Christmas Church in a Lantern - Stampin' Up! meets Tim Holtz Village!


This has to be my favourite project of the year... so far!!

A project where Stampin' Up! Santa's Sleigh meets Tim Holtz Village dies... with Halloween Night Speciality papers and a whole load of glitter thrown in... a perfect Christmas Lantern... finished off with flickering lights...
Although taking good photos proved difficult!

And I am not alone... so a few more December classes are now being arranged to make one of these... as everyone who has seen it in the flesh seem to want to make one of their own!
So please contact me here to book now - or to register your interest. Just £20 for a half day class in Great Ouseburn, North Yorkshire with everything included.... and sorry but this is not available as a Class in the Mail option...
So glad I was made to go back to the Gift Company shop in Telford after the Stampin Up On Stage event! Thanks Sharon and Jane!! Look what happened... though you would have laughed at the 2 very large boxes that turned up with my subsequent order... taller than me!!

    1. Thank you Trina... I love it too... I don't think a tutorial will give much more information on this occasion... as it is all about using the dies... Just a case of (1) Die cut 12 Santa Sleigh Garden Green trees, score in half, valley fold and stick together as a foursome to create the 3 trees (2) Die cut card and paper as required for the church using the Tim Holtz Village dies and assemble/stick together (3) Die cut 7 Tim Holtz Village fence panels and stick together (last one will need to be trimmed - creates a nice little gate!) (4) Draw and cut a 6" circle and cover with glitter. Hope that maybe helps!?

  5. Hi Amanda, I've only just seen this on Pinterest, and I love it! I'm addicted to making Tim Holtz houses, but I'd love to know where you buy your lanterns from! They're a perfect size! If you'd share the info, I'd be very grateful, but if you'd like to keep it to yourself, I'd quite understand...xx
