Crafty Secrets Christmas Challenge!

Good Monday Morning!
It's Crafty Secrets challenge time and our challenge this month is Christmas! I can't believe it's so close. Are you ready?
I got this wood snowflake at Hobby Lobby last year after Christmas when all of their stuff is on sale. I love Hobby Lobby and after season sales are the best! Anyway, I sprayed it with Snowflake Glimmer Mist and put some glitter on. I punched a bunch of flowers out of old book pages that I sprayed with Candy Apple Red & Vintage Pink Glimmer Mist. I glued the flowers around the back of the snowflake so they are peeking over the edge.
I used the Christmas Postcard Kit, a chipboard postcard and a Santa image and I put red pom-pom trim around the edge. I glued red buttons on the snowflake points.

I made this embellishment with chipboard and images in the kit. I glued the beads in the center of the rusty snowflake, it's from Hobby Lobby too.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~My next project is some ornaments I made using the Christmas Creative Scraps. I have had more fun using these Creative Scraps since Sandy introduced them. I have found so many uses for them especially in my altered projects, I love them!
I punched my image with a circle punch and adhered it inside the vintage candy mold with Glossy Accents. I covered the image with Glossy Accents and sprinkled on some glitter. The edge of the mold has Martha Stewart snow glitter on it. The little embellishment on the edge was made with some old pinecone picks from a yard sale. I added the berries, bell and button.

This one was made the same way, but I used a square punch and glued the bow on the back.

I got these molds at a flea market. They were a great find in almost perfect condition!

Make sure you check out the DT blogs and see what they did. Darlene Pavlick is our guest designer this month, welcome Darlene!
