A Little Christmas Cheer to End the Year

Hi Everyone! Yes, yes, I know Christmas is over. Thing is, I have had these pics on my camera for a few weeks and haven't had time to post. So here it all is!

As I have been saying and saying, I want to make a Christmas village. So I made another house to go into it. It doesn't fit the same theme of papers as my house from last year, but I figured it was how all the houses will end up being anyway. As much as I love the one I made the one I made last year, I LOVE this one even more!

Here are the pics:

I am totally in love with picnik. It's so easy to use, it's free and it's tons of fun. As you can tell from the pictures, I was playing around with adding the words to my photos. Not to mention this paper from Crate Paper makes me want to use the 1960s photo edit to every picture of projects made with it! 

Here are all the supplies used to make the house:

Deco Podge House - Hobby Lobby {mid size}
Patterned Paper - Crate Paper
Cardstock - Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip {used for reindeer}
Mini Ornaments, Bells and Lights - Michael's Crafts
Mini Jingle Bells - Stampin' Up!
Baker's Twine - my stash
Ribbon - Stampin' Up, Michael's
Cricut Cartridges - Cindy Loo {reindeer reins, flourish below roof}, Christmas Cheer {sleigh, reindeer, wreath}, Forever Young {flower on Santa's sleigh}
Pre-made Cutouts - Crate Paper {Santa and Tree}
Jewels and Half Pearls - Stampin' Up!, Reflections; Doodlebug Designs
Border Punches - Stampin' Up!, Martha Stewart
Punch - EK Success {corner rounder to make large scallop trim below roof}
Glues - Mod Podge, Crystal Effects, glue gun

Well, I hope everyone had a great Christmas! We sure did. I asked Peyton what her favorite present was and she said, "Everything Mom. I love everything!" It made my Christmas for sure.

Happy New Year!
