This year I am planning to create more scrapbook pages than in the previous on. So today I am starting off my resolution early with this scrapbook page I created for Crafter's Companion.
The gorgeous bear holding the poinsettia flower is from the Popcorn the Bear With Love stamp set. You can tell from the 12 x 12 scrapbook page how large this stamp is. I used Double Sided Adhesive Foam Squares so that he would "pop" off the page. Here's a close up of Popcorn before I added him to my layout.
I was browsing the internet a couple of days ago and saw a new "House Rules" challenge at over Simon Says Stamp and Show. The darling three-dimensional houses the DT made inspired me to put together and alter a Doodlebug Chipboard house out that I've had in my stash for a few years. Over the last couple of days I took a break from Christmas cards and made this Vintage mini house.
I used the DCWV World Traveler and Rustic stacks for the outside of the house, while the vintage ladies and butterfly sticker are from Graphic 45's A Ladies' Diary collection. The flowers are from Petaloo and the lace trim is from Webster's. I outlined the door and house trim with Gold Stickles. Lara was very interested in who I was making the house for. She had a big smile when I gave it to her when I finished it. (I finished it during her nap and she's got the bed head look going on.)
