I seen this idea from looking at someone's blog, but I can't remember who. If someone knows, by all means let me know. I bought the small clear square ornaments at Hobby Lobby, there's 6 in a box for $4.99, however they were 40% last week....I should of bought more, next time I will because I sure like the way this turned out. I used my Cuttlebug Scallop large square for the silver and the Cuttlebug Scallop medium square on Borade Blue cs. I used double sided tape. I then used the MS snowflake punch and it's raised using a pop dot. I had these shinny mini snowflake trim, cut the holes off, added them with a pop dot and attached a self stick rhinestone for the centers. I then tied a silver bow and added the silver string for the hanger. I'm making these again......easy peasy! FYI, the CB Scallop Square die cut (large) fits perfect on the square. I did it the same way on all 4 sides. I haven't decided if I wanted to do the same for the bottom.
Accessories:Clear square ornament, CB Scallop Square Die Cuts, MS Snowflake punch, mini snowflakes trim, pop dots, dble sided tape, silver ribbon & string, self stick rhinestones.
Paper:silver glitter paper, brocade blue cs, whisper white cs

This was a different but fun challenge for me. I had fun making this and I knew I wanted to make a shaker ornament so I figured this would be perfect for this challenge which is TLC193 & TLC196. I started this the other day and I was determined to finish it the next day. Since I didn't have to get up the following day and maybe sleep in, I stayed up until 1:00am and finally got it finished. FYI, I didn't get to sleep in neither because I had my youngest daughter saying she wanted to eat cereal at 6:30am.

I've wanted to try and make a mini pizza box. I basically used the same directions but I modified my box and made it smaller than normal. It gave me the chance to use my new Scor-Pal. I don't know why I didn't buy that tool sooner, I just love it. I made this box for the LSC195 Chocolate Challenge. I'm going to either put hot cocoa inside or yummy chocolate. I didn't have any dark brown prima flowers so I took my Timber Brown Stazon and sponged it on a light brown flower.

Ink:Timber Brown Stazon

I wanted to try the corner punch technique so I figured I would try it with the SC203 challenge along with WT193 Pearl challenge. I was given the inspiration by my twin sister (okstamper) to make this card. I enjoyed making this card and it was a different technique for me. Thanks sis!

I wanted to make a "Thinking of You" card for my BIL's 83yr old mother. She had fallen and broke her leg and now she's depressed. Her DH had passed away a few years ago and I think she feels tired and just doesn't want to get out of bed. She's always liked my homemade cards so I thought I would make her this cute image with the teacup.
