I was inspired by a canvas that Scrappin Friendzee was having a class on. The instructor was Angie Dale. This is the Santa Claus that she used but done on a 12 x 12 canvas instead of a 16 x 20 canvas. I added the reindeer paperpiecings, the antler are pulled away from the canvas, it is hard to tell by the photos. the mustache is also pulled away. The tree was inspired by a card that Mindy in our card swap group made. I did not want to use ribbon so I used paper and then took some puffy fabric paint to make the needles on the pine tree and attached the paper to a real piece of wood. The pointsettia is also made of paper and also pulls away from the canvas along with the holly leaves. Then I layered it several times with Mod Podge and then used a clear sealer.
I had an ornament swap I was invited to tonight, but my friend that invited me was not feeling well so we did not go.
well I woke up this morning before work and decided the box that I bought from Dollar Tree, a gingerbread house shaped box was not going to do. Seen where on pinterest.com someone took wood blocks of wood and created a snowman. Well I decided to do it with cardstock and create a series of boxes that stacked and this is what I came up with, because I was pressed for time I did not get to stickle it on put more embellishments on it.
So I now plan on putting some more embellishment on it. Stay turn for the results.
3 more christmas cards for family or friends. Giving Christmas Cards each year to family, friends and coworkers is something that I really enjoy. The last 6 years I have been making my own cards and this is a challenge sometimes, but for the most part I love each of my cards.
The same pattern I used to make the snowman oranments I used to make these christmas cards. There will be 4 people on my christmas list receiving one of these cards. Do you think you will the lucky one?
Please leave a comment and let me know what you think about the cards.
These 2 ornaments are for my grandbabies. I plan on making each of them an ornament every year for the christmas tree, by the time they leave home they should have a collection of ornaments for their own tree.
There 6 pieces to this snowman. 3 circles different sizes cut from the soda can, branch from the soda can for the arms, and a hat also cut from the soda can, and 2 black brads to hole it all together (eyes). Then I painted it with arylic paints and sealed it with a clear finish.
Made my ghost from white garbage bags, and black construction paper, my little pumpkins are coke cans that were painted orange, and black. I poke holes in the can and put battery operated tea lights, and they glowed at night.
This is one of the small grapevine wreaths that I bought from Dollar Tree. The embellishments are made from aluminum soda cans and painted with a acrylic paints, and spray with a clear coat of varnish.
again I started with a Dollar Tree grapevine wreath... cut out several leaves from the aluminum soda cans, painted with several layers of paint. I did use my stylus to engrave veins in each of the leaves. I do need your comment on this... do you think I should add more to this wreath or leave it along?????? I value everyone's comment.
In the world of scrapbooking I am known by several different names.
Memorycollector is my name for my online group called "The Crop Room".
Paper Piecing Patty is the name that Garnet (MeMe Cat), and the Scrapping Cats started to call me, and everyone at the Scrapbook Cottage.
The Scrappin Packin Mommas, which is a group of 15 ladies in Harvey, Louisiana that meets once a month to scrapbook. Each of the ladies in the group has a momma name, and they named me Momma 411. The name stuck since I am the resourse person of the group.
