The LOVE Shack

I finally finished my big project! Yay me! I saw this project when a friend of mine showed me a gift she'd rec'd from another friend of hers. It was so stinking cute that I had to copy it and tweak it a bit. Hers was a snow shack with a snowman....and there are other things this could be turned into, but with Valentine's Day on the horizon I made it into the Love Shack......
OMG! Isn't this so stinking cute??? It's a house full of little cards and envelopes. What a great gift and it is just the cutest thing. The front opens up to reveal the cards inside. Here's a shot of the cards with matching envelopes.

The cards are 4 x 4 with a invitation envelope that was cut down to fit the card and I added a matching piece of dsp (designer series paper) to create the flap.
I tried to keep it simple. The fun part was making the cards fit the one sheet wonder framework. It's actually a  4 -1/2 sheet wonder for all the cards and patterns, then the bling or embellishments. It took me awhile to re-create from the sample I had, but I did it and I am offering this as a class this month. The class will be held on Friday the 14th, from 6-9pm. The cost will be $15. Please contact me to reserve your spot today! The patterns on the cards may change but the shack will be the same.  This is going to be one fun class and I look forward to sharing it with my crazy lady stampers. 
Please let me know if you are interested in purchasing a kit. Thanks for stopping by, feel free to leave a comment. 
Happy Stamping!

How cute, Tina! Do you still need the card photos? I'm sorry I haven't done that yet.

Hi Jen! Yes, I could use them for templates on piecing the cards together. Whenever you get a chance. When do you want to come make one??
