I’m excited to particpate in the new Sizzix Blog Hop that is going on. There is a long list of professional craft designers who are involved (LIST), which makes it very intimidating! I decided to take it easy, and just let myself have fun!
Our first project was to decorate this cute 3D cardboard house. It was designed by artist Eillen Hull. (#65279;Sizzix Scoreboards Pro Die – House, 3D)
I’ve been on deadline for a top secret mega project and didn’t have a lot of time to embellish, so I went old school – and doodled! Using one of my Crafty Chica® Tango Permanent Fabric Markers™ and Aleene’s® Super Thick Tacky Glue™ to hold it all together, I ended up with a cute little project that I can add to later.
It just goes to show that you don’t always need super fancy supplies – if you feel creative, pickup a pen and doodle your heart out, write out your favorites words or designs and have fun with sizes, trims, dots and more.
As soon as I have more time, I plan to go back in and add some color and glitter to my new casita!

Fun, Fun, Fun! Love your take on the project!
So simple, fun and creative!
I actually like it black and white as is. Maybe a heavy satin glaze? Looks like a big iced vanilla cookie, that I want to break off a piece and have with a cup of coffee.
Kathy, this is wonderful! Love the black and white approach, very fresh!
This is not what I expected from you, but I love it! The simplicity of black and white is gorgeous! Are you SURE you want to add anything else….?
I love this and the fact that you doodled makes it all the better
