Birdhouse Christmas Decoration & Layout


Jodie here with you today sharing my latest project with you all.


The first I want to share with you is an off the page project.
I found this little birdhouse at my local Spotlight store and thought it would make a fantastic addition to my Christmas Decorations.

I started by covering it with some Kaisercraft Silver Bells paper but you could just leave it plain if you like.

 I then used the large Christmas Star to frame the hole.
I cut the centre from the star.
Around the base I added a small picket fence.

 To cover the roof  I used some gauze and then placed the webbing over the top to give it the look of branches.

 I then sprayed the whole thing with a can of silver spray paint.
Once that was dry, I covered it with Diamond Dust to add some sparkle.
 To finish it off I added some birds and wrapped some Christmas star tinsel around it.

 This is the finished project.


The other project I would like to share with you is a single page layout.

Papers used are from Kaisercraft Time Machine Collection.

Firstly I started with the Circle Stain Stencil (One of my favourites) and used Kaiser's Coffee Spray mist and sprayed through the stencil and then let shook the stencil over my page to get the drops.
 On this page I have used the smallest string circle, the lamps, cogs border 10 (cut to make the cluster) and some assorted words.

I have coloured them using Prima's Rust Effect Paste in Red Dust and Brown Rust.

You can find all of these products at

Here are a list of the chipboard I have used.
