Sweet Holiday Inspirations


Hello and welcome to the second group post for the October  Papertrey Ink  Release! The new products you are seeing here will be available in the store at Papertrey Ink on October 15th at 10:00 EST!

Today I am sharing my little gingerbread house that I created with Betsy's newest addition to the Tiny Town series, Tiny Town: Gingerbread along with Tiny Town: Holiday Yard! I was so excited about this! I love little houses and gingerbread ones are my favorite! These dies have all the little details you need to turn your basic Tiny Town House into a fun and festive Holiday decoration! 





Oh my goodness isn't that darling! I just love the way it turned out! I cut the basic house out of Cocoa Bean card stock and the roof out of Classic Kraft. I used a strip of Pure Poppy + White striped paper to go around the bottom of the house.



The green garland comes with the Holiday Yard dies and they fit the fence, but I thought the house needed a little bit of greenery too. I also added the wreath on the door. 


The trees from the Holiday Yard dies are flat, but I cut four each of the small and the larger one and scored them down the center, then glued them all together to create a 3 dimensional tree.


I love the candy canes and the little peppermint candies! They add just the perfect touch!



Now that I have one of these under my belt, I want to make several more to add to my little Christmas village! My mind is already churning with ideas for different colors and ways to use these fun new dies!





DIES: Tiny Town: Basics, Tiny Town: Gingerbread, Tiny Town: Holiday Yard
PAPER: Stamper’s Select White, Classic Kraft, Cocoa Bean, Pure Poppy, New Leaf

  5. Hi Kay and Welcome back! I, (along with everyone else I'm sure) missed you! I hope your vacation will give your family, memories and stories you'll share for a lifetime. As for me, I'm very grateful that my family and friends all survived Hurricane Matthew and so did my craft room. WHEW! My prayers go out to those who are still dealing with the fallout. This morning has been fun, (& therapeutic) reading your blog and oohing and aahing at your always beautiful creations. I LOVE your watercolor tags and sweet gingerbread house. Thanks as always, for sharing and welcome home! :)

  15. Hi Kay,

    Are you hearing my squeals and screams all the way to your house???
    Holy Mantecadito!!!-Puerto Rican YUMMY version of thumbprint cookies-
    Your rendition is DELICIOUS and Adorable! Wait I hear another word coming up...... where it comes......ADORALICIOUS!!! UFF! that took a lot of hard labor on my part!
    I just came from Betsy's blog and I commented that it was her fault for my finances being askew, but since I am an ecumenical blamer, you my darling friend are going to carry the responsibility on your shoulders also! And I say it with all the love that I have in my heart for you! Who needs enemies when you have friends as me....right?
    Love you to pieces!!!

    Cariños,
    María Alba
