Gingerbread House Advent Calendar

...I do not know  as you, but I'm see that the time flies totally relentlessly for me.  Christmas is almost around the corner and I think the time is right for my project ... projects. Besides what I show you today I need four more -   equal (almost) !!!

It is a fantastically Advent calendar that I am completely abducted with it. You can do it in many versions or classic Gingerbread House. The great thing is that it is very simple ... although you need  a little more paper it certainly worth it.
Another thing which I like about it is its drawer and not just cut out, the doors, which are also ok, but sometimes they are tricky for kids when they are pressed into the inside.  So boxes - drawers are completely ideal. Because of that I decided to make a gift to my close ones this amazing Advent Calendar .

This beautiful Gingerbread House is from Bird's SVG's and you can find it here:

...I used pearl and ringstone  to open drawers...

...I have not changed anything except numbers on the drawers...

 I hope you like it. It is really amazing and I love it. Thank you for your visit and wish you creative and restful weekend...anta :-)

... welcome.  I come again with another Halloween project.

 I wanted to make skull, but you know...with a bit  "romantic" touch.

For making it I have used and put together several files from Birds Svg's.
I used: "Chilled to the bone "- skull where I delete stiches on mouth a "little bit"
"Eggstravagance" - Egg chocolate box - details (cones around of heart))
"Nature's bounty" - Seed pocket card ( flower "doily" on chin)
and lovely " Love Birds"  - which I used for this heart shaped box.

...and  freebie that I've found and I need to say that you can to choose from a tons of freebies is "Flourish 1 by Bird" ( around of "eyes"),
 Crown on head I did myself.

...I hope you like my project and inspired you. Thank you very much for your time and wish you relaxing and creative rest of weekend...anta :-)

Coffin Luminary

Welcome again.
Last week happened to me something unexpected. I was approached from the Birds craft and  I enjoyed 
"Design Team of Birds Svg's".
 It is wonderful that I'm  between these gifted creative girls and it is for me the great honor of choosing me . Thank you very much and I will try for the best.

So today, of course, it will be Halloween. I have to admit that I have never done coffin ...OMG... Even though Halloween is my favorite holiday, where we live, we don't celebrate so fantastically and completely as some where else  - except at our home LOL!
If I made for my boys a coffin, it would be - too much.
I think the time has come for us to overcome this barrier with this fantastic pattern at our home.
It have everything I like : is big, it's standing and lightening. 

                                                                 Creak 'n' Shriek

This new collection "Creak n Shriek" from Bird's Svg's is really amazing with so much posibilities...

 Few words about how I dit it, but be carefull with my English ...

First, I cut off all the pieces, except from the black side panelling (accents).
From the basic design library (e-cal), I chose a rectangle and made accents on the sides of the coffin. Then I cut them out from design paper.
I cut back panel  of the coffin out of dark brown paper and decorated with several golden brads and paper gears.

I cut one more time back side to use it for Inside backround of the coffin from design paper. 
I make double front " window". Inside with acetate and outside with wellum.

I cut out the skeleton. Her"skirt"is made from thin  turquise blue paper strap.   On the top of the turquise blue paper I glue a thin strap of black paper. I added a corsage and a hat that I decorated with feathers and flower. The veil on the hat is a piece of ribbon.

Paper I used is from G45

So, I hope you like it. I loved it. Thank you for your time have a nice and creative weekend...anta :-)
