Christmas shadowbox

This is a photo was taken in 2004 & it was the last Christmas that my sister and I spent together. In spring 2005 she was diagnosed with Multiple myeloma. She passed away December 2005. I miss you Lydia! I've had this photo in my kitchen window since 2004 and I decided to make a shadow box with it. I scanned the photo onto a digital page and printed it. Then I added the star and jingle bells.

The Holy Family-Kim Bright file

This is my second Kim Bright file & I loved the way it turned out! It took an hour to cut it out and about 4 hours to weed. I just took my time and tried my best.

Two more Nativity projects

The designs from myvinyldesigner.com



Ho Ho Ho candles

I bought these really cool candle holders at the Dollar Tree. I like finding craft bargains there!
The 'snow' is leftover  Epson salt  from my luminaries. I used Yippy Skippy font for the lettering.



Snowglobe charger

I just discovered the blog of Kim Bright. She makes svg designs from a well known stamp company who is delighted to see their stamp designs used in this format. I cut my first design out & placed it on a silver charger. When I work up the courage to do some more of her files I'll be sure to post,lol!


more candles!

These candles were from the Dollar Tree and I simply cut vinyl designs from Lettering Delights Simple Shapes. The smaller ones are simply more glitter jars.



glittered luminaries

Last summer I made the glittered glass ornaments with Pledge acrylic floor polish and Martha Stewart glitter. I decided to do a recycling project with jars. Most of these are Lipton tea jars. I cut out vinyl reindeer on my Silhouette Cameo cutting machine and placed them on the outside of the jar. They are really pretty when the lights are low.



my take on the Epson salt luminaries

I used all recycled glass bottles and jars for this project. The jars were washed,dried and then painted white. After the paint dried, I painted the glasses with mod podge. Then I rolled them in epson salts and let them dry. When the jars were dry I sprayed them with mod podge acrylic sealer spray.


nativity scene, different frame

I made this Nativity frame again with a digital paper & gold vinyl. The background paper for the 12x12 frame was made by Miki Ferkul . Again the vinyl was from Vinylease, an ebay seller. I forgot to mention that the nativity patterns were from MyvinylDesigner.com.


Digital papers & vinyl

This is a Nativity scene that I made for my assistant principal. The background is a paper from a digital designer named Jofia Dafoe. I am not sure where she is selling now. I searched through my digital scrapping kits to find a starry night page. The white vinyl is from Vinylease, an ebay seller.
The doves & peace signs were Jolee's stickers.
