Dawns Crafting Merry Christmas Candy

Dawn over at Dawn's Crafting is sharing the Christmas spirit and giving away some surprise Christmas Candy to one lucky commenter on her blog. I wanted to spread the love and send you guys over to visit her blog. Please stop by & take a look at her wonderful creations.

Here is a Christmas card that Dawn recently made & featured on her blog. I love how she did it in B&W.


Creativity Heals Design Team Project

Hello all, I'm sharing my Design Team project for Creativity Heals. This project is a box that I built and decorated for a box swap that I just participated in. The girl I swapped with should have received it by now(USPS shipping confirmation shows that she did) so I feel confident sharing the pictures with you. I had SO SO SO much fun making this box. :) The instructions said to use 12x12 chipboard & to cut it into individual pieces for each size then to glue the pieces together...HOWEVER, I live in the middle of no-whereville and my craft store(Michael's) doesn't carry plain chipboard in 12x12 sheets. Instead I went to the art supplies & bought illustration board...I actually liked it better because it was in a larger size & more sturdy than chip board. I cut my width(8" in this case) and then used my razor knife to score the lines to make the panels. After all my panels were scored I folded them to make the box. I then cut the end pieces & glued those in place. I printed the music paper on my Imagine machine & used ModPodge to adhere it to the box. I then painted the inside of the box with a shimmer paint that I mixed up myself. I lined the box with a velvet ribbon& then used some beads to finish off the sides where the ribbon is folded over the edges & the top edge of the ribbon inside the box. I am very pleased with how this came out & plan on making more in the very near future... I had a ton of fun making it, it was SO EASY!

I used the Snowman and the card base from the Winter Woodland Cartridge and patterns from Industrial Glow. All the cuts were made at 7" I used my Xyron for adhesive. the card bases I sent through my Creatopia, the smaller pieces I sent through the smaller Xyron machines. :) I <3 Xyron!

For the hop today, I've created .......

Glitter Christmas Ornaments.
These are quite simple, actually but they were REALLY fun to do :)
I started with clear glass ornaments, used spray adhesive(on some I used 3M, others I used Aileen's) and then I poured glitter into them & swished it around. I had to add glitter to some as I didn't have enough, but once they were fully covered, the excess glitter could just be poured out of the ornaments. I'm having so much fun with these & I'm going to be making more, personalizing them & putting designs on them as well. But this is my first step...sweet and simple. Hope y'all enjoy!

sorry my photos are sideways, I'm on a borrowed computer & don't have editing capabilities... :(
