Basket full of Snowballs...
I am working on Holiday Decor for my front porch and I came across these easy snowballs on Pintrest.  All you need is a quick trip to the Dollar Store for a few cheap supplies.  These snowballs took me about 20 minutes and the effect is both rustic and vintage.

I picked up these 8 packs of Styrofoam balls for crafting and Epsom Salts each purchased for $1.25.  I am using a wire basket I already have on hand.  I poured the epsom salts into an old container and added about 1tsp of Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter.  Coat with Modge Podge and dredge through the snowy mixture!


I set the snowballs aside to dry and started working on the tags.  I just got my hands on the new Canadian Paper Manufacture Holiday Style paper from Wild Whispers.  This set has a really rustic style and it's double sided... BONUS!  I cut the Tags and Tab die with mat board and paper.  Then I did a couple mini skates and paper with glittery skate edges.  Assemble and embellish.


Look how many there are!


I used the Stitched Oval cut with chalkboard paper so I could write my 5 cents ;)  


I tucked the tiny Enchanted Dove at the top of the tag packing the Holiday Mini Greens holy.


I used a piece of Holiday Style Card Pack for the skates.  The smaller text and images are perfect.


I love the Hanging Sign and more chalkboard paper.


The tag is clipped on with a hinge clip.



These snowballs look real.


This basket full of snowballs will be a perfect holiday decor addition to my festive porch!

Decorating doesn't have to cost a fortune.  Most of these things I already had on hand... so it cost me about $5.  Look at your stash and see what you can create.

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…
