Beach Babe House

Hi everyone! I am back this week with a new project for Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team! I used Eileen’s newest diecut, House Ornament Diecut, from the Chapter 3 Collection and I went with a beach theme for my little house using the Tutti Frutti 6’x6″ Paper Pad and the Tutti Frutti Decorative Brads by My Mind’s Eye.

I started by cutting out two house diecuts from Mat Board with a Diecut Machine. With a pair of Scissors I cut one of the bottom flaps off since it won’t be needed. I adhered the house together according to directions on the packaging.

I added White Frost Metallic Lustre to the smaller Vignette Base and let dry while continuing to work on the beach house.

The little window tag from the house diecut I inked with what was leftover on my Art Dauber and I also cut the cross section out from the window. From the Tutti Frutti 6’x6″ Paper Pad I traced and cut out a swimmer on a float and adhered to the back of the window. I made sure the face showed through the window. 
From the same paper pad I cut and adhered patterned paper to the roof but before adhering I inked the edges of the roof with chalk ink. I fussy cut an assortment of flowers and leaves out and adhered to the side of the roof.
I cut three flowers out from the Tag and Pocket Bookmark Diecuts. I slightly crumpled all three flowers and then shaped the edges with a Stylus. I added a brad from the Tutti Frutti Decorative Brads to the flower and adhered a bit of ribbon and yellow thread to the back before gluing to the roof.
I made a small bow with seam binding and covered the center of the bow with a brad from the Tutti Frutti Decorative Brads. I used a small amount of seam binding to tie the roof together and then adhered the bow on top of that. I added a small bow to the window tag and tied that around the seam binding bow. From the computer I printed the sentiment “Beach Babe” which I cut out and adhered to the tag. I fussy cut a small flower and leaves from the paper pad and added to the roof and the corner of the tag. I also added a couple small loops of thread to the corner of the tag.

I cut and adhered patterned paper from the same paper pad to the outside and bottom of the house. I adhered trim to both sides of the roof. I printed the Beach House sentiment and adhered to the front of the house and added blue gems to the top of the roofs on both sides and to either side of the sentiment.

Before adding the swim suit girl from the Tutti Frutti Decorative Brads I changed out the brad and I cut a small flower diecut from the same paper pad using the smallest flower diecut from the Tag and Pocket Bookmark Diecuts and added to the swim suit girl.

I added more fussy cut images from the paper pad to the bottom of the house.
For the life preserver I used a smaller circle punch and punched out the center first and used a larger punch to the punch out the life preserver.

I adhered the base to the bottom of the house and there you have it! Finished! Wouldn’t these make great gifts for small Christmas gifts or add a gift card for a house warming gift. So many possibilities!!! Be sure to stop by Eileen Hull’s blog and see what the rest of the Inspiration Team has been up to. You can find her blog HERE. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
