Candy Cane!

Hello everyone!  here is another project that I created for the SmoothFoam blog hop.  I created this candy cane by using one of the SmoothFoam ornaments.  I used some paper from the Robin's Nest, which is the Red Glitter Stripe.  I then distressed the edges with my distressing tool to give it a tattered look.  I also added some moonstone diamond dew drops to each side of the candy cane.  I then made my own hook to hang it with.  I used some crystal rondell beads and a green pearl.  I made the hook out of wire.  I really like how this came out.  It was so fun and easy to do.

Smoothfoam Topiary

Hello everyone welcome to the Smoothfoam Blog Hop! 

 Today I have created a topiary using one of the Smoothfoam 2 1/2" Balls.  This was a fun and very easy project to do.

 I started with added several flowers, which I hot glued to the ball.  I then added some lace, which I made into 2 bows.

 I painted the wood dowel that I attached the ball to one end.  I then used some flat back pearls that I twisted around the dowel.

 I then made my own flower pot out of chipboard.  I then decorated the pot with some paper from The Robins Nest.  The paper I used is the Black and White Glitter Pine Tree paper, which I used the other side which is green.  I then used some white cardstock and used a snowflake punch to make a boarder for the top.

 I then added some lace and light green pearls.  I then used the snowflake punch outs to decorate the paper.  This was so fun and easy to do!  I hope you have enjoyed my project for this hop.

Circle Mini

Hello Everyone!  Thanks for stopping in today to check out my DT Project for today.  This project was so fun to make.  I wanted to do something different and I think I managed to do that.  What I have done is a circle mini and put it on a candle stick, that I flipped upside down.  This mini also has pockets and in each pocket is a small tag.  The tags can be used for more pictures or even journaling.  There are eight pages and each page has 3 spots for pictures or journaling.  So let me tell you what I have done.  I took a piece of Red Snowflakes card stock, I used the back for the album, which I made into a meandering album, kinda anyways.

 Instead of making into a book, I turned it into a circle, by bringing the 2 end pieces together and attaching them to make a pocket as well.  I then took another piece of the Red Snowflakes Card stock and made some flower rosettes in different sizes to make a Christmas tree.  I then attached a blue snowflake on the side of the tree.

 The top of the tree I added a bead spacer and a large pearl.  I also punched out some white flowers and added some gold dew drops to the centers.  I then punched out some border strips using the punch from Tonic Studios, which you can find over at Purple Cows website.

The candle stick holder I turned upside down and attached some cheesecloth and then added some pine cone and berry clusters.  I used the stems and curled them up and added them in just the right places.  I love the way this came out and it will be perfect for any center piece during the holiday season.  I hope you have enjoyed my project today, and don't forget that the paper I used is on sale over at The Robins Nest and its 20% off this month.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Scrapping!!

Pocket Mini - DT Project for The Robins Nest

Hello Everyone!  Today I will be sharing a Pocket Mini that I created.  These are great for gift giving.  They are small and will fit in just about anything.  This month we have on sale, over at The Robins Nest, some awesome Christmas Papers.  So let me get started on what I have created.  I took a 12 x 12 sheet of Black and White Holly cardstock to form the pocket mini.  I then took a Black Glitter Snowflake, along with a die cut from Gina's Designs.  I also used a punch by Tonic Studios for a border at the bottom, and I placed some white dew drops as embellishments. The punch I used is called the floral strip punch. On the inside of the mini I used some lace from my stash and made some tags for the pockets, which I also used the border punch to decorate the tags.  I didn't do alot of embellishing with this because I wanted it to be able to fold up flat.  To keep the mini closed I used some black ribbon.  I also used black chalk ink to distress some of the edges.  This is a fun and very easy project.  You can do several of these to make as gifts.

I hope you have enjoyed my post today and check back on Sunday for a very different type of mini!!

Thanks so much and Happy Scrapping!!!
