  1. I'm not sure if my other comment posted because I'm technically illiteratešŸ˜œ
    I'm so excited to find your blog-I've just recently gotten the Tim Holtz village dies and I've kind of gotten obsessed with house making. Will be following along, as your projects are amazing!

  2. Lucy...these books are awesome and so it your tutorial! You did an amazing job on these! You are very very creative and your work is always amazing!

  3. Fabulous book-houses... the spooky weathered boards on the first one are so cool.

  4. Love the books you have made and they do make wonderful bases for your houses. Thanks for all the tips and thanks for joining us at Stamps and Stencils.

  5. Great tutorial Lucy. You make it seem so easy. I love your books!

  6. Lovely and detailed technique! I absolutely applaud all of your little houses! Each is so different and I would love in anyone of the houses! The Happy Halloween sentiment on the side of the book is from Tim Holtz?

    You are correct, I do hats, you do houses! Now I am thinking of a hat with a house on it!

  7. Yes, the Happy Halloween sentiment on the book is a Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous stamp embossed in princess gold. It's from a set called "Apothecary" CMS138. A hat with a house on it would be really fun. I'd like to see that.

  8. brilliant make - I love all of your ideas and tips - thanks for joining us at stamps and stencils this month! Hugs rachel x

  9. Lucy, I really enjoyed reading your process. The drawer in the book was such a great idea! You are so clever and creative! I hoard good boxes and need to put them to better use. You've inspired me! Hugs, Autumn
