Holiday Sneak Peak Grand Vacation Blog Hop For August


Thank you for visiting me for this month's hop!  I am so excited about all the new products in the holiday catalog.  I wanted to make gifts and holiday decorations with the product I just received.  I hope you enjoy my projects!  It was so much fun making everything.

Leaf earrings

Acorn earrings

The above earrings were made with the Into the Woods Elements.  To make post earrings attach the elements to a post backing using jewelry glue.  After it is dry use an earring backing to attach the earring to the card.  I used the Deco Labels Framelits to make the cards to attach the earrings.  One package of elements will make 5 pairs of leaf earrings and 5 pairs of acorn earrings.


The above tree is so retro which is so huge right now!!!  I loved it because I used a styrofoam cone for the base and attached the leaves from the Season to Season Wreath kit.  The leaves were attached with mini glue dots (three on the top of each piece).  Two stars were punched out of red glimmer paper and attached together with mini glue dots.  Mini glue dots attached the star to the top of the tree.  The tree was then decorated with red pom pom trim and cording trim. 


The above ornament is made using a small styrofoam ball.  The 1/8" Striped Ribbon was wrapped around the ball using Tear and Tape adhesive.  I put two pieces of adhesive all the way around the ball and then wrapped the tape.  I poked the end into the ball with the tip of scissors, used a mini glue dot to push the end of an ornament hanger in the ball.  Coordinating ribbon was tied in a bow around the top.  A great tree ornament or to hang in between a banner.

Thank you for stopping by today.  The supplies to make the projects are in the Holiday catalog.  I hope you will visit all the demonstrators on this hop.  Subscribe to my blog so you will not miss out on any future projects.  Please scroll below  below to hop to other demonstrator blogs.  You will not want to miss out on the following demonstrators!!!  They have all earned trips and are totally awesome!!!
