Decorating for the Season

ECD_winter_Candy_Spiegel7When I packed away the Christmas, my house felt naked. So, I decided to decorate a bit for winter. I made a little wreath for my door, hung up snowman kitchen towels, and made this adorable little winter banner.

Visit the Elizabeth Craft Designs’ Blog today to see how I did it.


Snowman Ornament Class

Snowman ornamentThere is still room in Saturday’s ornament class … this is a great gift idea for you, a teacher, grandma, the kids or anyone who loves snowmen. Older kids are welcome as long as mom stays … we use a heat tool in this class and it can burn!

Colors and embellishments can be completely customized.

Here’s another example …

Snowman Ornament

Today is a quick post … I’m off to Sunset Shores for the weekend where I will be cropping and teaching four classes! Each of the classes is completely different — we’re making a card, an ornament, a mosaic page and an altered spoon. I still have lots to pack and get ready for the event, but I wanted to share the ornament we’ll be making …

This is a group of experienced croppers, so I expect lots of variations on my sample, but we’ll all be starting with a snowman ornament from Globecraft Memories. (If they aren’t available in your area, click on the link to the right to order direct.)

I used a bit of paint and flock to cover the snowman (and discovered after the fact that I should have painted the snowman white so the flock remained white!). For the background, I painted the globe and then added Pure Sparkle Silver glitter.

For this frame, I kept it simple and just used Mermaid Tears Enamel Powder.

The insert and little Piccolo pieces are painted with Cool-Set Enamel. The leaves are coated with Mossy Glen Enamel Powder.

After I finished the pieces, I coated the ring and accents with Glastique for a durable shine.

I think he’s cute and I cannot wait to see what spin my friends put on theirs.
