Cone Ornaments

My Cone Wreaths that I posted a little while back were a hit!  So I had this idea to make these into ornaments.  I've done these a long time ago, so wanted to refresh the ornament.

I was sitting in the doctor's office, curling 3 inch and 2 inch squares.  For those wondering what I was doing, here is the finished products.  I used Stampin' Up! papers, the new Foil Snowflakes, and some of my favorite stamp sets.  

Here are the 2" ornaments done both ways:

If you would like to learn how to make these, contact me to schedule a class.  In this class, I would have you make two ornaments -- one with cones towards you and one with cones reversed.  I like both ways and hope you do too!

Happy Crafting,

Need Christmas Cards?

Today's share is a card I made last year but added some "bling" to it.  As you may recall, I made this card and offered it as a class.  Well, I have lots of supplies still cut so I'm offering you the opportunity to come in at your leisure and make some cards! 

Each card can be different by switching out the papers and/or ornaments.  You will be able to use my Big Shot and Ornament dies to embellish your cards.  If you want more bling, you can even add rhinestones or pearls to each center ornament!

I like to do classes after lunch, so anytime after 1 PM - provided I don't have a class scheduled (check my Upcoming Events tab), you are welcome to come in and make these cards.   Each card will be $2.50.  You decide how many you want to make.

Happy Crafting,

Two More Days!

We only have two more days to take advantage of Stampin' Up! stamp sale.  In case you forgot or missed the post, here are the stamp sets that are on sale.

Remember, though, if you want the coordinating dies/punches, you will save even more money by ordering the bundles!

I'm sorry to report that Fast Fuse is not available.  We had such a resounding response to this sale, that Stampin' Up ran out of a 2 year supply in five days.  YES, FIVE days!  Don't worry though, as soon as more comes in, Stampin' Up! will offer this for another FIVE days so we will have the opportunity to purchase for the whole 10-day period.

If you missed out on World Card Making day, don't worry!  I still have a few supplies left.  Just come in and let me know this is what you would like to do.  

Also, I updated my Events tab to include an Explosion Scrapbook class.  If you plan on attending, please RSVP so I have enough supplies cut.  I have a couple of ladies coming in from out of town that want to make one of these.  Come join in the fun!

Happy Crafting,
