Stained Glass Delicate Ornaments for PL

Do you remember this card that I painstakingly made ??? You can see all about it Here.

Embellished Ornament, Stained Glass Ornament, Christmas Card, My paper Oasis, Stampin Up, Foil Paper

Well I absolutely adored that card, so when it came to writing out all my Christmas Cards this year to hand out – well – lets just say that I couldn’t possibly part with this card! It was just too special, too gorgeous and too much work to part with. Still, I wasn’t entirely sure what I was going to do with it!

Then came along my December Daily album where the front needed some special adorning for Christmas.  I was stuck this year as to what to decorate it with.  I had thought of using the ornaments soon many times – but I wasn’t sure how to quite do it.

Then yesterday it came to me whilst staring at my card….. I wanted that ornament on my album – however I really didn’t want to spend hours making another one – so I set to work using this one without to much fuss at all.

Here’s what I created……

my paper oasis, stampin up, delicate ornaments, christmas, christmas bauble, project life, PL, embellished ornaments

I simply trimmed my card down and used our new ‘Number of Years’ dies with our red foil to create the year. A glittered star and gold cording trim and I was done!!!! And isn’t it wonderful that the ornaments have carried forward into the Occasions Catalogue!

I hope you like it!

Now to complete the pages……………. :-/

Happy Crafting.

Christmas Advent Tree

As soon as I saw this beautiful project by Allison Okamitsu of Nice People Stamp, I absolutely knew that I wanted to, needed to, must have a go at creating it too!

Who wouldn’t? This project is amazing! Her projects are amazing!

She was so generous to share her project details on the USA Stampin Up Page and I have seen many classes run since.  I wasn’t any different – we created this project in my last class for the year last week.

I used a paper ache round box for my base that I found at Spotlight.  It has a lid, so I can weight the base if I find it needs stabilising once filled with goodies.  The Home for Christmas DSP was PERFECT for this project.  I cut mine into 1 7/8″ squares. The numbers were taken from the Hello December 2015 Project Life Accessory Kit.

Now all thats left is to fill each box with yummy chocolate goodness and enjoy!!!!

Eureka Stampers Blog Hop

Welcome to our Awesome Team ‘Eureka Stampers’ Blog Hop! I hope you have enjoyed the items show cased so far and you have got some fantastic inspiration from everybody’s projects! 

If you began from the start then you should have arrived from Jessica Williams fabulous blog ‘The Paper Caper’.

Well, with all of our new amazing products we have in our new catalogue, let me tell you, it was so hard to decide what to showcase on this hop! There are just soooooo many choices! But, I had to choose – so here goes –

 
One of my absolute must have’s in this catalogue is the ‘Something for Baby’ bundle. All those cute baby stamps with matching Framelits…what’s not to like! It makes it so easy to make cards and gift tags for someone’s special arrival, but I wanted to show you something different.

This is a ‘Block Card’ that are currently very popular and this one which I saw on Pinterest I just had to CASE it!  I changed the measurements so it’s smaller and folds flat into a regular sized envelope (I find that so much easier!) You can find the original here.
 

My other project I thought may help you get the most use out of the new Project Life stamp sets –
 ‘Point & Click’ and ‘Remember This’. I am loving the photopolymer range! I have tried lots of other photopolymer stamps and have never been truly satisfied with the quality of the image you get . .. but as usual Stampin’ Up! have done their research and have found a fantastic polymer product!
So here is my take on this handy little journal / mini album that you could put photos in or extra journaling! It could be given as a gift or even slipped into a PL project pocket.

Thanks for joining me.

If you’re interested in purchasing any of these products or attending classes, then feel free to contact me using the tab at the top of the page 🙂
