spellbinder christmas ornaments

I havent update blog for a long time as we have all been busy with christmas schedules and making things ahead of time, i have just completed 3 things that i am really happy with and i shall upload the photos. and doing lots of cards with spellbinders nestabilities and pendants, i just love them. first i did a Halloween house made from a ply kit for the window display at Paper Trenz, complete with lights and a spooky cackle box that was set off when you clapped your hands. this was so succesful i decided to do a christmas themed one as well. so did a lot of my scrapbook friends, before i could begin to think 4 of us were making christmas houses at my workshop at home. we had a great amount of fun finding furniture and things to put in them. and it is a work in progress as i will add things as i find them. we have painted and papered our houses and applied texture paste and lots of pearl paint and glitter. to complete the frosty look. then i wanted the inside to look warming and homey, like santas house would look... sorry the pics are side on i forgot to rotate them first!! halloween house

santa's house

this year i designed and completed a sample for my gingerbread house, which i have been working on for some time. if you want a kit to make the gingerbread house simply contact paper trenz as we have them for sale, they are cut for us by the House of Scrapbooking.

my gingerbread house
i loved the kaiser bird house so much i have adapted it to christmas and used it as a card holder. this will be one of our classes at Paper Trenz

Also for our schedule i have done a sample of the Kaiser Advent calender, i already have 3 calendars that i have done, so i wasnt sure about doing yet another, but i must say it was really easy to do and i love the effect. i used lots of bling and glitter...and it will fit a ferro rocher just nicely in each box, shame it is only one though, oh well i will have to eat it, not the kids!!!

also this year i have designed a patty cake box that is die cut and can be purchased from Paper Trenz, to alter and ink as desired. the top of the box is the same size as the carl punch circle and these cut cup cakes can be made for weddings or parties, i am doing some as christmas puddings for christmas. if you like the gingerbread house or the patty cakes, just contact me at Paper Trenz at wynnum.. or Desk top papers website
