Corner bookmarks and Little altered houses

Show time is approaching faster every day and one of my shows is a new one to me and I am taking some paper crafts as well as painted items. I saw these house shapes out of wood on Artchix Studio site and thought gee those are beautiful and I had scraps of wood from various projects I had been cutting out. What a great idea to use those scraps and not just end up tossing them afterall wood is getting expensive to buy these days.
So here are a few, these are just nice little shelf sitters and something to look at and make you smile or give you some inspiration just when you need it. I have a few more houses that aren't shown here but this gives you an idea of what I did. Some of the images I have used are Artchix images and some I got from FlickR.

And these are corner bookmarks that I made from Splitcoast Stampers tutorial newsletter that I receive. These are a lot of fun and just make me go wild with ideas. I have quite a few of these made. I hope they sell for me and I will probably make some of these for gifties at Christmas. I had fun using my edge punchers and my Cuttlebug for making flowers.

The above corner bookmards I encorported inchies into. What a great way to use up those paper scraps and if you do them assembly style they work up quite quickly.
Thanks for dropping by.
