  • Stampin' Up is now selling project kits, and the first kit became available today. Check it out here.
 And finally... today's Countdown to Christmas to brought to you by this service announcement... there is just TWO days left to purchase the Ornament Keepsakes bundle (set, patterned paper, and optional framelits add-on) and receive a coordinating Festive piercing pack for FREE!  What can you do with these wonderful coordinating products?  Well, besides making quick and beautiful Christmas cards, how about the ornament on the cover of the seasonal catalog?

Here I created the ornament as a wine bottle tag, which can then be saved for the Christmas tree.  Perfect gift for friends, neighbors, and co-workers!

And here is the backside.

My first pass through, it took me about two hours (digging out supplies, stopping to pick up my kiddo from the bus, etc.), so you could make a few of these in an afternoon.  In fact, I'll be holding a class in December so we can make these together.  Make sure you grab your bundle and Tombo multipurpose liquid glue by October 31, and the class is FREE!

Stamps: Ornament Keepsakes, Christmas Lodge; Paper: Very Vanilla, Candlelight Christmas DSP; Ink: Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Cherry Cobbler marker; Accessories: Cherry Cobbler Tulle, Jumbo pearl, Faceted Vintage button, Linen thread, Dazzling Diamonds, 1-3/8" Circle punch, 2-1/2" Circle punch, Holiday Ornaments framelits, Big Shot, Glue gun.

8 more weeks to go...  thanks for stopping by!
