Christmas Tree Ornaments

Here are some of the Ornaments that I am working on as gifts. I don't have any of my trees out yet so I can't show them hanging up. I will remedy that soon. The top glass ornament uses Stampin' Up!s snowflake punch and designer paper with some filler inside the ornament.

The bottoms ones use the large Snowflake Die and I have used several of the Designer papers from Stampin' Up! for these. They are colorful on both sides.
A piece of designer paper was run through the Xyron and then adhered to the Thick Window Sheets from Stampin' Up! before using the large Snowflake Die #2. I did this to give them more body. Then on the paper side I used Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds. Once the first coat was dry I went over it again with Crystal Effects so they would really stand out. They look much prettier in person and I am sure to make a lot more. So these will go to the family at Christmas. Hope you like them.

Time to Catch Up!

There has just been so much going on. I feel I will not be able to keep as active here as what I had but will be checking in at least once a week. I have started going around to the wonderful blogs and seeing the terrific art work you have been producing. I will try and get a few things posted over the weekend.

I also feel very pleased that since January I have lost 50 pounds and should reach my goal weight this week. I feel ever so much better and will be posting a new photo soon. Have a great day my friends.
