A Shabby little Cottage For Me











After seeing Katie's amazing little Christmas cottages here and her video tutorial, I knew that I would have to get me one too! So off to Point Loma to the sweetest paperie ever-Paper Tales and I bought the middle sized house. After I saw how time consuming Katie's roof was ( she used a scalloped border punch and patiently figured out where to place her scallops around the roofs gables) I decided to drown my roof in sparkly pink glitter and I do love it so much. The best thing that I learned from Katie was to apply the paper onto each side of the house and then stick a light source into the house to see where to use a craft knife to cut the windows and door out. In a million years I would not have figured that one out on my own! Thanks Katie! If you check out her blog you will easily understand why I want to be her when I grow up!
