Easy Christmas Ornaments, Fun New Samples, Challenge & CK Show Coupon for WA!

Hi Everyone,

I have a bunch of quick ideas for Christmas ornaments today, some great new samples, links to the Splitcoast challenge and a $3.00 discount coupon for the Creating Keepsake Show we will be at this weekend in Bellevue WA with DT Leader Vicki Chrisman!

I'm sorry, I planned to post Kewpie samples and the Spiltcoast Challenge and the week just ran away from me. I will post the Kewpie creations this week and I will have a great free printable! Lori Lynn Washburn is hosting a Crafty Secrets Favorite Things Challenge over at Splitcoast and I'm tardy telling you about it but you can still post a sample using any of your favorite embellishments with Crafty Secrets products. Here is Lori's very pretty card she created with an image from our Little Blessings Creative Scraps and she picked to use seam binding and a crochet butterfly. Get details HERE and see Gallery HERE!

Now I have a variety of fun & fast Christmas ornaments to show you. DT leader Vicki Chrisman created this one and a bunch more using our Christmas Creative Scraps with Fancy Pants Artist Edition Metal Frames you can see HERE on Vicki's blog. Plus, you can enter the giveaway she has for a great planner. 

Vicki is coming to the CK Show to work in our booth and I ordered a huge amount of these cool metal frames to sell at the show because she's made so many great samples using  our Birds & Blossoms Scraps HERE and with our Vintage Photos posted HERE. They are easy because each frame comes with a little paper pattern template you simply lay over an image and trace around it. Glue it in the frame and add embellishments! I love the weight of these frames and the styles!

Below is 1 of the Christmas ornaments Vicki made last year using little boxes from the $1.00 store and some frames from Tattered Angels Framed Fonts pkg. The glitter she added makes them extra festive. See all 6 ornaments from last Dec and get the details HERE on Vicki's blog.  UPDATE - Vicki just posted cute new ones HERE she sprayed with Glimmer Mist! She didn't use the little boxes so our double sided Christmas Scraps work great front and back!

Here is a really pretty ornament DT member Heidi Blankenship made using a birdie image from our Christmas Scraps with Tattered Angels frames. You can see more samples and get the details HERE on Heidi's blog. If you don't have any little boxes, just use our double sided Scraps and when the ornament spins around it will have an image on the other side already!

Here's another ornament from last year that DT member Melissa Phillips created using the same little chipboard frames from Tattered Angels with cute kids from our Christmas Image Booklet and pink glitter glued on the frame.

We have some Sweetchips Mini Chipboard Frames but they are not as cool as the embossed ones from Tattered Angels. I do love this idea that past DT member Janel had to hang a double sided photo or image inside one of our little chipboard frames. She stitched it on to hang by a piece of thread, so it spins.

Talking about mini frames, look at this sweet one that DT member Michele Kovack decorated with an image and words from our Vintage Photo Creative Scraps. You can see her other little keepsake friendship ornament HERE on Michele's Blog.

DT member Pam Hooten rocked this card using our new Little St. Nick Clear Art Stamps! I love the way she colored the stamp and the Jenni Bowlin papers she used. You can get the details HERE on Pam's blog and she explains what Copic markers she used and techniques.

Anna Wight is our November DT Guest Designer and she just whipped up this darling card using the little winter girl from the inside of our Christmas Creative Scraps. This girl is already colored but we also have her as a stamp on our SM27 Season's Greetings stamp set.

Lastly, look at this beautiful card DT member Julie Campbell created using the little girl and Country Girl lettering stamps from our Down on the Farm set. She popped the girl up over an image from our double sided Garden Scraps and colored her to match perfectly! You can get the details and see a close up HERE on Julie's blog.  Also check out the wonderful card HERE she created using our Sew Nice Creative Scraps.

Okay, I will be back with the Kewpie samples and a great free printable image for you this week.  We leave Thursday to set up for the Creating Keepsakes Show in Bellevue, WA Fri & Sat Nov 12 & 13/10 and we are bringing EVERYTHING but the kitchen sink!  There will be clearance items, little gifts with your first purchase, loads of inspiring samples - and of course ... the talented Vicki Chrisman on hand doing demos and we all want to meet and  greet you (if you live close enough)!  I even have a $3.00 discount coupon off admission you can print.

Wishing you joy & creativity
