Ornament Box


This is a gift box I made for my ornament. The basic box pattern is in our Funtime Blue Book.  I then cut an oval for the front and back side to open it up. Cut the sides into a lattice and then lined the sides and bottom with red glitter paper.  Ornament now ready to give as a gift! you could also add a battery power tea light under the ornament and use as a decoration for the holidays.

Holiday Christmas Ornaments


Tree Ornament: I cut the outline frame using Clear Craft Plastic .020 wgt. . I set my knife offset to 40, force at 5 and used my deep cutting blade. I cut 4 passes. I then used BK Gold Glitter paper to cut the frame/background. The tree is chipboard with sookwang tape and Basil glitter. I added embossing glue to the tree and sprinkled more glitter on it for added dimension.
   I like the .020 wgt plastic sheet for tree ornaments, but also used the .007 wgt.plastic for my stocking and snowman.  You don’t need the added weight for cards and Gazelle cuts .007 at Force 3 , and one pass. The size of the ornaments are 3.5" by 3". 
 Adding the glitter paper gives it plenty of additional weight.  The snowman and stocking are also BK patterns.

Thanksgiving 2010 Scrapbook Layout

The time is here to get out all of those fabulous rich color papers of fall! My layout was made with our upcoming Thanksgiving dinner as my subject. Surrounded with my loved ones and as always; too much food!
Page 1 of my layout is a Thanksgiving wreath which I will use also on a few Thanksgiving cards. I used the BK designs: Paisley Bird # 0329D, Oak Leaf #0449D, Flower #0695D and for the Frames: Vintage Tag 2 # 0836D. I use these designs quite often and consider them “must have basics” for my library. Please notice the flower used and what a perfect design to add to your Christmas designs!
Page 2 additional designs used: Platter of Turkey # 0889D, Pie #0482D and the Fancy Daisy 0616D. I made my Turkey and Pie using thick Mulberry paper which my Gazelle cut easily using the adjusted blade holder and a setting of 4, force of 3 and one cut. Make sure your mat is cleaned, sticky and use 1 O-Ring or set the holder up just a tiny amount as you would use for a pen. I used 35 for my knife offset setting.
