Ginger Village

While I was working on the recipe card sets, I started thinking about Christmas and all the wonderful foods and family traditions.  Specifically, cookies.  Sugar and gingerbread.  Some of our best childhood memories come from baking and decorating cookies with Mom and/or Grandma.  From gingerbread cookies, I moved to gingerbread houses.  So, we have Ginger Village.

This is something new from me, a brag kit, specifically designed for making brag books.  It is 1800 x 1200 pixels, or 6 x 4 inches, the same size as the recipe cards.

Ginger Village contains:

  • 19 papers
  • 8 gingerbread houses
  • 9 sugar cookies
  • 8 gingerbread cookies
  • 4 gingerbread men
  • 6 candy sheets (about 50 pieces total)
  • 3 candy sticks
  • 3 street lights
  • 3 curled ribbons
  • 15 flowers
  • 10 frames
  • 2 fences
  • 2 fallen snow
  • 2 falling snow
  • 12 buttons
  • 3 signs
  • 8 glitter tiles
  • 1 alpha (upper and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols)

The font for the alpha is Dinova Black.  It can be downloaded from dafont.com, as can Santa’s Sleigh, the font used on the signs.

The tutorials I did or read when making or preparing to make this kit are legion:

To make the gingerbread houses, I adapted several house tutorials, such as the Munster House tutorial above.  Most of these were at Moonwolf.  In the weeks since I made the houses, this site has disappeared.  These are the ones I used:  Urban Mansion, City Mansion, Victorian Folly, Folk House Style, and Victorian Queen House.

Also, you may want to try this tutorial for Do-It-Yourself Icing.  And this one for a gingerbread cookie alpha with drizzled icing.
