    I love Halloween and you always have the best projects! The mansion is just awesome. I’m glad you shared your mistake stories – everyone makes them but it’s nice to hear it from a professional.

    Hi Tim
    I enjoyed the video and wanted to make tjis BUT the die for the Village Dwelling on which it is based in OUT OF STOCK everywhere in the UK, (is it still being manufactured??? Also can’t find the Village Manor Die availablity in the UK either.

  3. Lorrie S. says:

    Although I likely won’t be making one of these, I really enjoyed watching the process. There were lots of ideas that can be used elsewhere too. Thank you Tim!

    This is what you are meant to do, create….long overdue, so glad you are back to playing/creating. We have missed your creativity!!!!

    This is hands down my favorite Tim Holtz project! From the wood siding to the mica windows is both brilliant and stunning! Unless I missed something, I just wish you had given Meriscrapper13 on YouTube credit for giving detailed instructions back in August for both the mansard assembly and for cutting the roof to let the light shine through.

    hahah….I bought this right away when I could find it and have had so much fun w/ it….I made my daughter a sweet candy box using a recycled cheese wheel box and put my lil haunted village manor on top! It came out so great! Glad your doing a tutorial, there wasnt much to go by on youtube, but I figured it out…would love to share the pic of it!
    Great great die!

    OOh- so spooky! I need to figure out how to make a ghost come out of that top window. I am also visioning bright Christmas colors with snow and glitter and holly and wreaths on the windows. Great die package!!

  19. Tallulah says:

    Thanks for this post. I’ve made more than a dozen of these for party favors. You have added some cool details so I may make a dozen more! That is if time allows before the holidays of all holidays, Hallowe’en!

    fantastic addition to the village series! love your creation and great tutorial!

  27. Dolly says:

    Oh my word Tim!! I LOVED the video, it’s so great to see YOU doing Your Projects! yes there are amazing artists who create with your products all the time but Nobody does Tim Holtz like Tim Holtz himself!! I love all the little details right from the windows and siding to the lightening! Totally brings your Village Manor to spooky Life!! TFS Tim! LOVED IT!! 😀

  28. Thank you for the great tutorial and adding the bonus lighting video. I taught the Manor House last month and used an embossing folder for siding but yours looks so much more detailed. Now, off to the dollar store to look for the strobe lights!

  29. Mary G says:

    Never thought I would want to do something like this but Tim proved me wrong!!! Love the (to me) haunted house….. I do have a question though, and I’m not sure about where to ask… I am new to Tim’s stamps, and I would like to know how to store them – the leather bound binder is no longer available, so I am open to suggestions. Thanks!

  30. Noella Marie says:

    Oh my gosh what an awesome house. Love this Manor home for the holidays both Halloween and Christmas.

  31. deborah daniels says:

    I love this die. I have made 2 of these haunted houses and they are super cool!!!

  32. Anne R says:

    Such a great video Tim. I love this village manor so much I have been making these for family and friends, your tip about the roof is brilliant (why didn’t I think of that!) and the lights are amazing! I find when I cut the whole thing out there is a ‘V’ shaped piece left over and fits really well over the front porch piece and finishes it off nicely. Thank you, as always, for sharing your wonderful ideas. Glad you are finding some creative time too! xx

  33. Rosetta Jenkins says:

    Just ordered the Village Dwelling and Bell Tower. Cannot wait for them to arrive. I have already viewed your video on putting the basic piece together…twice. I can already imagine my little neighborhood. Amazing how out of one piece comes many. Thank you so much for your creativity.

  34. Oh Tim, this is SO much like playing with dolls houses..what a wonderful project. I am glad you are enjoying your making time in the studio.It makes life slip more into place doesn’t it? Thanks for the video.

  35. I think we will all also be loving that you have some more creative time freed up now, especially when the results look like this!!! So many fabulous ideas now spinning in my head. Thank you as ever for sharing xx

  36. Angele van Leeuwen says:

    Loving the manor but also it’s setting with the pumpkin garden!

  41. Andrea Asher says:
