This post connects two people whose blog's I visit regularly and whose work I admire (and aspire to create similar results.)
I designed a house shaped box after seeing a chipboard house on Lauren Meader's blog that she altered. Lauren's Timeless Templates are great and I suddenly wondered if I could make a template to make a paper house.
Well I designed it on my computer and then made it up using white cardstock to test my design. Great it worked! And then it sat on my desk for about three and a half weeks, undecorated!
On to the second blog connection, Kristina Werner. I visit regularly and look at her Color Inspiration challenges and love the combinations, but I don't join in. Usually because I just don't have the time. This week however, I made time. I took my poor undecorated house and gave it a makeover. I also made a card that will go into the box (with some buddies of course) to create a nice gift for my Aunt who has just moved into a new house.
Anyway here are some pics. Thanks for looking : ) Estaziasupplies: Really Rust, More Mustard (Stampin Up) White and Grey cardstock
