Bronze Age Metallique Wax from Prima to make the pattern stand out.

Here’s a picture of the House and trees together. I really hope you like this project – I am totally in love with it ❤

Scary Skull

 

Good Sunday Morning – thanks for joining me on the blog today 🙂

This week SVG Attic releashed a new kit called JGW Witches Gather. In this kit I found this totally awesome realistic shaped Skull. I just needed that for my Halloween decorations…..It’s so cool – don’t you think?

It’s made from AC Cardstock in Vanilla. I made some holes in his eyes, nose and ears so light can shine through and covered these with some printed vellum.

Just look how amazing he looks in the dark:

My light is a little too bright but I really love this look.

Thanks for stopping by today – remember I love to read all your comments ❤
