DIY holiday houses are such fun projects to make and decorate with this time of year. Today we have another project from design team member Rachel McAffee to share with you.
She says: I covered a chipboard house kit with pink and vanilla striped Sweet Life paper and added a bit of silver glitter around the windows and door. I then placed the mini house on top of a paper mache treat box and added pink tissue around the base of the box. I embellished the house with a mini flag, banner and a pink bottle brush tree.
It's begining to look a lot like Christmas! We have an adorable Christmas project from DT member Rachel McAfee to share with you today.
She says: For this project I used the vintage inspired "A Merry Christmas" pattern paper. I simply painted a wood base and block with cream paint, then cut out a square of paper to fit the block. I then embellished the top of the stand with pleated satin ribbon, a mini ornament and placed a couple bottle brush trees at the bottom.

We always love seeing projects that our customers make using our product lines, and this display piece using our "The Sweet Life" collection (designed by the talented duo of Everyday is a Holiday) made us so happy when it landed in our inbox.
Russian paper crafter Elya used a hoop and fabric for her base, then layered our paper products on top of that.

Design Team member Evgenia Petzer has an adorable card to give us creative inspiration as we head into the weekend. Evgenia used the "Classic Elegance" paper collection for this card. A few things to notice on this card, is how Evgenia used one of the photos from the "Adopted Ancestors (PA408)" patterned paper as the focal point of the card. Here's a peek at the full 12x12 sheet - it's double sided, so you get the photos on one side, and the black and white floral on the other side of the page.:
The other really cool thing on this card is how Evgenia stamped a white feather onto our blue vellum envelope and tag (GN554). The vellum envelopes and tags (all three colors) are currently on sale on the Melissa Frances website, so be sure to check them out!
Thanks for visiting us this week. We hope you have a great weekend!
