Calling all BIRDS!

Finally....the mini many of you have been BEGGING for since I showed it last March? April? ....oh sometime around then!!! ....The BIRDHOUSE mini Album.

It's a mini that fits into a birdhouse box...the roof is part of the mini cover. (Yes, the Picnic Basket mini was derived from this one). Part One of the class will be tonight at 7pm Pacific Time and Part Two will be tomorrow at 10am Pacific time (note the time is 1/2 hour later than I usually do on Saturday!) CLICK HERE to go directly to my Ustream channel.

The pattern for the Birdhouse is available at my Etsy shop, as well as the kits I still have available. CLICK HERE to go directly to Etsy. You will need the instructions for the dimensions and supply requirements to make this mini as I won't be giving them out during the class in fairness to those who have already purchased the pattern.

See you tonight!!



  1. Laura the bird house is stunning! I can't wait till tonight:) Your prices for your kits are so reasonable, it would cost me more to buy all the supplies myself. My Mother In Law loves birds and bird house, so I will be getting this to make for her. Just have to wait till my hubby comes home tonight to tell me which pattern he thinks she would like best. See you tonight! Oh, and I hope Sarah is feeling better...and the ketchup has left you alone.


  2. Laura, you are amazingly talented and continue to be wowed by all your ideas! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Well, I did it! I bought the convservatory - just can't wait to get my hands on it..unfortunatly, I won't have my kit in time for your live video but thats ok - I can watch it anytime. Thank you! just curious...which one will you be working on? Jubilee or conservatory?

  4. Hi, i've been trying to email you, but i guess my emails are not getting through because i'm not getting a reply? Could you please tell me the best way to contact you?
    Thankyou :)

  5. Everything you make is awesome, but I think this is my favorite.

  6. I just bumped into your tube videos. Wow!! That is some amazing things you have created. I hope to be inspired by some of your creations. How do I connect to your online live streaming classes?

  7. Thank you SOOOO much for getting the pattern out to me before the show started... I LOVE it!!!
    I finished the birdhouse (well, my verson of it) and it has to be the cutest thing I have ever created - so adorably sweet. You are a GENIUS!
    Quick news on the CallieCat - her daddy got shot... he has some feeling back in his legs (yay!! good news there), but not out of the woods just yet - and I am so sorry to have interrupted the UStream with that news - only I was so shocked!
    Anyways... Thank you again - and CallieCat says hello :)

  8. Your work is amazing. I sent an email earlier in the week, were you able to get to it yet? I was watching yor Exploding Envelopes box Part 2 and you used a colletion of paper, that I totally love and I would like to know how to get some. You said something about Global Trips (?) or something like that. Can you please email me more info on it, I would really like to get that. Love your work and creative mind. I wanted to order the Picnic Kit, but I see you are sold out of that one. Will you be making anymore? Thank you for your help and time. Take care and God Bless.
