Well without further ado Here is my project for
As for hoarding Christmas items, I doooo. Lol I love making wreaths or arrangements in my home or for any type of holiday. And I hate to admit it but besides cardmaking or scrapbook stuff, I hoard flowers, these birdhouses, birds and other floral decorating items. I have two tubs full of poinsettias, garland, tree branches with holly and berries and other floral decor items. I just can not help myself, I know these things go on sale after the holiday and I buy more cause I just know I will use one day. Right?? I know you all are thinking the same thing when you see something, "One Day....I will use this". Lol :D
For this bird house I dabbed around it with TH Distress Vintage photo ink then used hot glue to adhere all my birds, tree branches, berries and pine cones on. I also hung one of TH wreaths around the hole of the bird house and used peeled paint to color it green. The snow is Snowtex , I love using this item, it is one of my fav's now. :D
A stamp set I used (was a free stamp set last year from a magazine no name), embossed the sentiment with gold powder and stamped the holly garland twice.
Plus you can see the little angle I stamped earlier and rubbed off and then dabbed vintage photo around it so it would show.
From my stash - Floral items are from the Dollar General Store but can be found at Michaels & JoAnn stores as well. Red ribbon from stash
Snowtex for the snow around the bird house.
