Papertrey Ink Paper Houses Challenge


Ever since I saw that this month's Papertrey Ink blog hop was a little paper house challenge, I wanted to play!  Little houses just are the happiest of things!  I thought that I would run out of time, but I had a little while to play after work and before the girls came home from school.  I am really glad I didn't look at everyone's entries first 'cause I would have backed out, heee! There are some amazing ones to see!!

I used a template dated 2009 that I had copied from Brenda Quintana's blog.  The roof is stamped with images from the new Confetti Garland Borders and embossed with white powder.  The edges are inked with Fresh Snow ink.


The tag is made with the Tiny Tags stamps set and dies.  The paper is a woodgrain sheet from A Muse Studio.


It was so much fun to make this teeny lopsided house :).  I can't wait to visit all of the other little paper houses in the neighborhood!  Thanks for stopping by today!

Kelly. Your little house has this really neat Nordic feel to it. Can't you just see a little gnome emerging from it? I love the use of the the red and white confetti garlands on the roof. I usually don't go for "wood grained", but that paper for the house walls is perfect.

You are a marvel. I can't imagine how you folks with jobs and families, manage to pull off such fabulous creations. (Your Waltzing Mouse creations are among my favorites. You really make the most of Claire's Christmas sets.)

Here's wishing you a fabulous Thanksgiving and a bit of time to recharge your battery.

Kelly, I think your teeny adorable lopsided house and my teeny flimsy doodled house could start a whole lopsided flimsy town and people would love to live there!! Happy Thanksgiving!! Hugs, Darnell

Kelly, congrats on your PTI win with this adorably SWEET little house! I just realized we both had a similar idea!

Two items I enjoy using quite frequently on my creations, are ribbon & the Tiny Tags die. AND you've used them SO beautifully!
