Maple Manor from SVGcuts.com

For those of you who use SVG files, I want to share a great one with you.  This is part of the Maple Manor SVG kit from SVGcuts.com.  They have a great how to video on the site that is a very useful tool for the actual assembly process.  you can find the KIT AND INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEO by clicking on this link. 


As this is my crafting journal of sorts (not that I update it often these days)  I wanted to share some photos of my finished project.  Most of the papers used in the creation of this project are from Close to my Heart.  If you are intersted in seeing more of the papers that CTMH has to offer please visit my site.  I used White CS, Crystal Blue CS, sweet leaf CS,  and some assorted CTMH papers for the flowers.  I also used Crystal Blue ink for inking up the edges.    I also used some glitter CS from my stash that I picked up at Joann (but I don't know the brand).  All of the flowers and leaves were cut using my cricut and the Close to my Heart Art Philosophy cartridge.  The small pots were cut using my Cameo and a 3D flower pot from the Cameo online store. 

Here is my assembled house before I added any additional decor. 

Step one- add an ungodly amount of bakers twine to the porch and up the front of the house.  Then add about 80 tiny roses.  These were cut at 1 inch, so they are quite small after they are quilled up. 

Step two- add leaves to the flowers.  I used two sizes they were cute at 1/4 inch and 1/2 inch.  I believe there are about 100 or so on here.

Step 3- make some teeny tiny pots.  these are about 1 inch high (tera cotta color CTMH paper- inked with chocolate CTMH ink).  Add a small amount of foam and moss to the pots.

Step 4- Make more TINY flowers for the pots.  These were cut at 1.5 inches, glued to toothpicks, and put into the pots. 

Thats about it, for the process...now to share a few detail shots and the finished product!  thanks for stopping by!

Embossed glitter paper inked with brown stazon ink - doesn't it look like a copper roof?  Oh and incase you missed it I also embossed the siding on the entire house.

Oh so tiny roses and leaves.

  6. I came across your blog when I did a Google search for this kit...I am about to cut my own for Halloween and I started getting worried it would take me all weekend to finish! You've done a beautiful job with yours...it really popped out from all the rest in the image search. So glad to see people using it for other holidays and seasons too.
