Gingerbread House

Hello! Today, as promised, I have my first "official" Lori Whitlock design team project to share with you.
For my project, I used the new Gingerbread House that Lori created. This house is incredible. Lori thought of everything....It literally takes 10 minutes to put together and then all you have to do is have fun and decorate it :) The file also comes with a gingerbread man, candy canes, a wreath, tree, candy, etc. ---Tons of stuff to decorate your house AND to use on other Christmas projects!

I love it....what a fun idea this would be to print out for the kids and decorate this instead of a candy one--->it lasts a lot longer and it is actually more fun!

Here is my house (I included lots of pictures so you could see it from lots of angles): I used patterned paper from two different Echo Park collections to make the house: Season's Greetings and Holly Jolly. The tree, gingerbread man and candy canes and candy are just some of the darling designs that come with the gingerbread house file.

I cut some felt for the roof and under the windows for some "snow." I used some stickers from Season's Greetings collection (Echo Park), like the string of ornaments, to further decorate the house. The gift and Merry Christmas sentiment are from Holly Jolly (Echo Park).

Here are a few more close up pictures:






This was such a fun project to create. I love how easy it was. If you have not already, give her 3D files a try...you will not believe how well-designed they are :)

Supplies--Gingerbread house *** file (Lori Whitlock for Silhouette); Patterned paper- Holly Jolly, Season's Greetings (Echo Park paper); adhesive pearls (Recollections, Michael's); black pearl (Want2Scrap); white felt (Papertrey Ink); cardstock- Kraft, chocolate (SU!); button; stickers- element stickers- Holly Jolly, Season's Greetings (Echo Park Paper); ink- Tea dye distress ink (Ranger); white gel pen (Ranger).

***Files can also be purchased in Silhouette store if you need .studio files!!

My fellow design team member Corri has a fabulous wreath on her blog today! Check it out...it is wonderful!

Hope you like this project!!! Thanks for stopping by today!

I wrote about Lori's beautiful house last week on the Silhouette Plus forum (now over 1400 members strong)! Digital cutters are the only way to go! Lori's a favorite of mine, and I will be making her wonderful gingerbread house soon!

Christy Farneth-Kerr said...

Oh wow !! Very fun :)

listgirl said...

I love your project, it looks gorgeous! Did you cut the felt by hand? It's my understanding that the Silhouette won't cut felt, but I do have some PTI felt too... just wondering...

Lynette said...

So very, very cool and pretty, Cammie! I do think I would like doing that better than a candy one - not as messy!

Joanne (jojot) said...

carole (TruCarMa) said...

Eeek! How adorable is this?! I need it, especially since I just got a new Silhouette Cameo... FUN stuff, Camster! :)

Sue Alger said...

Love your gingerbread house. Did you use EP digital paper? I think I might just have to try this with my grandkids. Such a fun project.

Starla said...

CUTE!!
But, I do have a complaint with you: all your fabulous creations are turning in my noggin and I have been doing research on the Silhoutte Cameo.
GF....the Silhouette was NOT on my Wish LIST! I NEED a new camera! NOT a cutting machine!!
I need to work more hours, sigh.
LOL

This is amazing! I still have a blank paper house from Stampin' Up I got a little while back, hoping to make a gingerbread house out of it sometime before Christmas! I love what you did with the roof, especially!

Susan said...

Wow Cammie -- this looks like such a fun project to do! I can see why you are enjoying your Silhouette so much. I'll have to put it on my wish list!

listgirl said...

Thanks for coming to my blog and answering my question about the white felt snow cutting! That's really nice of you and I really appreciate it. I love your beautiful creations and now I know you're a fellow runner! I'm now following your blog in my Google Reader. :)

Linda Beeson said...

Fabulous. I need to figure out the files you used for this really adorable creation.

I love this and will be making it soon for sure! It looks like the perfect craft holiday project for my 11 year old daughter and me to work on together!

Dana Marie said...

You did an amazing job! Now I want to make one! One question, though: Did you use a Silhouette Cameo or can it be made that size using a Silhouette SD? Thanks!
