CURVY KEEPSAKES HANDBAG!!

I am sure you have seen all the amazing creations around using the Curvy Keepsakes Framelits. They are so clever.  I have been making some projects myself with them and I will show you these another time.  When I first saw the Framelits I thought it would make a cute little handbag. Recently I have seen some floating around the internet.  I thought I would show you my Christmas version – and it uses the set ‘December Wonder’ that I have been focusing on this past week.

I am sorry I didn’t take a side-on view.  It would give you a better idea how it looks.  I will try and update this later. To create the bag I have used some of the Nordic Noel DSP.  I just cut the paper to size to fit half of the Framelit, the section with the curvy handle.  I cut 2 of these out.  Where the base is I trimmed off about 2cm (3/4″).  I added Sticky Strip to one of the bases and assembled the two together.  You can add some little chocolate treats and tie around some ribbon and add a tag.  For this tag I stamped the “Very Merry” in Garden Green and punched it out with the 1″ circle punch.  I cut one of the Oval tags that come with the Curvy Keepsakes framelits from the Gold Foil Sheets and layered them together with a little Real Red banner cut from the Bitty Banners Framelits.  I added 3 small pearls on the tag to finish and hung that from the ribbon with Whisper White Baker’s Twine. A cute treat bag in no time!!

I hope you enjoyed the projects this past week with the ‘December Wonder’ stamp set.  It is a fun set.  This is available in the Holiday Supplement Catalogue but these products are only available stocks are limited.  So get in soon for any of these items.  You can order directly from me or from my store HERE.

I hope you can join me again this week.  I will be away on a Family Holiday but I have some posts scheduled so don’t forget to stop by,

12 WEEKS OF CHRISTMAS – WEEK 7!

Latte 12 weeks Header

It is my week this week to bring you the 12 Weeks of Christmas project.  I am excited to share this project with you.  Today I have made some Christmas Ornaments that you can make to hang on your Christmas Tree this year, or to give as a gift to someone special.

P1140933                P1140754

These were really hard to take photos of and I apologise for the reflection.  I would have spent an hour and a half taking photos inside and out trying to get the best ones.  These turned out the best and I liked them being outside hanging off our bushes as I hadn’t got our Christmas tree up yet – and didn’t want to do that just yet!!! 🙂

I have been looking out for these clear Ornaments for  the past few years but never able to find them but I came across these a few weeks ago. (Thanks Lynda for the tip!)  For locals these were from RIOT Arts and Crafts.  For other people you might be able to get them from your local craft store.

I discovered how to create these from a little blog surfing getting ideas from a few different blogs so today I thought I would show you.

CREATING YOUR CLEAR CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS

1. On a piece of Acetate draw a circle in NON-PERMANENT MARKER. (This is really important so you can wipe this off afterwards).  Add a little square tab piece at the top.  The size of your circle will depend on the size of your ornamment.  These ornaments were about 7cm (just a little less than 3 inches).  The circle I drew was about 6cm (just over 2 inches).  To draw your circle you can trace around a circular object or a circle die.  I used the base of a container.

2. Once you have drawn your circle you can cut it out and then wipe off the marked circle with a tissue.

3. Stamp your image in Staz On on the acetate circle.  This image is from ‘Get your Santa On’.   Now you can’t colour this on this surface with the Blendabilities as it reacts with the Staz On.  Turn over your circle and colour your image from the back with your Blendabilities.  You might be able to see too on my image I added some dots of Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details on the wreath circle and hanging wreath on the chimney to add some sparkle.  This was added on the front of the circle.

P1140696

For the snowflake Ornament I stamped the image in White Staz On.  This snowflake is from the stamp set ‘December Wonder’ from the Holiday Supplement.  (It is marked as a Project Life set but don’t just dismiss these if you don’t do Project Life.  There can still be some great images in these sets).

