Halloween Houses

It is only very recently that I have acquired a die/emboss machine. Mr Pixie gave me a Sizzix Big Shot for my birthday. While I am a HUGE fan of doing things the old fashioned way (you definitely DO NOT need fancy equipment for crafting) I do sort of feel like a big kid now that I have one of these cool kid toys.

Some my very first dies? These super cute Movers & Shapers House and Window dies.


Here I've used Graphic 45's An Eerie Tale to make a couple of very sweet Halloween houses but I'm looking forward to making loads of papery cottages. This duo will sit on my mantle with faux tea lights flickering inside, but I'm forecasting some gorgeous Christmas houses in my future!

Here's the product list for this sweet duo:
Movers & Shapers House and Window dies
An Eerie Tale 6x6 Solids & Patterns Pad
Copper Zig Zag Dresden Borders
Black Mini Paper Blooms
Mini Red Pip Berry Garland
Tiny Green Leaf Garland
An Eerie Tale Banners
Large Game Spinners
Small Ceramic Horned Owl Bead
Thin Looped Dresden Borders - Black
