                         Hi everyone

              I only have one person in the contest.She will win! Let's put a few more things in the pot and see if we can't give her a little competition. How about the Extra-Strong-Permanent-Tape-Runner  I used to make the ornaments. This is a great glue tape, and it holds very well.  Crafter's Companion makes this wonderful product. Let's see, the white parchment paper would be great to play with, and you can make some of the ornaments yourself. That comes from Specialty Paper's Plus, my favorite paper company. Let's do 4 sheets.

Last but not least, the 2 sheets from Kanban that wasn't claimed from the last contest . These are beautiful borders.

Be a member of my blog, leave a comment, and your name will be entered. Leave the area your from and it will be entered a second time.(Must have a U.S. Post Box). If you have someone I can send it to in the US and they can send it to you, that will work also. Contest ends at midnight November 18th EST.  Good Luck. And have a scrappy day!!

                           Greetings Everyone

                   I know it's a little early for Christmas ornaments
but I wanted to get these on the blog so I can give them away.

                   The first thing is the paper I used, yes you know,
white parchment paper. This is different, it is text weight, nice and thin for folding these ornaments. This paper comes from a wonderful company called Specialty Paper's Plus. You can purchase this paper at a 10% discount with the coupon code
"HAPPYHOLIDAYS",just put this in the coupon area at checkout. They also have 50 sheets of  Gold Parchment Card stock free with every order. Pop over and take a look.

                      Now for the ornaments. First the credit and directions for these cute little tags goes to Tami. I want to thank her for the video.

                        The stamp set I used for some of the images came from Crafter's Companion. The set is called Playing, from the Adorables.  This set has the perfect size stamps for this project.
The snow flakes and trees fit just right.
                          I also used the extra strong Glue Tape,it has the holding power to keep the sections in place.
                          The video calls for a scoring tool and a cutting tool. I used the The-Ultimate-Crafter's-Companion, it has just the right scoring lines at 3 and 1 1/2 for this project.( Right now they have the The-Ultimate-Crafters-Companion-MEGA-Bundle on sale. What a great early Christmas gift to yourself)
                           The cutting tool is the Clever Cut-5-in-1-Paper-Trimmer. This cutter has a large area for our 12x12 sheets of paper and is very accurate.

Crafter's Companion is having a great prize this month.
The stamps are from the Humphrey collection, 6 full sets.  All you need to do is make a project with a holiday theme.
 Pop over to there Blog  and check out the

These are the 3 ornaments I made.

Now for the best part, I am going to give all 3 of these away.
Would you like to have these for your tree, or a gift tag for someone special?  Be a member of my blog and leave a comment. That's it. The contest will run until November 18th
midnight EST. (Must have a U.S. post box,or someone in the states I can send it to,and they can send it to you.)  Good Luck.

I had a great time making these, I hope you will enter. Lets see
where in the country the entry's come from. When you leave a comment put the state you are from and I will put your name in a second time.

Thank You for stopping by.
And have a scrappy day.
