    Hello, I have Gingerbread House day. Gingerbread house Day is December 12th. I love gingerbread houses, people, and cookies. They are so cute. I have used digis from Robyn's Fetish and Cloud 9 Designs. The digis from Robyn Fetish can be found here I used 7 of Robyn's gingerbread digis. The digi where they are decorating the house is by Cloud 9 Designs. You can find it here;pagination_contents;index.php?dispatch=categories.view&category_id=9&page=1

    I colored the digis with Copics. R24, R22, R20,R29, R35, R56, R59, -reds, G03, G07, G28, YG05, -greens B01, B02, B05, B21, B23, B28, B29- blues, E000, E00, E01, E11, E33, E37 E41, R43, E44, E47, - browns,YR02, YR04, YR07- oranges, Y000, Y00, Y01,Y02, Y13, Y15,Y17- yellows, C1, C3, C5, C7- grays. I used Gelly roll pens- Gold Metallic, Silver Metallic, Stardust clear, Red Metallic, Blue Metallic, emerald metallic.

    I used glitter glue on the snow/icing on the houses.

    The tiny gingerbread men by the sentiments are cut from Cricut cartridge Stretch Your Imagination cut at 1". I used Gelly Roll pens to decorate them.

    The papers are by Recollections solids, and Christmas pads, Georgia Pacific- white.

    The sentiments were typed on my computer and printed off.

    The journaling lines were done using a Red Gelly Roll pen.

What a cute layout! We always make a gingerbread house but I cheat and buy the kits. Back in Tucson, you could buy the kit from the local grocery store and then a few days before Christmas you could go in with your kit and they would have people there to help you put it together and decorate it with all sorts of yummy treats. The kids ate more than they used on their house but it was so much fun! Thanks for sharing such a memory triggering layout. Hugs.
