House-Shaped Replica Ornaments!

This will be my last Christmas blog post of the year!  You may recall the birdhouses and the house replica ornament I made for a friend or one of the many house-shaped cards or house-iversary baskets I have made for friends and clients, all from paper.  Well, today’s post is about that theme – house-shaped ornaments!

Last week I had fun delivering these house-shaped replicas of homes some of my favorite clients bought this year.  I have smudged the last name written above the door on the cream-colored house for privacy.  Inside of each little house is a photo of the family, attached in the center of the floor – kind of 3-D.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sizzix Big Shot BIGZ L Mini Milk Carton die-cut template in my Cuttlebug machine to make these ornaments and added flowers and little shrubs I free-form cut.  Each door and house looks as close as possible to the house I sold these clients.

Every buyer gets a house-shaped card that looks like their house (made using my Cricut Expression machine and the Wild Cards cartridge).  Because  this was delivered at the same time, I photographed them together.  Sometime I should showcase all of the paper house things I have made for my beloved clients!

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
