Yuki ornament

Hello!  I feel sometimes scattered wanting to do so many different crafts.  I wish I had this huge crafty room where I had lots of large tables and each table would be designated for a specific craft.  Like sewing, coloring, paper crafting.  Then I wouldn't have to clean up everything to start another project.  Sewing definitely takes up a lot of space with the cutting of fabric, space for the sewing machine and even ironing.  That is the only ironing I am willing to do! 

Anyway, I finished this cute ornament yesterday.  You've probably seen them around blogland ever since PTI introduced their latest kit with the clear domes.  PTI's kits are so enticing with all the fun stuff included in them but they are just too expensive for me especially if I'm not sure I'd be using them often.  But I had seen the clear domes before at my local Ben Franklin store so I knew I could make those ornaments/tags without spending so much money.  Plus the domes come in all different sizes and pretty affordable. 

I colored up Sister Stamps Yuki.  She is one of my favorites!   I used maybe one of the largest ornament domes at the store.  I wanted to be sure that the image would fit nicely.  For the back, I used one of the largest stitched circle dies from Lil Inkers.  I even bought the fake snow from Ben Franklin's too.  These domes come in pairs cause they're supposed to fit together to make a round ornament.  So I have another one that I can play around with.

Here is a side view.  I used Glossy Accents to glue the dome onto the cardstock backing.  Then I added that ribbon all around.  This was a fun and quick craft.  My kids are gonna be making some of these for our annual ornament making tradition.  I bought them smaller ones and they are excited about what they can include in their little dome.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Awwwww, so kawai'i Eva. Yuki is one of my fave SS images too. Totally adorable. Love your ornament a LOT and it'll look great on your tree.

Super cute ornament! I don't think I've been keeping up with PTI. But that's so much smarter to buy your own domes and use your own supplies than paying for the kits!

Such a cute idea....you had your thinking cap on to buy the DIY ornaments to make this. Yuki is adorable and looks like she's ready for Christmas morning!

Wow! You are so clever and how nice of you to mention our store. I am going to head over there soon and get some of the dome ornaments to make some like yours. I have the glass ones to fill but the half plastic ones never appealed to me until now. Thanks for the great idea!

Oh I hear you on having a big craft space. That will always be on my wish list. hahaa!
Ohhhh my goodness Eva!! I am totally going to case this!! This is the cutest ornament! I love that you closed the back, it's like a 2 for 1 deal. So smart! Any Yuki, who is also one of my favorites, is perfect. This is super sweet.
Oh I hope they have them at Michael's or Joann's!! Thanks for sharing this terrific idea.

What a cute idea. I like how you can substitute items to make them look like the real deal while saving $. This would look adorable on a Christmas tree!

Snowman gift card holder

Hi!  I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences.  It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts.  I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one.  It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch.  The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card.  I added this fun card that I stamped.  You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks.  I hope I can make more of these little guys.  These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them. I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand? This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful. I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.
