The Guest Creators have been hard at work creating holiday magic to share with all of you, so without further ado, let's take a peek!
The multi-colored trees on Audrey's ornament are giving me big Charlie Brown vibes! And her contrasting stitches are such a great way to add in another bright pop of color. Pop over to Audrey's Instagram to read all about her gorgeous ornaments!
I love that Janet paired her snow globe with one of the holly sprigs from the Holly Hearts Details Die! What a great way to incorporate a little extra seasonal flair! Head over to her Instagram to see even more of her kit projects!
I love that Julene's ornament has so much layering and texture. And how cool is it that she incorporated the starflakes from the Snow Flurries Heart Details Die?! Check out this ornament and the rest of her projects over on her Instagram.
Nichol's embroidery hoop is simply stunning! I can't even narrow it down to my favorite part - the whole thing is my favorite part! Make sure to pop in to Nichol's Instagram to read all about it.
This kit has been such a joy to use! Let's jump in and take a look at my projects too!
First up, I have a set of ornaments. I used the Festive Flannel for these and I just loved it.
This first ornament is for our mail man. I decorated the front with a little house and a large tree embellished with bead "ornaments." I freehand embroidered the sky with tiny snowflakes done in white thread. I really love the subtle effect. You could also do French knots if you wanted something even simpler.
I chose to embellish the base of the snow globe with snowflake sequins (included in the kit). I layered them with peachy-toned round sequins for an additional touch of color.
Mr. Steve is well known around here and I thought he should get an ornament specially monogrammed for him this year. I used the Keepsake Ornaments Extras Die to cut the window and then added a Monogram Alphabet letter. I used the Keepsake Dates Die to add the year to the base. I stuffed this one with a layer of chipboard and four layers (two in the front and two in the back) of quilt batting. I hope he likes it!
This next ornament features the three trees tucked together. I used the snowman's hat to create a little gift box that I embellished with an embroidered bow.
I used several of the snowflake sequins to add pizzaz to the sky and dressed up two of the three trees with beads and sequins.
On the back of this ornament I used the "Oh, what fun" sentiment from Snow Globe Messages and embellished with more snowflake sequins. I love this large sentiment! This ornament is stuffed with Polyfil.
The third ornament in this set features the sleigh. Oh, how I adore this sleigh! I actually can't wait to use it on other things too. I'm looking at you, Pocket Tags. Once again, I added little embroidered bows to the packages to give them a little extra life. It's all in the details, you know?
I used the looped design to dress up the snow globe base and then added a sprinkling of snowflake sequins for some sparkle.
On the back of the ornament, I used the "Warm Wishes" greeting from Snow Globe Messages. I also added the date to the base and stuffed the globe with Polyfil and the base with chipboard. I love how this turned out!
My next project is a big one! I knew I wanted to make a banner that I could keep up past the holiday season with minimal side-eye from my loving husband.
I figured if I stuck to snow he might be more willing to overlook some of the more glaringly seasonal details.
I used the Heirloom Color Story plus Lagoon for this banner. I cut "Let It Snow" from Lagoon using the Statement Alphabet Dies. I sewed them together with chipboard inserts inside the letters to give them stability and then set them aside until I was ready to thread everything onto crochet thread.
I used the same Seaspray felt as the background on all of the snow globes. Then I used the other colors from the Heirloom Color Story to add variety to the different snow globes.
On this first one, I used the snowman and the pair of trees together to create a little scene. I decorated the trees with beads and sequins to dress them up a bit. I also did a bit of freehand stitching on the snowman to add his facial features. I love his little smirk! A few snowflakes and sequins round everything out nicely. I also used the looped design on the base and I think it pairs really nicely with this cute scene.
The next snow globe is one of the domed variety. I used the single tall tree with its optional trunk. I used the snowman's hat to make another gift box. This time I used a mix of beads and sequins on the tree to dress it up and then I used a whole mess of snowflakes to really amp up the shine.
The third snow globe features the sleigh again. Gosh, I love that thing. I used a bundle of snowflake sequins, layering some of the larger ones with pale pink round sequins to tie in with the pink gift box. I used the vine design on the base of this snow globe. It looks really pretty without any beading, but I decided to add them because more is more, dang it!
This last snow globe features the little house paired with the two trees. The house has a little cut out die that creates openings for a door and window. You can either layer a solid house with a detailed house, inlay pieces as I've done here, or layer a door and window on top of a solid house. Or just leave it solid! You have options! I added garland to the larger tree and ornaments to the smaller tree and then decorated the sky with sequins and beads. I really love the sprinkling of sequins in there too. They add so much texture and interest! I genuinely can't wait to hang this in my house this year.
I have another set of ornaments to share with you tomorrow before the release goes live, so I hope you'll stop by to see what I have up my sleeve.
