Paper, Houses, Cameo... What a combination!!!

So, I have been a busy bee. I am preparing for a vendor event on the 1st, that I was just asked to do.. But, at the same time Have been having an itch for some more Cameo play time. We all know my love of paper and my cameo.. Not to mention, my new love of 3D houses!!!! Whelp, I still have some embellishing to finish.. But, just had to share my latest paper craft...

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and I just know this is going to a perfect addition to the decorations. 

I am still figuring out how I want to dress this beauty up and when I do, I will share the update. In the mean time, I thought you would like to see it side by side with the Scaredy Cat haunted house I did a few weeks ago... Pretty sure, I will be doing both again for my Christmas village.

AND... Even though these following pictures do not do them justice.. They light up!!!!

Both houses were made using Close to My Heart paper lines. The haunted house was named after that line, Scaredy Cat. While the Victorian was made using the 'Pathfinding' paper pack. Don't forget, these were made using my FABULOUS Silhouette Cameo and the 'Maple Manor' svg kit from

I hope that these provided a little bit of inspiration to get into your crafting goodies. The holidays are right around the corner.. So much to make.. so little time to finish :-) But, hey.... That's okay.... even if we are late.. we can enjoy them next year :-)

As always.. Until next time...

I LOVE being crafty and using SvgCuts!!!

It has been a little while since I have been crafty.. Just for myself..
While I do enjoy creating cards for my card clubs and workshops.. Sometimes, it is nice to sit and do something I WANT to do for myself...
Y'all know how much I LOVE SvgCuts and share their giveaways and new kit announcements... I can't help but share things that I LOVE and truly enjoy. So, the fact that I can combine two of my LOVES.. Close to My Heart and SvgCuts.. is such a joy...
I have been determined to make the haunted house from SvgCuts' Haunted Forest kit for quite some time. Well, yesterday I gave to myself... I did not worry about card clubs, workshops, etc... I just played with my Silhouette Cameo and CTMH papers (Scaredy Cat)...
I hope you enjoy the product of my 'playtime'.

I still have some embellishing to work on, but I just had to share. I am getting ready to make the Mansion from their 'Maple Manor' kit...
If you want to know more or shop from their HUGE selection of Svg kits... Just click the link on the 'RIGHT' side of my page. It will take you there. In all of my searching for svg files on the internet, they have the BEST files. Mary and Leo go out of their way to bring these creative files and their customer service is second to none....
LOL, I sound like an advertiser, but I can't help but share companies that truly care about what they do and what they provide....
Anywho, I hope you enjoyed my crafty project and hope you check back again. I plan to be posting the Mansion in the next week. Oh, did I mention the mansion is BIGGER that this adorable house? Much BIGGER...

Until next time...

Happy Crafting!!!