4. To insert the acetate piece in to your Ornament you need to roll up the piece in to a tight roll and squeeze it in through the top.  Be sure to have the tab piece at the top and hold that as it gets further in to the ornament.  This piece will sit in the top of the ornament to keep the piece in place.  As the circle unrolls you many need to give it a little spin around or you may have to get a pen or the Paper piercer down to jiggle it around in place.

P1140735

You can add some little embellishments in the Ornament as well.  For the Santa one I punched some stars with the Confetti Stars punch from Real Red and Gold cardstock.  For the Snowflake one I added some sequins (snowflakes and silver sequins) from the Frosted Sequins Embellishment pack in the Holiday Catalogue (p 22).  I also added some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter and shook that around in the ornament.  This stuck to the sides of the Ornaments giving it a “snowy” effect I guess.  Then you can replace the cap and tie some ribbon around the top and a ribbon loop for them to hang off your tree.

Now if you are giving this as a gift to someone it would be nice to dress it up a little, so I have a Gift Box for you.  This is using the Kraft Gift Boxes in the Annual Catalogue (p 200).  These Ornaments fit just nicely in them.  You would need to check the size of the Ornaments you are using though.

P1140809

I decorated the sides and top with Designer Series Paper. This is from the Nordic Noel DSP pack from the Holiday Catalogue.

Finish this off with some Red Satin Ribbon and a tag.  This makes a nice gift to give someone.

P1140823

Here is a close-up of the tag.  I used ‘December Wonder’ stamp set again.  The JOY is punched with the oval punch on Real Red.  I cut a label in Garden Green cardstock from the Chalk Talk Dies and then ran that through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder. Then I layered these together. I finished it off with a Frosted Sequin snowflake and a Rhinestone.

HEXAGON DECEMBER WONDER!

Here is another card using the set ‘December Wonder’.  I thought the Hexagon ’25’ would work well with the Hexagon Punch.  I did find a card similar on Pinterest that inspired this card.

P1140934

I punched out some Hexagons with the Hexagon Punch from the ‘Nordic Noel’ DSP and lined them up on the Lost Lagoon piece.  To get the ’25’ in the right position I punched a Hexagon from scrap paper, added some 2 way glue to the back and let it dry a little so it was repositional.  Then I placed it in position in the centre, removed the DSP hexagons and then punched out the shape over the scrap paper one.  The stamped ’25’ was placed behind the Lost Lagoon card using Dimensionals to raise it up a little.  I adhered the rest of the Hexagons in place and stamped the Snowflakes over the card.  This piece was adhered to Whisper White card with Dimensionals and then adhered to the Lost Lagoon card base.  I finished it off with some Rhinestones and Silver Ribbon bow.

Thanks for stopping by to visit today.  Do say ‘Hi’ and let me know where you come from.  I love to hear from you.

Christmas, Classes, Stampin' Up!

DECEMBER WONDER CHRISTMAS!

I was playing around with a new stamp set last week ‘December Wonder’ from the Holiday Supplement Catalogue.  At first I dismissed the set because it was marked as Project Life – and well I don’t do a lot of Project Life and certainly not Christmas. (Did you think that about the set too???).  Then I had another look at it and thought it is still such a great set for your cardmaking. There are some really great images.  I will show you a few projects over the next few days with the set and you can see what you think.

Here are the cards I first made.

P1140726

These cards were inspired by a card on Pinterest that used ‘Endless Wishes’ but I don’t have that set.  (Yes really!).  I stamped the small and large snowflake on the bottom of Whisper White card. Stamped the greeting from the set and then pierced holes around the card with the Paper Piercer and mat.  I tied around some ribbon, added a snowflake embellishment from the Frosted Sequins Embellishments in the Holiday Catalogue and added a Rhinestone to the centre.  Quick cards that you could reproduce in a hurry.

The colours I used were Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake with the Cherry Cobbler Sheer Linen Ribbon and then for the second one Lost Lagoon and Crumb Cake with Lost Lagoon Satin Ribbon.

Here is the stamp set for you to check out if you haven’t already noticed it in the catalogue. 🙂

Stay tuned for some more exciting projects with this set this week.
