In the magazine it is shown on a hearth but my fireplace is just a tad too short so I have put it in the bay window where it fits perfectly. (unfortunately it would not fit inside my new light box but I did place the left over piece of foam core behind each section as I took the photos and it worked a treat to)
I don't have the Sizziz Artful Dwellings or the TH Numeric so cut out my own house shape designs from thick card and printed my numbers off in word using different fonts and coloured card.
The papers used are all from the bumper pack of 72 sheets for £1 that Di and I bought at the NEC.
The clothes peg has been coloured with a Graph'it pen and then covered in home made Washi tape (left over from one of last Christmas makes).
The hand sign is a freebie from here. You just move the peg along each day.
I raided my Christmas stash of oddments for all the embellishments. Poinsettia is a Poppy stamp die no 861.
Wooden sentiments by Dovercraft another £1 buy from NEC.
Other wooden ornaments are by Hely Cupleditch
Backs of the houses are all covered with the same papers as the front.
All joined together with red ribbon sandwiched between the cardboard and papers.
