Love makes a house a home...

I was writing this post and something weird happened, it deleted everything I wrote?!! anyway... I have been creating lots of Holiday cards lately, and shabby chic style stuff that I will show you soon... The first card is covered with Melissa Frances papers, and a K & Company pocket, chipboard and felt stars , Tip: you can cut your own felt/chipboard embellishments with the cuttlebug.
Next my all time favorite project Paper mache houses, I found these houses at Michael's a long time ago, and now I do not see them anymore at the store :(. I use lots of Melissa Frances papers, rub ons, embellies, glitter, silk flowers, buttons etc.... If you want to make a project similar to this you can buy this workshop/class here
I created also a matching card set that comes inside the paper mache house, it can be such a perfect gift for the next holidays... the complete set is available at my Etsy shop ;)
Thanks so much for your sweet comments! have a nice and creative day! :)

LOVE this card ! :)
Next another card using most of the same materials I use on the "Harvest" card, the Vintage sticker is from Melissa Frances.
And of course one sweet Halloween card created with More "old" paper and that Creative Imaginations lace paper that I LOVE! a Tattered Angels chipboard frame covered with black glitter, vintage image, and stamp from Melissa Frances.
