Nesting for an Empty Nest - SOUS Diecut Challenge *House*

Hey there! Long time no see!

I had to take a few weeks off from my blog because I was in the midst of home renovations. Which turned out to be a very lucky coincidence because the theme for this week's Stuck On U Sketches die cut challenge was to use a house!

Paper: Jillibean Soup, Fancy Pants Designs, Studio Calico; Cricut Cart: Going Places;
Embellishments: Jillibean Soup, Echo Park, My Minds Eye, Fancy Pants; Misc: Studio Calico
date stamp, unknown feathers, unknown floss, Fancy Pants button, Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher

Since my photos were quite busy, I wanted to keep my layout quite simple. And I thought about doing something a bit fancier with the house (I toyed with the idea of using my corrugator, cutting it from chipboard, etc), but in the end, I liked the simple little house beside the journaling. The file is from Going Places, but I didn't like the door in the image. So, using Design Studio, I covered it up with a rectangle from the same cartridge and added a little rectangle for a window. Then I stretched it out to fit the journaling. Easy peasy!

So now it's your turn!  Upload your creation to the SOUS blog using a handmade diecut of a house and you will be entered to win a wonderful prize by this month's sponsor Creative Embellishments!
