It Takes a Village: Part 3

Tomorrow is the BIG DAY! IT'S ALMOST HERE!!! I know you guys will be just as excited about the launch party as we are. Not too much longer to wait before you see what we have in store!

Launch Party

You're invited to join Kathy Orta Files, Jim Hankins and me on YouTube LIVE at 9:00 p.m. Eastern USA time this Thursday, October 10, 2013 for the launch of something truly epic:
This broadcast replaces my usual Thursday night Scrap Chat. Euro Chat is cancelled this week so you gals and guys overseas can take naps to rest up for the big reveal. :)
I will be your host for the evening, and you'll see me on camera in a way you've NEVER seen me before! I promise you will love everything we have in store for you, but to sweeten the deal there will also be some fabulous prizes. Sign up for your chance to win at the end of this post, and then visit Kathy Orta Files at Paper Phenomenon and Jim Hankins at The Gentleman Crafter for more chances to win!
Please bookmark the event link and mark your calendars. You won't want to miss an exciting evening of news, chatting and prizes. :)  To convert 9:00 p.m. Eastern USA time to your time zone, click here:

It Takes a Village!

To celebrate the upcoming launch party, Kathy Orta Files at Paper Phenomenon, Hankins at The Gentleman Crafter and I have collaborated on a three part project series. Visit each of our blogs today and tomorrow to see video tutorials of our Christmas village buildings!
Jim will walk you through his fabulous shop (complete with window display), Kathy will show you how she built her lovely church and I have a tutorial below with an adorable little cottage.

The Album

This album is super simple to make - you just need a sheet of paper, some scrap cardstock and some 4"x6" photos. It would be great as a gift, especially if it came with its own little cottage. :)
I filmed this house coming together for my YouTube channel. You can watch the video below, or click this link to watch it over on YouTube: Christmas Cottage, Part Three.


Thanks for watching! Be sure to sign up below for a chance to win some really cool prizes during Thursday's launch party! See you there!

  1. Kathryn, thank you for sharing the door instructions. I thought it was embossed, your method is very easy and it looks fantastic. I will be using this door technique in making the cottage and other projects where I need a great looking door. The red door would look amazing with a wreath on it. Thank you for the excellent tutorials on this beautiful realistic cottage. I am looking forward with excitement to tomorrow evening.
