My project today was made using the newly released Taylored Expressions Neighborhood Border and Build a House.

Instead of creating a single line border of houses I wanted to create a dimensional neighborhood. I cut each one with a different color of cardstock and colored the roofs with a black copic marker. I couldn’t resist adding lampposts to every house. I cut three different layers of green cardstock using my deckle scissors and attached the houses. I attached the layers together with mounting tape to create a small separation between each one.

I cut the trees and fence from the Build a House set.  I created leaves by using the negative cutouts from my Fancy Cutout Border.  I attached them to the tree limbs with glossy accents and attached tiny flowers made using my 1/8” circle punch.  I attached the fence sections along the front row of houses and then filled in around the the lampposts, houses and trees with tiny flowers and pine sprig cluster..  I used the cloud from the Build a House set and Puffy Clouds and created the sun with a 3/4” circle punch.
