Christmas Frame Ornament

Welcome to another Craftwork Cards Candi
for my project to day I made this cute Christmas frame ornament.  I bought this Kraft Frame from Hobby Lobby.  I wish I would have bought more of them there is soo much you can do with these cute little frames. I found in the Christmas Craft section at Hobby Lobby for $1.00 on sale. 
Below I used some Tim Holtz distress stain on the sides and the back  of the frame. I then usd Simple Stories 25 Days of Christmas for the front of the frame, cut out the center of the frame with my craft knife  and cut a image with the stocking inside the frame.

I then added embellishments to the frame I used the Craftwork Candi hot glued them on the frame, cut a banner from My Favorite Things banner, used Prima button  hot glued it to the , Martha Stewart punch for the branch. then added some ribbon, Waaa Laaaa the finished product below.

Thank you for dropping in and visiting my blog. You can buy the Craftwork Candi from The Scrapbooking Queen Royal Shoppe and they are at a good price.

Christmas Tree Tag with Candi Ornaments

Happy Fall Thursday,
Today I show casing a couple of Christmas tags I made using the Candi ebellishments. I love the Candi embellishments they are awesome and come in soo many colors, and there are soo many ways you can use them on your cards, layouts. Thought I would get started on some Christmas tags, below are my cute tags I love how they turned out. The Candi on the tag below is called Coffe Bean
I put some lace ribbon to give it a vintage look and the paper just adds the right touch.

The Candi on the tag below is called Icing Sugar . I thought of a Christmas tree with white ornaments against the paper from Bo Bunny would give it a wintery feel. The cute banner is from My Favorite Things die and used some gold ink to color the baner. I used My Creative Time Tag dies, ribbon on top of the tag is from Liz's Paper Loft, Garland on tree I found at Hobby Lobby along with the brown ribbon on the bottom of the tag. The cute little picture on the tag is from my most favorite paper line Graphic 45.
Below is what I used on my projects, be sure to visit their blog and see what other kind of goodies they have.

Welcome Welcome to Washi Up Wednesday!!
Let me say I am soo super excited to part of this wonderful design team there these ladies are soo creative. There are soo many cute washi tapes. My theme today is flowers, I am  using washi tape that has flowers on it.
For my project today I made a Birthday card I dont ever have enought of those. My background paper is from My Minds Eye Miss Caroline 6x6 paper pad, then I tore off the first layer of a 4x4 from a box, then i used acrylic paint and painted the 4x4 square. I put some washi tape on chipboard and cut it out the border on the bottom of the card  and the swirl using My Favorite Things dies. I then used my Gypsy to size up the flowers, they are cut from Cricut cart Flower Shoppe, they were cut on my Expression. I used the Martha Stewart leaf punch, and the birthday sentiment

I am soo happy the way this card turned out I will have to make a few more to have on hand. Be sure to drop in ;TSQ Royal shoppe
