Hi all, i am stopping by to share some fun handmade ornaments i made using a large diecut (adorable snowman) and fussy cutting out images (sled and ice skates) from the winterland paper.
I first, punched and cut them out of the paper and punched holes near the tops where i want my ribbon to tie onto. Next, i placed the images on wax paper to keep from sticking while drying cause here is the fun part. Squeeze an even thick layer of dimensional glue over the entire image. (Tip-do not shake the dimensional glue as not to get bubbles and keep tip down in glue while covering images to keep a smooth cover).

Then, i sprinkled iridescent fine glitter to the wet glue. I then repeated on the other images and let dry overnight then covered the other side with just the glue to make for a nice thick dimensional ornament.
Lastly, i added a pretty ribbon to each and hung on my tree. I just love the vintagey look they have to them!
These would make great gifts too! Make sure to get your hands on some winterlandso you can give this a try. Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!

I always need a lot of gift card holders this time of year. I think it's fun to make my own to make giving a gift card a bit more personal. Today I'm sharing 3 gift card that can be made pretty quickly with Happy Pawlidays.
I started by creating envelopes just large enough to fit my gift card (2 1/2" x 3 1/2"). I used the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board, but you can use any tool you like for creating envelopes. I scored every side, except for the top flap. I left the top flap unscored and opened so it can be attached like a tag to a present.
I kept the embellishments minimal. Just a few strips of patterned paper,
and a sticker here or there.
The best part is that these can be customized to any size gift card...because there are just a few of my favorite stores that make bigger, shaped gift cards! Have a wonderful Christmas!
We have a fun Holiday challenge going on! Find it here.
Sometimes memories are so special that they require more than one page to tell the full story. Prom is certainly one of those times! It's a time where every little lady gets to be a princess.
Vicki had pre-prom photos taken of her dress and the photographer had a great time playing with her unique style. Tamara Fischer of Something Photography keyed in on Vicki's Converse Allstars and used them to transform Vicki into a 21st century Cinderella.
I used Moxxie's Night to Remember to capture this beautiful moment. I used rub ons from the Night to Remember collection as my journalling. For a little more bling, I added sequins to the stars.
As an additional decorative touch, I included an up and coming trend - fringe! The tassels are made from embossing thread folded over a small bit of jewelry wire and anchored with brads.
I love the motion and life that the tassels add to the layout. To learn about this and other up coming trends, head on over to the show notes for episode 42 of the Scrap Owl Podcast.
So, what do you think? Loving the tassels? Loving the layout? I'd LOVE to hear your thoughts! Let us know in the comments below.
Hi, Joan here today with a scrapbook layout about our dog, Chiquita. She has always loved to snuggle in lots of blankets when it's cold outside. My daughter took this picture a few years ago. I think Chiquita looks like she is dreaming - possibly of snow - or even Santa!
This layout uses papers and die cuts from the new Winterland line. The background paper is from the older Winterland collection. They mix together wonderfully!
Christmas is quickly approaching! If you haven't yet "decked your halls," then you better get to it! Today I'm going to share a fun way to take a simple item and make it festive.
I began with simple battery operated candles that I found in packs of two at my local Dollar Tree store. That's right, TWO candles that can be placed in windows, on mantels, or anywhere really, for just ONE DOLLAR! Great deal!
The candles lift out of the base, and the flame tops screw completely off, making decorating the actual candle very simple. I used Happy Pawlidays, some burlap, and a few buttons to take them from simple to spectacular!
Are you enjoying the holidays so far? It really is the most wonderful time of the year!
The holidays are best when shared with those we love and I wanted to share a card I made, for Moxxie that is perfect for a "Special Someone".
Isn't this fun?? I am soooooo in love with the Moxxie paper with the pink heart graphic on the left! It has such a depth of colors and textures! To make it a bit more masculine I added the black Moxxie diecut paper on the right and the gold stickers.
Enjoy spending time with your "Someone Special" this holiday season!!
Hello! I'm so happy to be up on the blog today to show you this super cute layout I made using the fun Happy Pawlidays line!
We don't have any pets around our place but that did not slow me down on thinking of all the fun ways I could use this adorable line. Here's a cute layout I made of my little guy:
My kids thoroughly enjoyed making a gingerbread house that year and, not surprisingly, my little 3yr old, sweet tooth enjoyed eating the candies! It looked just like he'd gotten into someone's make-up when he was done, so we had him pucker up for a picture.
I started off with the backside of Santa's Little Helper for my base, then layered a section of the front side and Merry Christmas on it. The piece along the top is the barcode strip from Merry Christmas.
I then took the top corner of Define Naughty and fussy cut the flourishes so the corner of my photo would slide under.
Then I went to work on my title. I was going to do Gingerbread Kisses, cutting 'Kisses' out of the Pugs & Kisses sticker, but wanted to use a bit more of the line. That's when I noticed the Tis the Season cut out. I didn't really want the cute little doggies tho, so I cut just above their heads and it made for the perfect title. I layered Kisses onto a back portion of Define Naughty and used Moxxie's Brown Alpha for the rest of the title.
I alternated strips of the front and backsides of Define Naughty for my journaling and then added more of the stickers. A bit of inking and pen outlining really makes your papers and stickers pop.
