Challenge #18 - Quirky Home Sweet Home.

Hi everyone! Here's Kemly! 

We have a new challenge in Quirky Crafts Challenges!

Our theme challenge is: 

We want to see in your projects everything about your house or your dream house.
For example: a nice house, a window with flowers, in front of a beautiful house , a warm room, the warmth of home. Everything that reminds us of our home.

 Our Sponsor for this challenge is:


Our sponsor has generously provided two file sets for the Design Team 

and the Guest Designer to showcase, and three wonderful prizes too. 

Files sets come in several formats and can be used in various creative options, you can use them on electronic cutting machines or print and cut by hand.

The prizes are:

1st Prize: 3 sets from The Cutting Café store. 

2nd Prize: 2 sets from The Cutting Café store. 

3rd Prize: 1 set from The Cutting Café store.  

For some inspiration you share our projects:



Martha made such a cute little house full of love using the 3d Houses file set, look at those roof tiles. We love it Martha!


For me the perfect house is full of windows, light and air, so for my project I choose "Window Sill Shaped Card" cutting files, provided by our generous sponsor.

 For my project I made a WINDOW SILL SHAPED with many colorful flowers, thanks to our sponsor THE CUTTING CAFE

To my project I used 3D House Set. 
I made  a little house of dreams, full of flowers and some details with pink crystals representing small candies, such as sweet  should be a home .

For this week, I chose the 3D House file, from our amazing sponsor The Cutting Cafe. Come to my blog for more detail.

Cazzy will be along later - once she has mastered her new machine! Well that took a little longer than I hoped, but here I am!
Here it is at last, and probably could be better but not bad for a start. I made the smallest house from 3d Houses, and didn't make it open. I've added mosaic for the path, little flowers and dots of pink Liquid Pearls. I added lace round the box base and ric rac to the house.

Side view....

...back view with "gravel" path. the ric rac isn't quite right, looks worse now I see the photo!

To see who won the last challenge see the previous post below this one.
