Project inspired by Craft Stamper July 2010

My favourite craft magazine is craft stamper, I don't really like direct copying of any ones work, however occasionally something jumps out and me and I just have to give it try. On Page 8 of July 2010 Craft stamper, was a delightful beach house, designed by "Jean Hardy" She had used a crafty individual tray, a chipboard house roof, three birds and a picket fence. I had none of them but what I did have was a wooden box, that had contain little fairy light embellishments, I drew the house, roof & bird  and made the fence from strips or cardboard using a fancy edge cutter. I filed the windows with scenes from crafty individuals book not sure which as I have used the cover of said book for previous project. I added a little bird to the roof and some flowers. I had fun making it, I am going to box it and add a greeting in the middle section.
