Bird House Mini Album

Ok....before you judge me on my choice of titles, you HAVE to remember that I'm one of these people who are very susceptible to peer pressure. So, when I prepare to upload-which I do to, first, I see the title bar that says "Choose a snappy title!" and on days like today, (and no...I do NOT mean 'days I'm sober' far as you know) I'm just drawing a blank for a title for this bird house mini album project. Hence the addition 'Of Doom' to the title.

Snappy or not, it's an attention grabber.

This is a tutorial I purchased quite a long time ago and forgot about. At the time, it was too advanced for me. I was still trying to figure out exactly what A2 meant, and what exactly one used 'Glossy Accents' for, not to mention I'd never even HEARD of 'chipboard', never mind how I was supposed to USE it. I'm actually winding down from purchasing tutorials, mostly because I've learned a lot of the basics for creating 3D projects. Purchasing these tutorials was a very inexpensive way to get a little more training in that area.

But at the end of the day, I've GOT to tell you this...if you haven't checked out the tutorials HERE at SCS...which have printed directions AND videos, to boot...and are FREE...I suggest you start here first. I can tell you in all honesty that I've never found a seller yet that can match the variety and expertise in one place than here at SCS!

This birdhouse roof actually lifts off and is a mini album. I made this for my mother-in-law because she loves birds and pictures of her grandchildren. That means that not only did I make the perfect gift for her, I also made sure that she'll pretty much side with me in every disagreement with her son from this point on.


I'll try to get links up on my blog in a bit...I wanted to make sure to get this posted because I have some very important things to do today. Mainly sleep. Mostly because my husband has started to snore...due to a promotion at work and working from home til he's so exhausted he can barely keep his eyes open. But before you pity him, remember it's ME who isn't getting any rest. And I'm pretty sure it IS all about me.

Of course, the DH really isn't getting quality rest either. And it's not due to overwork, or the fact our 8 year old has STILL not left our bed and is roughly the size of a Great that likes to sleep stretched out between us with feet on the DH and head buried under MY, it's not any of that. It's actually due to my having to 'nudge' him with my foot when his snoring gets so loud that I have to wake him up.

NOTE: There's a bit of dissention between us over the definition for 'to nudge'. I maintain I merely nudge him with my foot. The DH claims that a 'nudge' should NOT end up with my big toe leaving bruises on his thigh.

He's SUCH a drama-king.

Anyways...I'm done here. Hope you enjoy the project and let me know if you have any questions. Not that I can answer them, necessarily. But I think it sounds good to offer. heh heh

Tutorial can be purchased from I am in no way affiliated with LDD in any way other than a customer, and I get no incentives from her, or any place from which I have purchased tutorials in the past. I will always disclose when and if I am receiving incentives from any company. Don't get me wrong...I TOTALLY want companies to throw me incentives and I'll be GLAD to advertise the you-know-what out of them!!!!! I'm just letting YOU know that I'll tell you if that BLESSED day ever comes. Trust. Peace out. ;)

  1. Hi Carmen! I'm climbing out from under my rock, because I just have to oooh and aahh over this amazing creation. Your talent for 3D projects leaves me speechless. I wouldn't even think about attempting the projects you do.
    (Remember when you lost your mojo, mine is gone for good. I don't even look at stuff on the computer anymore. The good part of that is that I'm not tempted to buy anything (except for using a GC for new dies from IO ).)
