Paper Craft Wednesday

I have two new things I would like to start sharing with you wonderful readers. One is a Paper Craft Wednesday. Each Wednesday I will share a paper craft with you including tips, techniques, and a tutorial. Eventually I would like everyone to link up their crafts to share with others. (I will share my other idea with you tomorrow).

So, to start of my new 'Paper Craft Wednesday' I am posting two items. One is the start of a chipboard 'house' book and the other is a Card.

The Chipboard house I created myself. I drew a template and cut it out of cardstock I had on hand. Cereal boxes would work great as well. 

Because I am a dork when it comes to anything technical, you will have to wait until my hubby gets home to get a free template of the house shape. So look for that soon! :)

I just love my birds! The door opens to show an image of a house that says 'Love is Spoken Here'. The paper and embellishment are from Amy Butler. I purchased these three yrs ago when I worked on a project for my parents who were moving across country.

The cover is done, now I just have 6-7 pgs to go. The theme of this book is "love is spoken here".

Now, here a is card I made today for a friend at church. Her birthday is this coming Sunday. The paper and embellishments are all Anna Griffin.

Here is the card. I kind of made this up as I went along. The top was just too empty for me so I had to add something. 

That's much better I think.
I hope you enjoyed that and I look forward to sharing something new with you tomorrow. Please let me know if this interests you. I would like to get a feel for how many people would benefit or enjoy Paper Craft Wednesday.

Wow. Those are really cute. The house is really great, you are one creative gal.

Now, for the envelops system. I got mine when I took the class, it's the super cheap no frills one. I think the other two are equally good, but I would personally like one of the cute designer ones...because I'm a girl. If they aren't on sale for ten bucks then wait. Dave usually puts all his merchandise on sale every holiday. He'll probably have a sale for St. Pats day and Easter. Unless you're desperate to have it now.
