Home for the Holidays!

"There's no place like home for the holidays!" This project reminds me of that Christmas song. Both of my daughters who live out of state :( are moving into new homes :). My youngest moved last week and my oldest is in the process of building hers. Exciting times for both of them. A miniature house
filled with goodies will be the perfect "housewarming" gift for each of them. I was literally in LOVE when I saw this newest template at Papertrey Ink! Then I just had to purchase the matching accessory stamps for the windows and doors. 
I used MS punches to add details like the fence, roof trim. and pine boughs. I found some glitter CS at Walmart that feels like marshmallow Peeps! It is so soft, and I made roofs for some of the houses out of that. I didn't stop with only three houses. I have made fourteen so far, and I still have some more to go. They make great gift boxes for friends and family this holiday season.
I am having so much fun making these cute little houses! Each one is different. I can't wait to give them as gifts!


  1. Wow ! Your little houses are absolutely GORGEOUS ! You are so clever ! They are really beautiful, real works of art... I can't believe you have made 14 !!! The recipients are going to be over the moon ! Wonderful job Cat !

  2. Hey Cat! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. I can't believe we're onto Christmas now. Yikes!

    I LOVE your little houses. I got that template and stamp set, too, but haven't had time to play... yet!


  3. These are SO much fun, Cat!!! I love them, and oh my goodness, I can't believe you have made 14 of them! FOURTEEN???!!! Wowzers, you are my hero! Congrats to your girls on their new places! Maybe you can go visit and help them settle in!

  4. I'm glad you're back! These are fantastic. We should make these rather than the gingerbread houses!
