View Full Version : Build a Gingerbread House - Day 4

07-26-2012, 02:29 PM
Oh, wow, I love how creative you all are - seriously, all those gingerbread houses, villas, castles... they're stunning!!!:)):XX

Today I have two big downloads for you - it's a small collection of backgrounds and cardstock from a couple of my (aka deliscraps) kits, that I thought would fit with theme and color.

Your task for today: Add some background or clip some papers to windows or other shapes (yes, you may use shapes I did not provide). You may sit back and relax today, if you do not want to add any papers to your project.
If you have special wishes for things that should be included in the last download tomorrow, post here in this thread, I will try to fulfill your wishes... (no guarantee though, I know I won't do a gingerbread Ferrari for example, lol)

Save your work and post it in the Christmas in July gallery (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/g1399-christmas-in-july.html) and leave a link here in this thread so we all can admire your work!

Here are your links: Day 4 Part 1 (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/ProgScraps/Gingerbread/Build-a-Gingerbreadhouse%20Day4.zip) and Day 4 Part 2
See you tomorrow - keep me in awe with your creativity! 8D

Been dying until I could add the background paper to this page. Had it all picked out and hoped the instructions would allow for it. It is a beautiful paper stack from Christmas in Gold Bundled set by Feli and LouCee Designs. All of the stuff shown in the windows and doors are decorations I had up at my house this last Christmas.

Can't wait to put the finishing touches on it along with the title and journaling. Great challenge...

What a fun challenge. I am home nursing a bad back and this was a perfect way to distract me. Thank you

Hey Min! I would love to see a Christmas tree or star or something... I need decorations next to my house. LOL If you don't have anything like that, I can grab from other kits.

Here is day 4 a little late. Couldn't believe it, but I forgot to save and did something weird and lost a lot of work. I was tired after a day with 2 year old granddaughter, so waited until today to work on it.

The scary part is that I dreamt my computer died: hope it's not prophetic as it is only 6 months old.

What a fun progressive scrap! I missed it, being off on a trip for most of this past week, till I saw the notice in the newsletter. So I did my steps one at a time and posted Day 1 through Day 4 all on one page. I'll do the last step for the final layout later today. Thanks so much for all the goodies, Min!
