Hello Again crafty crew! I've got a twist on the Advent Calendar House so let's jump straight into my latest project that I've loved creating! It's an amazing size at 15 x 16" and houses 24,  2.25" inch drawers, so there's plenty of room to play.  And because it's shaped like a house, it's super delightful! I decided to add my own spin to this and created a storage unit AND cut windows and added acetate to 12 drawers so you can see what's housed! So yay; surprise :-) And using the Hello Again collection was a perfect fit.

I started to decorate each drawer by using the enclosed template to cut 24 2" squared patterned papers; these ones here are from top left: Holiday Sprinkles (brown paper), Berry Floral (pink paper b-side), Cookies for Santa (white paper) from Gingerbread Kisses and bubblegum dot-stripe (pink stripe paper) from the Rainbow Petites pack. Then I laid down the roof background patterned paper with Butterfly Garden from Hello Again. So darling right - I adore the mix of papers and colors!

Once all the foundation papers were set on each drawer, I decorated each with the ephemera, icons stickers, sprinkles and the mini icon stickers, so many cute things in the Hello Again collection to use! And I love how all Doodlebug Design collections coordinate so fabulously!

Using pop dots and foam tape behind the ephemera pieces gives depth and texture to the house. I Love that stack of books and sprinkling around the epoxy flowers and see that cute tea bag! Swoon!

I was so pleased with the result of cutting windows!   Decorating with a general themed collection means I can display this beauty in my craftroom all year round! It serves such a great function for storage for mini ribbon spools, bottled sequins, pom poms, buttons and in the non window drawers I can stash candy and chocolate which is such a necessity when crafting... heehee.

Thanks so much for popping by my crafty crew - it's always so nice to see you! Remember to tag us in on your Socials so we can see all your Doodlebug Design projects. Until next time, doodle doo!
