Larger Christmas Ornaments

Here are the two larger ornaments I made during our Christmas Ornament Classes.  I do still have a couple of kits left if you want to purchase the kits and make these yourself.  I'm still putting the tutorial together, so bare with me.  

Again, I used non-Stampin' Up! papers (trying to use up some papers before I became a demonstrator!), some tulle (Early Expresso) and retired Stampin' Up! framelits to make these.

I hope you enjoy these as we're going through some hot weather here in Branson.  Thinking and working on Christmas crafts has not helped keep me cool!  But I'm going to keep making Christmas items in preparation for our Christmas rush in September!

Happy Crafting,


Class Reminder

Today's class, from 1-4 PM, at Desiree's Craftroom, located inside the Branson Mill Craft Village, will be these four cute Christmas Tags and holder.  These would make a great gift for that someone special or for yourself!

Be sure to come in and craft with us today!

Smaller Ornaments

I didn't make it back yesterday, as you can see!  But here is the promised smaller ornament I made during the Christmas Ornament Class.  These are really fun to make, once you get the process down!

I used some non-Stampin' Up! papers because these were single sided papers and you don't see the backside of the paper anyway.  This is another way to use up all the single sided papers you may have.  

I added a gold Stampin' Up! Glimmer snowflake to the center and then added a Merry Christmas banner.

I will be making more of these so if you want to come in and watch, just let me know you're coming so I have some ready to put together!

Happy Crafting,

Did You Know?

I plan a demonstration of some technique or fold each day I'm in Desiree's Craftroom at the Branson Mill.  I usually start at 1 pm.  If I have a class scheduled and no one comes in, I then do a demonstration on what we would have done in class!

Stop in and see what I'm demonstrating today!  If I don't have anything planned, then you can request a demonstration. What is giving you trouble?  A particular style fold or what adhesive to use for which project?  

Let me know and I will answer your questions.  If I don't know the answer, I have litterally thousands of other Stampin' Up! Demonstrators to ask!

Later today I hope to post another one of the Christmas ornaments I made yesterday in our Ornament Class, so come back soon!

If you missed yesterday's Ornament Class, don't worry!  I have another one scheduled for Sunday, the 23rd, from 1-4 pm.

If you would like to schedule a class, just give me a call or stop in and see me!  I have Christmas Cards all ready so you can start making yours today!  I also have everyday and Birthday cards ready to make.  

Here are some of the cards I have ready for you!

Christmas Ornament Class

I have been super busy with my grandchildren visiting for the last two weeks, that I haven't been posting my event reminders!  Tomorrow, from 1-4, I will be hosting an Ornament Class.  This class is $24.95 and you will be making one ornament, using the Delicate Ornament Dies from Stampin' Up!  

Here are a couple of samples I've made in the past.


You can get as elaborate as you want, adding twine and tulle. You can also stamp images and then die cut.  For this class, we will be using single sided papers that are already die cut for you!

If you have a glue gun, you may want to bring it so we don't have to wait in line for mine!  All other supplies are provided.

I hope you can join me tomorrow!
