Today I want to share a fun ornament I made using Smoothfoam. I am trying to get ahead of the game this year with my Christmas prep, and I have been busy making ornaments. This cute snowman is one of my favorites- I love the vintage vibe it has going on.
1 3/4" Diameter Smoothfoam Ball
2 1/2" Diameter Smoothfoam Ball
Acrylic Paint, Paintbrush, Glitter Modge Podge, Ribbon, Buttons, Lace, Paper flower, Molding Paste, Glitter, Rub-on, Pearl tipped pin, adhesive, small wood dowel
1. Paint the balls with white craft paint, then a coat of Glitter Modge Podge. I sliced the tiniest bit off one side of each ball, then adhered them together using a wood dowel and adhesive.
2. I used a rub-on for the face and adhered buttons on the bottom ball.
3. Wrap a ribbon around the neck of the snowman, using a pearl tipped pin to hold it in place.
4. Stack buttons together to make a hat, add a small but of lace around the brim; add molding paste on the top and brim of the hat, sprinkle with glitter while wet. When dry add a small flower.

Today I want to share a fun project I made using a product from Deflecto Craft- Superior Image® Beveled Edge Sign Holder 5x7. This Frame comes apart so that you can easily insert whatever you like inside, then reattach the two pieces. Super easy to switch out the insert when needed.

Today I am using some Smoothfoam 3" Cubes for my ornaments. I used the new Bo Bunny Candy Cane Lane papers for my base on these, then pulled lots of embellies from my stash to decorate them.
Some of these embellies are no longer available I am afraid to say, but it would be so easy for you to pull a whole stack of things from your stash and make something so fun!

I used the new Graphic 45 'Twas the Night Before Christmas paper line to decorate a Maya Road 8x8 Chipboard album. I really wanted the cover to shine- I have had this idea percolating in mind for a while and I am really happy with how it turned out.
Are you still here? I know there are lots of photos here but this was a large album!
We had a great time at the workshop yesterday - but I was so busy I forgot to take photos! This class was sold out- there are not even any kits left. This paper line is available in the store- so if you would like to create something along these lines be sure to pick some up before it is all gone!
Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a fabulous week!
I am so happy to say that I am ahead of the game this year on my Christmas planning! I have been working on some fun and creative ornaments this year and this is the first one.
I used StazOn inks and stamps to stamp in a line around the outside of the ornament, and added a velvet bow for a touch of vintage whimsey.

I have been a bit MIA of late. We are getting new floors in our house and of course this required me to pack most everything in the house up so they could move it.
The worst part had been packing the TEN THOUSAND and 11 pieces of stuff in my studio. Because you know you can't pack that stuff up without looking at it. And looking at it means going through it. And that means getting distracted.
Which means it is taking a lot longer than I planned. Sigh.
I'll be back to creating soon, and blogging all about it. Hope you are keeping warm and dry where ever you are.
