Candy Cane Lane

Happy Monday. I hope you had a good weekend. We finally got to 50 yesterday. Still to cold for me but at least it is not snowing.
Amy Jaz Designs had another new release on Friday called Candy Cane Lane
This is the paper pack

These are the elements

This is what I made with it.


I have wanted to make one of these boxes for awhile now and when I saw this paper I knew this was the perfect chance. I intended to enter this in the ColorQ challenge last week but didn't get it finished in time. I still used the colors for inspiration though.
I started with the Perfect Presentation Favor II box SVG template and Kraft Cardstock then I added the roof and sides using papers from the kit. The front was made with the new Door To Door set from Papertrey Ink. When I saw that set I knew I had to have it. This is the first time I have used it and I love it! You will definitely be seeing more houses made with it. I stamped the main image then colored it with Copics. Next I cut the door with the matching die then attached it to Pure Poppy Cardstock. After that I added the trees and wreath. On the sides I added windows from the Homemade set. On the top of the box where the flap opens I added the banner and sentiment from Door To Door and tiny red Rhinestones. To finish it off I added Hawaiian Shores scalloped trim to the bottom, Hawaiian Shores saddle stitched ribbon and a Pure Poppy Button. Inside the door is a a place to write to and from. It is from Fillable Frames #9. These boxes are the perfect place to add some homemade Peppermint chocolate cookies. Emilia made them. You can get the recipe here.
That's all for now. I have a big Etsy order that is going to keep me busy most of the week but I will be back soon with a few more holiday projects to share. Until then I hope the rest of your week is a great one and as always thanks for stopping by.

This is absolutely stunning. I love everything you did, and all the papers and colors you chose. Your project is the first thing I have seen with Door to Door that is not from a DT. Yours is just as good!
