Nativity Glass Block

I made the nativity scene from the Paper Dolls Cartridge, the star is from the Joys of the Season Cartrdige and the font is Plantin. I ran all of them thru my Xyron and they attached easily to the glass. The star was placed inside the block for a different effect. I also got some fake snow and put a little in at the bottom of the block (it looks like I put a lot in at the angle of the pic but it's actually just a little). I tried twinkle lights - but they just didn't work for what I was going for -but I've seen them look just beautiful in other glass blocks.

Christmas Paper Wreath


I've been wanting to make a wreath like this for awhile - my 5 year old son and I tackled it on Thanksgiving. I purchased a styrofoam wreath (mine is about 18 inches). I then cut about 15 sheets of patterned paper into 1 X 5 inch strips - you get about 14 from a sheet. Mine are not even all Christmas papers - just some greens and reds that worked well mixed in. Don't go too crazy trying to match perfectly - trust me mine don't and they still blend together well! My son stapled the ends together to make a loop. Then I hot glued them onto the wreath working around one row at a time. In all it took about 2 hours!

I colored the original one of this and decided I liked it better uncolored. No stickles on this one - but I did have one lady at the workshop who tried to give Mary lipstick with the stickles. It gave us all a good laugh!

Deck the Halls

Another workshop card - I love the Stickles on this one and I really love the bow stamp for the ornmanets - a very delicate addition!

O Holy Night


A simple Christmas card we made at my card workshop. We used stickles on the star - I love stickles!

Christmas in July


Another layout using items from The Robin's Nest - I love their glittery products! The journaling stamp is from Close to My Heart - I'm lovin that set for a quick but nice looking journaling area!

Joy

This layout employs my technique - start it - get frustrated - walk away (in this case for days) - come back and finish and be quite satisfied :). I loved getting to use "dew drops" on the tree and love how they turned out for the garland! The paper and dew drops came from The Robins Nest. The frame is Close to My Heart. Their dimensional elements are rapidly becoming a "must have" on most of my layouts!
