THE Christmas Ornament....

The 3-D Christmas ornament on the front of the SU Holiday catalog, was a "must try" for me.  I had grand plans of making one for each and every one of my crafty friends, BUT..... they are really, really time consuming and I think I managed to create 6 of them.....  It features the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set with it's matching framelits, a LOT of time, a significant amount of glue, and even MORE significant amount of glitter, and several sticks of glue for your hot glue gun! :)  As much work as they are, the final result is stunning!  Well worth trying, all though you might want to start in July rather than November...  For a step by step tutorial, visit any number of You-tube videos out there right now -- such as this one. :)  Maybe someday when both of my kids are in school and I have endless amounts of time on my hands :), and I'm not working :), I'll do You-tube videos, too! LOL

I tried several different color combinations, including Baja Breeze with Navy, Pink Pir with Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green and Cherry Cobbler, and some Rich Razzleberry and Certainly Celery ones, which haven't been completed yet. :)  The one featured here is Pink Pirrouette and Cherry Cobbler -- made for my Seattle friend who has a fun display of pink ornaments from her late grandma.  I thought this ornament would go perfectly with her collection -- AND it's a nice change from the traditional red and green... 

Happy Holidays to you and yours!
