Homemade House

Hello blog world!! I hope everybody is enjoying their weekend. I have spent the day buying new bits and bobs for our house and then cleaning, sorting and organising! I'm shattered now but it was well worth it.

In my last post I said I would share with you a PTI project I recently made. Well, here it is! My sister and her boyfriend moved into a new flat and I wanted to send them a house warming gift. I knew I had the perfect PTI stamp set and download. I have seen lots of examples of these by other people and couldn't wait to get started on my own. After a fiddle with printers (mine won't work properly, so a trip to my parents was called for - which then wouldn't take PTI cardstock) I finally set to work!

Here is my completed house and a little card to match

I'm really pleased how this turned out. I kept it quite simple but I can think of so many other ways to use this template and stamp set - I'm sure I'll be sharing more creations eventually! My sister was really surprised by the house - she is under instructions never to throw it away (if she gets bored of it I want it back)!

Well, I'm off now to snuggle up with my man and watch a DVD - Madagascar 2!! Ha! We love kids films! And Madagascar started off my obsession for Giraffes - looking forward to seeing Melman in action again!

Thanks for popping by and for any comments you may leave. Until next time....


  1. WOW! This is amazing! I'd find it hard to give away! Your coordinating card is fab too (I'm a sucker for birdies ;D)
    Hope you have a fab weekend!

  2. These are absolutely gorgeous Gem, love them both! I'd like to live in a house like that! lol. Love the card you have made to match, great idea combining the two stamp sets! Bet you were pleased with how they turned out and that your sis was over the moon with them.
