5 part Video Series- Holiday House Tutorial

Yay!! My Dear Sweet Hubby figured out how to post the video of the Holiday House Tutorial that I made. This was a first and it turned out pretty long, so it's in 5 parts...maybe next time I can figure out how to do it a little easier...but this was a chore. Not to mention the few cuts he had to make of me messing around...I did a few screw ups.
So, I am NOT a professional on video and since I was still in my pj's I wouldn't let him film me...and my crap is piled everywhere...I really thought it was a practice run, but it was a ton of work (for us first timers) so I didn't want to take the time to start over. Plus, I have crafter hands..yep, these almost 38 year old hands have seen a lot of stuff...if only hands could talk!
I'm a chatty I talk you through each step and kind of don't stop talking...Sorry, it's just me.
I know that the quality is hard to see the details..and I am working on pics of the details on the next house that I am working on so then I can post some close up pics of the steps..but for now, this will have to do.
I used Pink Paislee Jack Frost Snowflake paper, it's so pretty in the light because it is actually a metallic it's glimmery. I accented with Silver Berry Pixie Stix glitter.
The windows are made from the Maya Road Scallop Frames. The scallop border was made from the Maya Road Border Sheet.

The houses are made by Craft Pedlar.

I use Fabri-Tac by the gallon (and is what I used on this project)'s the best glue I ever met.
I also use Designer Art Glitter Glue for ALL my glittering. It also rocks!

I use the Finger Tip Craft Knife (razor knife with incredible control)by Fiskars throughout the project. I also use the Tim Holtz Tonic Scissors.

Of course the Treading Water Punch by Fiskars is pretty important, yep..couldn't make the roof without it.

Don't get confused, I was working on my 3rd house and thought that I needed to make the window cutting more clear, so I redid that part with a different house...Then it was too hard to cut it stays.

OK, so please...remember that this was a test...and I am not that great on I was winging was only my 2nd house that I I was a little shaky.
