Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to look at my creations...I love making memories that I can share with my family and friends....and especially my daughters. They are my inspirations for creating a lot of these layouts. I love taking everyday ordinary things and making them into beautiful altered art. My downfall is buying beautiful papers and not wanting to use them because they are too gorgeous. LOL. Please take the time to check out my crafts, follow my blog and maybe even scraplift them and make sure you let others know where you got the idea...Love to have new followers of my blog.

My 1st Village / Christmas gift!

Hello Everyone! I have not been on here for a dd and I had the swine flu over Thanksgiving..but now we are feeling better...still have the cough and I have had a sore throat but nothing really to complain about...anyway...I wanted to make something for my gram since I made my mom a vintage calendar...I saw a village done on the cricut board and I thought that would be a good I decided to make one...never did this before so be kind....

I used WW for the striped house cut @ 4 3/4"...added ms drippy goo punch for icicles and used 3d shiny paint on them...can't really see it..I added some webbing I had left over from Halloween to the chimney for smoke...

Santa and Reindeer cut @ 2 1/2" 4 times (to make it sturdy) added wire to hold it in place...cut with christmas / noel cart...

Red House I cut @ 3 1/4" then added lights (buttons from Michaels) , added corded ribbon , 3d shiny paint to look like snow....added some more webbing to this chimney also... doodled christmas trees in the front and back window...

Wreaths were cut with Noel cart @ 1 1/2" 3 of them

The church cut @ 4 1/4" with WW cart added ms branch punch and pearls...also banner cut @ .34" noel solutions cart...added ms drippy goo punch also...the 3d paint is not quite dry yet but wanted to share this.

The trees cut @ 4 1/4" with ww cart and added 3d white paint for snow...I cb with swissdots.

Snowman cut @ 3 1/2" with ww cart also...I also cb with swissdots...The snow on bottom is webbing but added silver embossing powder which gives it a shine like snow... it is just added to white shiny cardstock and then underneath is chipboard 12 X 12 sheet to make it sturdy.....hope you enjoy I had fun making it....Thanks for looking
