JustRite 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hop 8

Good morning everyone.  Today is another JustRite Christmas Blog Hop.  Here are the details:

Welcome to JustRite Stampers’ newest Wednesday feature, 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hops 8! Every Wednesday up until Thanksgiving some of your favorite designers will be joining some of the JustRite design team for a series of Christmas blog hops, showcasing JustRite’s entire Christmas Collection of stamps! And don’t forget that JustRite has some Christmas stamps in their newly released CLING line of stamp sets -- you can find them HERE. This week, the designers joining the JustRite design team are the Flower Soft and The Shabby Tea Room challenge blog design teams! So mark your calendars for Wednesdays at 9am Central for great Christmas gift, card & project ideas, starting at the JustRite Inspiration blog!

For my project I decided to make an ornament for my Christmas tree this year. My Christmas tree has ONLY handmade ornaments. I think it gives such a personal look.

I thought of this as I was making my snowman box (shown here) a few weeks ago.  All I did was create an extra pyramid and adhered it to the bottom of the box.

The photo below shows one of the sides.  The bells are from the "Hearts Come Home" set, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with Copics, and diecut with Spellbinders.

Here is a look at 2 other sides.  The tree is from the "From Our House" set, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with Copics, and diecut with Spellbinders.  The date was stamped using Curlz Number font.

 This photo is a different angle showing the bells as well as a sentiment from "Hearts Come Home", stamped with Memento Danube Blue, and diecut with Spellbinders.

To add some bling, I applied Silver Stickles to all the seams which also helped cover them up. I also added some Kaiser rhinestones around the bottom portion.

I loved home made ornaments on the Christmas tree. The kids enjoyed hanging them up the most. Great project and it is important to put dates on them from year to year.

Linda Beeson said...

I really like your project, pretty neat that you can personalize it so nicely.

Cibele Glazer said...

Your ornament is so cute! I love how you added the bling for some shine and the date. They are fragile but even more meaningful in years to come.
Thanks for sharing! :o)
