Ginger Snap Scraps Grand Opening!
If you arrived here from Becky's Blog then you're in the right place.

I am thrilled to bring you another project today in this 2 day blog hop celebrating the Grand Opening of Ginger Snap Scraps, a new online scrap store. 
Ginger Snap Scraps is owned by Cori Wagner, a stay at home mom who has been scrapbooking, card making and rubber stamping for over 15 years!
Ginger Snap Scraps carries many top brand products you probably use and love today including Cricut Cartridges that are always $35 or less. 
Other popular brands include My Mind's Eye, Tim Holtz, Copic, Doodlebug Design, The Twinery, Bella Blvd, Graphic 45, La La Land, Little Yellow Bicycle, Riley & Co., Peachy Keen, and many more!
Yesterday and today, several wonderful and talented bloggers have come together to showcase projects using products available now in the Ginger Snap Scraps store.
My project today is a paper birdhouse. I fell in love with this SVG file over at
I am going to make a few more in differnet sizes to put on my shelf for summer.
All paper is from my stash as well as from my scrap box. 
I used a couple different Cuttlebug embossing folders for the front of the birdhouse as well as the roof. I also used Tim Holtz distressing ink to highlight many of the leaves, flowers and the little bird. Both the Cuttlebug embossing folders and Tim Holtz inks can be found over at Ginger Snap Scraps.

Very sweet birdhouse! I have those cuts too from SVG Cuts and DO enjoy making birdhouses too.

I'm enjoying this hop, and love Cori's new webstore @Ginger Snap Scraps. I've already made my first purchase from GSS -- and my experience was WONDERFUL!! Welcome, Cori!
