KinderstampO's Christmas Hop


Welcome...need some DIY Handcrafted Ornament idea's?  Well, I do have a few on my blog for you.  OK get ready for LOTS of idea's on here.  I have started with a Tim Holtz Tag and I am finishing a TH Tag.  These I made last week for this hop.  The rest I made 13 years ago for my Christmas Tree and they still go on my tree today.

You should be arriving from Celine's Blog.  If you are just getting started then you'll want to start at KinderstampO's Blog.  I will try to keep it low on the chat since there are a lot of photo's!

Here is my TH Tag.  I particpated in the this years (my first) 12 Tags of Christmas.  I made this tag #10 for my mom with phot's of her parents.  My Grandafather passed away a year ago December 19th.  This tag she will put on her tree as I have done on mine.  To chech out this tag in more detail click HERE to see how I made it.

I added WISH using Scrable pieces, then used MS Glitter Glue as icicles.

Here I recreated ornaments using photo's of my Grandparents on their wedding day and my grandfather on his fish boat.  Very cool to use old photo's!

My grands on their wedding day!


OK here I have a selection of ornaments I made one year when my kids were teeny tiny!  I used plywood and my jigsaw to cut all these wooden ornaments.  I then painted them all and to this day they hang on my tree!

Cinnamon and glue arnament, painted and tied with a bow.

I layered this mitt and added a wooden button.

Stocking with Heart

I also tried some modeling clay.

Christmas Tree

This Santa I painted has always been my favorite!

I also made a mantle piece to match my tree ornaments.

My tree is full of handcrafted ornaments I made and my kids.  It is also full of ornaments that were gifts and now my new 12 Tags of Christmas. 



Here is my 2nd Tag I made for this Hop.  This one is Tag 9.

Again using the Scrabble pieces and a gear embossed and distressed.  The tag is stamped, embossed and distressed.


I hope you made it all the way down here to see all the ornaments.  I have made many of them over the years.  Thanks for hopping by you're now ready to head over to Pam's blog.

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

New Release- Stamp and Photo Storage

All month the Inspiration Team for Eileen Hull is thrilled to be showing off the her newest Book Club Collection.  Here's my little glimpse at the Stamp and Photo Storagedie.  There is nothing this decent size die can't do... or hold!  In this case Letter's to Santa.  I even combined the Trinket Box & Frame to frame out Santa.


I stamped the Woodland Winter Santa designed by yours truly onto watercolor paper and used my Scribble sticks to add a little color.
I cut a piece of clear packaging and ran it through my little Xyron Disposable Sticker Makerto create a cover for my Santa.  Perfection!

I colored up the Floral Arch and Words arch to attach to the bottom and top and attached.  I used some Distress Woodgrain Cardstock to wrap my Stamp and Photo Storage. I cut Super StockCardstock to fit inside.  Inking and stamping like crazy all tied off with some postal twine.  The Correspondence Stamp Set is perfect.


I mounted the Trinket Box & Frame to the Stamp and Storage…

Snow Scene Cloche

Sometimes it starts with an idea... like silver rich brush bottle trees.  OH YA IT DOES...
Do you remember the ghostly cloche... well I am repurposing the cloche for Christmas.  Why buy more when I can use it again by simply creating a removable base.

There's the empty cloche and a new cut out base.  Gather a bunch of trees and ink up some glittery paper for die cutting.

More inking and die cutting the Snowman Scene snowman then assemble this adorable snow stopping snowman.  I had some left over gold deers from last year so I snapped them up for a little added gold.

Here's the inspiration... this brushed pewter brush bottle trees.  Once dry brush some distress collage medium coating the trees and coat in distress glitter.

They look like flocked Canadian trees.  Too add more gold I inked up an adornment star with alcohol ink topped to the tree.

Mini Holiday Green cut and the little berry's in more gold.  I rolled up woodgrain paper to look like wee logs.  Then wrapped the b…
