SVG Cuts Merry Maple Manor


Hey everyone!
Are you all ready for Christmas? I'm not even close... eeek! I have been so busy with these crafty projects that I'm starting to panic because I haven't started my Christmas shopping yet :(

Anyways, let me tell you a little about today's project... This house comes from SVG Cuts Maple Manor SVG Kit. If you saw the last house I did (HERE) you may have noticed it was inspired by Thienly Azim's Home For Christmas Project.... same goes for this house! This particular house is now displayed on one of the hospital units I work on. Hopefully it will bring some JOY and smiles to the patients, visitors and the staff I work with! I really love how this one turned out and hope they do too :)


Once again, for those interested in all the files I used here is the long list!

House - Maple Manor SVG Kit
Patio fence - Country Market SVG Kit
Windows - Townhouse Windows SVG Mini Pack
 Fence - For My Valentine SVG Kit
 Chimney - December Gifts SVG Kit
Greens - 3D Wintergreens  &  Spirits of Christmas Past SVG Kit
Chandelier (modified candelabra) - Gothic Flourishes SVG Collection 


Here is a list of the alterations I made to the original house:

  • Windows (See Home For Christmas for instructions).
  • Added poke holes around the roof line to poke Christmas lights through.
  • Added all the files listed above to embellish the house and make it my own. You can do the same using any files you may have!
Cut out black Silhouettes and add them in front of the windows. When the house is lit up it will actually look like there are little people living inside it... Super cool!!!



Love the silhouette of this little girl with her present at the window... and how pretty is this wreath too! I'm always amazed when I am able to cut out small intricate pieces, check out these small leafy cuts, cut out perfectly on the Silhouette Cameo.


Here is a side shot of the Merry Maple Manor.

For the snow along the roof line, I used Snow-tex from DecoArt that I purchased at Micheal's. This stuff is great and dries in a few hours!


Thanks for stopping by, hope you liked my take on the Maple Manor turned Merry!
I still have a few more Christmas projects to make and post about! Hopefully I will get to them soon :)


Happy Crafting Everyone :)

Thanks Tammy! If you have the time, you totally should make one! You will love it and so will everyone else :)

Ilda Dias said...

Thank you Robin! Happy you like it :)

Thanks Kelly! It's so fun to watch people stare at it and then realize that it is all made out of paper. The fun part is when I tell them I made it and they are like... no way I don't believe you, lol!

Ilda Dias said...

Thanks Natasha! So much possibilities with the Silhouette. It is my favourite crafting tool. I use it for everything!!! You should try building something out of paper, I warn you it is very addicting. It's like paper Lego, lots of pieces, lots of mess... but so rewarding when you are done!

Ilda Dias said...

Thanks you Dr. Sonia! Hope you are doing well, so happy you stopped by :)

Ilda Dias said...

Your work is wonderful, I was hoping you would tell me what brand of cardstock and glue that you use. Thank you, Jane

Ilda Dias said...

Hi Jane, most of the cardstock I used was white AC cardstock. The glue I always use is scotch quick dry glue. Hope that helps :)
