Tiny Houses

My friend Jackie at Smooth Pebble Studio was feeling a bit hemmed in by winter recently and decided to host a party. And by party I mean a swap. Since the only swaps I've ever participated in are those that we have for Christmas cards and Valentines at our monthly Stampin' Up! gatherings, I decided it was about time I give it a go. So along with several other crafters, I accepted Jackie's challenge and started thinking about Tiny Houses. Jackie gathered everyone's contact information and assigned partners. I don't know who is sending Tiny Houses to me, but I sent mine to Emily at Mousy Brown's House. And what, pray tell, did I send? I am so glad you asked! 

This mini album is six inches wide and about eight inches tall. I chose this paper for the front and back cover because it gives a bit of an English cottage feel. Emily lives "across the pond" and has taken some beautiful photos of flowers, so that just felt right. Inside the covers are four pages, each a house with a different roofline. Here are a couple:

These tags and journaling cards slip into the side of each of the houses. 

And here is the back cover....


I hope Emily will be able to find a good use for it. I have enough of these papers to make a similar mini album to put in my Etsy shop (when I finally get it back up and running!) so I've added it to my to do list.

It's time for another Linky Party at Heartwarming Vintage and I'm heading there right now to add a couple of my pieces.

Thanks for stopping by today! See you next time!


  1. Hi Michele, Thanks for entering our March Linky Party and your calendar looks sweet, I just can't see a larger photo but came here to say hi and thank you

    1. Thanks, Sandy! Sorry I messed up the link. I'll get it right next time. ;)

  2. It just arrived with me today and is even more gorgeous in real life! Thank you so much, I can see how much time and effort you have put into making it ( there is so much detail!) and I really appreciate it - can't wait to get photos in.... :)

    1. Good! Thanks for letting me know. I'm glad you like it! I have been away from home for a few days, so I hope mine will be waiting for me when I get back.
