Welcome!


I have always enjoyed being crafty. I remember getting really excited about stickers and fun stationary when I was little. Well its good to know that some things in life never change!

I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2005 and have been hooked ever since. My love of crafting has branched out to include DIY, projects, gardening, baking, and canning. I hope to share my projects here.

Glitter Snowflake ornament - Circle Blog Challenge

Hi all!

Today I am sharing an ornament I made for the Cricut Circle Weekly Blog Challenge. I haven't participated in a challenge in quite a while. Making all those Christmas crafts has got me back into the swing of crafting, and I am loving it!

So the requirements for the challenge is two Cricut images and glitter.

Here is my ornament:
Sorry for the dark pictures. The lighting in my scraproom is dreadful. (as is my photographer skills. lol)

Anyway..... I started with a plastic ornament that comes in two pieces that snap together. Mine is from Darice. I layered a teal glitter on the inside of the back piece using floor wax.
I then cut a 3D snowflake from Winter Lace. I actually cut two of each layer to give it some strength. I then glittered the snowflake added some gems and a hanger made from clear thread.
I suspended my snowflake inside the two halves and then glued the ornament shut. I layered a piece of sparkly teal tulle around the seam of the ornament and tied it into a bow at the top. I cut a two-layered snowflake from Art Philosophy and added it to the bow. I also used some twine for the hanger.
It went together fairly fast if you don't count the glitter/glue drying time. lol.

All in all, its a pretty easy ornament to make.

Christmas is almost upon us, and I still have projects I am working on. I also still need to make cookies. eek!

Thanks for visiting today. I am off to get more glitter everywhere. :)

Hope your Holidays are full of glitter too!
