The House to house the houses

This is my house to house my houses!!!! The above photo is the back & sides, the photo below is the side & front door. This the flat version, keep scrolling down & you will see the house when it has been constructed.

This is the right hand side.

The left hand side

The front door.

The back.
Well this looks like the backyard dunny only prettier!
This is a first. I cut the walls, floor & roof from mat board. Painted Watercolour paper with Golden paints. Put them through the cuttlebug. I joined the sides & back with extra tacky jac paper then put the embossed papers on, so it did two jobs, holding the building together & attaching the papers.
I used Grungeboard for hinges. Then I used various die cuts to decorate the house.


  1. What a brilliant idea! And one I may be copying.

    It's a work of art in it's own right, and would look great sat on a coffee table or displaed on a shelf.

  2. Gorgeous!!! I love the color and the texture. Thank you so much for posting it on your blog for all of us to see.

  3. Gorgeous Anne, I'm sure that it will inspire many more of the girls to use this idea for their house pages.



  4. G'day Anne,
    How marvellous, you have done a fabulous job & I see you have used that wonderful red combo like on your Paris house. Also love the address Memory Lane #56 sounds a bit significant... thanks for the inspiration ... OOroo ... Bethel

  5. This looks great and as Carol said the colour and texture looks wonderful. Thanks for giving us inspiration on how to store our Houses.

  6. Oh, what a brilliant idea - I love the bright red colour, it reminds me of one of those old fashioned pillar post boxes. Gorgeous.

  7. What an awesome project. Nola asked me to ask you what this golden paint was and where I could get it when I am up in Sydney next week or so
