A little birdy told me...

You'd like to see some artwork!

As you may know, I was invited to teach at Close To My Heart's Annual Convention in Dallas, TX this past July.  For my assignment, I was given the absolutely GORGEOUS Avonlea Paper Pack.  I had such a great time coming up with all kinds of creative ways to use these beautiful new papers.  In the upcoming weeks I will be sharing lots and lots of artwork with this new paper pack.  So stay tuned for Avonlea overload!!

For your viewing pleasure today....
(I apologize for the poor picture DSLR is still out of commission) 
I have the cutest little birdhouse decorated with some of the new papers from the Avonlea Paper Pack.  This was one of my favorites out of all the art I created for teaching.  You've all seen the inexpensive little wooden birdhouses at your local craft store.  I picked this one up almost a year ago with so many good intentions.  But there it sat in my craft room....sad and neglected!  Until I got my hands on the new Avonlea Paper Pack and of corse the new Cricut ARTISTE cartridge!  It is decorated exclusively with Close to my Heart Products, with the exception of the acrylic paint and crackle medium I painted the house with.  
So here it is today....

Here you can see where I used our new scrumptious Colonial White Rosette Ribbon to embellish the roof.  Yes, the whole roof!!  You get 5 yards of this sweet ribbon in one package!! 

Last, but certainly not is a close up the of sweet little flowers I created.  

You can get these all products and more by shopping with me at 

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope to see you back again soon!

Beautiful birdhouse! I was absolutely awed by it at Extravaganza. Love the rose ribbon on the roof.
